What’s Happening In Cottage Country On August 6/2023

Good Morning!

It looks like another really nice day is shaping up for us here in Cottage Country. The sun is shinning with hardly a cloud in the sky. You know you’re in the north when the sky is blue as can be and the air is so fresh it feels energizing, with every breath you take. The temperatures also have been nice for sleeping the past few days with the windows open. Nothing is nicer to lay in bed, feeling the gentle breezes flowing through the house. I am sure going to miss it when the real cold arrives. But it makes you appreciate what you have at the moment.

Highway 522 is still very quiet these days. However, we have had a few folks drop by our small gift shop picking up a few items of choice. And in doing so we made some more fine friends. One couple that originated from Italy, just like my wife, and I’s parents, and with roots in Germany too, we chatted to for over an hour or so. It was an incredible experience to exchange stories about our shared cultural backgrounds, reminisce about the customs and traditions of our ancestors’ homelands, and bond over our love for Italian and German cuisine. The conversation felt like reconnecting with long-lost family, and it further strengthened our pride in our heritage. In short, it made our day.

Bug Report: Not much to talk about these days, all is good. Other than a group of busy Bumble Bees gracefully carrying out their daily tasks. Which are sure nice to watch. They have a lot to offer if you take the time to watch them.

On another note, my wife and I have kept busy, her doing up preserves for winter with me getting the outside things done up that I haven’t been able to do for the past few years. It sure is nice to be able to move around. Things if let go sure have a way of getting out of hand. But I pretty well have everything back to normal.

Today I will finish working on a new Bird Feeder I have in mind. I started it yesterday but got side tracked by folks visiting our gift shop and a few other things. Life is a mystery, that’s for sure, I never know what a day might bring. I start off in one direction and end up doing something totally different. But I like it that way, as it keeps life interesting.

With that, I am off for a bagel with some molasses brown sugar, with cinnamon this morning, that my lovely wife is making for me. Which should give me enough energy to get through the day.’

Have a great day. GW
