Unpleasant tasks!!!!

I’m in the process of getting my expenses re-entered into Quicken so I can get my taxes done.  What a boring, tedious task.  I try to commit myself to doing at least an hour of it every day, but it doesn’t always happen.  The computer guy was unable to retrieve the information off the hard drive of the water damaged lap top.  That means not only was all the financial data I had entered on that lap top destroyed, but tons of pictures as well.

Back-up your files!

In addition to the unpleasant task of entering expenses, I’m having to deal with this horn-dog of a black dog.  Rose (the livestock guard dog) is in heat and Gel is hell bent on getting to her.  I caught him trying to slither through the pipe gate this morning.  Given his size, that was not an easy feat.  Damn dog!  I have to head to Hickory Wednesday or Thursday and when I go, I will be stopping by the Humane Society and scheduling an appointment to get her spayed.  I had wanted to wait a bit longer on her, but I don’t want to risk her getting bred, either by him or a stray dog.  Given that it’s going to cool off for the rest of the week, it will be a fine time to get her done.

Got to go and milk and then load up the lawnmower, fill up the water barrel and head down back and mow the paths for the fence.  Those sheep are going through grass quicker than a wild fire.  It is supposed to rain for the next four or five days which is good because it will get the grass growing.

Until later …
