I check the calendar regularly. Below it sits the “to do” list, which even in semi retirement, I can’t seem to let go of. Today, for some reason, my eyes strayed to the words beside the pictures on the calendar.Continue reading “Good things will happen”
Time rushes madly on
Seconds tumble by
As the leaves rustle
Harvest beckons us all
Moon glows amber
Each day I do take time to stop and appreciate all that I have and am. Challenges continue to arise and Covid continues to throw its weight around in our area so we are keeping a low profile. I won’t say it’s a quiet life as harvest, teaching and family commitments have kept me busy. Blogging time has been very minimal and I am behind in reading other blog posts as well.
Hope all is well in your worlds. I hope to be back more regularly one of these fine days.
If I had been on the ball last night I would have linked this to the #Sundaystills hosted by Terri again over at https://secondwindleisure.com/2021/09/26/sunday-stills-signs-of-autumn-spring/. Better late than never I guess!

We had our first family supper last weekend. It was just as wonderful as one can imagine. The noise and motion that comes with 7 large dogs, 6 adults and 2 littles. It was so wonderful and yet, sadly, bittersweet.Continue reading “Bittersweet supper”
As the mercury (well ok so we don’t use mercury any more but it sounds good) rises the thoughts swirl and toss around in the hot air.Continue reading “The Mercury”
The names roll into my head long before the road sign shows what town is next. The new shingles here or the added grain bins there stand out in my mind. I’ve been on this same trip literally dozens of times. But not since the pandemic and that in itself is what makes it feel a bit like a foreign world.Continue reading “Covid in the Rearview mirror”
I was going to skip this last week for a large number of reasons (and indeed may be already too late to link up) with the Sunday stills theme of the great outdoo
But…this week the theme was front and center at Nan’s house. I had enrolled my “littles” in at Timbernook for a session called “Little Wild Ones”. This international outdoor school has a location literally right across the road from me; 1.5 km down a big hill. Our outdoor adventure included getting there.Continue reading “#Sundaystills Right out My Door”
