Today I finished moving the fireplace logs from the wood yard to near the house entrance. I do this every year at this time so when the cold and snow come later it is at a near and convenient place to bring it inside. It took me working two hours a day for four days to do this.
I bring the wood into the house as needed with a kindling supply and store it at the entrance as shown and Cynthia does the remainder —that is carrying it to the fireplaces and preparing it for starting.
At the present time we have three B&B guests, well known artist, Doug Kent, also Lt. James Cowhig of the Massachusetts State Police, and his cousin, Tom Russo, the latter two are fishermen in the very big Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby held on the Island every year, internationally known with huge prizes.
Cynthia is making very tasteful pies using butternut squash that we have grown toooo much in abundance.
I believe it is 15 skunks Walter Wlodyka, the skunk and raccoon removal man, has captured at $100 each and I saw two more last night so we will have him return because the skunks are on the same path that the guests use on the way to the alternative outdoor shower. Skunks feed on the black sunflower seeds left over from the bird handouts.
What do I do with my time? Have done two videos shown on MVTV and have two more to edit. Just downloaded El Capitan on the Mac. Do a daily run to the Post Office, run is not the right word it is drive—-I cannot run—-am thankful I can walk even slowly with as many pauses as it takes. In the morning I open the coops, water and supply feed for the 10 chickens and 9 Guinea fowl that roost in the trees. TIME and THE WEEK need to be looked at and all those Emails.
