I very much needed a break from work (of the office sort) so I took Friday off this last week. That gave me a whole day to myself to immerse my mind in in everything Geek Acres. I ended up working on my tan while riding the mower, edging and otherwise just cleaning up some unsightly messes. I felt much better after seeing some semblance of order around the farm. [after I posted this I noticed, I wrote about the same subject a year ago.]

Today two of my old high school buddies made it out to the farm today. It's been a while since I had seen Luke or Sean, and I was glad to get a chance to catch up with them. It's funny how your best friends can easily slip back into the role despite how time has caused us to go our seperate ways.

Coy Dan baled the winter wheat off our front field today. It yielded 18 round bales. Not too bad really, considering the frost that killed nearly everything. He's in his summer mode of constantly being in a mad dash. I offered to help run a tractor, I'm sure he'll call on me if he needs the help. He's recently spotted "army worms" destorying fields. He's been forced to spray for them or in some cases cut the fields in hopes of salvaging what he can.

Catch up post

 Time for a quick catch up post. Pictured here is the wheat field out in front of the house and the view to the north. I took this image in a lul between rain showers.

  • The sump pump in our basement quit a couple weeks ago. We don't use our basement much and it took a day or two for us to notice the three inches of standing water. The basement is unfinished but there was some of our junk got wet

  • My dad and I built some shelves and hung some cabinets in the garage/shop building. I finally got it all organized.

  • There are still some brush piles to dispose of, perhaps a BBQ an bonfire is in order?
