I had cooked up the chickens a big pot of goulash, chicken broth, crab shells and food scraps and flour, and put it in their bowl and fed it to them this morning.
Headed up into the hills
It was supposed to rain again tonight but so far it was holding off for the day. That meant I could go up into the forest and do some work and get some exercise.
Big fir log
Wood block slider
I stuck this piece of wood under the log to give it something to slide on when it got cut and lucky I did. I didn’t want the log to get stuck on the ground so I wouldn’t be able to move it out of the way.
Second cut, stuck saw
Got the saw freed up
But now the log was hung up on this little smaller log. I was able to get in there carefully and move that little log and when I did, the larger log started to go down the hill pretty fast, but I was off to the side of it and it sped past me safely.
Hung up again
But now the six foot piece of log I cut was stuck here, just barely, and it needed to get pushed down the hill, just for safety. I was thinking I could lay down on my back and push it with my feet, so I tried that.
Gave it a good push
Cut these logs too
That was enough work for one day so I picked up my saw and rode on home.
At least the weather guys were right and the rain held off until after dark.
