We started the day with some breakfast burritos from a place here in town that makes the most delicious breakfast burritos EVER!!!
After a lunch break, Gennifer took the girls home (kicking and screaming) and Jake and Greg and I continued working outside. All. Day!!!! Jake left after the tree was down, all except for the stump, which our saw couldn't quite handle, and Greg and I stayed out there til dusk. I realized at about 8:00 p.m. that I hadn't eaten since my breakfast burrito which had kept me full enough to skip lunch.
Here is the space we cleared. Doesn't look like much, but believe me, it was a big job!!
The smaller pieces will be cut to use for the chimneya. The huge pieces from the big pine we had to have removed last year will be split and stacked for firewood. Those were a bear to move for the guys and I forgot to get a picture of where they were moved to, but you can see them being moved in earlier shots.
They were going to put the motor home back last night, but we decided to wait til tonight because today we are having this big beautiful bouganvillia you see on the left of the gate, removed to create more space and possible parking for the boat.
I hate to see that beautiful plant go, but I will not miss the mess!! It blows those papery flowers into my garage and all around the driveway and I hate it. I bet our neighbors won't miss it blowing into their pool either!! We are also relocating the trash bins, and next summer, I plan to take over that space for my garden too. It will more than double my existing space, and I have big plans for what all I will plant next spring!!! While raking out those soft tissue papery leaves from that corner of the yard, I found that "somebody" has been laying their eggs out there!! From now on, nobody gets to leave the coops for free ranging until eggs have been laid and collected!!!
Until next time (which might be tonight to show you what I have been making) that's it from the farm.
