Thar she falls...

The last few days have been miserable with these allergies of mine. It almost feels like I have a cold. Speaking of cold.. it's been unseasonably chilly here this year, and the last two days have been so windy!

Ouch. I had to take a blogging break because I realized that today is Wednesday, and hubby hadn't taken the trash out. I'm so glad I had the thought to put on my shoes and jacket, (normally I would go barefoot) because I missed the trash truck by 15 seconds. That's ok, because the truck will come back up the other side after a little while. So, I drag the trash can across the street, pull it right up to the curb. As I did that, I stepped in a small hole, my ankle turned, (did I mention I'm wearing my flip flops?) and I fell backwards with the can coming on top of me. I swear my legs would have been straight in the air had it not been for the can holding them down. Yeah. It wasn't pretty. Fell right on my ass. Laugh... I will later! (except you Doug.. you aren't allowed mister!) ;)

Back to being windy. Doug went out to his car and rushed back in. Did you see what's in our back yard, he asks? I'm like, NO! So we run to the sunroom and there it is. Yeah, the tree in the backyard split sometime between 7:15am - 8am.

Poor sand table and umbrella. Their under there somewhere.
So happy the kids & dogs weren't out there when it split. I'm going to miss the privacy that tree provides. Maybe we'll plant a new one in the spring.

And as I'm sitting here looking at the title of my post, I realize how ironic LIFE can be sometimes. LOL

  1. sorry about your fall!! But I laughed!!!
    the tree looks lonely!! Poor little tree!!

  2. Oh no Leah, I'm glad your okay, for the most part with the could have happened when the garabe man was driving up, Heehee...LOL!!!!
    Its been crazy chilly/windy here too lately....that stinks about the tree.
    Have a wonderful day girl ;o)

  3. Oh My Goodness, I can't believe that you fell like that, although I did chuckle when I was reading it. Sounds like something that I would do! What a mess with the tree. We are having the same kind of weather and I was so scared last night to go to sleep with that wind so bad. We have three trees in the back yard that are over 100 years old, and I keep telling my husband I want them taken down! I kept thinking they were going to come crashing into the bedroom. Thank goodness no one was hurt. Sorry about your yucky Wednesday!

  4. just wanted to say i love your very festive playlist! :)


  5. Oh no! So sorry about your wipeout! I'm with ya, I do that all the time! Bummer about the tree too!

  6. Oh, Leah, I hope you aren't sore... but you know, today's post would make a great layout ;o)... interesting twist on some tree embellies or pp, huh?

  7. OUCH!! on all accounts!! Really glad that you are ok, and like you said, that the kids aren't under that mess of a tree limb!!

  8. i think it fell because tricia's kids were climbing all over that sucker when we visited you. i'd blame her if i were you.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, it warms my heart. I hope you have a blessed day. Crafty hugs, Leah
