The tree guys came to take down an old, dying Russian Olive tree in the next-door neighbor's yard. You can see that the tree is very close to the fence between our yards, so some of the action was also in our yard.
I was kind of sad about it at first because this tree had been there for a long time and gave us a lot of shade, but it had actually gotten pretty ugly and dangerous to the houses because of a big split in the trunk. I don't know if you can tell, but there is a beautiful green tree just on the other side of the old tree that has become the view from our window, and I'm loving it!
I liked their truck (it's purple!) and their business name, too! We Love Trees! I also liked seeing Mike "supervising!"
The other day we went to Boulder and drove past this painted cement wall. I made Mike go back for a photo! I like all the painted designs - they remind me of EPP projects I see people doing.
I've been enjoying this book, No Scrap Left Behind, by Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts. She is the guru of scrap quilters and I love all of her projects. I want to make one of each!
I also like that I could check this book out of my local public library before deciding if I will buy it or not. It does look like one I might want to own so I could refer back to it whenever I want.
I like planning a trip! It's fun to send away for information and pour over the map. You can find a lot of good stuff for traveling online, too, so I have lists of things to do, restaurants, etc. I like looking forward to visiting one of my favorite places in the world!
Happy Thursday, friends! I'm joining in with the I Like Thursday bloggers over at Not Afraid of Color. Thanks, as always, to LeeAnna, for gathering us together!
