History Lesson 3614

Over the next three hours, I took Maire on a tour of McSwain County, pointing out the landmarks as we passed them. Most of the ones that had a personal meaning to me were gone, but the ones the remained gave my daughter more insight into my youth. Sh...

Nothing Like Mayberry 3609

The California Duo weren’t kidding when they said they’d be over early this morning. I had just finished some chores on the farm when they pulled up. I asked them what time it was and they said six-thirty. “Okay, time for breakfast,...

Snowfall

Snow was forecast overnight. Drawing the curtains in darkness this morning, the electric light outside light reveals a couple of centimetres of snow in the garden. Further afield, particularly uphill, there is a little more, so after a bone-w...

Change in the Air

Though 1903 continued in the same difficult pattern and lifestyle for most Americans (see last post), the year also saw many exciting changes. The Canton Asylum for Insane Indians, with its modern lighting and plumbing, reflected the wave of innovati...

Thai Village Life – Morning Has Woken

For many westerners Thai village life is a chore to be endured when visiting their partner’s family and friends. Many expats and seasoned tourists find rural life in Thailand as dull as dishwater and extremely old hat. Then again, there are pe...

In the woodshed

The woodshed is one of my favourite places at Spring Cottage, although I like all the outhouses, of which there are three; there’s also a garage (used mainly to store gathered wood for kindling) and an ancient stone building known as the wash...

Picking flowers

I’ve always longed for a garden trug but new ones are really expensive and it’s something you can easily do without. After all, a cardboard box or a plastic basket of some kind work just as well for holding picked flowers until you brin...

Ordinary day

The weather was fine today– in the sense of ok, but actually, no, it was fine. Dry most of the day so that I had time to cut the hedge, although I’m not quite finished. Everything in the garden seems to be out at once and the water butt’...

Bluebell wood

I was on my way somewhere else when I saw them, hinting away, from the side of the road. I have been waiting so long for this sight. And there they were finally, a beautiful carpet of blue, as far as the eye could see. Tagged: bluebells, countryside,...

Baa baa…whatever

Today was a horrible day. Fretful and loathe to get up, I lurked inside for as long as possible before I faced the damp outside. But eventually my aim to counteract the worrying that is going on in my head with some productive activity did win throu...

Nothing of interest to report

This is more by way of a log of my activity here for myself (the original purpose of this blog), so it’s not very interesting. The temperature didn’t rise above freezing all weekend. The pond was frozen so I kept breaking the ice for bird...
