The TreeHouse Chronicles--Day 91

After last week's frenzy of activity, I was expecting to see a bit more progress this week.


But, alas...the activity was nil.

None.


Zip.

Nada.


I think my mighty hunter had different things on his mind...like a giant trophy buck, or something.

Does it make me a terrible wife that I hope every year he doesn't shoot one? Man, I feel guilty even putting that on paper...or screen, I guess...but I just can't eat deer meat! I don't mind the taste...it's the thought that gets me!!!

Those sweet little deer eyes, just looking at you innocently.

Yup, can't do it.

But, anywho...I digress.

So, no progress this week...and I'm afraid for next week. We have, like, 32 ton (something else I don't understand...why is the plural of, say pound, pounds...but the plural of ton is...ton? And you can shoot one deer or three deer, but you drink one beer or three beers. I don't get it. I feel sorry for anyone having to learn the English language...)...bah...gosh, see there I go again, getting all side tracked!

What I was gonna say, is we've got a whole boatload of leaves in our yard...like, crazy, freaky amounts of leaves...and any spare time we have from here on out, will be to get the stupid things off the ground before it snows.

Because, lemme tell ya a little somthin':

Fall = dry leaves (easy to rake)

Spring = wet leaves (and lot's of sweating and swearing...well, not so much swearing, just a lot of muttering under your breath--"stupid, stinkin' wet leaves...whose idea was it to wait 'til spring, anyway? Dumb, dumb wet leaves..."--somethin' like that.)

We've actually considered having a leaf raking party:

You're invited!!
Bring your own rake,
and a lot of stick-to-
itiveness.
We'll feed you supper (deer meat likely),
Please RSVP ASAP,
We need you!!!


Yeah, somethin' along the lines of that!

So, will you help? ;)

  2. I've been raking my own leave for the past 3 days and still not done, ugh! Oh, and I am hoping my hubby doesn't get a deer either but because I don't want to have the "there's nowhere to hang a deer head in our house" conversation...again. :)

  5. My Rugrat Daughter just asked My Hunk when he was going to ever build her the tree house she wants. He replied "Probably when you have children"
    She didn't find as much humor in it as Hunk did.

    BTW- My Hunk is a hunter too and I also feel guilty over secretly hoping the deer are very good and hide and seek.
