Well, not quite. Just tired, sore and out of steam.
We had a busy 3 day weekend here that started with the piano man taking Friday off to oversee the
lumber jacks tree cutters we hired to cut some trees in our yard.
Do you see my lovely view up there? We enjoyed a nice fruit smoothie on the back deck in the sunshine on Saturday noonish time. Normally we'd be looking at this...
a wall of trees.
The tree cutters (2 very nice, polite young men) came early Friday morning and cut down 10 trees. Please don't be angry with us.
The tree were too big for our small 2/3 of an acre lot in the country. They were shading the house and gardens, and if one or more ever blew over in a storm they would land on the house or garage. So we did a selective cutting and it was so worth it!
This is the side of our backyard next to our neighbours before we cut 6 trees here.
This is after...
That is the evening sun shining through. We haven't seen this for years and I love it!
We did a lot of tidying up and hubby helped the cutters all day in the sun and heat. I did some raking after they had finished.
I have some bad muscles in my shoulders lately and really can't do any yard work but I love it so much that I do some anyway. Then, I pay for it that night and for days later. :(
Saturday was our son's birthday. We took him and his girlfriend out for breakfast at a local truck stop restaurant. Good food!!
We took a break from our yard work on Saturday and enjoyed our view from the deck. I can't believe the light that comes into the house now even when the sun isn't on that side.
This is the kitchen after supper time (7:50) and the light is streaming in. When we first looked at this house (37 years ago) the kitchen had pine stained wood cabinets but the sun shining in was what made me love the house as there weren't any trees blocking the sun back then. Now I have a bright kitchen all day long!
We attended a fund raiser dinner on Saturday evening so I didn't have to prepare supper. The only thing I 'made' that day was the fruit smoothies. :)
Sunday we went to church in the morning and our son's girlfriend invited us and her parents for a birthday barbecue supper for Mark.
We had a wonderful time and some delicious food and cake.
He loves to fish and can't wait to get out on the water.
This is day 11 of sunshine and warm temperatures here in New Brunswick. Everything is growing and bursting into bloom.
I know many of you are suffering from rain, cold and even snow. That is usually our lot up here in the northeast. I'm sure it will change for you soon and that the much needed moisture you have gotten will help with the hot, dry summer to come.
Here is the same branch of the maple tree that I shared with you the other day with it's 'flowers' that have burst open from the buds.
Guess I'd better see what I can do outside this afternoon. Maybe I'll get out the spray paint cans and find something to paint or dig around in the shed. Lots to do this time of year!
Enjoy your day and have a great week.
