Dwight said, "Hey, this is a win-win! They get firewood, and you get your trees chopped down!" --to which I replied: "Yeah, and you're the only one NOT winning, Dwight! All I can offer for payment is sexual favors!" Hee! Poor Dwight...he's known me for years...he can handle it. I'm so bad. I did tell him I could think of worse ways to spend a Sunday morning than watching a handsome stud chop down my trees with a chainsaw. Hellloooo!
Naked house. *sigh* It looks weird now! I can see some serious gardening in my future now, though, since there aren't any trees filling things in out front. Oh, and the garage will DEFINITELY need to be painted in the spring now. Without the trees hiding it, it's U.G.L.Y.
So when we went to Pat's, we had to check out her neighboring cows and llamas...
...and of course Kathleen had to talk to Gus and the donkeys. Those donkeys are SO sociable!
So since last I wrote, I read "The Amateur Marriage" by Ann Tyler (I LOVE her writing), I saw my niece Madeline in her Princess and the Pea school play, which was really quite delightful, I turned down a job for a guy who wanted to pay me $1500 less than what I had estimated the job to cost (helloo...I don't work for free), welcomed BF home after a week in Tennessee, visited my best friend's mother in the hospital, where she has just been weaned from a ventilator after almost three weeks post-op (scary), and was relieved at the news that my father came through HIS carotid artery surgery with flying colors. It's been a stressful couple of weeks, and today I top it off with what would have been my mother's 69th birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom, wherever you may be!
