Cleaning up debris

We spent the day moving the bulk of the fallen tree debris from the backyard to the curb so that waste management can collect it up for recycling they are collecting separately from household waste. I am impressed with the amount of progress we made but it is just a dent and we still have more of the trees to get with a real chainsaw (high demand here) before we are finished. but at least the kids can play safely in the back yard now. Day six and still no power. I miss cold milk, eggs, cheese and fresh ground coffee but other than that, I could go another 6 months like this heehee!

For Dinner we had spaghetti one night, BBQ Chicken with saute onions and bell peppers and for breakfast we ad oatmeal with fresh apples and cinnamon and this morning was hash browned potatoes gravy and scratch pancakes (fine even without eggs). With a good supply of aseptic milk and juice boxes we are in tall cotton.
