Another Busy Day On The Mountain

Monday, October 8, 2017

It’s the second week in October and we are starting to have a slight feel of fall on the mountain. Highs still in the 80’s but no 90’s for a few days. It was a beautiful sunny day with a nice breeze most of the time we were walking.

We worked on marking things off our lists today. Max was on the tractor bush hogging the pastures most of the day. We have had a lot of rain this year making the grass and weeds in the pasture very thick and therefore a slow go for the bush hog. He took a break during the hottest part of the day and grilled us some steaks. Mmm good. He was back at it late this afternoon but still has a ways to go. He may have some time tomorrow to finish it up.

Had to stop a few times and blow the sage grass seed off the tractor grill

We walked up to Helen’s house just before dark and on the way back found a small rattle snake in the driveway. YUK! No more walking when it is getting dark without a good flashlight. Anne went to the house and got a shovel for Max to take care of the snake.

Anne spent most of the day paying the ladies bills, and handling all their mail. That chore is done for another month. Of course there was also some house cleaning and cooking.

It was a very quiet but good day at home. Nice to not have to be anywhere today. Thanks for reading our ramblings. Hope you had a good day too.
