|"trees are poetry |
the earth writes
into the sky"
|i love trees.|
that is a picture of me hugging a tree...
down there on the end of my side bar....
|so it was after great thought and consideration,|
that mr. dan and i decided to have 5 large trees removed from our front yard yesterday.
|this big old one|
was starting to lean precariously towards the street.
|after 12 years living in this house|
and watching these trees grower taller and taller and filling in the sky
and becoming more of a nuisance....
|we made the hard|
to let them go....
and it was hard.
did i mention it was hard?
mr. dan quite enjoyed the 8 hours of noisy chainsawing and grinding.
he is such a guy.
a cute guy, i must admit.
|later, he prepared our fire pit for our annual new years eve campfire.|
as you can see, we still have lots and lots of trees out back!
|my rather disturbing view out the kitchen window.|
i was surprisingly emotional about this whole ordeal....
and yet at the same time
excited about the change and extra sunshine.
|and just like that....|
i am looking forward to a
and all the
a new slate
and new canvas
has to offer.
|i believe in looking forward...|
is looking really good.
happy new year!
