Blogging and Trees in the Country...
|A Rainy Fall Day in New Hampshire|
Hi all my sweet blogging sisters. I just wanted to say a couple of brief things to all of you... I have not been blogging as regularly as I would like and I may be overreacting but this logging thing really has made me pretty sad. Everything about fall to me is the beauty that comes with her arrival, which has been greatly diminished for me this year. I am keeping a photographic record of what is being done to the forest and will be sharing all of that once they complete the project - supposedly two weeks.
Many of you have left me sweet comments of concern and support and you have no idea how much that has meant to my sanity and will continue to do so through this two week period. A lot of you have asked didn't I see this coming and the answer is no I didn't.
You see, my property is at the edge of my town line as well as there only being three houses on my road we wield little power over things like this because two of the three houses are rentals with the owner living in Pennsylvania.
It all began with the owner of the third house passing away with the family deciding to sell the house and adjacent land. The new owner kept the house but sold off the land to make a profit obviously on the potential for logging and selling for housing lots.
I could be wrong but I have a gut feeling that the owner of the property I rent is planning on following suite soon and selling the land. I would imagine that this 37 acres could yield quite a few houses. This is partly why I have been so unnerved by this logging thing and also why my DH and I are taking this as a wakeup call and preparing ourselves for the eventual (read, not too distant future) need to move. We are now living on a day to day basis, which yes, sucks! I'm staying positive and thinking if I managed to find this place and all of it's cuteness I will find another if need be.
I love you all for being my blogging sisters and a special hello and thank you to all of my newest blogging sisters! You all ROCK! :D
