Just came inside,4 bird feeders filled 1/3 as it is really high in price and cannot keep the squirrels
away in the evening. Small bucket of grass seed is spread, pick up some sticks and add to fire pit.
I am very careful as I vow not to fall but then the thought if I ever fall would rather it be at this
special home among all that was planted almost 8 years ago and I will not call anyone
will just lay there among my plants and trees.
Still beauty surrounds me and I am pleased but so much not the way it has been in the past. A lifetime of pleasure working
outside, planting, weeding, pruning and guess dirt is in my veins and my small lawn tractor
sits and 2 years ago on a day like this I would be on it, clearing paths, throwing limbs out of the
way and just riding through the woods.
Young man who helps me - when he wants to has not been here for 2 weeks but know soon he
will want some spending money and will arrive and I will be outside with him actively pointing
at what I want him to do...
My heart wants to walk in the woods but the mind says "not a good idea" the paths
that I made years ago, kept clear are now overgrown and many many limbs covering them.
I vow I will walk them again, clean them up some when someone will walk with me.
When my children and grandchildren visit for some reason they do not love the woods like I do
they walk down my long gravel drive and on the country road.
The small garden by my porch has a special plant that needs some trimming or it will cover the screen.
Noticed in this small area a few plants missing and all of a sudden a big rabbit ran behind
some plants. Hopefully Callie does not notice and a thought that maybe she (the rabbit) is going to have
Area in the front the same plant is beautiful and not going to trim and let it go where it wants too.
for lunch, yesterday bought some corn beef, Munster cheese, special bread and will make a sandwich.
