This Saturday morning, I mapped out my weekend. The first thing on my agenda (which I have already accomplished, was to set up the framework for a turkey blind. Behind Elaine's and my Botetourt County home, a path intersects with our seeded logging road - and that is where I positioned several evergreens this morning. Later, I will lay some other limbs and boughs there to finish the subterfuge.
After I finish writing this blog, I will plant 80 white onion sets in the garden. I plan on letting our chickens out in the garden, so that they can swarm off the earthworms that no doubt will be displaced. Interestingly, of our four hens, Ruby is the only one that is a fanatic worm eater. The other ladies will take a worm if they have the chance, but Ruby will specifically target worms as she is sifting through litter.
When the onions have been planted and Elaine's and my lunch of venison burgers has been consumed, I will work on some magazine assignments that I have, then watch some games in the NCAA tournament. But what I am really waiting for is the start of North Carolina's basketball game against Kansas on Sunday. As a Tarheel fan of now 46 years, I am fearful of the Jayhawks, but we will see how things develop.
Not an overly exciting weekend, but a nice one out in the country.
