MMM 278: One more garden

I’ve got 6 big, sprouty sweet potatoes in the pantry, so at some point today I’m planning to get a little cardio by forking up another section of yard, piling in some compost, making a little fence of oak branches, and planting those suckers.  Because that’s an entirely reasonable thing to do when you have sprouty tubers.

Pretty girl, might be a strawberry blonde.

MMM 277: Again, already?

Yep, it’s already Monday.  I got absolutely nothing done over the weekend because I was on dad duty, and she’s really not at the point where I can rely on her to stay nearby while I do most yard work, nearly all of which is dangerous or excessively dirty anyhow.  It was also much too hot to do much outside, and she wasn’t napping well for me.  I think I watched 27 episodes of Dora.

MMM 275: No more of that jive

Legs are killing me right now.  I had no time to prepare for that event, and I’m paying for it with pain and soreness from my traps (SYWM) to my calves.  I gotta go outside in a minute to feed animals and set the plant starts out, and it’s going to hurt far more than it ought to, plus I’ve still got the old mound to add to, and I’d wanted to build another nearby.  That’s going to be tough to get done this week unless I’m basically fully recovered tomorrow.  I’m a victim of peer pressure, I tell ya.

Her clothes aren’t even trying.

MMM 273: Getting back on track

So I had 3 days of travel followed by 4 days of solo-dad and pretty much everything I needed to do got put on hold for about a week there.  Didn’t even manage to squeeze in a short workout all week, just some walking.  This week I’m going have to try and wedge in a lot of outside chores in lunch hours as best I can.  Lots to do, so let’s get going.

I will do a lot of dips today.  Likely without weight.

MMM 272: Cold snap

Well, it’s the first of May, which of course means that we’re back to cold, rainy weather here on the farm in which I can accomplish precious little outdoors.  Anyhow, here’s some pictures.

MMM 271: Zero Effort Edition

It’s late.  Baby was up late, and I have zero effs to give this morning.  Hopefully completing this gets me some effs so I can get all the way to effort.

Abs.

MMM 270: No naked chicks

I really meant to take a picture of the new chicks out in the barn and have “naked chicks, above the fold!” as a scare title, but then we’d be waiting another half hour.

Let’s just pretend I did that and it was hilarious.

Pretty smile.  Pretty girl.

MMM 269: Mid-life Crisis

I think I’m having mine.  Feels more like I’ve been in one my whole life, but my mind is desperate for something worth doing and highly remunerative.  I doubt highly that ‘shroom farming is the key to riches, but it looks like an awesome hobby to start, particularly after I’m rich.  Rich Dad, Poor Dad really messed with my head, and I’m trying to get my thoughts in order so as to act on them posthaste.  Tushar, help!
