i am quoting an old Who song. my bro said he would paint yesterday. i thought yeah i can kick back this time. i got down there in the morning to have it all cut in before he got there. that would make it ready to roll out and be done with it.
mary and i cut both bath rooms in before lunch. we ate then waited. no show. i wondered where the hell is that indian? we went ahead and finished painting the bathrooms. when something gotta be done, ends up you gotta do it yourself. that reminded me of the lyrics ‘dont get fooled again, no no’.
there was a section of sheet rock that looks like it needs replacing. it got wet. the paper and tape came loose and it swelled up. maybe a section that is one foot by a foot and a half. for the sake of getting done i just painted over it for now. i know that will bother me until it it is cut out and replaced then painted over. a job for later. i figure i did my share of work.
when i fed the chickens this morning i noticed the ground is totally saturated again. we had a lot of moisture this winter. the ditch in front of my house has water running in it. it usually dont. i am happy though that my pond is full. now i have to find ways to stock it all over again. i want a good fish pond when i get older.
all that moisture has me anxious to start gardening. i am waiting for our spring dance. once we do that i will have permission to plant my garden. i have a feeling that this may be a good growing season. the past two years we have been in near drought conditions. i will take the gamble and plant two fields worth. that is besides my grow boxes and vines crops in front of my sheds.
i might take advantage of the ground being wet. it will be easy to pull up the old corn stalks. the grand kids were doing that while playing outside. they had no problem pulling the stalks up. i need to do that then burn them off. my garden will be ready to till when ever it dries out some what.
i may have my new (to me) tiller by then. my cuz said he ordered the new carburetor for it. it wont take him long to put it on. he fixed the tires by putting tubes in them. they are holding air. that will work. i hope to get plenty of use out of that tiller.
i noticed two places where i transplanted wild onions previously. they grew in both places. i can see the ditches are full of wild onions. i used to tell people to do that when i worked in the traditional foods program. if they had listened, they would have their own wild onion patch now.
