Another busy day on my day off........

However I have to say it was a perfect day weather wise as there was no humidity.  It was gorgeous, and for the first time in a couple of weeks the a/c didn't come on, which was good.

I got half of the remainder of the logs moved and stacked.  My back was killing me, so I will complete the job probably on Sunday morning.

I had to nip into town for a couple of things, and then I made a start on the grass.  I managed to get the rest of the field cut, and round by the blackcurrant bushes and the front lawn.  The field will be to cut again the beginning of next week, as it was so long, I had to lift the blades higher, which in turn means I couldn't cut it as short.

It's a long weekend for us here in Ontario, so my goal for this weekend is to cut all the grass.  My potato tops are also dying?  So I need to dig up those also this weekend.  I dug up four tops on Thursday and was pretty disappointed on how few there were on each plant.

Today's Peek from the Past is here  I haven't seen the horses for a while, maybe they are on their summer holidays?

I'm at work again today, actually pleased about that, as maybe I can get a rest........

I was thinking the same thing about your going to work. You get more rest, sustain less bodily injury, and aren't accused of breaking the bloody tractor -- again.

Whenever I'm feeling overworked, I just have to read your posts. You really work so hard. Enjoy the rest of being 'at work'.

You have black currents on your land??? Lucky you, I love those!

I love your blast from the pas, I'm a huge horse lover and rode dressage for six year. I'm dying to get back into it, but would need to get my hands on a car and some extra funds to be able to do it...
