Homesteading this week

Last week I worked 4 x 10 hr shifts. This week I worked 3 x 10 hr shifts. With my time I did these things on the homestead:

  • Poured concrete for outdoor shower pad
  • Spouse planted bougainvillea in raised beds made from fence scraps and stuffed with rocks, grass and dirt from the land
  • Drowned a rat that didn't die in the rat trap
  • cleared a few lumps of cane grass to let my goat wander more freely on her cable run
  • Set up additional cable run for goat
  • Got dryer fixed
  • Velcroed the floor mats in the car to stop them from shifting
  • Cut down 3 tree limbs

Most of this was with a 5 month old strapped to my chest.  He's getting to be quite the chunker! but he's happy as long as he can see what's going on.
