What We’ve Been Up To

The temperatures here have been wonderful.  Upper 50’s for several days now.  We actually did not have a fire yesterday or today.  Amazing!  So what do we do when it’s this warm outside-cut wood, of course!  Here are a few pictures.

This tree had been dead for quite a while.  It was a pretty big tree.  I hope you can see it.  If you look at the right of the picture you can see where we cut it down.  Hubby was very glad for his new larger chain saw.  His old one would never have cut through it.

The wooded area where we were cutting opens up into a beautiful field.

We wheelbarrowed the wood to the truck.  This made it a little easier to load.  Hubby had to split most of the blocks just so we could lift them into the truck.  We worked on this tree for 2 days and still didn’t get it finished.  Hubby’s chain messed up on his saw so we had to quit until he gets it fixed.  We did school in the mornings and then after lunch we would go cut wood.  It was hard work getting the wood around the hill but we had a good time working together.  I told Hubby all this physical exercise was keeping us young (lol).

What is more fun than riding in the truck bed after a hard day of working.  God is good. We are getting ready to leave for Sunday night bible study.  We are studying in Exodus.  Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, potato chips and dip, cole slaw and dessert (unknown at this time).   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Butterfly

I took these pictures the other day when we were cutting wood.   This butterfly is especially for Jess.

This is the view from where we were cutting the wood.

A picture of a fire pink.  There were lots of these blooming in the wooded area.

There is a little trial you can walk that circles around.  This is the beginning of the wooded part of the trial.

About 1 second after I took this picture, a squirrel came running down this trial straight toward me.  I was not fast enough with the camera to get a picture.  I am experiencing technical difficulties with my computer.  My technical support team (Dave) says it is my hard drive.  For now, I am using Hubby’s computer.  For all the people whose blog I read and comment on,  there may be a season of silence.  I have them on my computer in my favorites list and I do not know how to transfer them.  Dave will fix all this in due time.  I hope to learn how to post pictures on this computer.  Pray for me as you all know I am not very technical.  This is my fourth attempt to post this.  The pictures were already loaded from my old computer yesterday before it said goodbye.  Well, enough of all that.  Tonight’s menu at church will be hot dogs with homemade chili, slaw, chips, salad and some kind of dessert (unknown as of yet).  Lunch today was beef roast in the crock pot, potatoes cooked in butter, home canned green beans, and watermelon for dessert.  I guess I better get started on my study for tonight.  Take care and God bless.
