I Beat Isaac and Got the Yard Work Done

Up and out by 7:00 this morning so I could get the yard work done before we get the rain from hurricane Isaac.  First thing I did was to set up a table in the shed so Renee and I can start sorting jars to see exactly what we have.  Then did the horrible weed whacking, the weed eater just kills my arms and shoulders but I did it any way.  By the time I finished the weeds the grass was dry from the dew.  Did the grass, added some stakes and wires for my fall peas, picked the garden, and spray painted some garden signs.  Finally came in and took a much needed shower at 1:30.  The only thing I need to do is collect eggs, I was going to do it while I was out but 2 girls were on the nest and I didn't want to disturb them.  We have been getting about 15 eggs a day from the 19 hens which is excellent.
I have pears that need canned but I am just too darn tired to do anything else today.  I will try and get them done tomorrow morning.  Ron usually helps me can on the weekends and that helps out.
Later, take care.
