free trees are outside!

So I went for a run yesterday. And during my run, not one, but TWO people got free tree parts! I know! There are trees everywhere! They just sit there! No price tags or anything!

I ran in the woods and found a small "tree" on the ground. It's part of the pine tree family. I don't know exactly what kind it is, but I'm calling it an awesome fir.

It was a dangerous trip. Not one, not two, but THREE dogs barked at me while I was outside! That's, like, dangerous! One of the dogs was even on a leash! Scary!

But! I also saw some guy pulling a branch off a tree! Not a connected branch. One that broke off and was just hanging there. He ALSO sees that free tree-stuffs are everywhere!

We are smart shoppers.

I brought my 7-inches of awesome fir home and put it in a pot with some potting soil. I also bought some Miracle Gro sticks to put into it. I hope that keeps it alive. I put all 20 in there, so that should help.

I will decorate it with star wars ornaments, popcorn and lights.

I will put it on a high shelf so Santa can pile presents up under it. Because that is still technically under the tree!

I'm off to decorate my branch.

Enjoy Everything.

it's been six months since my last post session

I just thought you should know that. It has nothing to do with anything. Life just happens. Like, really happens. No, I don't think you get it. REALLY happens. know?

Yeah. You get it. I knew you would. You're so smart. Smarter than the smartest smart-smart ever. Smarter than a smart car. Which is pretty smart in most countries.

Except Uruguay. And Utah. Whether or not those are countries, I do not know. Whether or not they should be considered countries, I do know. They should. That makes me sounds smart. Like a car.

So, with no real transition into my original topic, I saw a christmas peacock! And I'm not talking about the Ellen Page movie or the Katy Perry song.

Nope. A christmas peacock that just likes to light up at night for the holidays!

Actually, I don't know if it was for christmas or one of the other winter solstice holidays, but it WAS a peacock!

First of all, I think it's adorable that peacock babies are called "peachicks." And second of all, I like plumage. Not only is it fun to say, but fun to have!

And THIRD of all, plumage is especially awesome when it has lights on it!

Don't worry, the holiday peacock is not feral like the ones in Miami. This peacock brings presents to good little peachicks. Like ninjas swords and airhogs and lego bricks in the shape of a death star.

You know, the usual stuff that peachicks ask peasanta for.

And I know you know that because you're so smart! Remember? I said it earlier. Did you forget that part already? That's understandable. I get distracted by plumage, too.

Especially the light up kind!

I'm off to decorate my peacock.

Enjoy Everything.
