A Tree Is A Tree Is A Tree?

April 25, 2010

Good morning, even if it is a bit cloudy right now. On my way home from work this morning, I stopped to get a McDonald's breakfast for myself and Moo. I only do this once in a great while, so it's a treat. Tootsie likes it too, because I share my breakfast with her. And she deserves it. She is such a treat to come home to.

Let me ask you a question. When you look at trees, what do you see? I guess your answer would have a lot to do with your age. When I was younger, I saw what a lot of you see. Trees, large and small, green, brown trunks (mostly), some flowering. Then along comes that magickal age of 60. Now you start noticing how truly beautiful these trees really are.

By 70, you're in awe of the number of colors that is in these same trees. On just one street, the colors of the leaves range from hundreds of shades of green, yellow and white, russet, mahogany, brown, red, auburn, plus the whites, pinks, rose and yellow of the flowered trees. And this is Spring time, not Autumn!

Now where did all of this come from? Actually, it was right there all along, but it took a bit of maturing on our part to actually see all of it. Maybe that's part of why they call these years "Golden." Before it's time for us to journey on, we have one more chance to take notice of the beauty that is around us, and that we have taken for granted most of our lives. So go out and take a good look at the trees near you. They really are magnificent.

I have a couple of photos to share that I took this morning on my way home. This tree is just up the street from my house. It's absolutely gorgeous!!!

And here is a close up of this magnificent beauty.
Now on to my dancing attempt. Yestrerday, I did do a little bit of two-stepping with a speck of fox trot thrown in. Well, let me tell you. This was not my brightest moment. I thought that every part of me already ached a bit, but I was wrong. The dancing brought out even more hurts. And on top of that, it took my breath away!!

And Crookness, you are absolutely right! All the dancing in the world won't do anything for my face. I watch all the ads for the face lifts and the boob lifts, and I wonder what the point is. After all the work is done, and you look ten or fifteen years younger, you still have old arms and hands.
Yeesh!!

Enough of my gabbing. I posted your April Day 25 link earlier this morning. It's just below this post. And I have another QP freebie for you. This one also matches the "Spring Sunshine" kit. Now I'm off to give Tootsie her meds, and then maybe catch a nap. Tonight is another work night. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.
