Yesterday Paul and I were on our way to the acreage when we got to do a little D tour. A house was being moved so that means Wide Load, and no room to pass. The road was blocked off by two road workers and they asked us to go around. So we drove in a U and as soon we had a view on the moving house, I took a picture of course. It’s not uncommon and I’ve seen it before, but it always amazes me to see how a house can be moved just like that. LOL
When we drove up the driveway, we saw a beautiful buck in the pasture. As soon he noticed our truck, he ran off into the woods. Beautiful animal! What is not so great is that I’ve seen a ground squirrel or gopher in the field that is not fenced off yet. Couldn’t get a good view, he disappeared into the ground very fast. I definitely need a rat terrier that goes after those rodents.
When we arrived at the cabin, Paul said he wanted to mow the grass. While he did that, I cleaned up the cabin. It was quiet a mess from our work in the weekend. I took the second folding table in the cabin so now there is one table with tools and stuff, and one empty table to work on if needed. More overview this way. When I was done I prepared our lunch. I had water melon and salmon sandwiches for us. It was very warm weather so this was the perfect meal. It was lovely!
Paul did a great job with mowing. The driveway looks nice again and the entrance of the driveway looks awesome. There was so much overgrowth there, but he mowed it all down. Today we went again to do some maintenance at the trailer. The roof needed some cleaning and there were some minor leaks that had to be taken care of. Before I got into the trailer, I noticed a dead tiny mole in front of the little deck. Taz had left me a present again! What a good cat she is. A few days ago she left a dead mouse in the cabin for me. LOL It’s her way of telling me she is doing her work and earns her food. I cleaned up some cupboards and got rid of all kinds of garbage that we seem to collect somehow. I always clean up after me, but one way or the other, there’s always things that pile up and become garbage. LOL I also got my FIRST HARVEST!! YESSSS! It is not that much, but it’s SO cool! I picked seven tomatoes, three cucumbers and the zucchini. That’s going to be a nice salad and maybe a zucchini bread. The potatoes and carrots were not ready yet. Next month they will. After we had a snack we went home again. On our drive home we saw a hawk diving into the ditch to catch something. We just passed when he flew up again, but empty handed. His prey got away. Paul was amazed when he saw this. He had never ever seen a hawk go after a prey so that was really great.
