I posted these on my Facebook page last night ~
we had a bad storm come through at about 4:15 last evening...
only lasted for 1/2 an hour, but it was intense!
took down my old, old black walnut in the back of the farmhouse ~
nearly missing the back of what is our pantry and breakfast nook:
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ wow ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
|little Minew was so scared...|
I HATE when big old trees come down ~
this one was almost completely hollow and it had seen better days
~ many of them as I figure it to be a good 50 - 60 yr old tree...
the blacksnakes would slither into the branches of this old tree
~ and sun themselves on early spring mornings.
The baby hummingbirds would rest on the smaller leaves
near the edge of the tree's canopy and chitter to their parents ~
I will miss the shade it provided for us as well as shelter for our fur & feather friends ~
it's time has come and Mother Nature always knows best so Peter will take what wood he can salvage and I know he'll use it to make something beautiful.
|goodbye ~ old friend|
It is hot, humid and sticky out again today.
I do not like it this way.
at all. I don't like the farmhouse closed up with the air on ~
... I'd rather it be wide open with cool breezes flowing through it.
since I'm in here, and working in my sewing room I decided to spiffy it up.
( I tend to be a messy creator!)
here is my 'hub'
yes, that is a Mac and a laptop.
...both on simultaneously.
|i added a chair to the other side of my desk for visitors.|
(ok....Peter, Flea and of course Iggy.)

and wanted to say that this little pendant will be ending today on Ebay ~
thanks for all of your nice comments!
|thank you for visiting my auctions!|
Have a peaceful & creative day my Friends ~
