What can I say besides the fact that we are so relaxed here that -- if we don't get any sewing done - who cares? We didn't spend quite so much time at the dinner table, but we had other things we needed to get done!
We are all sleeping like babies here. Since some babies don't sleep well, is that a good expression to use? But it's so darn peaceful here; I could stay here forever. In my case, it's likely peaceful because Lexi and Murphy are not here! But then I miss their furry antics, so I'll be happy to go home, but not until tomorrow! I love the small retreats (we are four), as they are so relaxing and calm and peaceful!
I know the trees that fell in our forest are NOTHING compared to some of the damage around the province, but I wanted to share some things about them with you.
So this small tree crashed to the ground, and rightly so since it looked like a dead one. No big deal, the girls jumped over this one, no problem.
|MOM -- what's this tree here for? Now I have to JUMP over it - I hate jumping!|
Another tree crashed into another one and never made it to the ground. How did I see that? The leaves were very dark in one spot as the two treetops collided.
|The top of this tree crashed|
Another dead tree fell across the path, but I didn't get a picture of it.
And then there was this HUGE maple tree that fell across the path.
|A significant tree came down|
|The inside was hollow|
|The other part of the tree is also hollow|
|There's the center of the tree|
|Lots of sawdust from the center of the tree|
|The bark split open o this tree|
|Trees that got bent or broken|
|This is literally a shell of a tree|
|This tree is hanging by a thread|
|A small tree in our neighborhood went down|
|A new path around the tree|
