Journal Entry / Thoughts For Today 05/02/2018

And Now The Work Begins

It is now officially spring in the woodlands of Central Northern Michigan. The Grosbeeks have returned to the Rollin’ Rock. We mourn their migration each August. It just makes it all so final. Oh, I’m sorry, if you don’t know what a Grosbeek is, it’s a beautiful bird . All of the ice piles have melted, the ground is soft enough to till, and there are daffodils blooming in the butterfly garden in the east20.

We are so excited and overwhelmed to get this new year of planting and reconstructing started. There are so many loose ends to tie up and projects to finish up and put in motion, but we are motivated by the warmth of the sun and the soft gentle breezes.

The wind generator will rise into the east20 with the help of friends from Tennessee, the garden is expanding, a new cowboy to raise (puppy), hopefully a few more livestock, the completion of the storage shed, build a beehive hutch, solar collectors have to be moved and completed and a host of other projects.

I’ll keep you posted as we get started. Cabin life isn’t for everyone, but I’m sure glad we’re here!

Daily Prompt: Waiting

Dish, The Lone Cowboy

Waiting is measured in relevance to time. The more time you have nothing to do, the more time you have to sit around and wait.

My dog has nothing to do. He is watching my every move just waiting to see if I’m going to get up. If I do, you can bet he will be first out of the chair, yes, you read that right, he is waiting in my chair, and out to the door. He anticipates a walk. He always anticipates a walk. He lives for the three major dog groups. Food, walks, travel, and sleep. All the rest of the time he waits. He has grown patient and willing…….to wait. He is the best!
