I cannot think of what to write. I’m stumped…literally. haha We’ve been cleaning up the slag (tree tops) from a tree harvest cutting the larger branches for fire wood and stacking the branches in ditches to make brush piles or burning where there is no place for a brush pile.
In between all of that fun, my grand daughter came down for a week long visit. I was ready for a break from the woods to enjoy our time together. She’s almost 10 and is in complete charge of our calendar of events. She came down wanting to sew on ‘the real sewing machine’, and so (haha) she did. I taught her some basics and she made the small pillow she wanted to make for traveling in the car. We went fishing up on the river today, canoeing around when the fishing was slow, and laying in the water to cool off. We even did some watercolor painting on the shore when we took a shade break. I have enjoyed having this sweet girl around. Since all of my grand kids love the piano and want to learn something new each time they come down, I decided to buy a beginner’s book. She read the theory about the notes on the first couple of pages on the way home from the store practicing on an imaginary keyboard and played the first song perfectly and has mastered the 2nd and 3rd, too. Hmmm…I’m thinking Mom and Dad may need to get her some piano lessons at home.
I was disappointed that I was so busy last Tuesday (working in the woods) that I completely forgot to write and tonight I’m so tired after an action packed couple of days along with today on the river that this is all I can muster up tonight. But at least I got over being stumped when I let my heart and fingers go and start typing-ending up with a sweet reminder of our visit this week…and we still have 4 more days to go and I’m looking forward to more adventures. What will tomorrow bring??? 🙂
