today trees are being brought in. there are all kinds of big-wheelie, back-hoe-y, front-loader-y types of vehicles. big engines revving. chains swaying. and lots of very urgent yelling in spanish and it. is. making. my. heart. start. and. stop. wheels are spinning in the backyard mud. cranes are swinging big metal hookish types of things. engines continue to roar and rev and there is intermittent yelling in a language i don't quite understand. i may not understand the words, but i understand the tone. and it's making me jump out of my skin.
