From physical therapy, that is; I mean actually going to the facility to be stretched and manipulated. The day started out with a wonderful view of several wildlife activities at the lake while having morning coffee at the dining room table.
A little green heron was perched on our "woodpecker" tree branch, looking down into the lake for his breakfast. He soon flew down and did his searching from our dock.
He then disappeared and I never saw him again.
Next came a crow flying with "something" dangling from its beak. He landed on the grassy beachfront under the large spruce tree in front of the cabin. When my husband went out to see what he had caught, he flew away, leaving a small sunfish behind! After husband returned to the cabin, the crow came back and picked that sunny clean. He even brought a friend and they shared this treat. It definitely wasn't the usual crow behavior that I had ever watched before! In fact, the crows (VERY large ones) have been acting quite kinky this summer. Just the other day we saw one picking off the petals of the day lilies and then actually picking the entire flowerhead off and dropping it to the grass.
A trip to the town laundromat was next. In the summer I hang all laundry out to dry. We brought it home and my "helper husband" pinned items to the line while I was able to sort and get them in the correct position to be pinned. It was a two person project and the line was full and the laundry hung "properly." I hope sometime to be able to reach up and do this myself again, but it just can't be accomplished yet.
Then!!! A rain shower came, but thankfully it only lasted for about 10 minutes. I picked this day to launder because the forecast for the next four or five days was for daily thunderstorms. If we had waited any longer, we would have certainly had to go without underwear and socks! I refuse to feed those driers in the summer. How lucky can we be? A lovely breeze is now doing its best to complete this chore. The sun is out.
My next undertaking was to sweep the front porch floor. It is concrete and, for the past week, the pesky millipedes have been curling up and dying there, due to the perimeter of the cabin being treated to keep the usual yearly carpenter ants at bay. This year there haven't been ants seen, indoors or out, BUT....we were seeing and disposing of about a dozen millipedes every day - indoors! Because of their moisture requirement, they usually don't survive indoors for more than a few days, but we don't want them in here anyway! This has never happened before so we just figure it must be another natural anomaly due to the crazy weather we've experienced here during the past couple of years.
Our life is never boring and it is a good one. Who's complaining?
