I liked this....it's called "Lady In The Leaves".....so pretty.
We have PLENTY of leaves everywhere right now....stripped off of trees from the storms. It's weird how that happens.
One of my poor little rose bushes was doing so well.....then that wretched Gustav just RIPPED it to shreds. It's nearly naked now. UGH!
Yesterday, I heard a bunch of big vehicle noises.
I went out the door and saw a little "Caterpillar" thing literally MOVING the junk, and leaves, and tree limb piles from house to house. It was odd how it worked.
The man would take the smaller piles of yard "trash" for lack of a better word....and move it to one yard......then take all that and move it to another yard making they pile he was moving BIGGER and BIGGER.....then he would stop when it go so big.
Then do it again,and again.
He skipped my neighbors pile because it was SOOOO BIG already......
This is Ms. Karol and Mr. Joe's tree pile....it covered part of our parking and both of theirs and the neighbors on the other side of them.This pile is much taller than me......this photo doesn't do it justice really. But look how long it goes on down the way.
It's like this EVERYWHERE in town....
Then the BIG DADDY truck came.....and did this.
They worked until it was gone and until they had cleaned up our ENTIRE street!!
What a relief to get this junk off our lawns finally.....
This process went faster than I thought. I didn't think they would come and remove this stuff for a long time because there's SO much of it all over the city.
We are fortunate to have this done so fast actually.
Right after the storm my neighbor Kim from across the street brought me a bag full of beautiful "Limes" that they had rescued from their Lime tree that was pulled out of the ground by the storm.
I think to think of them as "Sweet Offerings" from the storm.
"Something GOOD always comes out of something BAD."
I believe that.
***Sorry for showing the "bare" electrical outlet. It's a tad tacky I know but it's where we are at.
We are NEARLY done remodeling now.....all we have to do is tile the walls under the cabinet and put on the new electrical coverings and we are DONE!
We just haven't had time to finish it (can't imagine why can you??) and it won't be done now until we get back from New York, which is fine......
It's all good and operational and beautiful thus far.***
I'll post photos later when the kitchen is finally completed.***
