We’ve had a wonderful day here and it looks as if it will continue like that until the night comes. Warm air, sunshine with just a few clouds and a nice warm breeze. It wasn’t that wonderfully warm this morning though, only 3C (37,4F). But it was enough to wear a fleece sweater, the sun did its job rather well. Besides a few birds singing and a few cranes shouting (I really don’t know what to call their sound🙂 ) not a sound could be heard.
We walked down to the creek and the water level is very high there and that’s a bit odd since it’s desert dry everywhere else in this area. I’m pretty sure its beavers that has built a wall somewhere downstream from where I can walk. I got even more sure when something made a big splash in the water when we passed an opening between the trees. There’s so much vegetation along the creek out by the fields now that it’s impossible to see the creek now so I guess it got just as surprised as we did🙂
I didn’t mow the lawn today like I always do, instead I started to make wood chips from all the branches that been drying since I cut down my plum tree and half the apple tree. I wouldn’t have cut them down if it wasn’t for the fact that the plum tree was dying and half the apple tree fell down on the ground. Both my neighbor and I miss the plum tree, he could take as many plums as he wished since I really can’t eat that many myself🙂 We have now decided we both will buy plum trees this autumn🙂 I’m not sure what kind I’ll get this time though.
Anyway, I started chipping wood chips and this time it was so much that the wood chipper was over heated🙂 I had to stop several times to let it cool down otherwise it just stopped and then it took even longer to finish the job. It turns out I was out for five hours🙂 I also gave myself a few scratches and some bleeding wonds while working out there and it does hurt, especially when I wash my hands🙂 So now it’s time to make my dogs their food and a pot of tea for me. I might make an apple pie for later, I don’t think I’ve ever had this many apples and then I only have half the apple tree left🙂
