You know, sometimes you’re just going along having a good time blogging and writing and taking pictures and networking and then something, or some things happen and Life just gets in the way. And don’t you hate that excuse? I sure do, but it’s all I have so I’m sticking to it. And then one day you realize that folks out there are still finding your blog, still leaving comments, and gee, it was a lot of fun when you wrote every day or a couple of times a week at least…and you say to yourself, Self, why don’t you take up blogging Natural Notes again? And so you write a few posts and in spite of all good intentions, you are side-tracked again by numerous goings on until one day you just throw up your hands and say “That’s IT! I’m blogging again and that’s that!” And so it is.
This is what is left of our backyard…where we fed the deer last winter is just to the left of the trailer, under that pile of rubble. Our contractor is a bit messy. The front yard doesn’t look much better.
We’re pleased with the work so far inside the house – we added 8 feet to the back for the full 50′ length and wrapped the whole thing in hemlock boards, which now need to be chinked before the cold weather sets in. I’ve relocated the bird feeders and we’re hoping the deer will return once all the banging sawing and hammering is over. Should be done in the next two weeks or so. They say.
In other news, although running a bit late as usual, the banding lanes were cut yesterday and the nets are going up. Rained out this morning, but we’ll see what the weather has in mind for tomorrow. I should finish getting set up and be banding by the weekend.
And of course, I will probably be refreshing this site a bit, and making time to visit the blogs I enjoy reading. No, really.
