"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

One more time

It's evening and a northwesterly wind has kicked up. The tree's are sending down showers of needles and cones. I hear a large branch break and fall somewhere off in the trees. I go upstairs and hear flapping against the side of the cabin. What kind of bird is trying to get inside? I wonder outside to have a look. A piece of tar paper covering the plywood high up on the side of the cabin has come loose but I go to bed hoping that in the morning the paper bird will still be there. This wind reminds me that fall is nearly here. Soon the storms will come. The woodshed is full of chopped dry wood but if the weather holds I want to do all the fun things my daughter and I did this summer one more time. Than I will get serious, haul out the ladder and staple those wings down.

  1. Always something to do, but yes, I vote for doing a little more summer stuff for a little longer, too!! Enjoy every last drop!

  2. Hi Kim I'm not changing gears yet- the weather is summer. My daughter asked me the other day when does fall begin? For me it's all about the weather. As long as the sun keeps shining and the rain stays away it is summer. Ronda

  3. Hugs♥ Nice to meet you ♥


    1. Thank you! It's nice to meet you and I am looking forwards to getting to know you. Ronda

  4. Oh the things that have to get done in fall before winter comes, that is what I am busy doing now! Trying to prepare now for the winter... it seems this winter may be a cold one, if the signs of nature are any indication. Glad that you have the shed full of dry wood for the winter! That is a huge task I know you are thankful to have done!!! :)
