The hay is not in yet. We had threats of storms all day long yesterday and it takes a good hour for the hay man to get here in his tractor and I pay him by the hour plus the hay just was not drying anyway. So I was not able to commit. The storms just kept passing us by though!
So hopefully we will bring in whatever is dry today. Today is Alissa’s last day – after this I have no-one to help me throw the hay up until the weekends. Today we have to bring in the hay.
This morning I have to haul the big Hereford steer out as he has been sold (I loaded him into the stock trailer last night). I need to be driving down the lane by 5.30am. Then when I return: milk the cowm then hitch up the rake and turn the reluctant hay. Then call in the hay men and stand by to throw bale after bale in a hurry. Thank goodness Alissa is still here to do the chores for me while I am on the road and help with the hay. .
Yes. A busy day.
I hope you have a busy day to.
PS – I found my glasses after a couple of weeks of them being lost and MY GOODNESS – this house is filthy!!!
