We have a lot of trees. More trees than anywhere we’ve ever lived in our lives ---and I love them.
I love being tucked in under the green shade of leaves in the summer to the point where I can’t see any neighbors at all unless I try really hard…
I love the smell of woods in all seasons….
I love to hear the wind blowing through the branches…
I even love the sound of the acorns bouncing off the roof and on to the back deck….but those acorns are NOT so fun when you can’t see where you are walking in the dark on the way to the hottub for a midnight soak…and mistakenly step on one!
I don’t like the branches that break off and take out the power or block the driveway in a wind storm or ice storm—so today I had some guys come by to take out some of the big dead limbs and a few other dead trees that could prove to be a hazard in the upcoming winter months.
You shoulda seen this guy! He had these spike things on his shoes, a belt around this waist..and a rope…and up he went. Just that fast --- like nothing at all!
It didn’t take them long at all, and the dead wood was set aside for chopping for firewood later, or disposing of ---Now I don’t have to worry about DH trying to do something like this to save money and break his neck!
Now THAT’s what I call a tree hugger!!
I was a good girl today. I stuck to it, I did! We are ready for part 3 of Orca Bay to go live tomorrow morning!
I also finished up one pattern section of the next book, and sent it off to my editor ahead of schedule! Woot! On a roll now. Now that December is here I really need to buckle down and get those patterns written out.
When I was done, and had hit SEND --- I rewarded myself with a bit of this:
It’s all laid out and ready to sew together! Might get the center done tonight. Now I’m thinking of the next thing it needs --- BORDERS! Another
What do you think? Does she keep it simple, or does she just keep on marching on, Bonnie style?!
