Inauguration Day

We woke up and watched the inauguration of our new president this morning.  While they went to their "luncheon", we fed our animals and then planted our Christmas tree on the border of our orchard.  We buried the birds that died with the bad weather next to the tree as a memorial and as nutrients for the tree.

Then I tagged the tree.  I am hoping that as years go by, we can reflect on this day and on the positive changes that occurred since today.
Now we will watch some of the parade before we do some orchard pruning- life will go on.

Great blog you have here. I was invited by some American friends to a "Bye Bye Bush" party, she made some W cookies with the thought of "eat today - flush tomorrow" which I just thought so damned appropriate...

Thanks for the compliment on the blog. Your "Bye Bye Bush" party and W cookies sound very appropriate.
