Fire season is once again looming. I've been lucky enough to have a friend cut down a few trees, limb up others, and attack the underlying brush.
This has left lots of debris piles strewn across my property.
Originally, I was going to use my little wood chipper (barely visible in front of the barn,) but quickly found its just not able to do this much work. (Neither am I.)
The debris pile in the rear of the above photo is about 8' tall, and there are many more piles surrounding the house which are equally as high.
So... I ordered a debris bin, which should be here a week from Monday.
The last time I ordered a bin, was when my husband and I decided to clean out the junk the previous owner had left in and around the barn.
A day or so before retrieval, he
decided we should take down the old light fixtures and throw them in too. He cut himself badly doing this, and I had to take him down to the local hospital for stitches. (He ignored my warning to wear gloves.)
After getting home, he ripped off his bandages declaring air was good for the wound. Wrong!
Several days later, he began feeling ill.
A few days later, I had to call 9-1-1.
He died of septic shock.
You can believe I always
wear my gloves, as well as safety glasses, when I do anything "handymannish."
Anyway... I'm keeping busy, but wanted to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
