Trees!

Here’s a comment I left a few days ago on Osyth’s blog, Half Baked in Paradise.

Gosh… I’ve just read this again! I hope my children will say such pleasing things about me when I go… for I love trees as well!
I call trees “God’s Fingerprints”… each different, each unique… each beautiful, whatever species they may be!
One day… when I grow up, I want to live in a comfortable wooden cabin in a woodland… near the sea… oh, how I dream! Oh, I would love to build the cabin, from the abundance of the surrounding woodland! With love and care, and appreciation for the trees that allowed me to create a home…
OH… how I dream!

As I write this I’m reminded of reality. We face uncertainty… we’ve been given notice by our landlords. Their son wants the house so we have to move on. Easy, some may say. No… I’m still out of work… rental properties are almost like chicken’s teeth and because of that they don’t come in the below budget range. However, my words above reminded me of a walk in a Wicklow wood… and of my words when I later showed my good lady the photos…

“Now there’s a spot where I could build us a log cabin…”

    Pragtige fotos.Dit laat my altyd kalmer voel om naby die natuur te wees. Sterkte met die huissoekery. Ons gaan heelwaarskynlik ook die einde van die jaar trek, nader aan die beskawing, want my man se gesondheid is gaandeweg besig om uiteruit te gaan. Ek sal spyt wees om “Paradys” agter te laat.

      Dankie… ja, ek kan maklik ‘n bos kluisenaar word! (Bergie???)

      Jammer om the hoor dat julle “Paradys” moet verlaat. Een ding is seker… julle het tenminste die plesier gahad om paradys te proe!! Geniet dit terwyl julle kan!!

    Sterkte AJ. Met jul positiewe gesindheid en geloof gaan jul ook hierdeur kom. Kom laai gerus dikwels hier af, dat ons kan weet hoe dit gaan met die huissoek en trekkery.

    Time to relocate maybe? A change of scenery? Different job prospects?

    Best of luck 🍀

      Your wise words always cheer me up! Yes, it is time to relocate. We have been looking at the option of going to Co Wicklow, where the photos were taken. Mu good lady is a Brit, so I’ve also been applying for roles in the UK. A few in your general area as well!

      Thanks… yes, it’s not the end! 😉
