Clouds, beans and clotheslines on the path least traveled…

Diary from the path least traveled…

Hello Diary,

Not a Sunday but Saturday morning here…some rain forecasted for Sunday and maybe some thunderstorms (nothing severe at this time) so thought I would post today, Diary, as I will not get online if there are storms…more like a fall day on the prairies with cool temperatures, a cool breeze and some low SC clouds…

And speaking of storms, I am at the ready should I need to move to shelter quickly.. have carryall (on the left with a weeks worth of medication) nearby with the tablet carrying case (purse), phone and tablet..

ready for emergency

Can use it for emergencies or if I need to pack it to go somewhere, don’t have items scattered all over the house… 🙂 managed to pick more green beans so sit down and snapped beans..

And then cleaned and blanched the beans, then put the beans on a cookie sheet for the freezer…

Once frozen, I can put them in a Ziploc bag and back in the freezer..can use however many I wish without having to thaw out all of them… afterwards did the laundry and hung up to dry… have clotheslines indoors (1 of 3)…

Can even dry bedsheets… saves on electric bill, reduces emissions and dependence on fossil fuels and the clothes smell good, how cool is that!… 🙂 … can do it year around and if need be have a ceiling fan I can turn on…wash the clothes one day and take down and fold the next morning… I would go outdoors but with the trees, birds and other creatures, would have to stand guard with a shotgun… 🙂

Will briefly chat about what I refer to these days as the “dark side”, and that is the “news”, of course.. I know there is good news but have to deal with the not so good news also and today it is religion.. I see all the conflicts, pain and suffering, hate and anger that is present in today’s world ( and may have some impact on me in some form) and the source responsible is religion.. one can only imagine, dream about how peaceful this world would be without religion…would like to share a quote by one of this country’s (USA) founding fathers, Thomas Paine;

“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.” Thomas Paine

Well, enough of that, too pleasant a day to dwell on such matters for any length of time…will close for now and venture on down the path least traveled, chasing the elusive rainbow, smelling the flowers and enjoying life… but I shall return one day to share more thoughts and memories, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

I believe the New Seekers said it best..
