The past two weeks I’ve immersed myself in three projects:
Project# 1 has been putting together a bid on a commercial project. (see blueprint above)
Project #2 Writing a book.
Project # 3 Replanting the Apple Orchard
Project #1 has brought with it a learning curve that has left my mind smoking @ the end of each day. Don’t get me started on government red tape. If a person isn’t smart enough to wear safety glasses when cutting steel, or keep their electrical chords out of standing water then no amount of “tool box” meetings are going to help and they should probably find a different job.
It is a combination journal and collection of true stories ( horse thieves, blizzards, lost children on the open prairie ,a four foot tall white wolf, Native American midwives delivering white settler’s babies,…..)
Here is a photo of my wife and I just after I crossed the finish line of my 84 mile adventure:
Project # 3 involves replanting 38 apple trees in the orchard for the third time. This week I took the time to mark where the new trees will go: If you look real close you might be able to see the yellow flags:
We’re still shooting for Saturday April 4th 8:00 AM if you want to be a part of history (An apple tree planting party- if you’re reading this, you’re invited- remember, I will dig the holes with an auger so it won’t be that hard.)
It’s been a spell since I written anything on the blog, didn’t want anyone to think I’d given up blogging. I’ve invested most of my creative energy in this book manuscript.
What have you been up to?
