We usually talk about what our plans are for the next day before we go to bed. I do best when I have a productive plan, even if it’s just one thing to get accomplished. Sometimes Roy is like that and then other times I have no clue that I’m going to wake up to the sound of his chain saw running and when I look out the window he is 20 feet up into an oak tree cutting off the bottom branches.
I only caught one photo of him cutting down all of the bottom branches on all of these oak trees. He doesn’t just cut them down, he cleans the area all up dragging the branches away.
The large pine tree in the front yard by the road had branches that drug along the roof of the UPS and Fed-Ex trucks so they had to park by the road. He didn’t want them to have to do that so he cut down lots of branches from that tree.
For the biggest branches he tied them up to our lawnmower and hauled them all the way to the back of our property where we are creating our picnic area. He can only go so far with the lawnmower so he had to drag the branches the rest of the way.
Here is the mound of pine branches I am working on right now. I’m removing all the pine needles to create pine straw mulch! Free! It may take days to finish this project but I’ve already made good progress!After Roy got all the big branches hauled off he picked up limbs, and everything left behind. This was his first use of his new lawnmower cart. He’s very happy to have this new tool to play with (oops I meant work with!)Since no cows were around for the photos above I wanted to share one that shows what we see out our front window! I love it!
I now have a new used phone which is actually a little nicer than my old one was. It’s really just in better condition since I’ve been known to drop and lose my phone in unsavory places and it had been through a lot before I cut it apart. 🙂 Roy did a lot to put the same things on the new phone as I had on the old phone. Each day now I’m finding something I don’t have on the new used phone and am working on getting it set up. I hope this is the only update ever on the phone massacre!
