Early summer is SO busy!! Everything needs to be done at once. The gardens, mowing, repairs, changing the equipment over from winter duty to summer. Why should I be surprised at our frantic efforts when all I have to do is look around me at the frantic nature of Mother Nature and remember that the old adage, 'make hay while the sun shines' is all about this season. It doesn't help that the flying, blood sucking menace are working to make us as miserable as possible. My neck and ankles sport itchy polka dot bites of various sizes, black fly and mosquito.
On the other side, the happy side, it is time to get the bikes out and hit the trail. Yesterday, we took the afternoon off and biked the rail trail along the shore of Memphremagog. The wind was blowing hard, kicking up waves and making the grasses sing.
Pretty perfect afternoon.
This morning, C is at our local garage with the two small tractor tires. They keep going flat. The big tractor has an air leak in the fuel line, we think. It won't start. The trees that are leaning over and need to be cut, still need to be cut. Gardens need weeding.
The bikes are still on the back of the car. So tempting. Now, where did I leave the DEET?
