Well we are gearing up to go likely middle of next month. I offered on another property couple of days ago, we just missed getting it, honestly Tom and I are glad we didn't at this time. He said its to much for me anymore and he will be gone.
My canning is done, likely 200 jars or more, I know I have 60 of tomatoes, 40 of juice, 58 of beans and there is tons of other stuff.
If I have time I'm canning some bean soup, vegetable soup, making peach and strawberry jam, garden is pretty much gone. Some tomatoes left and some peppers.
Starting on dressing out the chickens tomorrow, did 2 last week, was so dang hot, I like to collapsed, 105, is not getting it. Want to do 10 more, then the barred rocks need to be a few weeks older so 6 more after that, down to only 4 for eggs.
Sue Anne is doing better, I had to get her off most everthing, back on brand name premarin. Also she is taking protonix for her ulcer, that was a lot of her pain she kept wanting pain pills for, circular issue there. They did start her on Seroquel, lowest dose, it is helping her. Though I'm not thrilled about it, will do it. I have been assured if the situation deteriorates they have someplace to put her in a very nice group home. That takes a load off my mind.
I am going to start out with her and see how she does for a few days, if it looks like its not going to work we will cirlce around and come home, but I'm very optomistic that she will be fine. The newest rent house will be ready after I run over and clean a few things yet and pick up cleaning supplies, its ready and cute as a button. Tom does great work.
He is down for his physical today, after that waiting for his visa and passport back and he will be gone. He is going to a project in Indonesia, island of Borneo. It's in Sangatta, East Kalimantan. He will be supervising the building of a 13 mile conveyor system on pylons, carrying coal from the mine to the port, I assume through the jungle, the project is already way behind. Not sure what part or if its all he will oversee. Contract is 7 months, but they said expect 15. It's in the jungle, in fact on the equator! Sounds like a real paradise to me!
He will be living in a camp situation and is chomping at the bit to go. I have got to see him retiring after this. He can no longer work in Algeria where they have a big project as he is to old. They can no longer go there if they are over 60.
So things are coming together for both of us. My tenant will care for my dog, our 15 year old cat will go with us and my back neighbor will care for the chickens for me. I hope they start to lay as he is wanting eggs.
Sooooo, crossing fingers and toes that all goes well, so far so good. I'm itching to go too.
I really really want to see Yellowstone.
