Francine is back
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Another one of those "What were you thinking?" days
and Francine showed up. Well, she thought we should
have a little fun after work. First, she wanted to fix the
fence so all the nannies and kids stayed put while I
am gone during the fair. Smart idea as it turns out.
There were 3 places where escape was possible and
that has been fixed. Of course, chores came next.
Fairly routine as usual so she kept pretty quiet. Next
she piped up that we should go through the garden
one more time, just in case we missed something
last night. Right again, I had a pail of tomatoes, a few
cucumbers and 6 zucchini that needed to be picked
tonight, just in case we get that inch of rain they have
Now, after dinner, Francine decided we just must
make spaghetti sauce so the tomatoes I picked earlier
this week are not tossed to the chickens. So the sauce
is simmering and will cool in the refrigerator later
so I can freeze it tomorrow.
Guess Francine is out of ideas for today but she is
pulling for me to make a double batch of beef stew
to take to the fair and has the beef thawing out in
So with her prompting, I have logged over 6.5 miles
and feel like it is time to put the day to bed, along with
myself. I will just wait until the dryer stops running
and find a soft spot to rest my head. This was a
winning Wednesday for sure. Thanks for stopping
by and rest easy. Francine has left the building LOL!
