Been kinda sorta mostly busy doing the things around the house I been meaning to do. Working on the front steps (man! Tired of shoveling dirt and moving manor stones!) until it gets too warm.
Gardening (things are growing great!). Yesterday I mowed all the lawns. Today I whack-weeded most of them. Also got out the tri-blade whack-weeder and went after some of those black berry bushes trying to take over the back yards. Took out a lot of those! (Not as many as I need to, but, hey, some at least.)
Picked about 5 lbs of blackberries and boiled them down. Strained most of the pulp out and have about a half-gallon of blackberry juice I can do stuff with now. I may pick some more.
MAY have a space in a RV park in Scio, Oregon to watch the eclipse from. Gotta call tomorrow to make sure of it. If not, for some reason, Iâ€™ll probably just get up at zero-dark-thirty that morning and drive to John Day and watch it from the side of the road. Bout tempted to do that anyway. Would be easier.
Been mostly hot around here Wx wise. Had some rain last Saturday night-Sunday morning. We needed it but I sure wouldnâ€™t want to get in the habit of having it around a lot. (Dreading this winter. Really dreading it.)
Speaking of which; the salmon-counting station has been set up down by the river so summer is just about over. Now I check the tree-of-winter-doom for color changes every day. Once that process starts summer will really be over.
