04 May 2021: Did a lot of weed whacking today. I had to follow the shade as it was hot and no wind. So there was a lot of waiting for the shade to hit certain parts of the yard. I am finding little piles of crap in the yard but do not know what is leaving the piles. I set up the trail cam and only captured one lonely doe last night. I set the cam up again tonight so we will see what if anything shows up. Lots of turkey sounds down below us near the river. The one doe that shows up here daily is pregnant. Her belly is getting big.

Domains are due again. If you no longer want your domain, let me know so I will not pay for the renewals likd I did the last time certain domains were due. A simple email will do one way or another.

01 May 2021: It was raining this morning and muggy. I worked in the carport restacking my split wood so it looks neat. The grass is growing like crazy with this rain and warm temperatures. I have been hearing the turkeys down below us but none have made their way up here. The two deer with chronic wasting disease are starting to loose weight. So they are slowly starving to death. The Robins are fighting so it must be their mating season. Same with the lizards.

27 Apr 2021: A nice day with few clouds and slight breeze. Took time out from splitting wood to fly my drone. I even flew it into the carport and took a photo of my split wood. The wind came up and I put it away and continued splitting wood. My grass is growing like crazy due to this latest rain. My hunting instinct has me hunting for new gopher mounds but finding none. As soon as they pop up, I will set my trap line. Other than that my life is pretty boring right now. Damn it, I am getting old. It caught up with me before I was ready. So many things to think about.

26 Apr 2021: This month is getting away from me and that is telling me I probably will not be growing a garden this year. I have to find a good blackberry patch to pick enough for a couple of pies and hopefully the peach tree will produce some good fruit to make a few pies also. The apple tree died due to an ants nest in the root system. The peaches and blackberries will probably take the place of a garden this year. I have been splitting wood today so that kept me busy.

22 Apr 2021: Spent the day bucking up my logs and splitting some of them. They are all cut and under the carport. Now all I have to do is start splitting. It is suppose to start raining tonight and through Monday but all my wood is under the carport so it does not matter if it is raining. I will be dry under the carport. I will have to debark some of the logs before I can split them.

21 Apr 2021: We went up in the hills cutting firewood. Linda did most of the work with dragging the logs to the road and cutting them into pieces where they were easier to handle and load into our trailer. Some of the logs were 18 inches in dia and heavy as hell.

It was windy up in the mountain and windy down here at the house. Suppose to rain Friday late evening and through the weekend which will be a welcome change in the weather. We need the rain bad. I am still undecided whether of not to plant a garden. I have noticed the peach tree down below us is full of blossoms so we should have an abundant supple of peaches this year.
