“October 19/2023 Escapes: A Closer Look at Life in & Around Our Cottage Country Home”

Good Morning!

It’s a cloudy morning here in Cottage Country, and we could see a shower or two throughout the day. But remember, whether it’s cloudy or clear, a day is what you make of it, just like a country song – you’re the star of your own show.

Highway 522 is slowing down these days. Most of our hunters are either sleeping in or sitting in the bush. It’s a real head-scratcher, that’s for sure!

On another note, I didn’t do all that much yesterday with it being wet and cool outside. I don’t relish the cold all the much anymore, or the dampness for that matter. I did, however, write up a story for my newspaper columns. You might say that a little productivity, even on them lazy, wet days, keeps the wheels turnin’ in this here life of mine.

Today I am thinking I will get some exercise and plant my garlic for next year. But I never really know – you start with the best-laid plans, and Mother Nature, or maybe just my own haphazard ways, leads you down a different road. Which truth be told is what life is all about. And you know … I kind of like it that way.

So with that I am off for a bowl of porridge this morning that my lovely wife is making for me and will then see what develops after that. And maybe I will have another cup of hot chocolate like I did yesterday. I might even add a marshmallow to it as my sister Barb does. She says it is pretty tasty.
