Update on Tumbleweeds, Me, and My Hubby



The tumbleweeds were much worse this morning, all the way to the top of the gate and blowing over it. I'm very fed up with the winds.


As far as fire hazard goes, I am glad the weeds are finally blowing off the field you see in the background. The field  goes all the way to the main road through the canyon. I was really worried about the fire hazard last summer with all those dry weeds in such a large field, so close to home.


So I'm glad they're on their way out of there, but now what do I do? I did nothing this morning as I was determined that Samson and I had to walk for one hour. He is on a serious diet now, but I know that the main problem is not enough exercise, so we are working on both. And I get some huge benefits from it too.


This is how it looked coming back. It's still there, I guess I will fix it later. 

I just had to post something to thank you for you comments and your good wishes for my husband's hands. That's so nice of you. They are much better, but there's one thing about my hubby, he works best when its sunny and hot, being from the South. Since it is so cold and dark, I suspect his hands will be resting today as well. I will let him know about your good wishes for him though. I know he doesn't really get this blogging thing, but he's good about it. 

I, on the other hand, love this weather, so I'm off to polish my bookcases and other furniture. Everything gets so dry in this climate, so my wood needs some Old English Polish. Have a great day, and thank you so much again.

  2. I'd write 'an ode to a tumbleweed'.

    Samson seems indignant that his fun should be controlled by a tumbleweed. Bad tumbleweed. I agree, it would bug me too.

    Take your time putting your house back together, Inger. Stand back and reassess the room every few hours. It helps keep the job in perspective.

  5. I had no idea you had so many tumbleweeds. I heard there's a lady in Kansas that sells them online...

  9. I remember the first time I saw tumbleweeds in Texas. I was like, WOW! They were everywhere. When I saw the news and the video of another fire, I immediately thought of you. Stay safe, Inger!

  12. Inger, I find this so interesting about the tumbleweeds--Would you believe that I've never seen one?

    I read your previous post about your husband, I hope by now the swelling has lessened, and he's feeling better!

  14. I do hope your hubby's hands come along well, despite the cold.

    And I think the tumbleweeds will sort themselves out, as long as some fool doesn't come along and toss a cigarette into the pile.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  15. I didn't know you had tumbleweeds like that. I thought Texas was the only state where cars got completely covered with tumbleweeds.

    No wonder you were worried about fires.

  17. i am wondering just how you will get rid of all those tumbleweeds... that is a lot of weeds floating around and piling up. love the peek at Samson.. hope the hands are better today and my hubby works best in heat and loves heat and i love cool. he also does not get blogging at all. i talk about people like they are friends i know and he doesnt get it. he will say who is that when i tell him something, i say things like you know the blogger who lives in the canyon...

  19. I'm jealous of all the beauty around you. It may be tumbling weeds, but it's gorgeous. I love my dogs too, and I hope your husbands hands heal soon.

  20. that's a lot of tumbleweeds ... guess you could spray paint some white and make snowmen out of them, they won't melt.

  21. I thought tumbleweed had been invested by cowboy film producers! Sorry to hear your husband's not been well.
