I got most of the kitchen stuff unpacked and put away, swapped the kitchen lights for energy efficient LED bulbs, and cleaned out most of my dresser drawers so #3 could have them for what is now her dresser.
While doing bunny chores I came across a Prairie Skink. He (or she) froze in the walkway. I admired the little reptile for a couple minutes, took a photo, and then shooed the friendly insect eater off to the side so I wouldn't accidentally step on him. He's beneficial, he will help keep insect populations down in the bunny barn, and eats spiders too!
When I finally finished all of my chores, I put the corned beef into the crock pot and headed out with the metal detector again.
Another screwdriver, a couple nails, two railroad bolts, a four leaf clover, two pennies, a dime, a ketchup wrapper (seriously, it's metal), a bent pipe, some kind of oil container, part of a big spoon, the metal part of a lightbulb... Reminder friends! Sometimes treasure hunting can be hazardous! That light bulb had broken shards of glass all over in the dirt.
To y also stopped at the old house to pick up some of the plants. If he brings a few home every day we will soon have our garden moved! We now have peppers and tomatoes, squash, an eggplant, and chamomile on the homestead. Today's harvest included three red tomatoes (from the 100's tomato), and one purple tomato from the Indigo F1 tomato plant.
All is well tonight on the homestead. It was a busy but productive day. It's going to feel great going to bed after a long day of projects.
