One Day At A Time
July 1, 2021
Well it sure is a nice and peaceful day here in our little valley. I am sitting in the swing on the front porch. There is a nice breeze blowing, we have shade trees in our front yard so our front porch is in the shade all day.
This has been a busy week, but we’ve got a lot done. We picked blueberries about every other day. I’ve canned juice and made jam. The apples are almost ready, but a lot of them have fallen off the trees. We are beginning to see a lot of those beetles.They don’t seem to bother the fruit, just the leaves.
Well here we are halfway through the year. Is it just me or is the time going by so fast? I can’t seem to get as much done as I used to. Do you think my old age may have something to do with it?
It has been a busy year. There has been a lot of things going on. Still some covid and a lot of talk about it. Seems people are trying to get back to some kind of normal, we are just taking it one day at a time. Thank the good Lord we are still in a good health.
Bob has a little surgery coming up soon. We had to go out here to the hospital to get his blood work done. I am so thankful to our local doctors and nurses and all the staff here that takes such good care of us and treat us like family. I love our town and the closeness we still have, and the way everyone looks out for each other.
Our neighbor came by and gave me vegetables from their garden and some fresh country eggs. The old John Deere tractor has been a little quiet for a few days. They’ve got their first hay in but it won’t be long until hay cutting time again. They are gathering in garden stuff and canning. It never slows down. A farmers’ work is never done. He is giving the boys a little break, school will be starting back before long. It seems kids don’t have as much time out as we used to, but nothing is like it used to be.
I want to take a moment to thank everyone that has been reading my little story each week. I’ve had some sweet phone calls, letters, cards and comments. Thank you all and God bless each of you, and thank you Mr. Hulon Dunn and all the staff at the Lewis County Herald. You all have been so sweet and kind.
We are all so blessed and God has it all under control and He is the light at the end of the tunnel.
