I think I’m over my pity party regarding my van. Thank you for attending . Now I’m just struck by the immenseness of all this.
That’s a whole lotta tree. It’s awfully cool in a “destructive force of nature that thankfully hurt no one” kind of way.
Look at the size of that tree trunk! We could make a coffee table out of a slice of that. (Too bad I’m the only one who thought that was a neat idea.)
We’re thinking of leaving the remaining spike there as a warning to the other trees. We’ve already had two tree removal companies drive by and leave us written estimates. Plenty of gawkers have stopped, too.
Friendly neighbors wielding chainsaws and axes came over this morning and helped us clear the driveway. And when I say “us” I mean “Neil.”
I decided I could be of the most help in the kitchen. Making cookies. (What?! You don’t expect me to get my delicate artist hands dirty with menial labor do you? )
I meant to share the cookies and a nice hot drink with our helpful neighbors, but they left before I could offer. Helpful neighbors, if you’re reading this, drop by any time for that drink. You may have to hurry, though, if you want a cookie. They don’t last long around here…
