As always I had a list a mile long that I wanted to get done this weekend, and as always some things didn't get crossed off the list. Still we made a dint in the list. Dh's job was to finished mudding and sanding the drywall in the closets, and he got that accomplished. It was a horrible job as the closets aren't the biggest of rooms, so quite claustrophobic and very hot in there. A job when all completed will be so worth it. I now need to undercoat/prime them to see if there are any imperfections that need sorting out before I paint them. Mind you I have to strip some paint off a door frame; I didn't realize it was painted, and sand and varnish the floors, so we are still a bit away from finishing them.
I got all the grass cut.....YEAH!!! I even got some whipper snipping done; then I lost the ends again and didn't dare ask dh to sort it all out for me........AGAIN!! I got some raspberries picked and frozen. I have enough now to make some jam. Goodness knows when that will be though as I have a lot of other things to do first.
We did get errands ran in between hands, so it wasn't all work all weekend. No housework done though, other than a load of laundry and hoovering up downstairs. Again I'll no doubt get to the housework later on in the week.
I have to work on Tuesday. I don't know how people work outside of the house and try and look after five acres and everything else? If you own an acreage and work outside of the house, can you let me know how you do it all? Dh works hard at work and does all the renovations, so looking after the housework, all the cooking and cleaning and all the outside garden work is my job. I have found it hard this time working as well.
I picked up a copy of the September/October Hobby Farm Home magazine the other day. Check out the website if you have a moment. I saw this recipe on there for Crockpot Potato Soup, that I think I may make sometime.
Also do you think we are in for a cold winter? The trees and bushes are covered in fruit and berries this year, which I always think is an indication of a long hard winter.
This Mountain Ash tree is covered in berries.
I noticed that they are harvesting the field opposite us..........Fall is heading our way!!!
