To our delight, we got our power back on Saturday night. Which left the rest of our long weekend to clean up the yard and take a much needed trip to the grocery store. Howard spent the whole weekend working on the tree. I was busy trimming hedges and picking up sticks and leaves.
And let me introduce to our newest wood pile.
This pile is brand new and is in addition to the three other piles we have in the yard.
And if that doesn’t seem like enough, there is still more wood in front of the house !
While I was taking photos of the wood piles, Mishu sensed her moment and joined in (as usual) begging for her time in the spotlight.
I suspect she realized that her fur did not contrast well with the wood pile because she had me follow her around for a few more shots.
This one is my favorite because it’s her fake hunting face. Really she is just taking interest in some leaves blowing in the wind.
Anyways, back to the house… we are almost back to normal again. The cable lines are still on the ground but we have service. The fallen tree just stretched them so we were lucky to have our phone and cable service when the power went back on. Blogging would have been impossible without the internet.
Our stone wall needs some repair because it was severely damaged when the tree fell.
After a long day in the yard I’m not too motivated to start that project anytime soon. I’m actually looking forward to a few days in the office to recover a bit. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
