June and July are always full of home improvements. Steve is out of school for the summer, the weather is great, and we dive into home type stuff. Steve cleaned out the entire basement, plus the garage. He supervised repairs we couldn't tackle ourselves like the header above the garage doors, and moved on to landscaping. I ironed 4 Fat Quarters. We're exhausted!
The two huge pine trees in the back yard were beautiful, but grew to block the entire picture window. It was time for them to come down, along with all the scrubby growth along the fence, dead trees, hanging limbs, and the locust tree in the front lawn that was threatening to take out both our electricity AND Internet. I was out shopping for fabric when the first tree came down, but click the video above to see Pine Tree #2.
I was marveling at the tremendous improvement in the way the yard looked after the tree guys left. And then I realized we had just chopped down the two trees in which I hang the hand dyed underpants from the Yo-Yo Sisterhood of the Traveling Panties! Great! Now I'm going to have to hang them in the front yard. Don't worry, nobody will be able to read your names on the waistbands as they drive by unless they get out of their cars. I'll stand guard.
