More Firewood Tomorrow

This is our next door neighbor and he says this tree comes down tomorrow, first thing!

Man Toys

Watching Tree Removal

Two young ones, ages 7 and 9, had front row seats from their driveway across from the tree removal. I joined them with my camera!

I took these pics from the window upstairs; you can see the screen.
Jeff asked for some wood and the men were so kind to cut it into smaller sizes. We'll have lots of firewood by fall.

It was so heavy that the owner of the house went out to help pull down the trunk.
Going down.......................
There was a very loud sound when the trunk hit the ground.

Working While On Skype

Much of this cardigan was knit this morning while we skyped. It's fun to see the grandbabies in action! It's fun to see my "baby" looking so great too.

More Work on Brooklyn's Quilt

I cross stitched a bit more last night and then today had to put it away and work on doll clothes.

Garden Plot

Yesterday he cultivated an area for our veggies and herbs.
He was tired, and had some aching muscles. Gee, I wonder why!!!

Thank you, Dennis, for the gift! Thank you, Jeff, for cutting it into reasonable sizes!

Jeff is sawing under our crab apple tree.

After Long Hiatus

I resumed working on this project on Friday; it would go faster if I consistently stitched this quilt, alone, and not including it in a list of knitting, sewing, smocking, other quilt projects.

Looking Great

Some area is waiting to be tilled and prepared for the veggie garden.

Northern Catalpa

Oh yes, now I know why it looks familiar. Thanks for the help, Jen. There's a huge tree on Franklin Street and we saw the beans hanging. That season was long gone by the time we arrived at The Barn late March. Bob says the number of beans forming acts like a prediction for the severity of winter.
Our tree is very small, rather young, and beautiful.
