is in full swing. When I walked out to the car to take
Attila to work this morning, the cool and gentle breeze
was aromatic with new life. Heavenly.
This year, in spite of winter hanging on for an extra few weeks, we are getting spring-like weather. The temperatures are below average, but still quite pleasant if you wear a jacket. It stays above freezing at night, this factor really reduces the degree to which we need to heat the house. We have adequate rain and everything is green, green, green. [That is for Steve Paul Simms, see his site for the song Green Green Green] Steve Paul has made it through his recent surgery with flying colours and is healing quickly. Good news indeed.
Today I start a summer job. I've been watching for something interesting to come along and this particular position just felt like it had potential. I'll be waiting customers at the counter of a local retail outlet. You never know where you will find a pleasant place to spend time in this world. I'm going to give this one a try because everything about it has fallen together pleasantly. So far, so good.
The only drawback to working, that I have had to deal with thus far, is the significant restrictions on beans and lentils in my daily diet. Too risky! Too bad!
The last few days have been filled with site development and coding, lots of fun. However, I need a few days run at coding, just to get into the zone; so that goes on the back burner until my time off rolls around.
The black flies are out in force. Mosquitoes cling to the outside of the window screens, hoping for an invitation in, that is never coming their way. Our nets are in full use now, and we love our screened in porch.
Attila is still working at bringing in enough wood to heat the house next winter. There are several trees that did not make it through the winter. He has felled them, is now sectioning them and has yet to split and move the wood into the woodshed. Renovation projects are on the back burner until the winter's wood is safely secured.
My genealogy projects are almost at a stand still. I did manage a morning at the library with my laptop, where I have access to high speed. However, I did not accomplish much and need to revisit. A few breakthroughs, I found the maiden name of my GGGG Grandmother, noted on the death registration for my GGG Grandfather, her son. This has opened up a whole set of new questions to explore and that is the fun of it!
For such a quiet life, it feels very, very full!
