Just a few random thoughts this morning as I am starting to attempt to write more in the am before heading into the office.
I've been hearing and reading that the Benghazi investigation is rising above room tempurature again. Of course, we now have the distraction of WMDs in Syria? I certainly hope that the public (and especially Congress) doesn't get distracted by it and stays focused on the issues at hand.
The weather has been great but alas, I haven't been able to get much done on the projects around the house due to some physical limitations that I'm seeing the Chiro for a couple times a week. Frustrating to let this good weather go to waste. It's upposed to end this weekend.
Scotch Broom. This invasive plant is enough to drive one to drink. I now have to take a couple hours out of my weekend to cut down all the Scotch Broom along the fence line so that it doesn't proliferate further!
Got a second monitor for the computer and am having some troubles getting the system to recognize it. I think it's using the wrong DVI cable (I need two dual link cables, but only have one) so I think that's the issue. Ordered one last night and it should be here Saturday. Then I'll be stylin'!
The chickens have hit peak production for the year, I think ... 9 to 10 eggs per day. We have 16 chickens. They are 3 years old, so they are slowing down a bit. This is probably a good thing since we don't have enough friends that want to buy eggs to get rid of them fast enough.
Oh, and I really need to get around to mowing the lawn. I wish I could have seeded it with wheat and rye and barley, but Beautiful wants grass... So I'll get the tractor out, and ride around on it the next few days. Then we will need to put the pool up so that it warms up enough to swim.
As you can tell, there is a LOT of work around here to be done before summer gets into full swing. Wish me luck!
