Wednesday morning.

I don't seem to have much to write about here on a daily basis. My life seems rather boring compared to other bloggers. Up before daylight, put coffee on, feed cats, light fire in stove, let chickens out at daybreak, fill bird feeders, clean house, do things that need doing outside. Roger has been away for a week now, two more to go. My daughter came for a few days last Thursday and stayed until Monday past. As always it was wonderful to have her here. We didn't accomplish all the things we had planned. She spent a lot of time upgrading my computer. A friend, who grows these giant Pumpkins, brought me one on the weekend. I told him to bring the smallest one he had. As it was, he had to strap it onto his body with this carry thingy. I told him to put it down near the gate as I couldn't think where I wanted it at the time. Later, my daughter suggested I put it on the small front deck so that it could be seen from the road when lit. The next morning I went out and rolled it across the lawn and managed to get it to the bottom of the steps. Today, if it ever stops raining I will try to get it up the four steps to the deck. Don't think I will manage it though. I daresay I will have to call on "a Man" to do the job. It's been raining here for days. Everything is soaked outside, however, I can hear the stream rushing and when I walk over besides it I feel I am in another world. So quiet except for the sound of the water. I lean up against one of the big trees and close my eyes, it's magical.

Old Crow,Your life is anything but boring.I keep an eye on your blog regularly.All the adventures you describe warm my heart.I am a friend of your daughters,I live in a big crazy city thats getting bigger by the day.My only escape from all the insanity is to walk in a nearby park, along the river.At first it was just to give the dog a run and exercise,but iv'e come to realize that's it's the small wonders that is luring me there 2 or 3 times a day.I look for the owls, deer,birds,beaver or any new addition to this lovely space.I know how the sound of the nearby brook settles us even on the cold rainy days.It is a peaceful and humbling place where you live.Bloggers that are energized by all the mayhem around this world,have never been to see the beauty of Eastport.Hope your honey comes home soon- Jeannie

I don't know about that Pete, lol. Hey Jeannie, it is a good place for the soul here. You must try to come here in the summer when the gardens are all in bloom. It's beautiful.
