It's been a while since I've posted, mostly because I have limited internet access at home right now and partly because I've been busy living life.
And surprisingly, life has been good- even with the the obstacles that have been thrown in my way.
So today, I'm sharing a simple pleasure: star gazing.

Yesterday I started a fire.
It was intentional, so no worries.
I was working on burning some brush cleared from our fence line.
I had the wheelbarrow there using it to cart a bale of hay and move some large logs around.
Once I had the fire going hot, I opted to sit down.
The wheelbarrow looked inviting sitting there full of hay, so I laid down.
I discovered a wheelbarrow full of hay is a very comfortable place.
It gives you the perfect angle to watch the sky (and the handles make a nice foot rest).
So I laid there in my wheelbarrow, warmed by the fire and watched the stars come out.
It reminded me of all the times I had watched the stars in Deltaville with the
Milky Way pouring across the sky.

Always quiet except for the usual calming night noises:
Katydids, sailboat rigging pinging in the breeze, boat ropes creaking.
The next meteor shower (The Lyrids on April 21st) you'll find me in my wheelbarrow.
