Saturday morning we got up and got ourselves going after visiting with our blogging friends. We recorded Pioneer woman as the one at 0700 was a new one. I headed outside with the hula hoe and wheelbarrow. Ken worked on the electrical for a while. After about an hour and a half or so, I came inside to take a shower and make our breakfasts.
Ken went back outside and I decided to get some dinner stuff going early before it got too hot. I roasted some good veggies and made mashed potatoes for Ken for dinner.
I went outside to pull the electrical cord through the conduit in the ground while Ken unrolled the cord. Worked pretty well, he's getting much closer to getting it done.
John and Karen got home around 1300 and Ken had to run over to move our truck he'd parked in the driveway to make it look like someone was at home. In talking with them they invited us over for Happy Hour later in the day.
About 1600 Ken decided to bar b q the chicken for dinner, so I sat outside with him while he cooked. Eventually it was done and then time to head next door.
|Good bar b q chicken|
We found them on the front deck of their house so visited there awhile and then headed out back to spend some time with Jack. After it got dark it was actually a little cool so they started a fire in their huge fire pit. A little later it was time for us to head home and have a late dinner.
Sunday morning at about 0530 I got up and started the coffee. It was a horrible night of allergies and not sleeping :( We had our coffees and computing and I decided it was not a good day to head outside this morning. The hula ho would have to wait!
After breakfast I finished a book I had started a while ago. Hasn't been much time recently for reading. It's been kind of a slow day. Ken did some things outside and then asked if I wanted to go for a little ride. Ok. We just went around town and took a few pictures of the onion fields that were just picked. Back home and just sitting here being lazy, both of us..dinner is made (leftovers from last night), so not a lot we feel like doing. Looks like we'll have our own Happy Hour in just a bit.
|All picked and bagged by hand all over the Mason Valley|
|Headed down the road just because...|
|Several of these homes everywhere...abandoned..just|
bought for water rights to water the fields..so sad..

Monday morning we were up after 0600! Better sleep than the night before obviously. Had our coffee and tea along with visiting with our blogging friends. Time to get out of bed and outside. I decided to work on the back driveway area and finish off a row of ragweed that I didn't finish. Thought I'd show you a picture of what I'm hula hoeing in the mornings.
|This is what our desert looks like when it's been untouched by|
|This is the stuff I've been pulling out all over..|
|The row of green is what I pulled out this am.|
|All gone..til next time|
|In the fall and winter it will turn brown and die..easier|
to pull out then, but I don't like to wait until then..I
want it gone!
|This area was full of the ragweed, all gone I just left the|
sagebrush. That we like!
Ken greased and tightened wheel bearings on our 20 foot trailer today. Too hot out there for me this afternoon, but he got it done!
