Clearing the site

It was another weekend spent out at Tilly’s Cottage working on various projects.  Saturday was basically a wash because I went out to do more paint removal and sanding and ended up getting a parade of visitors — most of them unexpected visits — but I was very happy for the distraction which included visits from Clodagh K., Ruby, Jill, Jess, Kalle and Casper and neighbors Josie, Lela, Antony, Charlie, Marie and Gretta — with lots of offers of cups of tea!

On Sunday, my 70-year-old and highly energetic friend, Joe, was kind enough to come over with his chainsaw and help me with a bit of work clearing the site for the extension.  It was pretty back-breaking work but a branch that went astray into the neighbor’s back garden resulted in two cups of steaming hot coffee and black forest cake passed over the wall to us as a reprieve.

I did learn the importance of having rope and a ladder to “train” the tree branches to fall the right direction though!
