I am burnt. I didn't mean to crispy fry myself, I just got wrapped up in what I was doing this weekend, and apparently sunscreen is useless to me. Same thing happened the weekend we went to Sparks, my face got a little red. I never use to be a burner, as a youth I would tan instantly. Now, I must suffer at the hands of the sun.
To be honest, I was hoping for a little color to be rid of this oh so sexy farmers tan. But I had to wear gloves, now my arms are a pretty lobster red while my hands are a pearl white. So much more attractive.
I spent most of my Sunday trimming and sorting tree limbs. My goal is a wattle fence, and so far I have been only able to accomplish this burn and several stacks of wood. My mother has more tree limbs waiting for me. I wanted to do this why again? oh right, I thought it would be an interesting project, that might just look good as well as be functional. This will teach me to think that way. Actually, sarcasm aside, I have a strong belief that once it is said and done, it will be one of my better projects, only because I am determined not to allow it to conquer me.
I grabbed a pennypower while I was in town last night. The pennypower rocks. I remember getting it as a child, looking through the free pets pages. oh I wanted this and that. And even now I still have the habit of looking through the free pets section, first. Not because I need a new pet, but because when we first moved out here, I had a very male oriented goat that was going through our hot fence to meet the ladies. We placed him in the pennypower free pet column, so you never know what you will find. Last night in said section, I found a woman looking to be rid of her horse tank. The largest they make, for only $100. I jumped right on it. We will be picking it up tonight. We have been thinking on picking one up, to be used as a swimming pool for now, and put to other uses later on.
There will be little work done on the homestead today. This morning I have to go into town and finalize my father's future cremation. Last night I had to look for his Naval discharge papers. I actually enjoyed the search. I discovered things about my father I didn't know, and found things that brought up some wonderful memories. This afternoon I have to go to a dentist, and later tonight have an interview, I hope the dentist doesn't decide to yank a wisdom tooth, I need to be able to talk without sounding drunk.
Since no progress will happen today, tomorrow I will have a garden update. Unless there is something else you want to talk about.
Editing to add; Looky looky. I have a chick named after me!
