Projects with Paul

As if baking an Oregon tart cherry pie weren't kind enough, 
Paul graciously offered to help me with some projects around the ranch on Saturday. 

In preparation, we ate pie for breakfast.

Replace boards on manure spreader...check.

Saw off bottom of wire panel that made 
an annoying racket when it scraped against the stones...check.

Replace shut-off valve on portable water tank...check.

Unclog slow-draining kitchen sink...check.

Serve as yarn bobbin ... check.

Walk Smooch ... check.

Let it be known that Danni provided valuable supervision to all of these projects.

And when the day was done, we all sat down to watch Hannah and Chico
walk around Wales in Seaside Donkey.


  1. talk about a working holiday... you are blessed with true friends.

  2. What more could you ask for! What a productive day. Betsy

  3. Oooooh that slice of cherry pie looks AWFULLY GOOD! ;)

  4. Many thanks to Paul and Danni for joining the crew on the 7MSN, and fixing those annoying and mostly invisible to the naked eye projects that add up, but NEED fixing. Are you guys on Angie's List?! :) And, OK, that photo of the cherry pie actually made my mouth should go into a high end Foodie Magazine! Oh, and I'm glad that Smooch is so fascinated with Chico's journey...wish I could sleep so soundly :)

  5. I'm not a big pie fan, but that looks awesome. Great way to hang out with friends, small chores and Danni walk with Smooch. Your hair is getting long. Dont' usually see it - hat (and of course camera pointed away).Wasn't expecting a post but looked anyway. Feels like a bonus :)

  6. Looks like a wonderful time with great friends. Blessed you are! Aunt Jean

  7. sounds like a great holiday!

    Yum!! Pie for breakfast!!
    It looks soooooo good!!

    I'm glad that it seems like you are enjoying your time together!! =)

  9. Yummy pie! So glad someone can fix things right the first time ;-) plus cook and bake?! Clone that man!
    Looks like loads of fun...( the supervision and walks)

  10. I love everything about this. Pie, it's what's for breakfast (if you don't have cake), and Hannah and Chico's video! Sigh.

  11. for me, the word FRIEND is the most beautiful in the world, even better than its overused collateral LOVE (like in pure love)

  12. Pie for breakfast ... Apple is my choice. This morning it was a B'day cupcake .

    Thanks to Danni for documenting the projects. Its got to be more fun with friends along to give a hand. Love the day out ... a beautiful day for a hike and a burger.

  13. You guys always seem to have the best time together, whether it be work or play, and that pie looks way too yummy! 😋😋😋

  14. OMG! Pie is my middle name. Breakfast, lunch and dinner please. Good times at your house for sure.

  15. Does Tall Paul have a single brother? (Not for me)

    1. Sorry, I have only one married brother. :-/ I just like to fix things. :-)
