Living Well Off the Beaten Path on April 18/2024

Good Morning! Where the only deadlines we have are set by Mother Nature herself – and let me tell ya, she’s got a way of keeping us on our toes.

In saying that statement, we are having some rain here this morning. Actually, it started around 1:00 PM yesterday and hasn’t stopped, and it will remain that way all day and into tomorrow. After that though, the sunshine should be back with us, which we are looking forward too.

On another note, my lovely wife and I did manage to get our firewood piled yesterday. It took us two and a half days to get it done, we had 13 cords or so. I have to say it was a challenge this year with it being so wet, and having to use a wheelbarrow running it on a narrow board to where we were piling it. But we got it done up just before the rain started. The weather and I have an understanding you might say, as when ever I ask it for things, like to hold off till I get things done, it does. It’s been that way now for over 70 some years.

Today, being that my wife and I are tired, and It’s raining outside, we are going to be taking it a bit easy here in the house. Just because we can.

Highway 522 has been a bit busy with mostly the locals roaming around taking in the sights. You could say it’s a normal day occurrence.

Wisdom I was taught and learned while on the farm: “In this fast-paced world we live in, folks it seems are always looking for the next big thing, the latest trend. But on the farm, we know better. We know that the old ways are still the best ways. We know that you can’t rush Mother Nature, that good things take time. So we take it slow, we take it steady, and we let the land guide us. And in the end, we come out ahead, because there’s wisdom in them fields, that is…. if you’re willing to listen.”

With that I am off for my morning bowl of porridge that my lovely wife is making for me, and will then see what the day has in store.

You all have a great day and I will leave you with this: “Life in the country is like a well-worn pair of overalls – comfortable, reliable, and just a little bit quirky. So let’s embrace the wrinkles, the frayed edges, and the occasional missing button – after all, it’s the imperfections that make us unique!”
