The laundry is all sorted and one load is in. As soon as my husband gets back from the landfill (that's where we take our trash out here in the country), we will start cutting down the ole cedar tree. He has promised me that he would ignore me if I start crying. He said he hates to even cut it down because he knows I will start, so I told him he was probably right, to just ignore me. Now understand, I'm not a big crier but there's something about plants, trees and animals that REALLY gets to me, always has. I can't help it.
I've got cabbage out to thaw, bacon is in the frig, and I've plenty of potatoes and onions. I think I'm going to make Potatoes Colcannon tonight. Most people associate this dish with St. Patrick's Day and the Irish; but in truth, years ago in Ireland it was prepared around Halloween. Kind of figures, the ingredients are vegetables you would have in the Fall. I like cabbage, so consequently, I like this dish. I'll put the recipe on my Recipe Page and if you'd like to try it, be my guest!
No bread again today - I really miss making and baking it but I'm feeling a wee bit lighter and I have no doubt it's because I am not eating as much bread!!
The Ole Cedar Tree is no more. All that's left is a stump. I'm thinking of filling it with potting soil and putting in some multi-colored moss roses. If it doesn't look good we can always cut it all the way to the ground, but this might be really pretty. I've also thought I might put Roman Chamomile in the stump. We also cut down several, what we call, junk trees. I was almost sick to my stomach but I think it was probably the best thing to be done. At least those trees will not be falling on my gazebo and there should be more sunshine now in that area for the "New Dawn" pink climbing roses I have growing up onto the gazebo. I'm just not real good with change. But, these are changin' thymes aren't they?! I'm just going to have to learn to deal with all the changes going on around me, like it or not!
