Today, after church, Tim and I fixed a sandwich, ate quickly and then headed to the retirement property. I had two weeks of weeds to take care of in the garden. I am proud to say that except for the corn (which was low priority because it doesn't look like it's thriving and it is too late to replant it) I got it all done. It will require extra weeding and care for a couple weeks, because those weeds got ahead of me but I made some great progress. I also harvested our first zucchini and jalapenos. They were delicious.
Tim was brush hogging and a sink hole opened up under the tractor. We could not believe it. Next weekend we'll take the dump truck up and (hopefully) pull it out. We don't have rain in the forecast until Monday the 26th. We need the break to dry things out.
Those avocado trees I repotted aren't looking so hot, but I read a lot about plant shock, and hopefully they will pull through.

Some friends are moving away to be closer to their daughter. They called because they are downsizing, and they have some things that reminded them of me, and they wanted me to have them. I've never that happen before. I always wonder how others see me, and this will be a chance to find out. I'm very touched. That has never happened to me before.
Back to work tomorrow. Mandated 10 hour days for the week, but life becomes a lot more bearable when we are not working a six day week. A two day weekend gives me not only a chance to catch things up at home, but also time to relax. I watched two more episodes of Downton Abbey. It's a wonder Lord and Lady Grantham can find people to work for them. The place is obviously cursed. No such thing as a happy ending in that house!
I'm reading This Tender Land. Thanks again everyone for your suggestions.
