my blood ran cold....

We went out wood-cutting today. And this is what I saw:

Tell me that photo doesn't make your blood run cold! Frightened the heck out of me but a boy's gotta do what a boy's gotta do.


A cup of tea and a lamington. Can you get any more Aussie than that without a BBQ?

The road:

I wish I could post the smells of wet earth and leaves, the sound of the trees in the breeze, and the perfect birdsong (till the chainsaw started up anyway)


The end result. This means a toasty warm house for the next few weeks (:

* The Handsome Son was NOT allowed to actually cut the wood, either with an axe OR the chainsaw. And his dad was supervising carefully. Just sayin'.


  1. Yep would frighten the heck outta me!!!!

  2. BOYS. Sometimes I don't think they're happy unless they're scaring their mothers.

  3. Toni ABSOLUTELY LUV the pic 'cup of tea & a lamington" it sure is SOOOOOOOOO AUSSIE!!!!

  4. Omgoodness Toni "Boys were made to scare the hell out of their mothers "
    But how sweet is that photo of Katie and her brother,
    Katie is growing up so fast Toni

  5. Hi Toni, where bouts is that? Looks like the camping spot we go to.

  6. Mmmm ... I can smell that fresh-cut wood from here ...

    It's always scary seeing little ones doing "Big Boy" stuff ... you must be very calm to have been able to take that photo. :)

  7. Oh, that would do me in! But love the fresh cut wood. And what a cute picture of your kids.
