This awesome arboreal dwelling is the Living the High Life Tree House created by Blue Forest, a British tree house design and construction firm. It’s a luxury family-sized complex featuring two separate tree houses, one for kids and one for their parents. The elevated dwellings are connected by a network of rope bridges which also lead to an adventure play area and an assault course, the latter of which is also accessible via an 80-yard zip line.
It may look rustic, but this is a top-of-the-line tree house. The kids’ house features three medieval towers, and inside one of them a concealed hatch in the upper floor leads to a secret game room containing a plasma TV and video game console. Meanwhile the grown-ups’ treehouse features a conical thatched roof and interior walls made of hand-split oak shingles and cedar tongue-and-groove boards. Inside there’s a kitchen (complete with plenty of wine storage), bathroom, and a large open living area for treetop entertaining. The complex also features accommodations for guests of the family.

I have a GREAT idea. Let’s have kids. But we don’t really LIKE kids. So let’s put them in their own little HOUSE, AWAY from ours so we don’t really have to be bothered with them unless they need to eat something. And let’s make THEIR house only be accessible to OUR house by an 80-foot rope bridge high off the ground in the trees, which will be scary to them, but oh well, they should learn to be brave. And never mind that sometimes kids need their parents during the NIGHT or when it’s raining or snowing. They can learn to figure out how to get to us safely, right? RIGHT?
Yesterday I found some homemade black beans in the freezer. I thawed them out and used them, along with some chopped onions, as filling for enchiladas.
6 of us (3 adults, 2 of which were 20-something males) ate. The cost of the tortillas, sauce, cheese, and accompanying Mexican rice was less than $8 for dinner.
Posted this to the wrong blog last night. Oops!
We nearly did.
It was 500 miles but it couldn’t keep us apart. 7 trips later, we were us.
Thank God it’s
