I deluded myself into thinking I could break down all the downed trees in my backyard over my mini vacation, but it was not to be. It was a much tougher job than I’d thought! Still, I managed to clear out the central mess and started on the pile that was once the cherry tree. The remaining piles are somewhat organized, and I can see the back of my yard again, so I can’t help but be pleased with my progress.
I am still so tired that it took me a half-hour to type the preceding paragraph. I’ll sign off now with a before and after and call it a night.
