Happiness is...


There's nothing quite as much fun as heading outside and felling small trees.

What is it with men and cutting down trees? My hubby cut down a couple that were off our property line, but precariously hanging over our fence and they were dead. These were no small trees. He read up how to do it, on the internet of course, and proceeded to cut them both down. They fell precisely where he wanted. He felt like such a stud! His brother was so enthralled that he had him come cut a tree in his yard that was preventing his HD satellite from getting reception. Of course my husband could turn down an opportunity to show off his "studliness" to his younger brother-ROFL!

I too enjoy a nice day in the woods WATCHING my husband cut down trees. We spent some time this summer clearing a pasture that had become overgrown. I was just thinking this morning that I was sad that we hadn't taken the time to cut our own fire wood this summer. I guess we will have to buy some, but it sure is more fun for the family to cut and gather instead!
grace and peace,
julie

Hubby keeps saying that he will teach me to use the chainsaw (I do believe the one he just bought is the same one your feller is holding!) and I do believe that he will...eventually...if I keep asking. But I think it is akin to my teaching him to use the washing machine....territorial! They turn into little boys pushing over a hill of plastic soldiers with a Tonka bulldozer 'cept this toy has a very loud motor and actually CUTS! LOL!

And that look is the same look that hubby gets too! I love that look.

LOL...

Out of curiosity...if you celebrate Christmas (some do some don't), does your husband cut down the tree every year? :)

Dawn,
That's a good question. This will be our first December here... I'm not sure if he plans to cut down a tree or not. I wouldn't be surprised, though. :)
We do celebrate Christmas. No Santa, minimal (and utilitarian) gifts even for the kids, etc. We have been gradually scaling down Christmas for the last few years. We don't know where the Lord is leading us in this area. We've decided that we will put nothing "off-limits" to God, so we won't be clinging to Christmas if He convicts us that we shouldn't celebrate it.
