Hello there! I am so happy you could stop by. There's not much happening here in the cove. Especially since the bitterest cold temperatures and wind we've experienced so far has come knocking at our doors and windows. I have been very generous to the wildlife that visits my yard. I can't bear to see them struggling to find food when it's so cold. I ordered six 50 pound bags of cracked corn and two 50 pound bags of black oil sunflower seeds from Hammond Lumber in Blue Hill the first of the week and had it delivered. They stack it in our main entry way to the house and I drag the bags in and through the house to the other entry that goes out to the side yard. Whew, what a work out! Before Covid they used to do all that for me and I would give them a generous tip.😌 The good old days.
We had a few other visitors this week as well.
Tomorrow I hope to go down the Island to Stonington to the store. We are expecting a Nor'easter next week, Tuesday and Wednesday. Wouldn't you know it, Wednesday is the day I have an appointment in Ellsworth for my eye injection! Oh, well, it is what it is.
Several days ago I was on a step stool putting up a new clock on the wall. As I stepped back down I forgot that I had put a six pack of ginger ale bottles on the floor that were in my way. (A very dumb thing to do.) I stepped off the bottom step onto the bottles. I went flying across the kitchen backwards with my arms flapping and bottles going in all directions. I crashed into the sink area with a painful jolt to my back and slid to the floor scraping my back down across the knobs on the cupboards. . To say it hurt like blazes would be an understatement ! I have been on medication for years due to back issues. When I could get up I went in the bathroom and threw up. I was out of commission for two days. Poor Mom, who has her days and nights mixed up again, was on her own. She is quite able to fend for herself if she has to. I am taking it slow and easy.
So, it’s another day since I started this post. I woke up at 11 o’clock! It feels good to feel better!❤️
I headed down the Island to the store to stock up before the nor’easter we are expecting strikes us with 10 inches of snow. I stopped a couple of times to snap a few photos. It’s still cold, 15 degrees but sunny.
