This afternoon Brian called and asked if we'd care to come by and help him with a little firewood...he doesn't have a truck anymore and we were just being couch & mouse potatoes anyway, so off we went to pick him up. We headed on over to Peanut's house, that's Jimmy's daughter and my step-daughter. She had a large oak tree that had fallen over and had told Brian that he could have it. So off we went.
We parked in Peanut's driveway...she lives about a quarter mile from Brian, if that. The tree was across a wet ditch and up a hill. I thought this would be easy, but I soon found out how slippery those leaves really are. I hung on to those little trees and tried to pull myself along, sliding backwards a few times and once I even fell into the wet ditch. Once up to the tree I helped Brian & Jimmy throw the wood down the hill...We had to throw it twice to get it all the way down & then load it into the trailer. Today I was tired for some unknown reason and really wasn't that much help...but I did what I could. I think we were all a bit tired or maybe it was just the cold air.
We didn't work long, only cutting up a branch or two of the large oak. See our small pile in the trailer? There was a special play at the church, starting at 6 p.m., and Brian, Reva & Brandon had planned on going to it...and the hill had worn me out anyway...I was ready to quit. Thank goodness Brandon & Reva were there to help unload the wood when we got to Brian's. It didn't take long with everyone helping. I told Brandon that he was coming with us next time, when we finish cutting up the tree because we "old folk" need some young person to help us out. *LOL* He didn't act to enthused about my request. He's 12 and almost a teenager.
On the way home we stopped and picked up a pizza and I took this picture while in traffic of the beautiful sunset. It was much prettier, but taking the picture through my dirty windshield didn't help it any.
When we left the house, the stockings looked like this...But when we walked in, with pizza in hand, the stockings were scattered all over the floor and my curtain rod was slightly bent. Well I can't complain too much, at least they stayed up there untouched for 4 whole days. Nothing else was touched...thank goodness.
Jybow is my first suspect and she looks all tuckered out like she's been working hard on something...But I can't be sure it was her because Daisy is looking very suspicious too!!!
Or maybe it was this suspicious looking bunch...they look pretty guilty...Look at their faces! and tell me that they don't look like they just got caught with their hands on the curtain rod?
