Here are the scary high tree monkeys:
Helllllooooo up there. And how is that rope supposed to help him?
Can you see him?
Oh, there he is after he cut the top half off of the tree.
When all was said and done they cut down 5 trees and cut them into 9 foot lengths so we can make 8 foot boards. Here are a couple of my inspiration photos from pinterest:
Nice, right? Probably going to add color....somewhere.....
My little husband the math teacher figured out how big our scallops for window trim needed to be with his tursty compass way faster than I could sketch and try and sketch and try. Handy being married to man who knows his way around a compass.
They will be painted white and built into a whole thing that is going to look sweet
and old, if I have planned it correctly!
Our good dog, Mercy, started yelping when she moved certain ways last week so we took her to the vet fearing a problem with her shoulder or hip (she's a 90 pound baby girl). Good news is that it is only arthritis (that's better than displasia, right?) and we are giving her some glucosimine. The bad news is that she isn't to be jumping, like off the bed or out of the jeep. So, the good news is that we had just gotten another super deal on an older Subaru (we are now a 2Baru family) so the jeep wasn't an issue. The bad news is that now our bed is on the floor and it's a long way up in the morning and I can't reach the light to turn it off and the bedside table is too tall....waa waa waa. It really isn't that big a deal and she hasn't yelped again so it is completely worth my inconvenience!
I know. We aren't wrapped right.
But we found each other to wrap up with.
Life is good.
