my day

Today was a quiet day, sort of. Started out that way and ended that way. In the middle Brook decided that she could get away with telling me that she did not have to do what I told her to do. So.... I told her she had to go to bed. She told me that she did not. I won. Did not have to spank her either! LOL I told her that if she did not go get in that bed right now that I would call her mama. LOL That did it. After that everything went fine... with her. Then Pat decided he was going to be in a bad mood. I handed him his lunch and told him to go to work. He of course was gripping all the way out the door. Later on he called and said sorry. Good thing I was in a good mood.

After Candy came and picked up Brook I went out and started cutting in the fields.

I love getting on the tractor and cutting the fields. Just riding around having little bits and pieces fly up and hit your back. LOL No really, I don't mind. It is even funny hitting the fire ant hills. I try to run over them with a tire before hitting them with the Brush Hog(mower). It is not fun having a bunch of fire ants hit your back! One thing I have learned is to cut going away from the house. If you start cutting away from the house and head towards it you will send all the rats running that way. Start close to house and send all the rats running towards the creek!. I saw lots of rats today and at least a dozen rabbits. The one thing I did not see today was a snake. Usually I see at least one black snake slithering across the field. I did see a hawk flying over.  I suppose I was disturbing his dinner! The horses did nothing for the longest time while I was cutting then all at once they started kicking and running around like fools. Decided that I was invading their space, I suppose. LOL I rode until dark, lucky for me the tractor has headlights!

That's my day and evening today. I am going to get in there and shower to get all the dirt off of me. I think I will do this again tomorrow.the cutting not the fighting.

  5. Connie was banned from mowing after she ran over a couple of bushes. That was years ago though and when I let her try again recently she did good. She even said she enjoyed it. I like mowing even though I've got a LOT less to mow than you do. LOL with your tractor you could mow my yard in 5 minutes tops...if it fit. Good choice to do the mowing not the fighting again today but even the fighting sounds like it turned out ok in the end.

  6. It sounds like a good day! I have Never actually cut hay myself.......Ive ridden on the tractor and Ive hauled wayyy toooooo many bales in my day (glad I can afford to pay someone now!) You make it sound like FUN. fire ants-ouchy! I stepped on a hill of them once when hunting, sent me home in tears, and I am far from a big sissy. No snakes, probably why so many darn rats. I hope you have a good wednesday!

  7. It takes two to argue and only one to stop an argument.  Perhaps, like me, it's the solitude you treasure on your tractor.  -  Barbara
