I posted last week that we tend to get more done by 10:00 am then most people do all day and today bore that out. While Mr. B split wood, I transported and stacked. I used the new tractor, which had a bit of a learning curve..... My first trip, I put it in neutral and took off the brake. I then proceeded to careen backwards down the hill with Mr. B riding shotgun on the side, yelling "brake, BRAKE!" while I stomped every pedal except for the brake. Thanks to his quick thinking and turning the wheel at the bottom of the hill, the mayhem was kept to a minimum, although I did need to blot the seat off. Fortunately I am a fast learner so the rest of the day went without mishap.
Today I managed to stack about a thousand pounds of wood (we're making pieces/parts of the tree that landed on the barn). My part was easy, comparatively (Mr. B split all of the stuff I stacked with an axe), but now I can look at those ricks of wood and smile with satisfaction. More tomorrow, but Mr. B has said that he'll make breakfast first!!
