How are you all doing? Since last weekend I’ve been feeling very tired, some of it likely from my hyperparathyroidism, the rest it from pandemic-related stress and sadness. I simply don’t have the energy to update with my usual frequency. Now that my book has been put on hold I also need to figure out how to start generating a small income from my blog which has been ad-free since its inception. I do have windows of energy so I’ve been getting outside to rake and do general spring cleaning in the yard. The fresh air, warming sunshine, exercise and Cider’s company is very healing. I’ve been keeping an eye out for Buster, too. Yesterday Wayne and I did some more exploring in our woods. He found a hidden gem I never knew was there!
We have a vernal pool filled with wood frogs and soon, peepers! Their calls are a soothing and happy sound of spring in Maine.
I hoped that they would be visible but I couldn’t see any and they remained silent until we left.
Beautiful decay and colorful fungi on downed tree limbs.
This mossy rock looks like plush seating.
Our seasonal spring stream led to a discovery by Wayne who was walking ahead of me:
“We have a waterfall!”
A teeny tiny wonderful waterfall.
Speaking of wonderful I treated myself to some reading material from ebay!
(Not to worry. I wiped the books down with Clorox and left them out in my sunroom for a few days.)
