It has been an incredibly long, fun, heart wrenching, sunny, hilarious, delicious, stormy weekend complete with made-from-scratch pizza and sisters learning to navigate elation and disappointment. But it's hard to take a picture of those things (and also I am exhausted), so instead, we'll talk about the quite enormous 93 year old tree that Tommy felled all by himself because it was dead and he was ( it turns out unnecessarily) afraid it would topple in a bad summer storm.
It was super impressive and more than a little scary when it crashed to the ground. I'm happy to report that my husband was not crushed even a little by this gigantic trunk.
He also installed the first two corner posts of our soon-to-be-second-fence-for-goats! Yes, that's the technical term.
He claims that by the end of this week not only will the actual fence be completed, he will also have begun to build his very own, personal, custom, lovable, amazing, perfect, awesome, to-die-for outdoor wood-fired pizza oven. And yes, that's also the technical term. And no, I don't think it's gonna happen. But don't tell him that, or you're gonna have to hear all about it. Again. (p.s. But I still love you, honey!)
And look at this gorgeous sunny day, with our beautifully behaved dogs, sitting so nicely whilst I photograph them! Send applications for Dwija's Doggy Obedience school to: P.O. Box......
Oh, and check this out: growing stuff. Stuff! That's growing!
Which brings me to our next project: the clearing of the space that will soon be our 10'x10' vegetable garden.
Hopefully I will soon be telling you all about how the fence is complete and our new animals have been brought home and mulch and compost have been tilled into the already-fertile soil and when I say those things you can imagine me making this face:
Happy spring everyone!
