Almost done

I have had the past 3 days off from work and I got working on the back 40! As can be seen fro the pictures on the last post, A lot of weeds and grass needed to be knocked down. Well I put the new Bush Hog through it's paces and it took a day and a-half to get it done!

This is the area behind Terri's house.

And this mine. As you can see, there are a few trees the came up in the spring of 2012.. Mostly Maples and one Pine tree. It made for some tricky maneuver's with the Bush Hog!

Starting next Sunday, I will have another 3 days off and this is what I will be working on then. In that mess of grass and weeds is a stack of wood I have to get out of there and eather clean up and get undercover or burn.

This one is several bags of leaves that will get turned into the garden area.

More wood and an old brush cutter in this one!

And lastly, There is a few logs in there that need to be cut up for fire wood and stacked somewhere.
 So tonight it's back to work and sleeping during the day until Sunday.

I wanted to tell you about the new recipe that I found on line. As I'm single and do have too eat and I want a slice of cake every once in awhile, This works for me!

What you need is:  One box of Angle Food cake mix and One box of any other flavor cake mix you want.
Combine both mixes in an air tight container  mix well and when you want a slice of cake, place 3 Tablespoons cake mix and two Tablespoons of water in a microwave safe cup or bowl. mix well and microwave on high for 1 min. Check to make sure it's done (It may need another 30 sec or so) and top anyway you like. For my first batch I mix Angel food and Dutch Chocolate.



  1. It's always interesting to see what you find when you brush hog! Looks like you still have plenty to keep you busy. I'm glad you're feeling better - losing someone close to you can be devastating. Keep your chin up and keep blogging!

  2. Tom,

    I can see you've been real busy with the brush hog. You've got all kinds of work to keep you going on your days off :-)
    Great idea for cake, this way you don't have an entire cake sitting on the cabinet after eating one peace.

  3. Tom, good to see you posting again! All I could think of as I looked at your photos was, "Hmmmm, those cuts could be used as hay." Maybe we don't need a sickle mower. Maybe we need a brush hog!

    1. Susan, Sandy and Leigh,
      Right after I posted the above, My computer bit the dust and It has taken me over two weeks to get it back up again. and it's still not right. I need a new one!
      I hope to be able to post again soon!
