Trees in the winter look so barren and really don't look
like they would get in the way of anything. Well let the
leaves come out. Yeesh! So off to home depot (being a new
homeowner you realize you don't have squat for tools) to get
a pruning saw. Shudder at the prices of the various tree
torture devices, see a bow saw for a decent price, sold!
Come back examine tree. Determine that the next lawn mower
chasing incident shall be unencumbered by the lower
branches, saw.. saw... saw.. ok We can walk under the tree
now without running into branchs. Look at the driveway, oh
dear, look at all the branches drooping down into the
driveway, saw... saw... saw.. Ok Now the tree looks a might
Now look at the mailbox, its all crooked and the post thingy
is falling apart, off to find a hammer and wack the thing
back together. Thats all done, clean up some more sticks
twigs and other assorted yard debris from the front lawn
(does it ever end?).
Next project will be replacing the pool liner when that
arrives. The current one has a hole that I can't find/fix so
I got sick of screwing with it and am just gonna replace it.
The yard recovery project is proceeding nicely, and I
discovered a nice place for a little picnic table and grill,
all shaded so it should be nice once I get that all cleaned
out and some grass grown in there.
