A beautiful Saturday morning to just sit on our front porch with our old and very slow laptop and write this post. The door and windows are open, and it's cool enough that even the air conditioning doesn't have to be on. The sky is clear and there's hardly a cloud in the sky. In the yard the Mother rabbit watches over her family. We didn't see her at all yesterday and we were a little concerned that something had happened to her--Am I the only one that worries about wildlife in the yard? In an effort to keep the rabbits safe, we're not allowing the dogs into that part of the yard--But all of our worrying about her yesterday was for nothing because we finally saw her late in the evening.
Across the road I can hear the voices of the farmer and his sons and the mooing of cows as they move cattle into the pasture nearest to us. Apparently the cows are not happy about the change. The dogs really enjoy being on the front porch with me, watching and listening. I'm glad that Sam has chosen to come out here with us. A friend of mine who also has senior Goldens has insisted that Sam be put on more herbs--She swears that's what is keeping her 16+ year old going. She is so convinced of it that she purchased them and had them delivered to us. Thinking that Sam and I have nothing to lose, I started giving them to him. I'm not sure what they all are, but I suppose that time will tell if they are effective or not.
Today on my agenda is to look up blackberry recipes. We've picked the last of them, and I have more than a gallon in the freezer and 4 quarts sitting on the counter and two more in the fridge. There are so many and I'm worried they may go to waste. This morning I've already baked 'blackberry bread' but would like to find something a bit more interesting to do with them. (Any thoughts?) However at this moment the front porch is interesting enough and right now I'm not worrying about anything.
Enjoy your Saturday!
