Lumberjack




Mark cut down a tree today that was near where our new fence is going. Alice wanted it down, she mentioned it to Mark this morning and he went out and cut it down!! He did a great job, it was scary. He put a rope on it and pulled it down after he had cut it almost down. He put it right between trees and the house. It was about 25' high. I was washing windows today...Pottery Barn didn't need me....It was a beautiful day. I got almost all of the outside ones done, I forgot about the high ones in the back...Oh well, the trees cover them! I can't believe how I enjoy clean windows! I used to be too busy to even realize how beautiful they are when they are clean. I also made a coffee cake, and an apple pie. Mom has been tutoring me on pie crust! (no Pillsbury crust this time!) Company coming tomorrow: Tim and Nancy (Mark's brother and sister in law from Alaska, and Dad Rupp....

All Uncle Mark needs is Babe the Blue Ox. Your Mister is quite a guy! Love you all.

Oh you shall have such a great time! Tell Tim and Nancy "hi" from me.

Time for clean windows for me, also with company coming this week. I love clean windows, too--but will only get to the kitchen, family room and living room. Sadly, the rest will probably wait until spring.

Wow, Mark. That is impressive!

That's funny..I'm going to clean windows today!! For joy! :-)

It always frightens me when Dick gets the chain saw out! Might just be the look he gets in his eye!

Enjoy your company!

Blessings!!
