--OK, this bluebird is driving us crazy. He somehow hangs on the window and pecks at the glass. This goes on all of the time.
--We sold all 33 large bales of the alfalfa mix to one guy. He called yesterday, was here in one hour to look at it, pulled some apart and smelled it and said he’d take it all and pick it up Friday. Gave us $650 to hold it until then.
He’s a cattle buyer so he knows his stuff. Bringing in a semi and will pick it up in one load.
--We have 6 large rounds of the same alfalfa mix that I expect to sell today. I listed it last night and we already have one inquiry. People are getting nervous because it has been so hot early in the year and they’re afraid it’s going to get dry and hay prices will go way up or there won’t be any available.
--We have another 120 or so of small squares of the hay on a trailer to be delivered today. Iowa and the neighbor picked that up yesterday while spiritbear was driving the truck and trailer. While it wasn’t as interesting as the backhoe experience the other night it wasn’t without it’s challenges either. Heavy load, gooseneck trailer, hilly terrain and a manual transmission. I managed. Couldn’t make it up one hill and had to back down. That was fun.
--Got an email about my first day on the new job. In it we’re told that it will be a “working lunch” so bring something to eat. That’s my style. I’d rather skip lunch or grab a quick bite to eat on a break rather than wasted an hour out of my day for a lunch break.
--One of the ladies they hired just retired from 27 years of teaching school. She’s older than me.
--My Amish outing went fine. It was warm but they had a fan so that kept things tolerable. Lydia gave me two homemade angel food cakes for coming out.
She is so sweet. Her son is leaving next week for California to have a stem cell procedure done in hopes of improving his symptoms of MS. I hope he gets some positive results. He’s such an neat young man. Very intelligent. I really enjoy visiting with him.
--While I was there I think I may have gotten Iowa a custom hay cutting/baling job.
--Went ahead and ordered our house plans. Scary and exciting at the same time.
