Deep Breath...

Hello Friends,

(scroll down to card..if you want to skip my story about the weekend)

This weekend was full of surprises.   The tree men came and cut down the trees.  They originally told us they couldn't squeeze us into their schedule for weeks, but they had a cancelation. We got a phone call that told us they were on the way.    We were only planning on cutting down two trees but after consulting with them it turned into three.   It was a thrilling to watch a man climb a dead 80 foot tree cutting into chunks.  Each piece was planned carefully so it didn't crash into the boat hoist, cottage, or boat house.  These guys were talented!  Our neighbors and passing boats paused to watch these guys work.   When finished we were all under the impression that they would stack the wood for us.  Well... SURPRISE...they didn't.  Check out the photos below. They left us a huge mess.   After a few minutes of family pulled together and went to work.  Ten hours later... the wood was cut and stacked.   My first weekend of resting my foot was an epic fail.  I'm incapable of just sitting things out.  I'm determined to do better this week.

Before Photo:   We cut down the three all the way to the left in the photo.

 We didn't think to take a photo before we started cleaning up.  We stacked a lot of wood on the right, but look how much we still had to go.

Here is a Fishy card to remind us to take a DEEP BREATH and roll with the punches...  I hope you had a great weekend!
