Hi there, after much debate and a tree trim, we have decided to remove the Cypress trees because they are:
Too close to the columns/pillars.
They were planted a long time ago (not by us) and should have been removed at least 20 years ago.
It makes it hard to paint the house right now.
They are so big they hide the house.
They are all dry inside and they are actually a fire hazard and these trees shouldn't be planted close to anyone's home.
The Umbrella plant invasive as it is is practically killing one of the trees and is lifting the cement.
But still, I don't want to KILL plants.
My job this afternoon and tomorrow is to dig up the surrounding plants and pot them and then save them to plant again after the trees are removed. I need to get more potting soil and enlist the help of my son to make sure it gets done!
I rented the movie "The Social Network" last night and watched it and returned it this morning at a RedBox location. I thought it was good and informative. It left you with YOU being able to make up your own mind what happened. That aspect makes it a good movie. It lets you be a part of the movie similar to movies made years ago ya know, the ones without the sex blatantly in your face. They'd kiss and the bedroom door would close and left the rest up to your own imagination. Now it's all about seeing 'em naked and well, I'm not a prude but I never think that, THAT makes or breaks a movie. I'm not on Facebook yet. Maybe one of these days. People say I should have my little shop on there and maybe I should. Hmm. Decisions, decisions.
I'm pleased with myself as I finally made the Chevron stitch work. I just needed to be full awake to do it. I kept messing up the counts. Will have some pics to share next week.
When I went in the market this morning to return the movie I planned on getting a few things for the weekend and being in a kinda rush since I had to go to the bank before I opened the store, I rushed around picked out some food (mostly bread darn-it, good deals always win me over) and since I was rushing, I didn't make coffee so I picked up a cup and then they had some free donut holes so I ate a couple of those and a small hunk went down my sleeve of my sweatshirt and as I was leaving the store maneuvering the basket and coffee splashed onto my arm and inside onto the other sleeve. Geez, I could snack on my sweatshirt messes. Isn't it weird that, that kind of stupid stuff sometimes makes ya mad and sometimes ya just laugh at those things in life. This morning, I laughed.
|Why I'm not thin!|
I hope you have plenty to laugh at this weekend.
