August 18, 2018 – I’m 40!

Ack! I sure as heck do not feel old enough to be 40, but according to the calendar, I am! I guess 8-18-18 was a good day to venture over the hill. My family is way too good to me and they spoiled me rotten.

For the last two years, we have been growing apple trees in pots, and in the front yard of our house was an empty brick ring. Whatever had been planted there had not survived, and it seemed to me the perfect location for a tree. So on my 40th birthday, we planted one of our trees. For the first time in 8 years, we did something permanent. I guess one could say we put down roots, in more ways than one. The kids’ hand-print stones from 2006 even have a new home around the base of the tree. Our little tree seems to like his new home and is doing great. Maybe next year we may even see an apple or two. 🙂
