Mark and I have been busy this weekend. You may recall that on Tuesday I started cutting some of the brushy stuff out of our side yard. I had Friday, Saturday, and today off work, so guess what I did?
The little trees that are still standing will have to be cut by Mark because I couldn’t cut them with my big clippers. In fact, I broke the big clippers on the last tree I cut down. I guess I overworked them.
I cleared that all out in four days. Not bad for an out of shape old woman who will be turning 62 on Wednesday! As I was building this pile yesterday, I told my neighbor, Lynn that I was building a beaver dam. I guess it looks a bit more like a beaver lodge at this point.
While I was finishing it up today, Mark took his motorcycle down to Sturgeon Bay to meet with a couple guys from an organization called BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse). Mark has frequently wished he could do something good with his bike and when he saw a video about this organization last week, he googled to see if he could find a local chapter to join. If you’re interested in seeing more about what BACA does, here is a ten minute YouTube video that explains the whole thing, including the long process for joining:
I’m very proud of Mark for wanting to do this, and he’s proud of me for all the yard work I did this last week. It’s so nice when it’s mutual!
