It has been more than a month since my last blog post. My only excuse is that I have been really busy on the little “Farm.” Since returning from “Road-Trip” 2014, I have been working on numerous projects, repairing a retaining wall, sealcoating a patio and carport, cutting grass, trimming trees, splitting firewood, getting the tractor running, etc… etc… just a few of the projects that have occupied most of my time. I want to get as much work done as possible before the big-freeze arrives. Anyone who knows Kentucky weather knows that the arrival of old man Winter may come as early as late October. Until then…the “Fall” in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky remains my favorite time of the year! The temperatures drop to a comfortable level, the humidity is low and the autumn colors along the Kentucky River come to life!
In addition to numerous projects on the Farm, I spent a week in Ohio and Michigan visiting my mother and older brother. They are doing well and we enjoyed some time together! I also spent the day at Michigan State University where a niece and nephew are now students! It’s always great to visit “Sparty-Land” and even better when family is there!
On the Farm it hasn’t been all work, I managed to have a few cookouts and enjoy some burgers in the Bluegrass with friends!
I also took advantage of the cooler temperatures to cut and split some firewood for the wood-burning stove!
Having a few acres has been a lot like home ownership… there are always some projects to do….
I will spend the next few months working on the Big-Ole-Mare, aka B.O.M. …. better know as my Honda XR650L. I’m learning more about critical maintenance on the ole-gal as I prepare for Motorcycle Road-Trip 2015… to the land of Aztecs, Mayans and Incas!
