760

760

Saturday. I’m sore and awake since 7.30am. WTF! It’s Saturday and my kids are not here this weekend. I should be sleeping.
Yesterday I decided to shred more bushes and I told my kids that we could roast marshmallows again if they helped me collecting the twigs and breaking some branches.
I discovered that if I cut the branches in advance, instead of breaking them just before shredding, I could work much faster.

That was the pile I had to shred last week. You can’t see it but underneath there is a kind a brick structure more or less 5 x 5m / 16 x 16ft big.

That’s my cute little robin staring at me while working. I saw him every day and I’m afraid I destroyed his house.

That’s how the pile “to process” looked like yesterday. You can see the structure now.

That’s the pile “ready to shred”

Those are the branches that I’ll be cutting with the chaisaw

Those are the ones that I’ll cut with the axe

Those are the ones we cut and will be burned soon

That’s what I saved to make my decorative project

That’s the job almost done. You can see the full structure there. (Chainsaw and axe work still pending)

That’s part of the mess I’ll have to clean

That’s me while working. I’m still not sure why I’m smiling

And that’s more or less how the decorative project will look like

I need more lights and a nice pot.

I can’t believe I finished shredding. I’m glad my kids helped me a bit.
Yesterday before leaving my son said: “Are we done? Or we’ll find a new pile on Monday?”
“…” I didn’t want to ruin his weekend. I’m not sure I’ll be able to do much today. I’d love to saw some more but using the axe kind of killed me. I feel like my right arm and shoulder area are bigger than the left.
I hope it’s only my impression. I always freak out when I see those female tennis players who are only half huge.

I wonder what men think about women with noticeable muscles. Do they think those women are the sportive kind?
“Hey, I notice you play tennis, right?”
“No, not really. I have these muscles because I can’t use the chainsaw to cut some branches so I do it with an axe”.

Let’s hope they have these image in their minds.

Instead of these ones

To be honest, I think I look like the last two. And if I could caption the images when I’m using the axe or chainsaw, that’d be: “Break mother f#$ker, break” (said between teeth, of course).
