Nesting

      N is for Nest. . .       I’m joining Alphabe-Thursday ~ this week’s letter assignment is the letter N.   This the first Alphabe-Thursday I’ve participated in~ I saw Sarah monkeying around last week at Hyacinths for the Soul and it looked so much fun, I wanted to join in.        I…

No Muskrat Love

What did you do this past weekend? We trapped muskrats (one a night). . .it is Operation Relocate Muskrat(s) in our cove at the lake now. I’m afraid it is pointless, but it seems to make my husband feel better. We are trapping them with nothing more than an apple cut in half, that we put in the trap overnight. The next…

Chairs

     It is chair-sitting weather again~ The fine art of “Chair-Sitting” involves:  Stare at the Water and Clouds. Read a Little. Have a Drink. Watch the Purple Martins. Hold a Dog in your Lap. Listen to Music.  Discuss Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and just Sloooow Down.          Read the history of Adirondack…

Porch Dining for One

Dock Shadows

What a difference a week makes!

    I thought I’d share differences in just a week in my yard. . . I’m so anxious for spring this year that I’m noticing every little change, new bud, and bloom!     Last week’s status (and my St. Patrick’s Day green!)       This week            Last…

BBRRRRRRR!

 It’s beautiful out, but too cold for my thin Southern blood. Current temperature here at the lake is 28 degrees; windy and light sleet falling…  Temperature is dropping to the teens tonite, so no driving, and cancelling of  husband’s birthday dinner plans with friends :(  It’s hard to believe I was sitting in these chairs Thursday…
