I have been in an awful funk and unwilling to write or share. I take the pictures and like those silly commercials, they remain on my disk in the camera. Shameless.
Last Friday I had the first of my surgeries on my veins. I have been so worried about the pain and the end results, and if it were really necessary, etc, etc, etc. I know it was, but I was doing my best to convince myself that it was not.
There was really no pain involved. I am surprised.
So, in other news we had a band of lightning and high winds come through early Friday morning. We are OK, but some folks on the east side the Athens area sustained wind damage from an F-O class tornado. I didn’t think such a thing existed, but it does. And apparently it can tear things up pretty good. No one was hurt and that is a blessing!
Then, later when we got home from my leg surgery we got a call from one of the neighbors up on the Mountain. Guess some of the big “bendy winds”, as my friend Celi, from The Kitchen’s Garden, likes to call them, came through and took out quite a few large trees. We talked to another neighbor by phone and he said it appeared that the house and the outbuildings held up.
We don’t know which trees, or the size of the trees, but the ones he said came down on his place are all LARGE TREES.
We thought we were going to be taking advantage of the much cooler weather to begin work on the inside of the farmhouse… guess it will be all chainsaw work now.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures from my last visit before the big bendy wind came. 😀
I will post pictures of what we found late Sunday evening. I go in for my second leg surgery on Monday morning (the left this time). This will be better because now I know what I’ll face.
Oh yes, and did I tell you I am awake for this?
