“The morning sunshine brings the message that life is so bright and beautiful that the darkness of night has no power to hide it.”
It’s a brisk 40* this morning and were all moving a little slow. Even the alpacas! I know, though, that we are all grateful that the sun is shining.
I spent the major part of the day working on prepping for Fort Days. I got five hats and many dryer balls going just yesterday, and am feeling pretty good about the pace. There is still lots of finishing work to do. I work on projects throughout the year and do the finishing work at once. Seems to work for me that way.
Our painters were here and I got sidetracked by having to pull out and trim back some plants that were growing right next to our house. It was a good time to do it and needed to be done. Anyone need any lambs ear? Chives? Monkshood? I’ve got lots to share.
Then I moved the alpacas into the second part of our solar fenced pasture. It’s working great and they had their fill and it looks great! This may work.
After that, I pulled all of my tools outside to work on my projects and it was glorious! Sunny yet comfortable and what a view! Jay was moving a bit of gravel to our neighborhood driveway to fill in the bumps and ditches and came back with the news that the power was out. Again. It’s happening more and more. This time they said it was maintenance and wouldn’t be back on before 8 PM.
When we got home, the power was on and I got back to work with Tucker on in the background. Give him a watch sometime. If you can get past the maniacal laugh he does once in a while, he really lays out how our country is losing our focus on what’s important. I think he has some good researches working for him.
For now, I’ve gotta put my nose to the grindstone. The sun’s out and I appreciate that! Light and dark. You can’t have one without the other.
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
