But my husband has been creative in a different way. He's building a deck! I think that's just pretty amazing. He's never done one before, but he has experience from when he was young...his father is a person who's always been good with a hammer and saw. D has been an intellectual who loves to read (and, unlike me, actually retains most of what he reads), but now, as he says, he is 'channeling' his father! And all to our benefit! I'm so impressed with what he's done and how quickly it's come together. Wow.
While I'm at it, here's a picture of the beautiful American Elm in our backyard. You can't really tell how huge it is, but I still like the picture.
