A zip-a-de-doo-dah week on the path least traveled…

Dear Diary Page 77…

Dear Diary,

A busy past few days to be had, a major improvement in the weather, decided to take advantage and do some outdoor work, sooooooooooooo..… with the tulips and daylilies signaling it was time to enjoy the spring..


Took a picture of the bird feeder and what makes this picture different from the rest, wait for it………………………………………………………………………… the window is open!!!..:D

HI HO, HI HO outdoors Bree and I were to go, singing..

Ventured to the north end first, worked on some weather instruments, moved a smile pile of leaves and decided to move to the south side… Bree made one last look around before leaving…

Decided to spend the time in the backyard.. had done the mowing last week, now working with leaves, etc.. removed the netting and got the pond pump running with the waterfall to recycle the water for the fish (there are 7 goldfish between 2 and 3 inches)…


Then got the flowing bird bath up and running, the big birds use it because it is the right depth for them…


Then decided to start spreading leaves…

leaf mulch 1

they are environmental friendly, Bree friendly (Bree is allergic to the chemicals in purchased mulch), cheap, natural, controls weeds, I won’t have to burn and the neighbors dealing with the smoke……..

When finished, the left over leaves will go into the compost bin, and after a nice rain, will have a nice carpet of leaves for Bree to travel on…her own backyard with a touch of Yellowstone I (no buffalo roaming nor antelope playing, perhaps next year… 😀 )….decided to stop, can work on it more next week, weather permitting, Inspector Bree made one final walk through to make sure it met her approval…

Had a bite of lunch, took a short walk, Bree went to her den to take a nap and I finished the day and here I am but getting ready to leave shortly… going to give it a rest, not do much tomorrow but turn a old computer into a microscope… that is another story… 😀 going to leave with two thoughts…

“Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow remains a mystery, today is a gift. Greet it with open arms, a open heart, a open mind and a smile. Enjoy it because it won’t come again. I do not dwell in the past very often, too much in the future waiting for me…” (Larry “Dutch“ Woller penned 6-7-2008)

““I gave all those, all races, gender and religion, from all countries that perished in the Towers a time in thought and remembrance…but now it is time to move on, not live in the shadows of 9/11….. I cannot change the past, but can help determine the future… I cannot help the dead but I can the living..” (Larry “Dutch” Woller 9/11/2002)

And so it goes on the path least traveled, busy days ahead enjoying life, feeling the sunshine, gazing at the skies and wondering what destiny has in store…but I shall return again one day, not sure when or where, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Now it is time to relax, perhaps listen to Rachmaninoff and quietly ponder the next second and what it might bring… 😀
