Husband was worried about me walking the hill today (we had the water running down the hill again...), so he suggested that I put chips from the pile we received in the hen yard, making it chips, not mud. This will be good, so the chickens aren't (ahem) deep in mud, and the llamas (who are fed in the hen yard), aren't hock deep. I try to keep it clean, but there has been so much rain, it washed most of what I had put there away.
I don't think that will happen this time, for a little bit anyway. Husband decided to speed up the process, by using the bucket... on the backhoe. I had a HUGE amount of the chips to move. I now have about a 4 to 5 inch deep layer, and it will pack down nicely, it looks like.
I also found out that I have several muscles that I really didn't know I had. And quite frankly, wish I didn't know about now... Ow. The legs were fine. The arms are a little iffy, and the shoulders and back. Oh, my.
I am going to need Tylenol tonight, folks...
And wish me luck. Remember when I said that I was glad of the new people in the one volunteer group? Still am, but I am going to have to get her to communicate with me a bit more. Boss wants me to do performances, and then we play email tag on who, where and how long. I just found out she'd like me to have one more person along, and I had already had to talk like a good fella to get a car pool so I didn't have to drive, (it's through Portland, and I don't do big cities at all well). The driver said, oh, Boss had said X was going too, and I don't have enough room for three. I said, nooo, there's only two. So, I am going to let Boss know that I had only planned for two, and we can work on the other person NEXT performance.
The joys of new systems. Gah.
And I think I am officially sick of the rain. There is pond algae growing on our driveway.
That's just not right...
