Saturday Snapshot August 24, 2013 Felling Trees

I go to work and stay busy while my retired DH stays busy at home.
[Mmmm- I was so tired last night I forgot to publish this. Went to bed early before 10pm and feel better now.:-)]

I came home Wednesday to find this in the back yard: tree #1 down.
DH does things alone I wish he wouldn't.
He is still strong but work is harder and slower than when he was young.

Thursday he worked on the second tree-
Tree #2 lined up.

Tree #2 tied up/braced.

Tree #2 line tied to tractor.

Tree #2 down!

Some of the wood cut. 

Thanks to all who stop by and visit. Hopefully I will visit a little Saturday morning/evening.

A big Thank You to Alyce of At Home With Books who has hosted this meme for a number of years. She is taking a summer hiatus at her blog and the new host will be Melissa at West Metro Mommy. Thank you to Melissa for picking up the responsibility.

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky being hosted this summer by West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.


  1. Gosh - that must have been a surprise.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments. I don't know what's happening with some comments as it's not just yours that appear with 'funny' names!

  2. Your post is like a little movie. Glad everything went well with the trees. We have a dead tree that is actually on the church property next door. The church came last week and marked it with a big black X.

  3. Looks like it was a close call next to your pool fencing. Great photos!

  4. Very impressive. I guess you won't be short of wood for a while.

  5. Those are some tall trees! Great job getting them to land the right place!

  6. Felling trees is definitely a big job. I hate to see trees go, but sometimes they have to.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  7. Wow, that is a big job to take on alone!

  8. That must have been a tough job for him. This week I’ve shifted my Snapshot on to my other blog

  9. Wow! A brave man to take those trees down alone.... and so near the pool and deck and the shed! He HAS to know what he's doing, though! I'm impressed!

  10. That's quite ambitious to do a job that size alone... and brave too. I try to keep chain saws away from my husband!


Your comments are always appreciated!
