But we generally don't like changes do we? Ones thrust upon us, that we have no control over? So it was last week at my beloved trail. There was a new law passed mandating that everything within the easement area had to be razed to the ground. Pretty sure the guys contracted to do the work were less upset about the devastation this meant to our woods than us local trail lovers though. In fact, it seems like they were sort of giant assholes about it, and exceeded their boundaries in many spots.
Perhaps incongruously, I have been coveting (secretly) a trail work buddy's small chainsaw I called ~the Barbie chainsaw~. I sort of want one, and want to learn how to safely use one so I can help more when trees go down at the trail, and also for all the fallen trees on our property that I could turn into firewood.
Here's a cool pic of Tina someone took last week at the night race at the trail. They're done for the year now. Some of you may remember last year I felt compelled to try racing in the dark. Not this year. Never say never, but am just not ~racy~ right now. Still fun to go help out and hang out at the bonfire & watch etc.
Lastly, because I know, every facet of my life IS endlessly intriguing--- I'm doing a bunch of experiments trying to figure out a way to have my hair work out so it is curly (because there is no practical way to fight this without a full time staff of professionals apparently), NOT frizzy, and doesn't take an hour. Actually I'm trying to get time spent messing with my hair down to about 5 minutes a day. Here's me waking up in the morning (cute I know, no make-up-- ~the horror~) trying for no effort "day 2" hair.
