More progress on clearing up the trees! The maple grove behind our house has several rows of trees. I worked on only the two or three (depending on the area) southern ones. Here is the north side of the furthest row I worked on. This area starts to have a fair number of trees and … Continue reading Maple Grove Clearing – into the trees
In this photo from my last post, you can see part of the mess I also cleaned up today. That round thing of rotting wood is the top of a giant spool that was used for electrical cable. It was likely used as an outdoor table or something, at some point - that was a … Continue reading Maple Grove Clearing – a big, rotten mess!
Today would have been a perfect day to be mowing the lawn. If we had a working lawn mower. 😦 So, I started working on the maple grove, instead. And I am in heaven! I got SO much done, and it looks so much better! I took lots of pictures, though I didn't think to … Continue reading Maple Grove Clearing – the garden shed
I had an adorable surprise, while puttering around the kitchen, making supper. I had a furry audience! Trülbus was watching me. 😀 Then he and our mama cat started talking to each other through the window. Too funny! This evening, I got a phone call from my older brother and had a lovely long talk. … Continue reading Finding things out
I want to start by sharing some photos of the cats this morning. Because it's a great way to start the day! Like waking up to this... Actually, I woke up to see her sitting there, staring at me. 😀 The cats really appreciate the extra thickness of the window sill, thanks to the log … Continue reading Morning Cats, and shopping day
We had predictions for a series of thunderstorms throughout the day, starting at noon. It didn't quite work out that way. At least not in our area. The first rainfall (I won't even call it a thunderstorm, though there was some thunder) didn't start until late afternoon/early evening. Which worked out well for us, since … Continue reading So Green!
Since the ladder was out anyway, after my daughter caulked the screw holes from the previous satellite dishes on the side of the house, I decided to tackle one of the Chinese elms. There was a large branch overhanging the vehicle gate into the yard. With the power pole being replaced in a few weeks, … Continue reading More progress
This afternoon, while my daughters broke down the pile of branches I'd trimmed at the back of the house, I got the ladder out to caulk the holes in the wall left from the original internet satellite dishes. Hearing the noise, my younger daughter came around to help. Sweetheart that she is, she braved the … Continue reading Another Mystery
With predictions for rain tomorrow and storms the day after, I decided that this was my day to try and mow the lawn. Of course, nothing is quite that simple around here. When I got outside, I was greeted by... ... a reminder of one of the reasons I stopped liking Chinese elm. There are … Continue reading Trimming, clean up and… NOT mowing the lawn?
Today, all four of us made it into the city for a family get together. It made for a very long and painful day for my husband, but he hasn't seen his sister in 4 years. She flies home soon, so he wasn't about to miss this chance. It was so great to see everyone … Continue reading An Awesome Day, and growth explosion
