Tote bags, chocolates and chants - oh my!
Sunny, warm, temps 20
Lovely, fresh day. Not at all humid. Had first coffee of the morning by the pool - sun out, but black flies not yet awake. The photo was taken by Michael this morning when he walked Trudy. Our wild flower field, by the pond. Lupins! Love 'em. And writing this on the porch, to the thrum of bees.
I think all our fish have 'left' the pond - to the big pond in the sky. Sad...after ten years of raising the bass. Apparently, Del thinks, an otter or some such might have gotten in during the winter and done what they do best. Happy for it - sad for the fish. But, as a result, we have so many tadpoles in the pond we can practically walk on it. Normally the fish would eat them...but now they're thriving. Can't begin to imagine the sound of all those frogs, in a few weeks. But we love having frogs. Shows a healthy eco-system. Or, a lack of bass.
Wrote 37-hundred words this morning and into the afternoon - until I ran out. Emptied the brain. Only muck coming out now. so decided to stop.
And then I did the draw for the three gifts from Saint-Benoit-du-lac. The tote bag, the chocolates and the Gregorian chants.
The winners are:
Tote bag - Alice
Chocolates - Beth
Chants - Kathleen
Congratulations. The winners have been told. And thank you all for entering, and also for your kind comments, on my contact email, but also on the comments section of the blog. I read them, and feel so warmed.
Have a meeting tonight, in Sutton....and all tomorrow to write. Getting closer. But then, you've heard that before. As I approach, The End seems to get farther away. But I'll get there one day!
Speak to you soon -
