Thankfully, I have a son who loves chainsaws, who has a friend who also loves chainsaws.
Ross had watched several videos on the way to cut a tree so that it goes the direction you want it to and doesn't land on anything you don't, such as your house. There were two trees. One went exactly the way he wanted it to go. The other went a little to the side. I was so proud of him. He's just so darned smart!
After they got the trees down, of course, we're left with these two big stumps. Ross thought that he could pull the stumps up with his truck. They hooked it up with a chain and he took off in that big ol' powerful diesel truck of his. That stump didn't move. Not an inch.
So we'll have to rent a stump grinder or a backhoe or some other equipment to get them out of the ground. And then after that, maybe, just maybe we'll have some nice, green grass where there's only been dirt.
We'll be able to have a fire in the fireplace every night for the next 20 winters.
Cam tilled up Jeff's garden. Gotta get that dirt ready for those yummy tomatoes. Even though it's still awhile away, it's time to start preparing. I can almost taste a tomato sandwich just thinking about them.
I'm making lasagna for Sunday Night Supper at our house tonight. I've been up to my eyeballs in lasagna since 2 o'clock this afternoon. It's completely homemade and it smells so good. I haven't had much to eat today, so I'm definitely going to treat myself. And I CAN'T wait!!!!
Till next time....
