Happy Earth Day!! I actually was outside today, after attending Camp NaNoWriMo, of course, where my word count is now 60,792 words! I had another dead tree to dig out and this time I even did it right and got it all. Thank heavens that is the end of the winter damage. Then I hauled it down the bank and tossed it over my four foot fence into my wild area. After Student Link, I did the same with the three trees I’d pulled over the weekend as I missed my lawn guys and they didn’t know I’d wanted the trees removed. It was a lot of work and I’m sure it didn’t do my back or my hip any good, but it was very satisfying emotionally, and that’s got to count for something. I was busy at Student Link and it was good to see the students. We all seem much refreshed by our break. My garage door has come “undone” again, so I called the young man who fixed it before and he is going to call the manufacturer as this is a relatively new door. Meanwhile, I was able to shift enough stuff on the other side of the garage so that I could get Eglantine in there. Trevor may not be able to get to me for a day or two, so I thought it would be prudent to use the other side. I just had one afternoon student today as my other student isn’t back from the school’s trip to Japan. My student and I started Ovid’s story of King Theseus, and next time we will move on to the Trojan War.

  1. Ugh on the winter damage. We finally after about a year got the tree out of the creek. Someone said it was swamp maple so we will be able to use it for our fire place. But we don’t really have a wild area, though we have created several dump piles. There is only so much place to put thousands of pounds of tree debris. Some of the smaller pieces the guys estimated weighed in at 400 pounds alone. And that isn’t including the small stuff. Just be careful!!!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of winter damage! And I agree with the Ugh! I just found another small tree that needs to come out, but I’m trying to resist doing it myself. Thanks, Jules, as always, for stopping by.
