We've been cutting up the trees we've felled for firewood that needs to find a home. But several of the last trees we took down had such beautiful wood inside, my wonderful hubby is now rethinking how we cut up some of the rest of them. We may cut them into chunks that would make good boards for wood projects. I knew immediately, of course, that he's going to need a planer added to our tool collection. :)
We had another little sprinkle of rain last week and the rye grass we planted sure perked up. We only wish all the bare spots looked like this:
Saturday's work day was pretty tough. It was in the 80s again and the humidity felt about the same. I had to keep sitting down with ice packs because my face was beet red and I was getting overheated. I didn't feel bad, but we've learned that when I start looking like that, if I don't cool back down, I'll be sick the rest of the weekend.
Here's a picture of me with two our neighbor's horses.
Well, it's Thanksgiving week, and we have so much to be thankful for. It's been a really tough year for us, but we still have many, many blessings. Most of all, my wonderful hubby and I have each other, and crazy furry kids. And our worms. :) We positively love our little piece of Texas soil we've been able to purchase and look forward the the many lessons and rewards we will receive through it.
Until next time, wishing your and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving - please take the time to think of all the people and critters that make your lives rich and full...the rest of it is just stuff.
