We arrived up on our land last night a little after 7:00. We discovered with the TV antenna on the trailer and a booster we get 12 channels. We were very surprised. We didn't watch anything except the news because we had brought a couple of Netflix DVD's with us. Last night we watched MeatLoaf who is one of my favorites.
This morning as I left on my walk I felt a few drops of rain but all through my walk it never rained. I saw the two baby deer and their mom again walking down our driveway. The second skunk I've seen here, I watched waddle across the street. A few rabbits and a couple of gold finches I saw also on the way down the hill.
I walked into town again. Just passed the fire house there was a paved path. When I see a path it cries out to me, walk down here, so I followed the path. It didn't go very far, just about a quarter of a mile and made a loop behind the ball field. I spotted a trail in the woods but again it didn't go very far but it did have a little stream.
I walked around two of the cemeteries in town and took a couple of pictures of two of the oldest grave stones I could find. Unfortunately I left the cable to take the pictures off my camera so I couldn't download them onto my laptop. I'll have to post the pictures tomorrow.
Ken picked me up at the pond in town again and we went to Annie's Kitchen for breakfast. By this time the rain was light but steady. Ken worked on the roof while I was walking and got almost all of the shingles done but the rain kept him from doing more for a while once we got back. Then he just put on an extra shirt and went out to work anyway.
I stayed inside, got things cleaned up and then knitted for a bit. I've started a pair of slippers for Ken and when they are done I'll make myself a pair. These we will keep here at the trailer.
After a while the rain stopped and it looked like the sun was going to come out so I went out and started clearing more of a foot path that I'm working on. We both were out until 1:00 which was our lunch time. It was then that it started raining again and rained all afternoon. Too hard this time for Ken to do any more work. It sure was nice having the trailer when it was raining.
About 4 the rain let up and Ken once again when outside and he worked till supper time. And now here we are sitting in MacDonald's parking lot once again.
It is supposed to rain some more tomorrow so we might be going home earlier than expected tomorrow. We shall just wait and see.
Hope you made some happy memories this Friday.
