|Shiny, wet leaves this morning, looking out my window from my "blogging post".|
I told you I would repost. But I'm not. Today is Poetry Friday over at and I have linked my post from Sunday to it today. So Poetry Friday people will be going to my post about the e-zine, Shadows Express to read "Two Rainbows and the Moon", while we stay right here...
So what shall we do?
We're here in Maine, Vacationland...ah, a trip to the beach, a picnic, hike the trails, go fishing, pick strawberries, kayak the bay, eat some Gifford's ice cream, do some hammock stretching exercises...
Oh, it's raining outside... again?
It's actually cold enough in the house to turn on the heat. A while ago there were a couple of sweltering, days and nothing was funny. It got so hot in the middle of June, we broke down and bought an air conditioner. That was evidently all we needed. I was amazed by its cooling effect. Most people have to install the air conditioner to have it work. Ours is still in the box. I may have to return it, it's making it rain now, too. I don't know how to turn it up with the box still sealed.
Well, time to get that sweater and some socks...
and a puzzle or the cribbage board...
and hot chocolate.
Ok, really, I'm getting my socks and sweater. And Gifford's is going to have to wait (yes, we eat ice cream even in winter here, but that's when we're wearing socks and not standing in the rain... well, wait... no, rain doesn't matter).
Anyway, I'm freezing. But it's better than being hot, I think.
Totally unrelated event as I finished this post:
HA! I just saw something out of the corner of my eye... a big ole' wild turkey was looking in my sliding glass door at me (remember the one with no porch). I guess they don't mind the cold, rainy weather. Barefooted, too.
I love it here.
