I had been out in the yard moments before, watching the trees move in the wind. When a branch cracked and fell, I thought it was time to get inside. Was I ever right! I heard and then saw this tree split and fall. (You can see a short video in this Behind the Scenes) Though we lsot cable and internet for a couple of days I am so thankful no one was hurt and that the tree fell towards yards, not homes.
Another one down for the Those Books project/adventure/thingy with finishing The Wind in the Willows, and it was a delightful read. I think going for a kids book when I'm not sure what to read next is a tactic I will come back it. Other than being a bit conformist, it was a joyful read with lots of wild adventures - including Mr. Toad and his Wild Ride ;) !
Yesterday was another crazy day, cleaning the house for our 12th showing and going out to see the new X-Men movie after going to Chapters and getting to buy Laura Calder's cookbook for only $10! It was awesome but I am totally burned out.
