Today was supposed to be a day devoted to working on greeting cards, however, have you noticed that things do not always go according to plan? In the morning, I had to help hubby with some business stuff. Then a storm hit and before I knew it, a huge tree in my neighbour's yard broke off at the top due to heavy winds.
Fortunately, it only blocked my neighbour's driveway and the street. We're thankful that the two parked vehicles nearby were far enough away to avoid damage. And no person was hurt. And our favourite neighbourhood cat, Lucy Maude, was away from the site (she dropped by later to check things out). Just a mess to clean up. Hubby got out the old chain saw (guys do love their chain saws) and cut the branches and limbs into manageable pieces while my neighbour and I hauled them to the side of the road. We cleared the drive and road but a pro will have to come in and take down the tree.
Afterwards, we sat down and had some beers and traded travel stories with my neighbour. She was away visiting family in Birmingham, England while we were on our trip.
So that was a little bit of excitement in our neck of the woods today.
Tomorrow is another day and I will try again to work on some cards.
