Whoo, boy, it’s been a busy day. Stayed out late last night at the local bar chatting with some nice local folks and drinking entirely too much. Sure was fun, though! Alarm went off at 7:00, and I forgot that this is Saturday, so my back-up alarms don’t go off. Woke up at 8:00 thinking, aww, crap. Got the herd fed and then started making trips to the co-op. Got 1550 pounds of fertilizer and 400 pounds of grass seed, which took three trips to get home.
As I was taking the first load home, my former roommate messaged me wanting to do breakfast, so after picking up the third load, I headed down to meet him and his boyfriend. It was good to catch up. They’re hilarious together, and although I’ve said it before (maybe even on here), I really wish the very best for them for many, many years. They’re both awesome people.
So, finished lunch and then headed home. Got the last of the fertilizer unloaded and started to start doing my main task for the weekend when I got sidetracked getting the spreader hooked up, greased, and ready for tomorrow. We’re still getting little gusts today, and I don’t want to screw up spreading; grass seed and fertilizer are stupidly expensive, and I don’t want to waste them.
Anyway, I finally made it around to my main task for the weekend: getting the southern tent taken down and putting cinder blocks around the southern auto-waterer to hopefully keep the animals from damaging it (and as an added benefit, adding some insulation, too). I got all that done, got the broken materials thrown away, took some stuff to storage, and I’m finally sitting down to my computer today. Whoo, I’m beat!
But no rest for the wicked, as they say. Tonight is karaoke at the same bar from last night (I hope I don’t become an alcoholic living out here with a bar so close and full of nice people…), and I’m gonna go again. I went last time, and it was kinda fun. I might sing something tonight, but I dunno. Might just let others do it.
I haven’t made any progress on the Shane and Colton short story in the last few days. I need to get my rear in gear and get back to it, but Thursday was a late night at work, yesterday was a late night at the bar, and today was just crazy-busy. Tomorrow promises to be busy, too, between spreading the seed and fertilizer and doing my typical weekend chores. Was thinking about making chili this weekend, too. Dunno about that; it depends on how worn-out I am tomorrow and how motivated I still am to do it. There’ll be other weekends for it.
Gotta run. I want to get a little done on Shane and Colton before it’s time to get cleaned up and off to karaoke.
