|Our breakfast this morning. Pancakes with maple syrup from New Hampshire, little smokies, a Mexican bacon from the farmer's market, and orange juice.|
Three members of my family were able to get archery tags this year and the season opened for them today. Unfortunately, it rained. Not only did it rain, there was wind, thunder, and lightning to accompany the drenching liquid. Even the power couldn't decide if it should remain on, so it flickered off and on a few times. We shouldn't complain, I know. We need the rain as the gardens are drying out and things are dying. But on opening day? Makes for miserable conditions.
Aside from the weather, life seems to be going on smoothly. I was out in my flower gardens cutting things down and pulling out dead things. Then there is the usual dusting, (why DO we call it dusting when really what we are doing is removing the dust?) cleaning, laundry, letter writing,... Just the usual things here. I made a loooong list when I got home of the things I needed to accomplish. I think I have 2/3 of the list left to complete. Slowly but surely!
