Yesterday was our 26th anniversary. You would think we would have done something romantic. Not us! Having the wood stove operational set us in a different direction.
The chain saw isn't big enough to cut through the trunk.
So he had to head further down to work on the limbs. Our back yard is really steep and we had to cut out a path just to get down to the tree and back up.
I was the carrier for msot of the wood. Walking up hill with the logs was grueling and tested my asthma so I developed a technique of tossing the logs up the hill.
We got 4 wheelbarrow loads up in a couple of hours and the cleared out some other trash trees around the yard. It doesn't look like a lot of wood but it's enough to get me through the cold next week.
After that we relaxed before we had grilled steaks and this chocolate pie. It's gluten free and vegan and has lots of calories. I only make it once a year but it's a nice treat.
Today it's raining so no wood cutting which is fine with me. I've been having some serious eczema issues this winter and now a patch of it on my legs is infected. I have antibiotics so I've decided that today I will laze around and watch some Olympic hockey. I'll get back to sewing this weekend.....and hauling wood. We have to do it before everything starts to grow. There's no getting through that jungle in the Spring and Summer.
