August 30th was the official possession date and John met the realtor in the morning to pick up keys for the house and quonset. After work, we took Sharlee to see the inside of the house. And yes, she fell in love with the little bedroom (one of the few finished rooms in the house) featuring a built-in dresser, tile counter and large mirror . . . just as John had thought she would! So there is no question about which bedroom will be hers.
Eliminating all those thistles took this whole weekend — cutting, hauling, and burning. One afternoon stretched to two days as every time I found another patch, I spotted more somewhere in the distance. Still — the job is done! Hurrah, hurrah!
In all, there were seven loads of thistles and many of the plants were tall enough to stretch the full width of the truck bed.
