Oh how I will miss Habitat Home!
But a decision needed to be made...stay and love our new grandchild from afar or move and take along fond memories of Habitat Home. We have chosen to move closer to family. We will start a new chapter in our lives (and perhaps a new blog?) in Snohomish Washington.
What a great blessing it has been to create Habitat Home.
Wishing the new owners much happiness in their new home.

Most dead trees at Habitat Home are left standing till they fall. So, we often have to spend a morning or afternoon cleaning up a dead fallen tree that happens to fall across a path. The job is made easier with a chain saw and the decision to leave most fallen wood on the ground close to where it fell (but off the path). The discussion this morning was whether to leave the fallen logs along the bank or move them farther from the river. We decided to leave them along the river bank as we noticed more vegetative growth along banks with fallen logs than those without woody debris. The river path at Habitat Home is shown below. Before and after our morning's workout. Maybe the remainder of the dead tree will just fall towards the river next time.
