The days slip by so fast, between housework ( minimum hours and wage), shopping ( necessary food, petrol, and library books), cooking meals (totally necessary with high carbs for working man and woman), and the firewood that goes on and on.
A few snippets from our place.
Daffodils from along the fence line.
Tree #1 waiting for the chop.
Oops, this wasn’t the plan, tree #1 fell slightly to the left, maybe 2 inches., but enough to knock this one right out of the ground and down into the stream, over the steep bank. And over the chain-saw sounds, I thought I heard some words that will not be repeated here!!! This photo was taken after the trunk was sawed off from the huge root system that pulled right out of the ground.
Here it is after being cut into smaller lengths,but one huge log is still there, right along the bank edge.
This log against the bank is the one Mike hauled up with the huge machine. Have the expert do what looks impossible, and all is well right here at our place.
Mike arrived early yesterday, and this huge machine did the work so easily, thanks Mike, a man who knows how to lift those logs up and out of the stream below.
The first log was taken with video, that will be here another day. Lots of turning, getting in just the right place, and soon the excitement was all over for one day.
And now it is Thursday, life is good, days are warm, frosts are few, and sunshine arrives so much earlier.My video skills have really been put to the test, as I took a lot in portrait view, and those dreaded black bars are at the sides. I’ve tried so many ways to edit them out, so any help, suggestions, or editing skills you can suggest will be so happily appreciated.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
