As of there wasn't enough on the to do list this weekend, the chinquapin oak decided to fall over the main trail sometime Friday night. Saturday morning's 'to do list' was suddenly put on hold.
The saturated earth could no longer hold back this giant leaning over the trail but beautiful tree. I am sad to see her go. She was one of the largest and most unique trees I have seen on the property.
The trail was cleared and several loads of firewood were hauled up the hill. Thank goodness for brave men and chainsaws.
As you can see, a huge chunk of tree remains, but that will have to be dealt with another day.
We have a nice stack of firewood started. I'm sure it will come in handy next fall and winter.
Next on the list was cleaning out the sheep barn. Somehow this became my job. Maybe because I don't like running the chain saw. Its probably the safest for everyone if I don't.
Even Jako was exhausted!
Finally, there was time for some relaxation.
And time to enjoy a beautiful sunset promising another sunny day.
