Lots of photos!

Here are a couple of photos of some of our property where we have been cutting timber! Right now Richard is cutting and hauling them out to the sawmill to cut up for Railroad ties! We will work on cutting up the tree tops later. I have my own chainsaw so I will cut up alot of them for firewood. We use the firewood through the Winter in the fireplace and try not to use the furnace so much.


This is a photo of Hunter and Donkey on the couch last night! I was trying to get a photo of Hunter sleeping, he sleeps with his eyes half open! But it didn't really show up very well in the photo.


This evening was Hunter's fishing day with his Cub Scout group. We all met at the lake for the boys to fish. Good thing we only live less than 5 minutes from the lake. We had a great time, I only wish that Andrew had been with us. Andrew went to his dad's for the weekend. :( Hunter had a wonderful time, I took lots of photos of him and Richard and some of the lake.







And finally last night, I got a chance to sew another block for my Love Letter quilt. This now makes me 91 blocks, I just didn't have the energy to do anymore. I hope to get back to work on it tonight.


So now, I'm off to fix a later supper and maybe do a little bit of sewing!

The lake looks great. Did they catch anything??
When we had a fireplace, we did the same thing! I actually liked it better. We don't have a fireplace now, and I sure miss it.
Another block -- YEAH!!!

Beautiful pictures of Hunter, Richard and the lake. Yesterday was perfect weather for it. That will be good four wheeling trails you all are making with logging. You did good to have energy to do a block afterwards.

Looks like you have a lot of work cut out for you with those trees and the clearing. We have NO trees, which I would love to have some! The pictures of Hunter and Richard at the lake are beautiful, J also sleeps with his eyes partly open. It freaks everyone else out!

What a pretty lake - and how great to have it so close to you! You have a lot of work ahead of you - but won't it be nice not paying for heat for your house this winter????
