Night Projects

As I sit on the couch in my family room, quietly reading a good book, I can see out my window. It's 8:00 pm and completely dark.... except for a light that is shining brightly.

It's Bruce working on another "Project". He has his flood light on and his headlight in place, and Dexter, the dog, at his side.

This time he is rebuilding our back fence to keep stray dogs out and our grandkids safely in. He is completely happy out there. The pre dawn hours have seen such sites also. What a gift he has given to my kids and me as well. The gift of work. The gift of creation. The yard we now have is all his creation.

Oh, I work out there by him most of the time (when its light), I pull weeds and help stack firewood, and keep the little garden going, but the overall plan and creation of the yard is all him. What a Man!! I get to just sit back and enjoy the beauty of his work.

Keeping the Home Front Warm

Cutting wood for the winter, is work, but also fun. Bruce got a new chain saw and boy can he get a tree down and chopped up fast now.

Braquel and I would then throw the wood into the trailor. It really stinks when you miss and you have to pick it up again and toss. We got to be pretty good aims.

Here he goes again

View of Pine Valley Mountain.

Can't believe we filled the trailor full. The more hands the quicker it goes. Bruce and I usually go by ourselves, but Braquel really added some great help.

View of the valley below.

The trailor we used was a dump trailor, so we just dumped it. Now we have to go stack it all. Anyone want some great exercise and help us out. Come on over..

This is just a few of many out in my garden. Many are grown, but few are chosen. I then chopped off the tops, and peeled, all of which then went to the composte pile. Never wasting anything, right????? And it gets used in next years garden.

Some were 2 - 3 inches in diameter.
Then we chopped them up and put them in the dehydrator. Did you know you loose only 3 - 5% of their nutiritonal value when you dehydrate.
Finished product.
I used some in my potato soup yesterday, along with some peas that I had frozen from the garden, and I might as well brag a little more the onions and potatoes were also out of my garden. The soup was yummy!!
