What a title to my post! lol Makes you wonder about me some times ~ doesn't it? Well... like I said, I'm just a gal living the simple life up in the sticks of northern Wisconsin. Not a lot of frilly, sophisticated stuff goes on around here. I live 60 miles from the beautiful shoreline of Lake Superior, 45 minutes away in either direction to a town with more than 3 stop lights. When I say I live in the woods.... I live in the woods!
We need to go grocery shopping in Canada really bad... I only have a few quarts of canned moose left. The last time we went hunting up there was in 2001. Our moose supply has long run out; but thanks to our friend Mark, he gave me enough moose meat this summer to do up 7 quarts. I'm guarding it with my life ... and would love to be able to replenish it; but those hunting trips into Canada are so expensive! There are a few moose showing up in our area; but they're protected by federal law. I don't think there will ever be an open season on them here. I think I have to start buying lottery tickets... unless there's someone out there with extra cash just laying around and would like to donate it towards my grocery list ... so I can take a little trip??
It was a good day for stew. The weather was gloomy and misty rain all day long. The sun did shine for a bit this morning; but that was short lived.
Yesterday, while it was dry out ~ before today's rain ~ Sam and I finished getting all the maple leaves off the lawn. Before, we would leave them on the lawn in the fall and hope that they'd blow off; but then it's such a mess in the spring time. Then for the last 6 years we've been raking them off. Thankfully, my dear friend Porky, gave me a gift ~ an electric leaf blower!! THANK YOU Porky!!! Since he now has the resort, he needed something with a little more power; but it was enough power for me... it took a few extension cords to reach the edge of the lawn; but it was worth it. What a difference ... it sure does save time and your back and arms from raking.
Sam even crawled up on the garage and house roofs and did the rain gutters ~ that was right up his alley!
I have a couple more bobcat shots to share:
This one's so close you can count his whiskers!
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
