MMM 295: Ides of October

It’s seriously autumnal here now; the sassafras are bright red and turning brown, and the maples and sycamores are half naked.  Speaking of half nakedness…

Pole star.

MMM 294: Rainy October Monday

Long day yesterday.  Wife took horse for trail ride in newly-repaired trailer, Possum was inconsolable, had to take her to church by my lonesome, then my parents came for visit in the afternoon through dinner time.  Had to do some dishes this morning and jar up some beef broth.   Pics now.

Pretty smile.

Belly button rings are so 2003.

She looks cranky.

Looks like an outtake from a photo shoot based.

I can’t do this and that’s okay.

The gym dom look.

Tasteful monochrome.

Are those phragmites!?  Get out of there miss, I’ve got some extreme weeding to do.

Belly tattoos are so 2006.

And the week begins.

 

MMM 290: Now the real work starts

We close on Thursday, so that alone is going to be an ordeal as wife, Possum, and I spend hours in the car getting the cashier’s check and then signing all the documents.  After that, eesh.  Gotta plant some trees, find a builder, talk to the engineered septic guy, find a guy to lease some acreage for hay planting, make some plans, get a building loan, consider borrowing from my 401k since the market’s sure to tank next year anyhow, get the landscaping in shape here, get the house and barn and fencing built and the well dug, sell this house, move 2 horses and 2 dogs and 13 chickens and 3 cats and a house full of stuff, and keep my awesome job going long enough to pay for all of that.

Next year at this time, hopefully, it will all be okay, but right now I feel like I’m going in for major corrective surgery or something.

Motivational statements in photos are sooo 2009.

MMM 286: No new land yet

Seller on the current land declined to counter, so we raised the offer and are waiting to see if we hear anything back.  My guess is that they aren’t terribly motivated, so we might have to keep looking.

Not gym attire.

MMM 280: Slowest work day of the year

Well, for those of us who actually work, it’ll likely be a painful crunch as we try to get things accomplished while 60% of the staff is officially out and 20% are just keeping their desks/cubicles/booths filled until they feel like they can duck out.

I had a weird dream.

wtf.jpg

No, it didn’t look anything like that, it was about moving/replacing part of my fence that the idiotic former owners put across the property line.  Neighbor says he’s building a garage and the two things might end up too close together.  Time to build a privacy fence on that side or just sell the place.

Thick and monochrome.

MMM 276: Early Summer

Days are about 15 hours long now, so I can’t say I’ve wanted or needed to spend much time indoors lately.  I think about all those folk who live in cities and can’t just spend hours and hours out in the yard or the woods every day and think : heh, chumps.  I found wild strawberries growing in my landscaping the other day.  Entirely wild, planted by God. It was delightful.  Those poor bastards living in terrorism targets cities will never know such simple joys.

Crooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosssssssssfiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.
