Where I stayed
That lasted until lunch time and we returned to the house to eat on the deck. No discussions on politics this time, just about smoking, Wall-E, the cost of buying lunches, etc
I enjoyed the planting work today; it's a different feeling than doing just weeding or releasing. You're planting this living thing, treating it with care in order that it survives. You really got to appreciate how much work goes into planting these new trees and shrubs and you realize what a loss it is when they die because you put a lot of effort into planting them!
So yeah, I got to work with shovels and 'forks' and wheel barrows today, avoided electric fences, almost got trampled by a cow, and did a lot of planting! It was such a pleasant day though and the setting was great too with the mountains in the distance.
We left after 4 and arrived home pretty late at 5:15. Dinner wasn't ready until about 6:40 but one of the guys did a great job making chicken stuffed with feta and tomato sauce and wrapped in bacon, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, and broccoli...it was a feast! Later after dinner we watched Walk the Line and then I headed to bed! Off to the zoo again tomorrow - and hopefully we wont be working in the moat again!
