Reusable Living Christmas Trees and Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
Thank you for reading this blog, now in it's new location at concretegardener.com . I thought it would be a good incentive to write if I got rid of the .blogspot. [A side note, if you buy a domain name be sure to buy the privacy option, otherwise your name and address become public domain. Learned from my husband right after I bought concretegardener.]
I'm really happy to have people reading. I'm hoping that writing will help me to express myself better, and learn from readers, too. I'm open to many different directions. One thing I've been thinking about is the "in-between" phase that people in new countries face. I recently graduated but I am not eligible to officially work for a few months. It's a scary thing-- how do I spend my time if the financial incentive (short term and long term) is removed?
Also, I would like to point you to the Christmas tree above and to the right. It was $7.00 at Trader Joe's and I am thinking of keeping it my whole life, or Eugene's whole life, depending on who lives longer. Over a 75 year lifespan, we will save hundreds, thousands, millions maybe [exact figure may vary] on Christmas trees, and we will gradually become deeply attached to our growing tree, who we imaginatively named Christmas Tree. If we move, we may need interim tree-sitting support. If you're interested, there are left over living trees floating around Boston and other US cities-- get one now and you can avoid cutting down a tree next year.
Happy New Year!
