Every year we go to the same local tree farm. On the way there we pick up a few bales of hay for Indy and Hayden at a beautiful horse farm nearby. It feels so nice to be this close to so many local farms of different variety, to have these people as 'neighbors'. The rhythm of these actions feels better and better every year. Last year we were getting some of our very first bales of hay for our new boys and our foster boy. The smell of the car filled with 2nd cut hay and a fresh tree on top is almost overwhelmingly good.
We had a wee bit of drama this year during our 'tree hunt'. Just as we started driving away Greg's hands and arms felt like they were on fire and he all of a sudden found himself spotted with hives. When we got home, he washed his hands and it went away in an hour or so but it was weird. Has that happened to any of you before? We'll have to proceed with caution while decorating this year I guess. I didn't even feel like we should bring the tree in but Greg insisted. So there it is, waiting to be decorated today. I feel like doing something different with our tree this year but I am not sure if I have everyone on board yet. I'll be sure to post though if we do. I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend. ooxx Spidey
