Yesterday we spent the whole day in a cloud. It didn’t really rain but as you walk through the cloud you pick the water right out of the cloud and the temperature never moved all day. At 6 am it was 50 degrees and the only movement was to drop to 49 after dinner. Just too miserable for me to work out side so I stayed in and cooked. Norman went out and moved brush down to the burn barrels He got two big piles moved and today we are burning it. We also had lots of paper to burn. While we were in Florida we could recycle some papers but any mail with our name on them or with personals information Norman saved and brought home for us to burn. Here we burn anything we can instead of taking to the land fill where we have to pay 11 cents a pound to have to dumped and then Norman is afraid of some one stealing his identity. I don’t think anyone else would want to be Carol Petts but if he feels better I’ll burn it all.
I think I told you about the old butter churn I have on my front porch. We have had a squirrel that comes up to lap it for years and this year he has started to chew at it some. Now we have two that come and when they get here at the same time it is fun to watch them fight and chase each other. Our windows go almost to the floor so I can sit here in my chair with my feet up and watch them. Our house is just part of the forest. No cars come down our drive so the animals aren’t afraid of the being disturbed. We will miss this private place when we sell, but sell we must before it gets to be too much for us. Until then Have a great day.
