Mother nature takes sides

I love living in an older house because it means we have mature landscaping such as five mature trees on our property. That also means a lot of raking, but that’s another story.

We have a maple tree that the manfriend detests because it shades parts of the garden. He’s been wanting to lop the top of that sucker off for several years and I’ve been a firm advocate that we NOT do that.

Well, the wet nasty snow storm we’re currently experiencing took all decision making out of our hands this morning:

And so there you have proof that mother nature takes sides. I loose.

Oh, and on the other side of the yard? Right before I left this morning for work I noticed a HUGE branch dangling by a thread. When that suckers goes, it will take a large chunk of the fence with it. Fence the manfriend will have to then repair. Boo yah!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
