Thursday, May 4

The neighbour asked me today if he ever sleeps, and how in the world I live with him.....

to which my response was; "No.....and I HAVE NO IDEA!!!!!"

Garnet had the idea this morning to cut down a branch that was blocking the sun from where we are going to put the pool. After 2 outrageous quotes from the tree services he decided to do it himself. When I asked if it HAD to be done like RIGHT NOW.....he responded (and I quote) "If we are putting up the pool in the end of May that means I only have 27 days left."

Me; Blank Stare

Husband; "Well, it's true."

Me; "Yes, you are right honey, it is true.....27 days....wow! it should have been done yesterday."

Husband who does not have the word patience in his vocabulary whatsoever; "I'm going to rent a chainsaw."

He's at it again!!

Goodbye Branch, Hello Sun!

Big Helper

He was worried because the tree was 'bleeding'

The reason the Emergency Room in Sarnia is still in business....men and chainsaws.

The gloves were a good idea after a few slivers and a good chunk out of his hand

Dad chopped the tree RIGHT HERE!

Wow....I'm up high!

Garnet said he wanted it documented that I was wearing a skirt - raking like a real former farm girl ;) Posted by Picasa

obviously i didn't intend on wearing a skirt to do it -- but garnet needed my help as soon as i got home and wanted to drop the wood off at the compost site before they closed. i was only raking though -- the boys took care of the piling. and a no thank you on the wood stove...i like to press a buttona dn wow! instant heat!
