today was a delightful day.
Dawn not quite 50 degrees
and temptation resisted all day to turn on heat.
At this time
it is 70 in the cottage.
Has been a long time since I could spend the day outside.
It was such a joy.
Careful was I and so thankful.
Weeded, trimmed, dead headed and walked a little ways in the woods.
With some recent showers
everything is still a beautiful green.
Yesterday, woods were bush hogged. Doing this every Spring and Fall.
Surroundings look like a park except for soon to be cut dried corn field in front.
I will miss it until something is once again planted.
Wish it would be Winter wheat as the fields would have the appearance of a lawn.
If it is Soybeans then I will look at corn stubble's all Winter
which the deer and squirrels will like.
Pruned pear tree that was planted last year. Last year it surprised me with a dozen pears.
Did not think it had any this year but I saw 2.
Waiting for a sack full to make the over 100 year old pear preserve recipe I have that
my mother gave me years ago.
Pear preserves are my favorite
would delight so
in a pear - the second one half rotten and thrown away :)
Look forward to my oldest daughter being with me for a short stay
this weekend (wish it were longer) but she will return next month
for what they call a special day.
My special grandson and son in law
will pick her up.
Will be so pleased to see them....
At the moment
Life is so Good....
