Morning Moments from the Country on May 23/2024

Good Morning: The best part of living out here away from the cities is the daily reminder that life’s richest when it’s simplest.

It’s another sunny morning here in the north and all that hoop haw yesterday, about heavy rain, hail and wind never took place, at least for us. However, it has cooled down some with the temperature climbing out of bed sitting at 15.4 C | 59.72 F. It will warm up a bit as the day moves forward, which is good as my wife and I have our mowing to do today, which should keep us busy for the morning. The weather should stay nice now for the next few days, at least that is what Mother Nature is predicting, so we will see.

On another note, my wife and I spent yesterday planting some of our vegetables in the garden. We also moved a few shrubs and other plants to spots where we think they will be happy. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, they don’t do well in the locations we choose, and when that happens, the only solution is to relocate them.

The Wisdom of Generations Past: I found that growing up in the country, means inheriting, learning a wealth of wisdom passed down from generation to generation. Whether it’s learning how to read the signs of an incoming storm or knowing which berries are safe to eat, being a country boy means carrying on the traditions of those who came before. Nowadays, there’s a lot of focus on spiritual beliefs and what comes after this life. But from my years of experience, true fulfillment comes from the here and now—learning from the past and applying that knowledge daily. The practical wisdom our ancestors left us, in my mind, holds more answers than any spiritual teachings. Of course that is just my opinion as always.

With that, I am off for my morning bowl of cereal that my lovely wife has prepared, and then I will see if that old Roper Mower of mine will start. It can be temperamental at times. Kind of like myself more often than not.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you this morning with this: “Old barns and some old folks got a lot of stories. It pays to listen to both.”
