The Future Part 3

Umm… That is about as far as I am able to look into that subject…
I have made a few steps to do a few things around the house.
Saturday I did my gardening. I must say, I picked up a new flower. It is beautiful.  Ok, I must confess.  I picked up a few new flowers but here is one.   One pot for my beds and one for C’s grave. I keep a pot of something there all year.  Currently is a pot of deep dark purple Cala Lilies.

I just had to have it!

Sunday, DH and I went to the Lake for the day.  Visiting and had supper.  It is tradition in my family to open the cottage on this weekend and we have family dinner on Sunday at 6 pm.    The numbers were low this year.  Only 10.  A lot of the family has moved across the country in recent years.

Monday, I cut firewood.  Check check.  That is done for fall.  All wood has been felled and ready for bucking up come September.  Turned out to be a good day in the woods.  Slight breeze, no bugs and only 10″ of mud in the mud holes on the road.  Although the first tree we cut, Dad bungled up the saw. “Dad, where is the axe?”  there is a slight pause….. “In home……”  Which is a 6 minute walk to the truck, and a 10 minute drive in one direction.  We improvised and made a come-a-long with a pole and a length of chain.  Whew…

Oh, PS for those that did not know. I am not a girly girl. Hahahaha.  I cut wood, I help hay in the summer, I garden, do yard work etc.. Whatever is needed.  My feminine vice is a pedicure once monthly.  (Saturday, I picked a lovely shade of blue in memory of C)

I believe summer has come to my neck of the woods.  Which I am grateful as I cannot wait for my lilies to bloom, nights at the lake, lying in bed listening to the loons, paddles in the canoe and a few fireworks here and there.

Perhaps, if I just continue on the future will fall into place.  That is the first time in 3 years that I even worried about what tomorrow brings.  Maybe this is a sign………

  1. Opening the cottage for the summer sounds like a wonderful way to spend a weekend! I love that you spend time in the woods, actually getting your hands dirty. I suspect there is something therapeutic about chopping wood.
    P.S. those flowers are beautiful. I love that you have them at home and at C’s grave.
