New Toy

Yesterday I had posted that we had gone shopping in Wichita. My hubby bought me a new 'toy' while we were at Lowes. Something every girl should have, a chain saw...
Below is the tree before I got started on it yesterday.
The kids had gone to buy fireworks and I think I sawed on the tree for about and hour and a half. Below is what it looked like when the kids got back from their shopping trip.
There has been a lot of work going on in my yard all day and we'll be at it again tomorrow.
The new movie screen got put up, but it turns out that it's not as big as the one we did have. It will have to do for now. We all kicked back and was "The Spiderwick Chronicles" when it got dark.

Hi! Good to see that you survived the storm but I'm sorry to hear that you had to chop up that tree. Should make good firewood eventually. I bet your body is screaming now!

Take Care,

Anita - I didn't get it all done for the holiday either. I still have tree to clean up. If it hadn't rained all day yesterday
I'd have been out there working. I'll try to get back out there today.

Peter - Thanks! The only thing really 'screaming' are my legs where the Honey Locus trees have snagged them with thorns. I look like I've been in a fight with a wild cat. If I'd worn jeans I might not be so scratched up. : )
