This living in limbo is so odd. We had a second phone line strung from a pole across our neighbor's meadow, and our road, and our front yard, into the house where we have carved out a little office space for Batman's newest venture. He is transitioning to working from Vermont some days and Connecticut some days. It is not ideal, but it is part of moving the dream forward.
Working outside has been tricky this summer...either rain or unbearable heat have hampered any ambition. My hat and trusty bandana have provided some relief, but I've never been a summer girl, and so I long for the autumn.
Our favorite flag has been waving with hope and determination. It always makes me smile.
The heat wave has broken, thanks to multiple crazy thunderstorms up here on the ridge. One day there was a lot of rattling of things on the kitchen shelves, not to mention hair standing up on the back of my neck. Thank you Mother Nature for reminding me of who is in charge.
Remember the netting frame we made a few years back? Well, the blueberry bushes have outgrown it, so Batman modified it. We used the same idea and some of the original framing, but built it a bit taller. Since it was such a wet summer here for a while, we have a bumper crop of berries. Sometimes I just pick them, rinse them and throw them into muffins, pancakes or yogurt. Today I spread 8 pints on cookie sheets, froze them and them put them in freezer bags labelled "Homestead blueberries, summer 2013". Dang, that was satisfying!
Hope you are finding time to rest and relax. I thought I'd let our dear, sweet Henry have the last word here today.
