Here in the mountains of NC we have 4 seasons. I'm thinking for me personally, I have lots more than that! Seems like I get thru one and when I think it's going to be ok, I start thru another. I know that's life tho. To everything there is a season
Some seasons are so hard to bear. Like the extreme cold of winter and the extreme heat of summer. I much prefer Spring, when the temps are more to my liking, everything is starting to put out and bloom, a renewal of life and Fall, when the temps cool down, there seems to be a calm about things. But we wouldn't have those two without the others.
I received this in my email box the other day and it was just what I needed so I thought I'd share it with you.
So, enough of that.
My husband has been getting some squash from his vines. I fried some to go with our dinner yesterday. Yummy. I don't fry a layer at a time, I just throw it all in the iron pan and fry it up with some corn meal!! I saw the green tomatoes on my husbands vines and that got me to thinking about some fried okra. mmmm. Gotta get some this week.
We've enjoyed our porch this year. Always a nice breeze going. We sat there this afternoon, chatting, watching the hummingbirds fight. There is one male in particular that will sit down below the yard in a tree, watching and if another gets near the feeder-which is hanging on our porch-he is up there is a flash, letting them know he is king of that feeder! It would be fun to have a slow motion camera so I could see what he actually does when he does this. They are fast!
The katydids have been singing their song. I love hearing them.
All in all it's been a good day. I'm thankful for that.
