Country Living on May 16/2024

Good Morning! You know, over the years, I have found that life in the country teaches you to be self-reliant… to trust in your own two hands and the wisdom of those who came before you. It’s a lesson in resilience and resourcefulness, born from the necessity of making do with what you’ve got.

It’s another nice day here in cottage country, the sun is shinning from up above, the birds are enjoying their breakfast and the grass is still growing leaps and bounds… and along with all that the trees are starting to show off their new leaves. Pretty hard to beat that waking up in the morning.

Yesterday my wife worked steadily in her flower gardens with a bit of help from me off and on. For most parts she worked on her new herb garden which she situated right outside our front door. The reason for that is now when she is cooking meals and is in need of some fresh herbs, she can just walk out and take what she needs.

For myself, I worked away fixing up my rototiller and installed a new belt and after that I gave it a work-out tilling up our vegetable garden once again. I will do it one more time before planting.

Today however is mowing day for my wife and I and I have to say it sure has grown. I am thinking we will have a good pile of grass cuttings for our vegetables when all said and done. Which is good, as later on our plants will be needing some nourishment. After we finish, well… I am thinking some front porch sittin’ will be in order, taking in all our hard work, which in turn gives us a good feeling inside that we didn’t waste a day.

Bug Report: Lots of Black Flies annoying folks these days, and as I said yesterday the mosquitoes are just starting. Years ago, my old dad used to say: If you’re lucky enough to catch a breeze, embrace it like a long-lost friend. Bugs ain’t too keen on flying against the wind, so position yourself strategically and let nature do the work for ya. That’s what my wife and I will be doing this morning, that is if there is a wind, right now it’s pretty quiet out there.

Highway Report: Highway 522 is picking up more every day with new folks roaming around looking for things to do. Which is normal for this time of year.

With that I am off once again for my breakfast that my lovely wife is making for me, and after that we will head on outside and wake up our lawn mowers.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you with this bit of wisdom I learned over the years: “Life’s like plowing a field. You hit rocks, you hit rough patches, but you keep on going ’cause you know there’s good ground ahead.”
