2009 – Day 1

Welcome to 2009! I’m hoping to use the new site layout to post more pics this year. To start the year, some outdoor shots.

New Year’s Eve brought some pretty high winds in this area, and we lost a tree as a result.

It looks like it was starting to rot, which is probably why this one came down:

So, more to split and eventually burn, along with the rest of the big Oak that we had taken down this year (it was dead):

Overall though, the house is looking OK.  Needs some of the usual TLC — eventually we’ll replace the siding.
