Sitting around the yard
That’s how I started the day. But first I had to tend the chickens. Feed them and check their water and let them out.
Then I spent a couple hours chair hopping around the yard, just taking it easy and waking up.
I seem to have a routine going. Mess around in the yard for a few hours then head up into the hills to work in the forest, getting plenty of exercise in the process.
I decided to take it easy today and do some more work with the chainsaw.
Old dead logs
Poison oak vine
This poison oak vine was hanging across the trail. I carefully cut it out and pulled it out of the way. Even though I don’t catch poison oak, I have to be careful of the chainsaw chips as the sap in them can turn skin black where it hits you.
Favorite resting spot
I made it to my favorite resting spot and took a much needed break. I like this break spot but the trail goes right through the tree where I sit so I had a look at things and discovered the old animal trail really went through the lower part of the tree, so I was able to keep my resting spot. I piled some rocks under the tree to hold it up when I cut it.
I walked up the trail a bit more and trimmed a couple more small trees off the trail and by this time it was almost dark and I was pretty warn out.
I headed on home.
