What’s Happening In Cottage Country On August 4/2023

Good Morning!

Actually, not much is happening these days in cottage country. But you never know it could change being the that August is here, along with it closing in on Fall which arrives this year on September 23.

Highway 522, well, it isn’t what it used to be, not by a long shot. Back in the day, it was a quiet little road, not much traffic to speak of. But truth be told, I don’t mind it staying that way. My lovely wife and I came to these parts over 20 years ago ’cause we wanted some space, some elbow room. And this place gave us just that.

Life’s been a simple one for my wife and I, we’ve seen things change, folks come and go, but we have learned to roll with the punches. That’s how it’s always been for us – adaptin’ to whatever comes our way.

Progress, they call it. Can’t stop it, no matter how much I might wish to. The world keeps movin’ forward, and you have to move with it. I might be an old-timer, but I ain’t stuck in the past. Change is a part of life, and I’ve learned to accept it. So, as the world changes around me, I’ll just keep on doin’ what I do best – tendin’ to my land, watchin’ the seasons change, and cherishin’ the memories of quieter times on Highway 522.

Bug Report: All is good these days other than a few pesky mosquitoes. But I can live with them.

On another note, I worked outside most of the day with my wife getting the mowing out of the way for another week. Sure looks nice when all said and done. Better than any park there is out there today, where millions are spent on keeping it that way. For most parts, I like nature the way she is, but I do like unveiling it occasionally so to speak, showing how beautiful it really is/or can be. After we got the mowing done the rain moved in giving everything a much-needed drink. Enough to fill my rain barrel, too, which I will use in the coming days to water the new vegetables I just planted. You can never have enough fresh rain water on hand living in this neck of the woods. It also comes in handy to flush the toilet when the power goes out.

With that, I am off for some home-made waffles my wife is preparing for me with some of Mike Clappertons Maple Syrup. After that, I will see what mischief I can get into. At least that is what my little woman keeps on tellin’ me.

Have a great day, make it a great day! GW
