Living Simply in the Country on April 27/2024

Good morning! Where the best conversations happen over a cup of coffee on the porch, and the best advice is passed down from generation to generation.”

It’s a cloudy morning, starting things off here in cottage country. We could see a few showers off and on throughout the day, with some heavier rain starting this evening and through the night. The good news is it has warmed up some, with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at 11 C | 51.8 F.

Highway 522 traffic wise has picked up a lot with folks rolling in from the big cities. Although, we have had an influx of new folks buying homes in our area over the past few years. A lot are getting out of the cities these days, and I can’t say I blame them. I just hope we don’t get over run with people, as the peace and quiet is why we moved here many years ago. But it is what it is.

Wisdom Learned: While growing up on the farm, I learned to live in harmony with nature, listening to the whispers of the wind and the stories the trees and plants tell. There’s a rhythm to life that city folks might never understand, a rhythm that beats in time with the seasons and the cycles of the moon.

On another note: My wife and I finished up our fishpond, putting a tidy edge around it, planted a heap of greenery, and now we are all set for the rain to bed them in. Along with sprucing up our lawn a bit as it was trampled down a bit from the work we have been doing. Now, I’ve got that water wheel to finish, and the new pump to install. Still a few odds and ends left, but we’re getting there. It’s all about time and patience. Comes with age, I reckon. The missus and I have learned that over the years.

Since the weather’s not great today, I’m going to focus on finishing up that garden bench I started a few days ago. It’s a bit tricky, but once it’s done, my wife and I will enjoy sitting on it by our new fishpond. Hearing the waterwheel and seeing all our hard work will be really nice.

With that I am off for my morning bowl of porridge that my lovely wife is making for me and will then see how much sawdust I can make in my woodworking shop.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you with this: “Out here in the country, every sunrise is a reminder that yesterday’s troubles are just shadows in the rearview mirror. With each dawn, we’re given a fresh start, a new chance to make things right, and a world of possibilities waiting just beyond the horizon.”
