I WRECKED MY TRUCK

I WRECKED MY TRUCK

I WRECKED MY TRUCK Last  ,  Thursday a bit before noon.  This happened all because of my  SNEEZING    10 times in a row.  Talk about some SIDEWAYS SHIT.    Well It could of been a lot worse, so I’m thankful that it wasn’t.

So now that  I WRECKED MY TRUCK, I get to FIX IT.   This is not an easy job.  There is a good bit of BODY WORK, that needs to be done. The last Time that I did any body work I was still in my TEENS, a good 35 years ago.  Well right now I’m just concerned with getting it back on the ROAD.    So  I  had the front end Pulled out about 8 to 10 inches , by a friend that does body work for a living.    This  cost me $400 to get done.  Then there was the Radiator , fan , and the fan clutch .  There is also the light fixtures as well .  There was also getting it TOWED to and from the shop as well.

Well I WRECKED MY TRUCK,  and it has cost me $650 already.      I still need to get a few parts  and the light fixtures . I’m thinking it will cost about $200 to $400 to get it finished to a good drivable state. I’m hoping to find some cheep parts at the salvage yard.  I need to find a pair of turn signal   light fixtures , the pair of bumper lights , a mounting assembly  for the head lights and a bracket that holds the front bumper on to the frame.    There are a few other things that I will get later but for now these will do .  Later I will want to get a bumper , A grill , the shroud ,and skirting under the bumper , there might be a  front passenger side fender too.  We shall SEE how this works out , later , on down the road.

AS for now , I WRECKED MY TRUCK , and need to fix it as fast as I  can, so I can get to work and keep things going around here.  Well This weekend has been a lot of work , to say the least .   Well it is time to get after it .

MY WEEKEND WORK AND WAITING

MY WEEKEND WORK AND WAITING

Well now as to  MY WEEKEND WORK AND WAITING . I have a few things to get done , that have needed to get done for a while.  With everything that has been going on the last few months , a few things got pushed aside.   Well today I’m going to try to fix some of this.

The WAITING part of this MY WEEKEND WORK AND WAITING , has to do with my HAM LICENSES not getting here as fast as I want it to get here. I want my CALL SIGN  and I want it NOW.   OH the night mare of having to WAIT for it to get posted.      GOV. is just too slow.  Well at least the mail is. SO I have to wait for it to get prosed through the SYSTEMwell I should have it by next Friday.    I can’t talk on my Radio till I get my Call Sign.       SO  I WAIT for it to get here.

Noe as to the Work part of MY WEEKEND WORK AND WAITING. Well I’m not sure what all will get done but today is the day to get it done for sure.  I think that I’m going to start with the Rack for the QUAIL Cages and the Stand for the Grow Bed on the AQUA-PHONICS system.  I think these are the two BIGGEST things I need to get too out there.   Well them and the Door for the Quail Shed and a Paint Job on it.  So I have a good bit of things that need to get done now.  So I’ll be getting to them after I get back from a run to the Farmers Market  to sell  or TRADE  some EGGS. I like trading them more.    By the time I get back It will be light enough to work and warm enough too.

I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST

I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST

There are so many things that I want to Build that I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST. I mean  I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST for every thing I’m going to build here at The BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT.  I can think of a lot of things that I need to build around here, having to do with so many different things. Things that need their own list.

I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST for just things that have to do with the QUAIL SHED.  This would be the new cages and rack, a loft over head in part of it,  a few work benches , some shelves ,  Wire it up for lights, a watering system for the Quail, a Rain Catchment and storage system, AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT else that might come to mind.

Then I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST that has to do with the GREENHOUSE .  Well I need to build the greenhouse first but then it will need shelves , benches, watering system, trellises , a potting table.  There will be an Aqua-Phonics system in there too.  There will be a BREEZEWAY that goes between the Greenhouse and the Quail Shed.

I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST for the GARDEN and YARD.   There are a lot of raised beds that I want to add and a few that need to be repaired.   Then there is the Pallet PLANTERS that I want to make as part of my front yard fence . Oh there is so much to plant, and they all need some thing for them to go into, like a raised bed built with my bricks. I need to tear up the old walkway paver’s and redo the walkways to the shed and greenhouse as well as to the gate.   Then there is the FENCE that needs fixing or rebuilding.

Then  I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST For the  WATER  SYSTEMS.  Now there are a lot of parts to this. There is the Rain Gutters that need to be finished and get them flowing to the IBC totes to store the water. Then there is the  water from my water filter that I want to store for use to cleaning water at a  cleaning station that has the waste water go to the garden beds.  This will have water go to the  Chicken coop and Quail shed too. So there will be a lot of plumbing to do.

I’M THINKING OF A BUILD LIST for a better way of life here at the BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT.   Right now most of these things are on the list for this year and next .   I Want to get these done so that they can help make my life better and easier too.I,m hopping to get moat of these things done in the next year , but there are some that will be a bit longer. thing is I want to get them all done in the next 5 years so I can have it easy when I get to my Ripe old years. I’ll still have a lot of work to do, but it will not be the heavy stuff that I’m getting done now.   Well I need to get to work now .

WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND

WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND

The Question for today is   WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND ?   There are so many things that need doing around here. Well I know that I’, going to work on the Shed , it needs a door and roof and a floor.   Some of  the other things on the list for this     WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND are to get some gardening done ,  I need to get a major cleaning  and move on my AQUA-PHONICS system done. I need to get some fencing around the garden beds to keep out the chickens, and puppies too. There is also the dust bath box for the chickens.  I’m going to be picking up two RIR rooster chicks this weekend too, so I need to get a spot for them set up.   Then there is still some bottling that needs to get done sometime soon,for the MEAD and Hard CIDER, this will be fun.     Then there are the Bee’s  to tend to also.

Well there is all that  for this   WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND list and then there is the normal stuff like dished, laundry,  vacuuming the floors, watering the plants, Then moving the plants outside.  There is a lot that needs to be done and just so much of me  and time to do  it all in.   Well at least I have a home to do all of these things with and around.

So  WHAT TO DO WITH THE WEEKEND, well that would be to get BUSY with doing it and DO IT , well as much as i can get to ,at least.  The thing is with this list is it is like the Grass , it keeps growing and needs mowed down as often as you can get to it .   Oh and I need to get  the lawn MOWED  too.   Well i need to go and  do something now.
