🌸When one's expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates what one has. (Stephen Hawking)🌸
Hello there lovely people. Thank you for stopping by. I hope that with the arrival of Spring your world is becoming more colorful. Sadly I can only report that mud season has arrived here. New birds are showing up at my feeders so that is encouraging.
My first robin!
(He looks a little rough around the edges. I wonder how far he had to travel to get here.)
The next few days we are supposed to be getting temps in the 50’s! I am planning on starting the process of sorting through boxes I brought down from upstairs, about 20 of them so far. The squirrels have made an awful mess up there. I have had no luck catching the last one that seems to be smarter than the rest. I haven’t heard him today though. I wonder where he is. If I do catch him I am going to take him across the bridge and hopefully our paths will never meet again! The other night MOM said he was running around her room. She hunkered down with the covers over her head. She sleeps in the old dining room. It doesn’t have a door only an archway. I’m not sure if it was fact or fiction. She is very nervous and every little noise is exaggerated. The wind was howling that night and the satellite dish was pounding on the roof. But thank goodness I have a door on my room. Tomorrow the carpenter comes. I am putting all my eggs in his basket! Today I broke up the monotony of my days of trying to out smart the little bugger by going to Ellsworth for my macular degeneration injection. Breakfast at MacDonald’s! I hope the rest of my week goes smoothly. My aim is to destress. I may take a folding chair down to the shore and count waves. 🤪
I imagine I will spend some time cleaning up my flower garden. We shall see. I have no expectations of myself. One day at a time.
I have buried myself in a murder series, nine books, written by Simon McCleave. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I have also listened to Force of Nature by Jane Harper. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I get very little sleep.
I saw in our news that:
https://bangordailynews.com/2021/04/04/news/hancock/acadia-national-park-preparing-to-open-27-mile-park-loop-road/. Gone are the days of paying your entrance fee and exploring the park at your leisure. I usually visit the park once a year since it’s not that far from here but I think I will be giving it a miss this year.
The only other news is that our bridge will be under repair starting the 12th. Another annual event consisting of long lines, single lane and never ending delays week after week.
And there you have it!
Take good care of yourselves,
