Weekends are for WORK


What a long day yesterday.
The kids let us sleep in until 6am. Then it was out to the garden to finish planting the fruit tree orchard.
Then to the MIL to work on the board fence for the horse pasture.
Shortly after we got to the farm, Kat did a face plant on the front step. (forehead, not nose) Coincidentally, she was cranky all day.
Then move boards, help dig holes, clean out holes, pick up posts, line up posts, fill in post holes, tamp dirt down, pick up tools, finish moving boards.
Today I go back with a different crew to finish putting the posts in holes, lining up posts, painting (if no rain), and nailing the boards up to make a fence then sinking the gate posts and hanging gates.
All of my muscles are sore and my joints creak. And I think my sore muscles have sore joints.
I cannot wait for Monday and a desk job.

Of course she was cranky. She missed her g'ma Pat. :)

The kids let you "sleep in" until 6 a.m.? Thank God mine are teenagers and are just like their mom, NOT MORNING PEOPLE! If I did a face plant on the front step, I'd be a bit cranky too. I hope your muscles heal over the workweek.
