You would think that I ditched all the work inside when I worked outside but that is hardly the case.
I did both.
This morning I made my bed, picked up stuff in the living room put it in its place and I put on a couple pounds of dry red beans to cook, they cooked on low while I was outside working in the yard and working on the outside of the house.
First I nailed down the nails that had worked up over the cold Winter. When the lumber in the deck gets cold and draws up the nails ease up and I trip on them or worst, I get my sock hung and it rips.
Then I did the same to the metal shed, and I did hear a few things fall and I had to go inside to put it back into its place.
Clearing more land can be hard at times and it most certainly is an upper arm workout. I trimmed back about a five foot by thirty foot section. The old hedge bushes had grown tall and were leaning over, some small as a pencil some big as ball bats, I only trimmed the ones that I could cut with the loppers. I intend to buy a chainsaw, soon.
When I came inside the beans were done. I started dinner, we had red beans and rice. The red beans that were left over I canned, as well as one jar of red beans and rice that was left over. I have learned to can my food and it lasts so much longer, plus its ready to eat when I don't have time to cook, another plus is its cheap and healthy.
After dinner I started the laundry and I got that finished by time the beans were finished processing in the pressure canner. Then I washed up the dishes.
I decided to sit down for a little while so I clipped coupons and listened to the t.v., there really isn`t anything on interesting this Sunday night, I did catch one episode of bar rescue I had not seen before.
Now I am all set for the week ahead of me.
How was your weekend, did you get anything accomplished? get rid of anything? Clean up a space?
