sushine makes busy!

Being blessed with a whole week's worth of gorgeous dry weather and plenty of sun means yard work, tons of yard work... my poor Vegas worked his tushie off during his brief interlude home between long business trips - I lubs him :-D
Finally got the dumpy lumpy land flattened out enough
to be able to mow this summer...


An ordinary lawn roller won't do when you have a few acres
of really, really bad land to smoosh out...
Big guns hired, big husband to man the machine!


King of the Steam Roller :-D


The horses enjoyed a long week of sunbaths -
they're outside 24/7 now and are super happy campers -
all that grass! nummers!


Old man Jack is starting to put on some muscle,
it's lovely to see!


We even got a few tulips to brighten up 
the front of our house :-)


And now... Vegas is overseas until end of week and the rains have moved in, next come the cold to make the days of rain even more miserable. I don't understand why we can't have a normal fluctuation of good days, bad days - why does it have to be weeks at a time of one or the other?

Strange, strange times we live in.

Time for a hot cuppa tea... laundry... hoovering the house... caring for the critters... then a hot bubble bath and a very early night. I'm absolutely knackered after coming home at 2:30am yesterday - reconnected with an old high-school friend whom I hadn't seen in about 7 years, if not more. He lives in the city so I had to make the drive, yeah being a hermit is nice but I've gotta have limits! LOL!

We yammered away for hours drinking tea, I don't wear a watch so was kinda shocked when I finally took notice of the time - yikes! The drive home was tedious, being super sleepy and crippled with night driving issues - I get blinded by oncoming cars and can't see the road, always scared to miss a turn and end up ass-first in the ditch :-o

Jeeebus heck I'm tired.

I wish chocolate had more caffeine in it.

Who am I kidding, I don't need chocolate I need sleep.

Whatever.

Ah lovely greens and the tulips look lovely. And lol, I usually always see horses on their feet and never lying down. He looks lazy & content.

I'm so happy you guys had a nice sunny week. Not to worry, you're not the only one that's stuck with cold and rain - it started raining here on Friday and it's supposed to stick around for a bit. That and cooler temps, too.
Have a great Sunday!

I have never heard of steam rolling/flattening out your grass....so crazy.
The green does look lovely as well as ol' man Jack!!!
I can't drive well at night either; NOT fun.
