My job is to carry the "reel". It's a reel that is attached to a heavy metal post and I unreel the electric wire as my husband, Al carries the plastic step in posts and sets them where he needs them, and hitches the wire onto them. After that is done, we check to make sure that the water lines are in good shape, no leaks, etc. And we make sure that the water tank fills up with water, and doesn't overflow or quit working.
When doing the fence and water line work,I'm pretty sure we get at least a mile of walking in. It feels good too, this time of year isn't too hot or cold. Now if we had to do this in the heat of the summer, forget it!
We make sure we enjoy our work as we walk along. Nothing like being back away from everything, cars, telephone, tv, etc. It is so quiet back at our pond, except for the birds, frogs and wind. That is my kind of day! Emily thinks its great to stop by the stream and look for tadpoles and snails. She took a container this time, but wasn't able to catch the tadpoles. They are really big, and fast.
Cheese make day tomorrow...so I need to scoot and get some stuff done. Before we make cheese tomorrow, I have to run a few boxes of cheese to the UPS drop off and get them shipped out, and we have a customer stopping by around noon. I'll be getting her order cut and ready for tomorrow.
Enjoy the week! Looks to be sunny around here! Glad for the dry weather, we'll get a lot of outside stuff done before it's time to head to the hayfields.
