I mentioned it to one of my most un-girly girlfriends and she said, “I have tools. Don’t pay anyone, we can do it ourselves.”
So this morning, bright and early after a really fun and really late night at Tumbleweed’s with L.A. Lyon, armed with a chain saw, a hand saw and a ladder, we set up getting my neighbor’s view of the mountains.
I was unsure we could handle it. I had visions of a possible missing limb or You Tube videos of two crazy women falling out of tree. But we are both still alive with all our fingers and toes intact. There were a couple of mishaps. A pretty good sized branch fell on my arm and I am sure there will be a mark. My friend hit herself in the jaw with the hand saw. But all in all, it was more “Property Brothers” than “I Love Lucy.”
Despite some stiff muscles and bruises, it was actually a lot of fun! We laughed a lot and I think provided a bit of entertainment for the older gentlemen who live behind my house. We also commented on how instead of spending an afternoon spending money on overpriced shoes and purses, we not only saved money, but accomplished something.
Tonight I will take some of the fire wood we created, start a fire in my fire pit, pour myself a glass of wine and enjoy that view. Yes, we are women. Hear us roar!
