A little of this...

A little of that...
It has been a pretty laid back day today.  V worked to pull off part of the old drywall off in the addition.  He stopped for the day. He can't remove any more drywall because all the barrels are full and he can't start reframing for the new window until the stairs are removed outside, the siding off and the old door removed.  And late in the afternoon is not the time to start something like that. So we're on hold. If the weather holds he'll probably tackle some of the siding tomorrow. It looks like the weather for the next few days is pretty favorable for that kind of work.
We were hoping for rain today.  In fact, the radar showed that it was raining here.  HA!  we had a few sprinkles but that was it.  Of course that lovely rain front that we watched all day moving toward us fizzled before it got here.  I knew I should have washed the car this morning!
I15 is off at a movie this afternoon... with a girl!  It seems the lad is growing up....
After I dropped him off, I went to the farm store to pick up some more chicken feed (I got an extra bag since they were having a sale) but then I was lured in by the end of the season sale at a garden center. I did manage to show some restraint.  But I did end up with 4 one gallon pots blackberry bushes.  Mmm...  now to figure out where to plant them.  I also got a couple of ferns since we will soon be landscaping that northwest corner between the house and the addition.  It is pretty shady back in there since the big hackberry tree blocks most of the sun  And I love ferns.  I have distinct memories of crawling around in the ferns at my parent's when I was little.  It was like there were tunnels in there.
Oh, and I almost forgot.  Nancy at Little Homestead in Boise is celebrating her one year blogiversary with a giveaway.  Check it out! She is giving away a lovely gift basket.  Of course, I almost hate to tell you.  The more people who enter the less chance I've got to win....
Ah, of to do laundry...

  1. Wow, y'all are really busy. Don't you just hate it when the rain fizzles out before it get to you? I do. And our poor car needs a bath too. And when the snow is coming. I love snow and it is sad when it is snowing big on its way and I am expecting a blizzard and it either fizzles or splits and goes around us. :(

    Blackberries...YUMMMMMM I know where you can plant them. ;) LOL

    Laundry, how fun...I have some to do today too.
    I will check out Nancy's blog. I like the name of it too. :)

    Take care, Janet W

  3. All though we have more strawberries, raspberries and (almost) blueberries than we can use, I'd love to be able to grow blackberries. I've tried but we just don't have enough heat for them. Blackberry jam? Oh, that sounds wonderful!

    1. Amazingly enough, these plants have berries set on them and one is even still blooming. I just need to figure out where they will live. I LOVE blackberries. These are all the thornless varieties (which I've never had).

  5. I had to tear out the blackberries last year in hopes of selling the house, boy do I miss them, they grew so well here!
