It has been a much better week, then past couple. The roof was placed on the garage and is being placed as I type this brief for my blog post for the week. Stressful, absolutely, working out the way it must, absolutely and are we pleased, yes we are!
Don Crouch and his team had their hands full when they arrived to try and come up with game plan on taking down a huge tree that had banged our home. It was overwhelming for his crew and for us, but all prevailed. The clean up will continue next week.
In the mean time Daryl Monroe and his roofing crew are outstanding as well. I have to applaud all of them for a job well done.
Next my Chiropractic treatment with Dr. Lido Petrucci in Oldham County. I had my 8th treatment on Friday and I have hours of ease before going into battle once again, which is far better than I have had in nearly 8 months. Healed, no, not yet, but I have faith. Some good waves of relief however has assuredly come and I am hoping and praying for total healing of this which has been a "Pain in the Neck" excuse the pun and the overload of electrical currents running down my arm for going on 8 months. I really think that my friend Jeff Davis deserves special credit as well for making the call to encourage me to give this treatment a try. The treatment is called Rapid Release Technique, along with decompression, laser heat treatments and mechanical adjustments, all working for the good to help ease this situation. The team at this office is wonderful too~
The entry image is one of a few horses that I have created in the past, and I inverted the colours just for fun. Each horse is created, using a plastic horse form and then I select 3 upholstery fabrics, for each horse. Then small strips of fabric are cut and placed on the form, taking many days to create each one. I then use a glitter thread and wind around the figure. These have been sold and sent to many areas far and near.
Below are American Kestrels in flight over L'esprit, near where we live~

I will be linking up with Judith for:
Our home, taken from the lane and you can see the large tree leaning against the house from here~
All of the trunks still remain, but will be taken out after a few days of dry weather next week. I lopped all of the branches from every fallen tree, and drug them for pick up so that they could be chipped and removed. It took me 5 hours, but I felt I needed to be of some help to these hard workers and I think they were happily surprised by my efforts~
We now can view more sky and the first bird that I saw, after the trees came down, was one of the 3 recently fledged Red-Shouldered Hawks...Sweet~
The dogs needed bathing and we needed a break from all of the stress and so into the big city we all went~
My precious friends know how much I adore birds and also birdhouses. Theresa got me the shell birdhouse on left and Linda got me the little aqua birdhouse on the right~
The small front yard was not touched by all of the recent occurrences on the property and so I thought to share this little bit of peacefulness, and pass it along to you for a Happy weekend and week ahead, be well, be blessed~
