A lot was accomplished yesterday.
Most of woods surrounding cottage were bush hogged.
and it looks beautiful. Several small dead trees were pushed over
and as always I get excited about rich woods dirt. Creating no new gardens
but may put some in my small vegetable garden and area in flower garden where
wanter wants to stand when it is raining.
Helper put the lawn tractor in gear for me (torn muscle in right arm and doing this is
to difficult for me) and I cut for 2 hours. Thoughts of trading this tractor with
very few hours on it for one that you start automatically by pushing a button. Never thought
of this when it was purchased as for 50 years never a problem with starting one by putting
the blades in gear. Just a thought as I really do not need to be on this tractor as often
as in the past.
Mosquito's are really bad at this time.. I had on jeans and a long sleeve shirt and could
still feel them trying to attack me. The operator of the tractor had on a short
sleeve shirt and shorts and I shake my head. My neighbor came riding by on her mower
and had on shorts and a tank top and she is my age :) This one is overweight and has a pace maker
and the thought surfaces that I do not have this going on.
Medication is repeatedly being put on two areas that may be poison ivy. With left eye
having cataract surgery next Monday I cannot go on a dose pack at this time.
Most of the time I have to do this. Very familiar with poison ivy and even though
I am careful it happens. Maybe from Miss Callie as I pet her a lot and she loves
running in the woods.
Worker will have to return because it was too wet at the back of my property
to cut the high grass.
Contentment is my constant companion when work and cleaning is in progress on this land.
Love this property with a passion and so many thoughts go through
my mind of the future. When it was first purchased there was twice the amount that
I now tend too. Two moves, some land sold and thoughts I would never return But the acres I tend now are surrounded by the rest is as much as I can take care of. Always wished there was someone that would love these woods like I do. My children and grandchildren love to visit, eat, sit on porch and walk in the woods - but the city is where they work and like what it offers.
Inside at noon and after the cornbread was made for lunch I made a
French Coconut Pie.
For some reason kept craving coconut.

and my thoughts are my life does not sound very interesting
but I could not be happier or at peace when I am outside with nature.
Just wish my body would keep up with my mind.
The answer to much at this moment is less grooming and acceptance of natures growth
and that I can no longer do what I have in the past years - also a little more help.
