Up in the Air

Throughout the winter, the winds blow and the branches on the fir, maple, and alder trees, especially, break off and fall all about us.  It's natural pruning for tall trees, but it leaves a mess on the ground.  Today, we gathered and burned them all.  That's usually an all day activity, but this winter has been a little less generous with its wind and thus we have somewhat fewer branches to get rid of, so it didn't take all day.

Because of that, we also spent a little time helping a friend trim his goats' hooves.  That's what life is like in Point Roberts at this time of year: a little goat nail trimming, a little outdoor fire, and after a while, a little nap.
