Otis and I decided to do this first of many long weekends a little bit differently. We chose to stay home instead of going to the trailer. Even the weather was co-operating for the weekend. Well maybe still a little on the chilly side during the night for our comfort level. Nothing that the propane heater could not have taken care of.
I still had some yard work that I wanted to get done. Seemingly a little bit on the slow side of getting anything done these days. Un-Explainable pain being the main culprit for not getting things done when I had really planned on. Plus thinking that if I am slow at stuff at home I am going to be slow at stuff at the trailer too. So maybe a few day trips just to get everything set up before we stay over.
Once we are there, I loose time to Otis as he has to have his ball time or he gets himself into a mood where he wants to run away from home and go visiting at the house in hopes of someone paying attention to him there. The thought of him making that journey by himself now is just not something that is ever going to happen. Not that he doesn’t know his way, but he likes the horses and sure as sugar he will venture under the fence to go say hi. I am terrified that he would end up getting trampled as all of the horses seemingly like Otis and all have to come and see him. If it was one or two at t time might not even be so bad, but the whole herd of 30 come at once. I have seen them come from the far side of the field to come and visit Otis when they see him snooping around at the gate.
The summer is long so we have lots of time. I have a ton of planting to do when we go during this week both flowers and veg. And then there is the hauling of water, cleaning the winter dust and hiding insects out of the trailer. Setting up the Solar, the TV antenna and the list just goes on and on.
So we are taking it one day at time right now. Suppose to be rain starting tomorrow thru to Thursday. So I think we are looking at a couple of day trips to do inside trailer stuff and then making the over nights commence on Next Friday or maybe even the start of the following week.
It’s not just me late arriving, the Humming birds are still not there, they are at least two weeks late this year, I even think it is longer.
Between relaxing and getting the last of the yard work that I want to have done it is actually really nice weekend. Otis and I have the house to ourselves with the exception of my house mates animals, but they are no bother to me. We all snuggle up in bed together and watch the TV before bed and fight out for our spots in bed before sleep. That is two dogs and a cat and me in a double size bed. We work it out and everyone is happy when we get up in the morning.
All of you having your first long weekend of the summer, I hope you have vast amounts of fun. Be safe. Be careful out on those highways.
