So Who Are These People

I rarely check statistics on my journal and just looked.

Septmber - 4445 people read my words over the years - ancient one in the woods impressed :)

Yesterday - 135

Today by 5:00 - 158

Wish they would write a few words, now this morning 2 new people that have never commented before.   So it seems a lot of people know a lot about the lifestyle of an ancient one
who lives by the edge of the woods :)

Just returned from market, post office and drove down the street where I created a home in
the Historical section of Springfield.   The prettiest street, after being their 2 years as an
experiment put the home on the market thinking if it sold I would relocate to Nashville
near my 3 children.    Oh my it sold in 2 weeks, so onward I went going to the big city where I created another home.  After 2 years the recession set in, my son sold his home and left for Thailand.
I put this one on the market to once again (the third time returning to my country land and built
my cottage at the edge of the woods. This home because of beginning of recession I lost quite a bit.  Now 9 years later and a cane in hand I vow never to leave this land again....
and plan for my ashes to be spread on my garden - when the time arrives.  So whoever resides
here will have me for company :)

A birthday on Monday, girls will arrive and I took a roast out of freezer and have fresh vegetables.
Do not want a meal in a restaurant :)

Today spotted a small Lemon cake, I love Lemon and will enjoy today.   In a minute
think just toasted cheese sandwich with mixed greens and tomato plants that provide the tiny
tomato's are loaded, nothing else lived :)
Miss family, across the ocean and in other states.  Beautiful cards arrived and know I am loved.
Just their precense means so much
but it will happen at the right time.

Rain expected to arrive today and for next 3 days.

Birthday blessings, friend!
Happy to hear you'll have good company on your special day.
That day (Monday), I'll be accompanying a friend to several medical tests spread out over better part of the day. I will reschedule the standing app't. I have with another friend on Monday afternoons when we play piano duets together. Practice is essential now that we've decided to host friends at a late October event - Duets & Dessert...
Have a pleasant rest of the weekend and Eat Cake ♥

Have followed you for many years and always enjoy your writings, love of family, nature and your land. You can make a lovely meal out of few ingredients and always seem to work hard to keep a good attitude in spite of your health concerns. Thank you for sharing your journey with us! I am from southern Indiana but now live in Austin Texas and take care of my 3 1/2 and 5 year old grandsons while their folks work! I am a retired nurse.

Rita and Bobby, thank you so much for telling me about yourselves.
Bobbie, we have much in common concerning our bodies, but I am much older then you
and did not start until my 70's, so I have that blessing
but my issues are beginning to really bother me, frightening me, seems I am not the brave one at the moment.
I loved Balisha, she kept in touch with me, sent me flower seeds and books.
God Bless her,
Please write me anytime - Ernetine
