It's a rainy day on the mountain, and a deserved day of rest for out orchard workers. They've been going straight out for two weeks. Most of the apples are going for processing this year, because of so much scab.

I am struggling a bit right now with the dreaded fibro, which has raised its ugly head and decided that it would affect my legs more than usual. It doesn't take much walking to start my legs burning and I even found as I tried to sleep last night that because of sore points, I couldn't get comfortable at all. Oh well, I've been here before. I just hope this doesn't last too long, and that it doesn't get any worse. At least I can still accomplish daily chores even if they do take me longer. One step forward, two steps back.

On to other things.....Sadie and I have been enjoying the new bird feeder I hung in the window. The goldfinch discovered it and have become used to me moving about. Sometimes I startle them, but most of the time I can move, and they will continue to feed.

Who's watching who?
We had a lovely day last Sunday. My eldest granddaughter made a decision to be baptised, and though the day threatened rain, it held off and all went well. She has made an important decision in her young life. Though I realize it is not for everyone, in our family it is a special step, taken after much thought. The Baptism took place at a lake near us, and friends and family joined together to witness it.

My very special young friends. Love them.
That's it for today.



  1. Bonnie, it's lovely seeing the photos of you and your young friends and family. Sorry to hear about your legs and lack of sleep. No fun...

  2. Sorry to hear you're having enough pain to stop you sleeping properly, Bonnie. Pain and fatigue are NOT a good combination.

    I loved the photos from your granddaughter's baptism. What a very special day for her and you all.
