I hope everyone who was celebrating Memorial Day had a good holiday. As usual, I worked and was rather busy in the morning. Business died out terribly in the afternoon because the weather was beautiful, temps in the mid 80s (F), full sun, so most customers went elsewhere to spend the day.
Today starts my stint of 4 days off. This schedule, working the weekend with the week off seems to be hanging around a lot longer than I had expected. The only downside is that when I do work, if business is slow, I find myself getting bored very fast.
They did set up a rather nice buffet for us yesterday, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken, though because we were busy in the morning I didn't get to graze as much as normal. When I stepped on the scale this morning I'd actually lost .7 pounds since yesterday's weigh-in. Of course, with all the grazing I'd done on Saturday and Sunday, that .7 pounds barely put a dent in pounds all those extra calories had built.
Even though I cut the Hell out of my peach tree, I'm pleased to say that I still have peaches this year, not the bushels I had over the last few years, but enough to prove that the tree might be better off after the hacking I did to it. I wonder if the same thing will happen to my nectarine tree.
