the beginning of May

by grace on May 20, 2021

May 2nd, the first family of geese! I think there were about 10 babies.

Kevin and I took a wonderful kayak ride that morning.

I don’t know why I didn’t take pictures during our trip; we paddled all the way to the end of Long Bay, one of my favorite spots on the lake. We can’t take the pontoon boat all the way to the end so it feels enchanting to me.

We have a big rooster placement problem here. Kevin pounded a piece of rebar into the ground last year to place the giant rooster and so he put it back in the same place this year because when he pulled it out last year, one of the piece of rebar stayed in the ground because it was pounded right into a big root. So now it’s not going anywhere, but it totally blocks the beautiful irises that Dad planted down there.

As the ground keeps sinking down there, stuff isn’t looking good, which is why it’s even more important to at least have the irises. Kevin has talked about laying some railroad ties down along the edge, so hopefully he’ll do that this summer. The only problem with that is that there are approximately a zillion other things that need to be done.

Sweetie had never laid in this window sill before; she loves to mix it up in terms of sleeping spots all over the house.

I wasn’t able to successfully-enough capture the far shore which was lit up in the evening.

And here’s Spot, our outdoor kitty. He hangs out on the front porch quite a bit and also sometimes on the back deck and he has gotten in the fenced yard on more than one occasion. We need to make him part of the family! One problem with this is that he might terrorize everybody else. He’s definitely an Alpha male.

Darling little Lovey who might be related to Spot. She clearly doesn’t care for him but she continues to be quite in love with Kevin, even jumping up into his lap sometimes.

And that’s about it for here in May.

ok then,

g.
