Another busy one but no truck ran over me today! I cleaned out the leaves from the flower beds, cleaned out the strawberries (need to get more for some replanting), burnt leaves, spent time with Fran, and still had time to play with my electric chainsaw. We got a load of oak slabs from the sawmill and what we aren't using to build raised beds we are cutting up to use in our woodstove. William had bought me the chainsaw last month and I have used it a few times but today I sawed a lot with it. Its light weight and easy to use so decided that if I cut slabs that would be one less thing he would have to do. I started putting soil in the raised bed along the dog lot. That is going to take a lot of dirt! It has been a warm sunny day and tomorrow is suppose to be even warmer so guess where I will be... My swap partner got her package and I am so happy she liked everything. She and I think alike as she sent almost the same thing in her swap package. Thank you Ms. Robyn for getting this together... Now how about another vintage swap????????? Here are a few pictures but will take better ones when everything is blooming.

I must say...you are very inspiring...how on earth do you get so much stuff done???
I do good to clean up the kitchen and living room...do some laundry, and all that in between taking care of the almost-three-year-old and the almost-four-year-old. I must just be lazy. Sigh.
The Lord is convicting me of laziness big time.
Thanks for inspiring me to get off my rear and DO something! :)

It is so nice to see another gal use a chainsaw. My dh gets so nervous when I use one. But, I feel rather invinceable. He says I won't be such a super woman minus a leg or arm. No faith, I tell you, no faith. I will use one tomorrow to cut down the hedge in the pasture. Big thorns, not a lot of fun.

Dear Peggy,
I just don't think there is anything you can't accomplish. You are an inspiration.

You will probably laugh at this, but I didn't know some chainsaws were electric until I saw this photo in your blog. I haven't used our gasoline chainsaw since my husband died last summer because I can get the thing started. I've already switched to an electric lawn mower from gasoline for the same reason. Now I'm going to go investigate an electric chainsaw. Thanks for the idea!
