What did I do this weekend?

1) I did sleep late Saturday, but it required much in the way of burying my head underneath multiple layers of pillows. Why does my family begrudge me sleep on the one day I can sleep late?

2) Laundry. Reba's back is still hurting, so it was left up to me to take the clothes to the creek and beat them with rocks.

3) Chaperoned. #6 came over and spent the afternoon and early evening with us. He and Oldest stayed in the den and watched movies and made odd smacking sounds that I believe were not related to the eating of popcorn.

4) That's about it for Saturday. It lasted much too long.

5) Church. Had a lunch/meeting after worship that lasted too long.

6) Collapsed on the couch for one hour. Was repeatedly roused by various children and a spouse. Why does my family begrudge me Sunday afternoon's nap?

7) Church again.

8) Super Bowl. Saw the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.

Other stuff happened--Catherine went to a make-up birthday party, I went to the grocery store several times, there was vacuuming (including the kitchen table), the cat nearly tore my arm off--but for the most part these things were just part of a long smear of activities that ran from one thing to the next without a cease-fire, and so this morning I'd be happy simply to sit here and be a stalk of celery. (Admittedly, some celery has it better than others.)

Despite the bitter cold, hasn't been above 0f since Thursday, the fellows and I spent most of Saturday hunting coyotes. Did right well too, killed 22 on 5 farms. I think every one of the farmers whose land we hunted thanked us and said anytime. I got to try out the new .204 Ruger centerfire, sweet and as such things goes quiet too. I wore just foam plugs instead of my 'tronic muffs which just didn't fit under a Walls jumpsuit hood. The rifle was a CZ 550 American and a Burris 4x14 on top, just a nice setup doing 1/2 to 3/8ths MOA if I did my part.

I've heard lots of good things about the .204. Sounds like they were right. And I don't think you'll ever have to worry about breaking that CZ.
