Paying bills & having fun too?

Today is bill paying day. It wasn’t always this way but, bill paying day is a good day. These days we actually have a little bit of extra money to work with and that makes it a little bit fun. We still have $16,522.81 to pay on our credit card but are really making some headway with paying that down. We are still on track to knock that out this year!!
 
We did something a little bit crazy today: We bought the fencing and designed the layout for our orchard. We plan to have 20-24 trees in all. I am most excited about the almond tree. I’m kind of a nut so it stands to reason, lol. :P

My almond tree. It even has a flower already. Exciting huh?

Anyways, this weekend is going to be full of extremely hard work. We have 7 trees to plant (pomegranate, almond, apple – grafted 5 in 1, nectarine – 2 different kinds, cherry – grafted 3 in 1 and bing) plus some raspberries and blueberries.  Hopefully the kids cooperate and Greg and I can get a lot done. Wish us luck!

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther
