Between Fields and Forests on March 5/2024

Good Morning! We made it to another day, which gives us another chance to tend the land and reap what we’ve sown. Which is what my lovely wife and I are planning on doing today, as we have a lot of gardens that needs our attention. Last fall we didn’t have time to do much cleaning or raking, so looking outside, it’s a mess. So that should keep us busy for today and into tomorrow.

Highway 522 is bare and dry these days, which makes travelling good, and it won’t be long before folks that have cottages starts to return to our area, wanting to get away from the cities. I can’t say I blame them, neither.

For a while there, we saw a slew of new faces settling in our neck of the woods, but the flow has slowed down a lot. One reason is the hefty price tags on land and homes, making it a stretch for many to even dream of owning a slice of property. And with that, folks aren’t opening their wallets as wide, not with all the uncertainty hanging heavy in the air these days. It’s making folks think twice before spending, especially on those big-ticket items.

In my opinion, it’s not such a bad thing as it seems to me we’re heading toward some rough times, what with the influx of folks moving/coming into our country and not enough opportunities/jobs or roofs over their heads to go around. The real muddle, though, lies in where some of our leaders are funneling the hard-earned dollars of the working man/woman. It seems they’ve got their sights set on distant shores/themselves, when our own backyard’s crying out for attention. And the worst part is some are calling that progress. Mind you, I say “some” because what we hear in the news these days seems more like a handful of voices clamoring for attention by spreading a heap of false rumors and such. Again all I just said is just my opinion.

On another note, yesterday I worked steadily for the morning in my woodworking shop and then in the afternoon finished up editing another video, that I made a few days ago. All in all it was a productive day as it should be. Nothing worse in my mind than to waste a day. Although sometimes it can’t be helped.

With that I am off for my breakfast that my lovely wife has prepared for me and will then head on outdoors.

Have a great day, and I will leave you with this: “Life is too short to take seriously. So I found that it’s best to laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change.” GW
