Tree Climbing

Ah, I love climbing the tree in my backyard.
I've been wanting to build a tree house in the tree in my backyard for quite a while now, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Apparently there are a myriad of ways to build your tree house. You can suspend it from wires or attach it to the tree directly, you can suspend it between two trees, you can connect it to one tree and suspend it from the other. You can have it entirely independent from the tree even, but that doesn't seem like very much fun. Mostly I just want a tree house to sit and read in, nothing big, probably just a platform to sit on with a little railing. Of course I still think of building one like this. Although not that big, of course. *wink*
There is one branch I climb up to now that is almost level, so it's quite comfy to sit in. It's still not very nice to read sitting on it though. (I was Wicked up there yesterday.)
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures I took today from my viewpoint in the tree.

There's nothing quite like sitting in a tree when the wind is blowing and you rock back and forth a bit.
That's all I wanted to say today,

I definitely know the feeling. I was sitting in my tree last night, feeling the wind blow me back and forth and thinking the same thing.

I can't climb my trees anymore... too big. :( It saddens me.

I wish I could climb a tree again, but the fire department has threatened to leave me up there if I call them to rescue me again. ;)
