Welcoming the Day in the Countryside on May 21/24

Good Morning! “Where the simplicity of life teaches us that happiness isn’t found in what we have, but in who we are.”

Not a bad morning here in the north. The temperature was sitting at 14.8 C | 58.64 F which is about right for this time of year. It will warm up a bit more as the day progresses. We also had a shower or… half a rain barrow full through the night, which worked out perfect, as it always does when my wife and I plant some trees and things. It’s always been that way. Seems Mother Nature is watching what we are doing.

Highway 522 was very busy over the weekend with lots of tourists visiting and driving through our area. Most of them don’t stay long, which ain’t surprising considering how far out we are. But I reckon that’s a bit of a blessing in disguise.

Yesterday, my wife and I kept busy working outside. We put up our American flag for our American friends along with our old Maple Leaf. Kind of nice seeing them blowing in the breeze throughout the summer months.

After that I tilled up our vegetable garden one more time adding a whole mess of grass cuttings beforehand, and then planted one row of potatoes along with some beans, cucumbers and zucchini. Today I am going to see about fixing a tire on my rototiller as it has been leaking slowly for the past ten years, but yesterday it wouldn’t hold air at all, so I will have to see how that works out as it isn’t going to be the easiest thing to change, as the rim rides on a spindle, and it is frozen solid on there with rust and won’t come off. I have been spraying it will WD 40 in hopes it loosens it for the past five years, but it still hasn’t moved. Anyway, I will have to do something, as it’s no good the way it is.

Bug Report: Truth told the Black Flies hasn’t been all that bad for the past two days which made it real nice for my wife and I, as we have or had a lot of outside work that needed doing. Still lots to do though, but in saying that we do enjoy working alongside nature. The Mosquitoes also weren’t all that bad, but there were a few irritating me inside my shop, as I had the doors open for most of the day. They like to get inside buildings as they know there is usually fresh blood around somewhere. Them blood sucking parasites!

Wisdom I have learned: “One thing I’ve learned over the years is that you can’t control everything. Sometimes you just gotta let go and trust that things will work out in the end. It’s like plantin’ seeds in the spring – you do your best, and then you let nature take its course.”

With that, I’m off to have breakfast that my lovely wife has prepared for me. Afterward, I’ll head out to my woodworking shop to fix the tire on my rototiller. It certainly has been a year full of repairs for it, that’s for sure.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you with this: “A rainy day ain’t so bad if you’ve got a good roof and a dry spot to sit. Preparation and a positive outlook make all the difference.”

Some say the best fishin’ happens when the moon’s directly overhead or underfoot. It’s an old wives’ tale, but many like myself swear by it. And there will be a full moon on Thursday.
