What’s Happening In Cottage Country On August 26/2023

Good Morning!

It’s a cloudy morning, starting things off. However, we could see some sunshine as the day progresses.

On the other side of the coin, the weather is getting colder, and like I’ve mentioned before, I have a feeling that this winter might not be so great. I think we’re going to get a lot of snow and really chilly temperatures. It might be worse than the winters we’ve had in the last few years. You can just look at how nature is getting ready for it. The fish aren’t biting like they normally do, the leaves on the trees are changing color a lot, and the animals are growing thicker fur.

Even the birds and squirrels are more active than usual, gathering and storing food. My gut feeling is telling me to get things prepared, which is why we’ve been busy making extra preserves and getting ready in ways we don’t usually. I can also sense it in how my body is reacting. So, for those who get ready ahead of time, things will probably be fine. But for those who don’t, they might end up regretting it.

In the end, whatever will happen, will happen. I’m just giving you a heads-up, and what you choose to do with that information is up to you.

On a different topic, my wife and I decided to head into town yesterday because the grapes near our old farm are ripe. My wife wanted to get some Concord grapes to make jelly for the winter. While we were there, we not only got the grapes but also picked up a bunch of other items that we can store away for the winter. My wife always ensures that we have enough supplies to manage on our own if necessary. It’s all about being self-sufficient and not relying on anyone or anything else. We’ve always lived this way and have no plans to change our approach now. Our instincts have served us well over the years.

I think many people could benefit from learning these skills instead of depending so much on authorities. These so-called figures often want you to rely on them, giving them control over what you eat, do, see, read, or hear. Unfortunately, they’ve been quite successful in achieving this.

Anyway, after we gathered what we needed, we had lunch in our car while observing people, and then we headed back home, appreciating the beauty of nature along the way. It was truly a wonderful day.

With that, I am off for a bowl of cereal and will then see what the day has in store.

Have a great day. GW
