Another Sunshiny Day, the Gate and coffee…

IMG1771ASipping a cup of coffee and deciding what to write. I am not sure I want to go at what I did yesterday again today. I am sore and need a rest. I am rebuilding the double gate on our land and tore it all the way out. Then I started to dig holes to install new heavy posts. Now I start the plan to build a double gate or a large single gate. The opening is wide enough to allow a very large truck to deliver cow manure or wood and such. It is not for parking and normal use. It needs to be very heavy and durable, for long periods of non use…

Most likely I will continue on the gate today and at least complete the left side that you see in the image. Then I will look over the wood I have and decide; do I need to cut some more or can I accomplish the gate from what I have?

Sammy the Volga's parking spot!

I have a second gate to finish, but I still have too much snow in the way and it will have to wait. I may dig the hole to install the gate post though. This gate is smaller and is the home for Sammy the Volga…

Thus, one big post, dug deep, will suffice…

The image is from the fall time before snow…

The ground is still frozen and I have to take a heavy breaker bar of steel and crack the ground. Then once I get about a foot deep, I can use my post hole digger. Then it goes quick. Though this morning I feel the effects of digging four holes yesterday. The shock of hitting frozen ground with a steel bar is showing this morning. I can hardly clinch my fists…

I woke at 5 a.m. with a 3.6 mmo/l; That is okay for me, for my body is adjusted to it now, but I still am struggling to get stabilized on sugar issues. I need more starch in my diet to help the peaks and valleys and Vova told me to come up today to get a bag of potatoes. That will help in small portions to spread the effects out over a day. Right now I either have extremes of all protein or too much sugar to stabilize properly…

It is so beautiful out this morning. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. George my favorite bird was out on our apple trees this morning and singing to beat the band. He says he is looking for a girlfriend to build a home with. He also said that a bunch of little George’s would be a good idea, since he has found a good home spot…

I agree…

Oh and a cute Chickadee couple has taken to the lilacs bushes and it looks like they soon will build a nest…

Boza is watching and kinda does not know what to think, except birdbrains, that is what they are…

-4 this morning, but the water birds are coming back, the bugs are coming out and Boza and I are working. Just as if it was much warmer. It is all a state of mind and if the spiders can get out and work, so can we…

We are still snowed in and or I should say, still held by melting and freezing water and snow. The roads which are passable early in the morning, become terrible and scary mud baths. While getting to town is possible early, getting home as it warms up, becomes another world completely. The Fish Village is working on dams and roads and they have sufficiently created a pathetic mess out of the road system. The guy in the road grader and the guy on the bulldozer says, They look a okay to them! What ever… index

Have a nice day…
