A Small Case

I have had a small case of the Lazys for the past two days and I am hoping to break out of it real quick.

I took off work yesterday due to the oldest had her Rose Cutting. If you don't know what that is, it is a ceremony where they announce all the achievements and scholarships the seniors received. After that they have a slide show presentation with pictures of them growing up. Then the kids cut a ribbon signaling cutting the ties from school and starting life.
The girl spent more time going up to the stage receiving awards than she did sitting down. I do not know how I was able to produce something so smart.

Then the rain set in for the rest of the day but I did manage to run down to the old farm and cut up a pickup load of wood. Then I got lazy.
Today all I did was extend the smoke pipe five feet for the cold smoker so the smoke has a little longer to cool before it reaches the meat. Then I split and stacked the wood I cut yesterday. I also was able to hang some of those big lights I got a couple of weeks ago down in the big barn. Other than that I have not done much.
I did try to burn this morning but the wind was way to high and even though the ground is wet, I did not want to chance it.
I have not decided if tomorrow is going to be a lazy day yet or not. I am wanting to start digging for the fire pit but if it is as humid as it is today, then that might just have to wait.

Next Friday night is Graduation. I have heard there are bets among the family that I cry like a little girl.
Saturday night we are having a Graduation Party, Redneck style. I will give the menu later this week. As it is right now over 50 people will be here and some all the way from Tennessee. I was hoping for around 100.        


  1. LOL MDR, cry if you want to. I tried like mad not to when my first graduated high school and still shed a couple just last weekend when she graduated from jr college.

    LOL on the lazy, sometimes we just need it!

  2. Congrats on yours finishing college. I hope I will be able to say the same thing in 8 years. She is going for a Doctrine in Bio Medical Science or something like that.
    Thanks for the comment.

  3. That's not lazy. Lazy is sitting on your butt all day and blogging or reading. Maybe eating. Cutting wood and hanging lights is keeping up.

    I hope you do cry. Good for you.
