Saturday was a wash out but Sunday was the most beautiful day ever. We woke up our first frost of the season on the windshield of the truck but that quickly disappeared and we were left with clear blue skies and 16 degrees, perfect fall weather for working outdoors.
Whats left of the load of poplar logs we had delivered in May have to be sawn before winter so we decided we better get at it.
Woke up Thursday morning to a temperature, including humidity, of 32 degrees celsius. Oh… and rain.
Its a wash out!
We started on building a shed this past week. We recycled 2×6 pressure treated boards that came off of a deck we dismantled a couple years ago.

It was a quiet weekend here, uneventful really, just how we like it. Saturday was hot and humid but Sunday was cool and cloudy. We spent Saturday morning revisiting the first side of the shipping container.
Hard to believe how fast the weeks go by. Not complaining that its Friday but just sayin.
Almost time to eat it.
A neighbour we had never met before contacted Jim to see if we were able to bring the chipper over to his property. He had heard us using it at our house.

We didn’t waste any time getting back to operation cleanup!! The next morning we headed out and first up was loading the newly re-built wood bin with the pile of maple firewood we picked up for free in Guysborough. We had to cut and split them. I just set aside any that were too large and they would be split smaller later.
Back breaking work.
Before we move on to the other side of the shipping container we decided to do a much needed cleanup of our work area. In the background of this pic you can see the 2 large piles of logs that need to be dealt with.

While Jim is on the mend, I thought I would show you around our yard this summer.

Hey, we are still alive, or better yet Jim is.
Berry picking time.
