These are the backyard before & after (B&A) shots from today's foray into the jungle. As I cut the last piece of bamboo, sunlight flooded into the yard. If I hadn't been completely exhausted I'm sure I would have attributed some significance to the moment. Now, after two glasses of wine, I started calling tool and equipment rental companies for bush chippers. A great big shot-out to Gus who suggested calling the tree service sooner rather than later. Tellone's Tree Removal is scheduled for first thing tomorrow morning to trim the live oaks, remove Spanish moss, and take away the (now four large) piles that were cut by hand.
In case you're wondering why I'm spending so much time in the yard when there is so much to be done indoors and only 3 (gasp) weeks before moving day, it's because the house is being tented for termites this weekend and Casey is waiting on permit approval. The guys were happy for a weekend off and I was just happy for a 3-day weekend.
|After - the pile of brush in front of the coop is Pile #4|
Critter tally for the day: 1 snakeskin and 1 mouse
