It’s been a pretty good week Back in the Bush.
On Tuesday, we had our driveway graded. This is kind of a big deal. It was extremely bumpy and in one area, when we were having heavy rain, it became a big squishy bowl of oatmeal, basically. Now it’s smooth and dry and fantastic. We also had our lawn tractor repaired (major repairs) JUST before the warranty expired. Woot!
When I came home from work Tuesday morning, the man we hired to grade the driveway was just getting started. Hubby (jokingly) said to me, “I don’t want you to even see this guy, go in the house.” I thought maybe he was some scary-looking dude so I was like “What are you talking about?!” He finally explained that our bulldozer guy was a “muscle bound pretty boy”. And I concur. Bow chicka wow wow! I mean, I had to sneak a peek after all that! I’m pretty sure our driveway is going to need to be graded again. Pretty SOON.
The dirt road that leads to our house was also graded this week, making the approximately four mile drive to the highway SO much nicer, and you don’t have to creep along so slowly. It’s the little things, peeps!
On Thursday, after picking the girls up from school, we went to a Farmer’s Market. We got kettle corn, zucchini and yellow squash, a hair bow, and a pear tree. I’m not even joking. Quite the combination of items, right?! At least there wasn’t a partridge in the pear tree.
I love that Farmer’s Market and it was hubby’s first time going. He loved it too, in fact he’s the one who did all the buying. He got the kettle corn for Shelbie, and the hair bow for himself. KIDDING! It was for Elayna.
Afterwards, we went to our butcher and picked up the venison we had dropped off last weekend. We now have a couple different kinds of deer sausage, venison burger, cubed deer steak, backstrap, and ummm I think that’s it. We also dropped off another deer to be processed. AND he gave us a sample of some Venison Snack Sticks (Slim Jims). I expected them to be good but OMG, it was seriously one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. The girls loved it too. We ordered some of those to be made from the deer we dropped off today. Can’t wait!
Tonight, Byron got the family 4-wheeler (ATV) running. We’re going to have a blast on that thing.
And now, he is out hog hunting. Good times!
Life is quite different for me than it was before I met Byron. And I love it! In fact, I love it so much, it inspired a song. I made a remix of Taylor Swift’s song, Red, which begins “Loving you is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street”. My version: “Loving you is like driving a four wheel drive truck down a muddy dirt road”. WAY more fun. Watch out, Taylor, here I come!
Tomorrow is the University of Florida’s Homecoming Parade. This is also kind of a big deal around here. I’m going to go with my niece and her baby girls.
I should probably bundle up.
OK, my friends. I have only slept about 3 hours in the past 30 hours,
and I’m getting kinda loopy.
It’s time for some shut-eye!
