Tag Archives: Truck Loads

Wednesday

Hi everyone.  I’m sorry about no pictures lately but I have been having trouble with my computer.  Hopefully all is fixed now.  Saturday, Dave, Jess and kids came up for a visit.  Dave and Hubby went to Pastor Tom’s shoot.  They had a great time.  Then on Saturday afternoon, Chuck and his kids came over too.  I was one happy mawmaw.  All my grandbabies here at one time.  I hope this becomes a habit.  We all went to cut wood.  I so wish I had taken my camera.  It was so cute seeing them all carrying wood to load in the truck.  Everyone went.  We even had Katie and Sam in the stroller, which did not make Sam happy.  He kept saying, “I wanna help PawPaw too.”  We thought Sam might be a little too much “help.”

We had a great supper of pork, pintos, mashed potatoes, rolls, peaches and pears.  After cutting, loading and unloading two truck loads of wood, everyone was hungry.  As they were leaving, I gave them all an apple for the road.  Alexius was getting in the car and got her finger shut in the car door.  Chuck asked her how she managed to do that and she said, “I was trying to hold my apple and I wanted to give MawMaw another hug”.  I felt so sorry for her.

I have been helping Hubby all this week with a bathroom remodel.  We finished it today.  Tomorrow, he will start installing the cabinets at the old farmhouse he has been working on.  We plan on going with the Horn’s this Saturday to Grayson Highlands for their fall festival.  We are looking forward to it.  It sounds like lots of fun.  Well, I think that’s about all that is happening around here.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

 

Cutting Wood

Here are a few pictures of the wood pile we have been working on.   During the past winter, Marvin decided to have some logging done here on the farm.  They wanted to clear out a new pasture land.  After the logging crew was finished, they piled up all the unwanted wood.  The pile is smaller now than it was at first as several truck loads have already been removed.

This picture shows better how tall the pile is.

This is the pile of locust wood that has been moved to the side.  Billy is using this as fence posts for the new pasture land.

Hubby sharpening his chain saw.  This has to be done frequently.  I wanted to show you all the wood we have cut so far but I didn’t get the picture yesterday and it is raining here this morning.   I’ll save that for another post.  Last nights low was only in the lower 40’s so hopefully we are done with chilly nights.  I have several vegetable plants I want to put out in the garden.  I’ve just been waiting for the danger of frost to pass.  I’m not very good at remembering to cover them up at night so I usually just wait.  School today as usual.  We are getting close to being finished with language.  It is always exciting to finish a book.  I was hoping to do some laundry today, however if I do, I will have to dry them inside.  I might just wait until tomorrow, not sure yet.  The pile is pretty big today, it will be even bigger tomorrow.  I better get started on my day.  Take care and God bless.
