Salutations gang! Have a sit down while I jog off and grab a fresh pot!
I hope everyone who celebrates it had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. It hardly seems possible. Didn`t we just have a Memorial Day weekend?? Where the heck does the time go? Anydoodles my ruminations on possible time/space continuums aside our long weekend was busy, busy, and busier!
We started out hauling wood and over the course of three days got eight loads split, hauled and stacked. My lower lumbar is reminding me that I`m not quite as young as I used to be! There used to be a time I could go all day and not flinch. Now my old.... I mean classic body flinches when I even THINK about what I used to do back in the day!
We also did some garden work. Our pumpkin patch is drying down and for the life of us we can`t figure out what to do with so many already ripe pumpkins!
If we bring them home our geese and chickens will have them gutted before you can say ‘Pumpkin Innerds’! But if we leave them in the patch whoever decorated this one may come back for more. (Yup that’s a bear’s claw mark)
So we opted to leave most of them for now. Mayhap the bear might not come back but we know full well the poultry will be sniffing around. Well, if poultry sniffed that is.
We did grab a few to give to our family for decoration.
Call him Pumpkin-Head!
And some of our Indian corn too! Isn`t that just the prettiest colored corn you ever saw?!
After chores we headed up to my sister-in-laws for a cookout and get-together. She has one of the most lovely landscaped yards I`ve ever seen, so I thought you may enjoy a peek yourself. Gert sure has a green thumb!
Actually her name isn`t Gert it`s Roxanne. On my hubby`s side we have a Roxie that’s called Gert, a Deanna that’s called Berf and a Jeff that`s called Elmer. Mister and his one sister missed the nicknames it seems.
Although sometimes I have a few names for Mister and it ain`t Pumpkin-Head. *Smiles wickedly*
