Right now if you look very closely you’ll see signs of spring. A cursory glance still shows bare trees, dead leaves and patches of snow. We spent some time walking in our woods, hanging out with Cider and relishing in home comforts. I have a new camera/phone so I practiced getting close-up shots that capture the lively details of renewal. There’s also a sweet video at the end of this post. On to the pics:
How beautiful is our boy, Cider?!
Wayne just brought the pine brush that fell into our side yard from our neighbor’s tree into the woods as he holds onto some bittersweet. As of now he is still working during the week. The boatyard isn’t just about yachts; they provide essential services to fishing boats and island ferries. The employees are spread out far enough so that they can easily maintain a minimum of six feet from one another. On the one hand I wish he could stay home but on the other I’m grateful he still has a job! I also appreciate what he does for work even more as it’s important to support our fishing industry to feed Maine and beyond.
There is a half dead half alive tree in our woods.
OK, so, there appears to be a face in this vintage circa I don’t know woodpile! This was here when I bought the house.
And…it looks like it’s wearing a mask?!
Counting rings to age the tree at the time of its fall.
A little heart of snow!
I have some good grocery news. The local dairy farm is offering contactless pickup. You simply call in, pay over the phone and pick up farm fresh milk they leave for you at least six feet away from your car! I wipe everything down in our sunroom before bringing it into the house.
We were also able to score a Whole Foods delivery! For the past two weeks every time I checked there were no available delivery windows. We got lucky.
After a steak dinner with homemade scalloped potatoes we enjoyed The Lawrence Welk Show followed by Britcoms. I almost didn’t want to watch Lawrence Welk thinking that it felt like a lie and ridiculous in a pandemic world. Then I realized that Mr. Welk was a teenager when he lived through the 1918 Spanish Flu. I need my wholesome “guilty” pleasure of mid-century color, hair and music now more than ever!
Perhaps because of his experience with and having survived a worldwide pandemic he understood and committed to providing wholesome, happy, colorful and hopeful entertainment. Speaking of entertainment, my new Galaxy S20 has a feature that creates music videos with special effects (volume on). Hope this little clip brings you a smile!
