Sunday morning we awoke to the last few raindrops of Hurricane Irene.
I don't know if you can tell here, but our silver maple had fallen and landed on our power line. And, we never lost power. I called the electric company and they sent a tree service - who cut the tree off of the power line (while it was live) and then basically said, "here you go".
So, Rob and the kids got to work.
I decided our little lumberjacks needed a hearty lunch. I used some challah bread I'd purchased at Trader Joe's a few weeks ago (and had frozen for a future use). I mixed eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla and poured it over the slices of challah for about five minutes.
I fried the slices of bread with butter in my electric skillet.
French toast, crispy bacon, nectarines and plums - a perfect lumberjack breakfast.
I should note that after this lunch, the girls totally played the rest of the day. Rob's friend came over with two chain saws and the guys worked for the rest of the afternoon.
Our yard is looking better - but empty. We're hoping to do some planting next spring.
