Pics from today...

Lunch: cucumbers & cherry tomatoes out of the garden,
grapes from the co-op & herbal sun tea
A full wagon of hay. Not so good a view for the boy in the back :-)

Another beautiful sunset

Weeded most of the day. Made a dent in the blueberry & strawberry patch. I love being in the garden. Such peace among the plants.
Tomorrow should be a sunny, warm day followed by a chance of rain through the weekend. I plan on getting all the outside chores done that I can. Thursday is my birthday & I plan on going into town to window shop & Friday is a cleaning day before the kids come up to visit. Wish I could slow the days down a little. They seem to fly by up here. I miss Steve though. We talk twice a day or more but it would be more fun with him here. I think Mia misses him too. She usually sleeps on his side of the bed. She is downstairs hunting for mice right now. She has caught two this summer so far. I think the word is out now though. She hasn't had any luck this week.
Off to read "Driftless" by David Rhodes. He is a local author from Wonewoc. It's a great book if you get the chance to read it.
Hope to get up early tomorrow. We'll see....

Happy Birthday!

Thanks for mentioning the book. I have been searching for a good book to give a friend that turns 40 next week - she and her husband own a cabin in the woods near Potosi - this is the PERFECT book. I read the first page of the preface aloud to Bill and it brought us both to tears. We love the area so much!

Thanks! I finished the book already. I really got involved in the characters lives. The sign of a good book. I ordered 2 others of his online (one is out of print).
