We had an early surprise today. We planned sometime in September to have our tree in the backyard cut down. To our surprise they showed up a little early and did it while we were at work. They had the whole job done by lunchtime. It was a little bittersweet. We loved the tire swing we had on the tree and all the memories we had with it. It was our kids’ favorite spots when we first moved in, but with the new addition we had to get rid of the tire swing. The tree itself looked like it could fall over any second, but it was still hanging in there. We opted to get rid of it just in case and we found someone that did the job at a really good price on a whim. They were doing a job down the street and we had just had a front tree removed next to the driveway and laying in our yard, so Jay stopped and asked them to haul ours off that day as well as chop the one down in the back.

The house doesn’t smell as bad now that the stain has aired out, so I ran through and snapped some shots. I can’t really look over everything well to avoid paint fumes, so it’s nice to be able to come home and look at the pictures. Everything looks like it’s primed and ready to go. They even started in on the fireplace and Dining Room Cabinets. I like the Wolf Grey 2127-40 by Benjamin Moore that we decided to go with. I was worried it would have too much blue in it.
