I enjoined her to sing a song while I sawed some properly sized pieces of a red oak her husband had felled for us. She relieved me on the saw when I got tired (and she didn't even make me sing).
We tapped the plugs in with a hammer. Cubs watched from atop the fridge. It was somewhere along about this time Lea made a pun about plugging away.
She had beeswax melting on the stove, and we sealed the plugs with the wax.
The gray kitty, Ghee, was absolutely thrilled with the finished product. What a fascinating scratching post, and let's have a lick of beeswax!
We took a walk afterward. I thought Lea was picking up all the ticks, but I found two on me when I got home. Lea kept one log and I took one home.
I enlisted the taller help to take the log from the car and put it in a shady place under the Leyland.
Hopefully we'll have some shiitake mushrooms come fall.
It was a great day (even though I almost backed out because of the cracked windshield). Thanks, Lea, for the lunch and for a great time.
