At last having a life...

 I was surprised with a lay off after nearly 8 months. I am starting to relax and start working on projects I haven't had time or energy for. It has been a real winter so far lots of ice and snow My neighbor wanted to knock down some big leaf maples I got all the firewood and had some fun. We had a big snowfall which knocked down a choke cherry and broke a branch off a maple onto the house. I had a tree company take the two problem maples down. I am happy and when I build an addition there are no more trees to worry about.  

The snow took it's toll

The problem maples are no more

This came up and I sure miss dad.
                                I find winter purifying a time to take stock
                                   and do what there never seems time the
                                   rest of the year. Be happy and follow your dreams!

Sunday works for me...

For the last few weeks I have been back at work. It has been a challenge getting with the program after so much time off. The heat has been an issue, keeping hydrated and keeping enough cool down brakes is important. The flowers, Rhodo's and shrubs are early this year and it looks to be a long dry summer.  

Just dropping by to say Hi, I'm still around and work is 12 hour shifts.

A very wet day...

On a very wet and cool day I like to have a fire, do some reading, hang with the pets and my better half...


There is nothing like a photo album


Yes let the sunshine.
Yes the rain will soon pass.
I hope these photos will brighten your day!

Ducks in a Row...

It feels like Spring will soon arrive in these parts. Working around the yard pruning and general clean up is in full swing. The beds in the garden have seaweed on them, the Blueberries have had coffee grounds, Fir needles, worm castings and seaweed to top them off they will be very happy this year. 


Working on the upper Garden. The beds with leaves are planted with Garlic last fall and my favorite spot for seaweed.


Ducks in a row, books keeping me company, snow drops and  crocus are the first to show


Encrusted stump, fresh clean seaweed and the view looking East


Cedar kindling from beach log drying a little in my man cave, making and repairing cat scratch posts. The one on the right is a big hit with the kids!

Here is wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day!
