Labor Day Weekend was all about labor for us !
We have a very pretty white fence that surrounds the house. There is an electric fence on the pasture side to keep the cows off of it. White fences get dirty from lack of sun etc… Once year we clean them, think bucket of water with bleach solution and a brush. Hose off and repeat. I channeled my inner Tom Sawyer and volunteered for the task this year. I really thought I would have it done before the kids started summer vacation. Then a week turned into a month and another and now we are in September ! Completing that fence is at the top of my list for September, did I mention there are like 50 or 60 sections and we wash both sides !
Tennessee is VERY hot right now, 90s. Killer. Ready for fall. To cool off I made the kids some fresh popsicles. Lucky for mommy there was quite a bit of the mixture left over and it goes nicely over ice….. with vodka. Just saying….
Charlie got some power tool training today ! He became the “Drill Master” ! Umpa (aka grandpa) was replacing the framing around a water tank, the cows finally did it in. Umpa rebuilt the frame and needed to install it.
My plan for today was to NOT get dressed, I succeeded until 6pm tonight…when “the” phone call came. Uncle Ronald called and said it was time to pick the potatoes ! All six of us piled in the cars and headed down the road for potato picking and family bonding time.
Kids have showered, now to put them to bed…school night !
