“October 20/2023 Escapes: A Closer Look at Life Around Our Cottage Country Home”

Good Morning!

It’s a bit cloudy this morning, but there are a few blue patches trying to show themselves amongst all them clouds. So I suspect we will see some sunshine as the day progresses. Which I am looking forward too as my wife and I are wanting to do some front porch sittin’.

Highway 522 is quiet, which is normal for this time of year.

On another note, my wife and I did do some outside work yesterday. Starting the day off, I brought out my rototiller and tilled up a spot more than what it was; we then both got busy planting our garlic. I have to tell you it gave us a good feeling knowing that we will have an abundant supply next summer. Garlic is one of the best vegetables one can eat, especially when it comes to staying healthy. Also for those that doesn’t know this, it is also a very strong antibiotic and can fix a lot of ailments like strep throat along with other things. It can even ward off bad energy that might be lurking outside your doors, if you’re into that kind of thing. Ha ha.

After we had that planted, I decided to move a couple plants that didn’t like where they were growing, one being a red current bush. So we will see what happens next year. I had a talk to it while I was planting it, telling it had better get to growing and producing some berries. At any rate, Nature has a way of doing things, but I do try and help it out when I can.

Once that was done, we brought over some pieces of pine that I had in the bush using my old mower and trailer. I thought it would make things easier come winter when the snow is blowing and up around your ears. It will save me having to carry it by hand from the bush to my woodworking shop.

Afterward, I spent some time on my computer setting up things, so I can create videos about natural and herbal remedies, farming methods, gardening, woodworking, and other things I’ve learned over the years, including what’s happening daily around our home. Once I get the hang of it, I’ll start posting these videos on YouTube for those who are interested. If you have a moment, I’d like to hear your thoughts on this and if you would be interested in watching how I go about doing things.

With that tidbit of information lingering in your thoughts, I’m heading off to enjoy an English muffin accompanied by a freshly cooked egg and a generous serving of cheddar cheese that my lovely wife has prepared for me.

“May your day be as pleasant as you are!” GW
