Not-so-subtle Reminder

Hey, in case it's slipped your's Election Day! I don't discuss matters like politics here, and I'm not going to do so now. I just don't want anyone to forget they have the right to make their opinion heard today. So if you're planning on voting, today's the day!

The week is settling into one where the routine is easy and the pleasure sweet. We've been walking in the meadow and forest a lot lately and it's been wonderfully relaxing. Hubby and I hold hands as we walk. Sometimes we chat but other times we just walk together. The silent times let me contemplate the book I'm writing, as well as enjoy the quiet companionship of my dearest friend. Not exactly newsworthy but very satisfying.

We did get the big barn straightened out...a bit. There's lots more to do in the space but it will wait until spring. For now, we can at least walk between tractors, tillers and lawn furniture. In the not-too-distant future we're going to have to decide what our plans are for the big barn. It was built in 1805 and has been sorely neglected through the centuries. When we bought the farm we patched it up but eventually it's going to need some major repairs. So we've got some serious pondering to do on that front.

But today? Just going to enjoy the day. Planning to bake cookies this afternoon. A new recipe, but if it comes out well I'll share it with you. Just give me time to, um...test the cookies for you. That's right; it's a test. Wouldn't want you to bake any bad cookies, now would I? ;-)

Your day sounds great. I wish I could be where you are! I've got to go to work.

I just have to drop off my ballot. They just opened about 15 minutes ago.

Have a great day and congrats on your Nano count. You're doing great.
