the tree top fell on my little trailer,
the front window was smashed into thousands
and thousands of small glass pieces.
I picked up some of them last week,
before my surgery. Attila took the shop
vac out and vacuumed the lawn around
the front of the trailer a few evenings
ago. This morning I was out there with
a pair of tweezers, attempting to remove
the remaining shards and bits.
The mosquitoes eventually ended my project. I gave up after being bitten several times by the vicious little creatures. I think about West Nile virus, but living in the woods, with wetlands on our property, there is no escaping these bloodthirsty little beasts, no matter how hard we try. But goodness, September!
My fantasy is that we have already been exposed to the virus, suffered minor symptoms that we did not recognize as West Nile Virus and therefore have nothing to fear. How would you know?!
A lovely day out there today.
I have not heard from Annie in over two weeks and am now beginning to worry. Once I begin to worry patience flys out the window. Annie just moved house, and I know from reading the journals of other Brits that getting hooked up to the internet can take time after a move.. All the same, I am getting anxious to hear from her!
I have a list of small chores, but somehow have not quite managed to get any one of them completed. Hmm.. I haven't really started any of them either! Oh well, a day of rest (or is that confusion?) is in order I would think.
This morning I prepared a bowl of oatmeal for myself, then added some of it to my morning smoothie. I cannot handle a spoon in my mouth yet. Well, I can say that I prefer my oatmeal in bowl, eaten with a spoon. I am missing my morning oatmeal!
Tomorrow I return to work. I have my fingers crossed that I'll be able to handle it. I know I'll be bone tired by the end of the day. I should sleep well tomorrow night!

From busy day the peaceful night;
Rich, from the very want of wealth,
In heaven’s best treasures, peace and health. "
