A Wood Cutting Day


Saturday, before Grace’s party, we went up on the hill to cut wood.  Grace decided (just for fun) she wanted to chop this log with the ax.  She chopped for a pretty long time.  This is how much she chopped.


Pretty good, considering it was splitting maul and not an ax.  Then Hubby had difficulties with his chain saw and we had to load up and come back home for him to work on it.


Now you can’t see him but in the left corner at the tail gate is Shadow.  This is what he is waiting on.


He is too old and too heavy to jump up into the truck bed.  Hubby has to lift him up now but we would never dream of leaving him behind.  If the girls are riding in the truck bed, he thinks he has to be there too.   He checks out the area where we are cutting and then comes back and stays where we are.  If the girls go for a walk, he goes with them.  He has always taken his job very seriously.


Everyone loaded and ready to go.  Hubby did get his chain saw working again.  He went back up and finished getting the load of wood while the girls and I stayed down and got everything ready for the party.  It was a really fun day. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

A Ride Around the Farm


Yesterday evening the girls convinced me we needed to take a ride around the farm.  Grace took pictures for me.  Thank you, Grace.  First we start up the hill.


I almost forgot, first we must get Shadow in the truck bed with the girls.  When he was a young pup, he would run beside the truck.  Now he rides in the truck bed.  He’s too old and too heavy to jump in the truck bed so we back up to this little incline, let the tail gate down and then he can jump in.  He loves it.  As soon as the girls climb in the back of the truck, he starts getting excited. 


See how the fields are starting to get green!

A view from the top of the hill.  These are just a few pictures Grace took.  I will show more later.  We have sunshine today.  We did get some rain last night but I think it has already passed us by.  We plan on getting some more outside work done today.   Maybe even working some more on our surprise.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
