We are supposed to a wet week.. :cry: Rain.. sleet and freezing rain so far today.

We have worked on our Skinny Farm project a little each day so far. Yesterday morning it wasn't as cold as expected. We dressed better for it also.. so it wasn't too bad out there.

I am not sure what what's up for today?

Rainy here and windy today. We had really heavy rain overnight into this morning. Started letting off a bit around 530 this morning.

Hello Randy.. 8) There has been some strange weather out there.

We are still cold and rainy. Although here today.. it never got heavier than a mist. I did get more work done on our Skinny Farm today. I hurt my back early on.. so that slowed me down a bit. I took a break.. first resting it, then doing some stretching. I was able to go back out and do some easier stuff.

We have our Mill ride tonight. Dave is gone again.. so Laurie, Angela and I. I will probably refrain from riding [because of the back] It will probably be our last week of this for the season. We plan to start our road ride. next week.

My first day back at work. temps in low 40s to start and dropped into the high 30s and was windy with wind chill at one point being 27! And we had snow flurries most of the day with an outright snow storm for a few minutes late this afternoon. Mowing grass in a snow storm is kinda weird! :? :lol:

They had said some sun yesterday.. and they were wrong... :cry:

We did get a ride in last night. Dave has been gone most of the week.. Angela came and rode with us and stayed for dinner.

I didn't do anything but some house work.. and work on my back. It's not horrible, but it feels like doing much with it, would hurt it.

More rain today and tomorrow... :cry:

I will maybe go pick up more lumber.

hmm I don't remember Thursday.. :roll:

I did get more lumber yesterday.. and Thursday. I worked on our skinny farm yesterday. It was actually better out than expected. We did have a shower come through at around 5:00..but not bad.

I made good headway on it yesterday.. and we will work on it today. It is supposed to be a fairly nice day today.. better tomorrow. We have to supervise something for an event at the mill tomorrow [the best day we have had in weeks] :cry: Dave is at that race [working] and Angela is helping her middle daughter move back home from college.

I remember Thursday. It was raining and we only did 4 lawns that we do not bag and then worked on some of the equipment.

I really remember yesterday. I showed up for work and my helper lives there so normally he comes out about 10 or 15 minutes before our start time. Well, he did not come out so I rang the door bell and there was no answer. Well, his cell phone is on the fritz, so i called the house phone and his mom answered. When I ask about him, she said he was not home. he had gone out the night before and not returned. (they did find him later in the day). Anyway I had to start mowing on my own and got two lawns done before my helper from 2 years ago came and helped the rest of the day. Not sure what happens going forward though. :thinking:
