Blaine got home from work the other day and headed off to who knows what project he’d chosen for the evening. With a long list, you never quite know. The next thing I heard was the chainsaw. I went outside to see this. Blaine’s in there somewhere, perched in the tree, chainsaw in hand. It was something I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch. Be there in case something happens or not sit watching, imagining what could happen?!
Sterling commented, as he watched his father perched in the tree
hacking pruning away with the chainsaw, “What is he doing?! That’s ugly.”
One severely deformed tree now has shape. It’s a bit ugly, but I’m assured that once the leaves fill in, it’ll be fabulous. Less ugly than before, anyhow.
Exciting stuff, I tell you. Watching half a tree be felled had everyone gathered to watch. Eden even hollered, “FALLING!” as it fell. I think we need to educate her on the proper terms. It just didn’t have the same dramatic effect as “TIMBER!”.
