Christmas Tree

tree.jpgToday some friends came over to cut a Christmas tree. The weather was in the 30s, so we got wet being out there. We looked at a lot of trees until we found the best one too. I always enjoy this process and am rarely disappointed. It is nice just to get outside in the beautiful snow. Franco likes it too. For some reason known only to him, he prefers a variety of stick throwers, rather than standardizing on just one. And his insistent looks melts the hearts of most reluctant throwers.

I looked at the potential lunar eclipse last night about midnight, and was disappointed to see some high clouds that fogged the whole thing. I went to bet hoping to wake up as usual around 2:30, but didn’t wake up until 4:30. The moon had moved, but the clouds had not. Even with binoculars I couldn’t make out any hint of an eclipse unless I used my imagination. You win some you lose some.

Walking around I see more and more big spruce trees are dying, and I really need to get out and get them cut down and skidded to the sawmill. It would be a shame to lose all that good material to rot.
