Last night by the time we were ready to go to bed, it was freezing in the house. I went around closing all the open windows so it wouldn’t be unbearable in the morning. I bet it was close to 49° at day break this morning. Well Jeeze um…it is only sixteen days until fall really arrives, so what’s the big surprise anyway, I ask myself anyway?
So…today we will be working around the farm all day. We have purlings to finish, hurricane clips to install, a new barn light to install and a Bilco door to the basement to rebuild so we can keep rain and snow melt out of the basement entry this fall and winter. After all this is completed, Vick and I have nothing to do but run the farm and write, paint and read. What a glorious thought…FINALLY…
I hear Gladys calling for her flock to come visit…in vain many mornings…not on others. Soon, they will leave for the season, much like the tourist groups who depart from here each Labor Day, ending the regular vacation season…leaving all of us regulars to brave the winter alone.
Gladys may or may not realize she is not alone and that when the lake freezes over, she will again be able to escape the harsh winter in the barn with the other ducks and Doodles…our Canadian Honker.
Jeeze, I hate the thought of winter coming so soon.
