News For Port Loring
Not to much to report around town, things real quite quiet actually. The weather hasn’t been the greatest lately neither, that doesn’t help ones getting out. For myself I am slowly getting things done around the house here. Still got to till my garden and plant my garlic. Old back is playing games with me though with the wet cold damp weather. But this to shall pass. I will say this though; the wood heat sure is pleasant for aches and pains as being so dry. Not complaining mind ya, still can’t wait to get out of bed each morning. Also ordered another four cords of firewood. I have around 16 cords of nice dry stuff piled high in the basement, but something is telling me we might just get a longer winter this year. The more I study nature the more she is telling me that maybe a touch more snow and some colder weather is heading our way. One item my old grandfather told me years ago is that if the cedars loose more leaves than usual it’s a good sign of lots of snow and ours here around the house have lost over half. Reason being the leaves would hold the snow and break their branches. Less weight lest damage. Makes sense to me and pretty smart on their part. Time will tell. Well have a great day my friends, turmeric tea time here and see what the day has to offer.
