Finally did something Iíve been meaning to do since we moved in. While waiting on the insurance inspector to arrive I repaired the flag pole and ran up ol glory!



Also working on getting the last of the posts a previous owner started a carport with out of the ground. Helps to soak them in water to soften up the ground.



And then started on the three stumps. Ugh. I forgot how unfun digging stumps is.

Traded our old stump grinder in on a Vermeer SC292 Stump Cutter. Self-propelled SC292 stump grinder equipped with a 26.5 hp (19.8 kW) EFI Kohler engine providing full-sized power in a compact unit. (NOT CHEAP)

We bid a lot of fairly small scale logging jobs (to big for the average Joe & to small for big scale logging companies). Sometimes residential, where they want trees & stumps removed. Our old one was near wore out, so I upgraded with this one, which will pay for itself PDQ.

I bought our 1st stump grinder a couple years after we established our BOL. After clearing, we ended up with more than a 100 stumps in what we wanted for a cleared garden & pasture area. Digging & burning was slow & laborious, is why I bought a stump grinder

Ummm... I need four trees and stumps removed, some gradng and an addition tacked onto to my TN cabin, there's some serious electrical work as the breaker box needs to be relocated, the stairs to the loft need to be at a gentler grade. The washer and dryer need to be bought plumbed and wired in., the bathroom needs a remodel. And now you know.

Took the car into the shop yesterday AM for an alignment and a couple new tires (will be prorated out - unusual wear); then took one of the young does up to a coworker's place for a week for her "hot date" with his buck, then dragged out her twin and brought the first one back home. Made 3 batches of mozzarella, and 1 batch of ricotta, to clear out the excess goat milk in the fridge. Of course, with the late afternoon milking, and this morning's milking, now have another 2 1/2 quarts of milk in the fridge (goat is currently pumping out in excess of 1/2 gallon per day.)

Nuts. Went out to walk the dogs and raise the flag this morning. Itís pretty windy today but it makes me happy seeing the flag Iíve fought under waving in my own yard. Got the flag up and before I could even get it fully tied off that dang pole bent in half. was able to catch it on the way down but the pole is toast. I knew the pole wasnít the best or stoutest but now I am back to no flag. I guess itíll have to wait for me to be able to get my welder out and make one that will withstand the wind.

I bought a small agri-fab lawn sweeper. It works great

This will give me all the lawn clippings I need for for chicken bedding and for mulching my vegetable garden.

Bought a 12 volt battery charge. mainly for the generator. tried it out and it works great. Hubby is 82 and has a hard time pulling the cord on things like lawn mower etc. Trying hard to be as independent as we can be.

Hmmmmm...I think you need to send me a bottle of that Bordeaux so that an unbiased opinion of the quality of the wine can be given...
