Good Weekend

September 15th, 2014 at 02:26 pm

Well a super stressful weekend turned into a pretty fun and productive one!

We did lots of community volunteer work, we got the entire barn cleaned out(which took over a week last time), stacked 100 bales of hay in the barn, got my new buck pen put up, sold a goat, got the yard cleaned up, and finished putting poly on the living room archway trim.

Husband, uncle, and father-in-law worked on the Jeep for about 4 hours yesterday too. They replaced the broken part, and now the jeep can start, but it seems something is wrong with the ignition switch too. So they are going to explore that and hope it's a cheap and easy fix.

Got my first tank of propane order. Money came out of our budget billing which I've been paying all year, so no scrambling for cash. Got propane at a steal, for only $1.79 a gallon! Whoot, Whoot!

Feeling accomplished, and glad we we got a lot of necessary work out of the way that needed to be done before winter. Next big project is finishing the horse barn.

I have $275 in cash put back for internet/car payment. I might have to steal some of the money to buy the first set of materials for the horse barn though. Cold weather is setting in quick! It's been in the low 40's the last few nights. So it needs done ASAP.

Car payoff may be pushed back until Oct. Frown But have to think about priorities.

    You were really productive! That propane price is jaw-dropping compared to last winter. Isn't this cool September weather odd? It lights a fire under the need to get winter shelter for the animals. How's your hay price?

    Good price on propane, I just paid $1.99 a gallon.

    Yes. It got cold quick! I am really worried about this winter. I don't want busted pipes again. It always stresses me out, worrying about my animals too. Poor babies.

    Hay was $5 a bale for really nice alfalfa. But my mom bought it. (It's actually her hay, just stored at my house since her hay barn burnt down this year.)

    Horse shelter is of the utmost priority, along with closing off the goat barn windows. Last year we just covered them in plastic, and it kept blowing off. I'd really like to get plexiglass or something this year.
