The To Done (Mostly) List



Busy, busy weekend. One bobcat and 27 tons of rock later, Lila's lost her bestest toy ever.



After dealing with inches and inches of snow and then so much rain all spring, we decided to double the gravel the size of the barn lot - behind the barn. Maybe it's just me, but doesn't this picture just reek of heat and humidity?



Farm sitter extraordinaire Barbara came out and we gave Hank a much needed bath.



The dye garden was weeded and mulched.



The new doors have been fitted and hung.



Some open work space in the wash room.



And the carpet has been found (and vacuumed) in the wool room.

Of course the to done list is just temporarily done and the to do list just keeps growing, but still, it's nice to feel like I could go in and start weaving on the Punkin throw...

I should put that on my list.

In all of this heat you managed to accomplish all of those tasks!!! What a great way to start the summer! It must feel like a breath of fresh air!

kudos!
Muggy, hot....steamy and one weird spring. Hank must have appreciated his bath. Where has Lila been sleeping????

What kind of cruel person takes away her bestest toy? ;-)

It's looking good. I have to admit sometimes I actually do put enjoyable things on my list. Somehow then I don't feel guilty when I do them.

I know, I'm weird.

I see you found the screen doors! Yay! Uh...why don't you and Saint Tim come on over this weekend and we can start on the list here? (Mike finally did it...he bought a Bobcat last weekend, so our barn cleaning is on the to-do list). You can bring Lila because I see a big pile of gravel in my future....

You've been busy. I didn't know the carpet had been lost, glad you found it ;-)
Don't you love how some things just stay on the to do list forever?!

Hank looks hot. Maybe he needs a pool to sit in. Can't imagine being that hairy in that weather, but then he's stronger than I am. Lila is such a doll and should keep sleeping in your bed. :) So much work was accomplished...that has to feel good!

Hank looks like he is miserable!

Your wool house always looks so clean that I was surprised to hear that your carpet was lost. Glad you found it :) I LOVE gravel, it makes a muddy farm yard look so clean.
