Isn’t life grand?
I love life.
No matter what the TV or radio or national news says. No matter how many pessimists announce that the world is going to hell in a handbasket.
I think our life is a magnificent one, a life filled with unlimited possibilities.
May we enjoy it to its fullest–may we recognize the gift we’ve been given!
OK, here’s our update from our Little House in the Big Woods.
As you can see, we’ve been grilling corn on the cob.
We’ve been canning salsa–even though you don’t see pictures. Trust me on this one. Hot salsa. Barry added the jalapenos. I don’t even want to tell you how many.
Barry had his brain MRI this afternoon. He just shared his interesting experience in the tube enclosure as we sat on the deck. His heart echocardiogram and conversion is scheduled for Tuesday in Marquette. What a few weeks this has been!
A strange spider hath appeared on the garden fence.
Our neighbor’s guinea fowls escaped and wandered on the road as we drove by. I decided to venture down their long and winding driveway to advise the neighbors of the escapees. They were not surprised.
Late summer goldenrod and aster continue to bloom. Lupines and daisies and other mid-summer flowers dry up. The male hummingbirds prepare to travel south, buzzing wildly at the feeder, swooping their male competitors. The females eye them lazily, unconcerned at male antics.
Barry and I split wood–any spare moment we have. We split a pick-up load of wood and then Kiah helps unload it in the wood pile. We know that winter awaits. We’ll be ready.
This morning we awoke to discover that our wooden bee was working on our latest puzzle. Our bee–I know some of you have met him before–does very odd things. Sometimes he dangles above the computer, or hangs out in the refrigerator. This morning he was working on the puzzle.

That’s all. A Day in the Life.
Thank you for stopping by. I’m sure your days were filled with as many strange and interesting observations and inclusions.
Happy Labor Day weekend!
