Weekend Reading

19 June 2020

I'm taking a break from posting here and on IG. I'll sign off for now but I'll see you again soon. Thanks for your recent emails and comments. They really do make it more interesting for me.

I hope you enjoy this week's reading.

  7. Thoroughly enjoyed "My Life As A Turkey" video. It was beautifully filmed, narrated, and I learned so much about the wild turkeys that we now have in mid-Minnesota. They were brought here by exchange for MN Grouse. Once they realized that they had to give MN ADULT turkeys to have them establish here, they have "transplanted" beautifully. So much so, that MN has now established a limited hunting season.

  14. Thank you, Rhonda - as a long-time reader of your blog, I so much appreciate what you share here, especially your observations on life as an older woman - they've given me much inspiration and food for thought as I'm at the same stage of life. I look forward to re-reading many of your posts and to seeing you back again after a refreshing break. Love Gracie too - she reminds me of our lovely Scottie Tammy from my childhood.

  23. Take care and refresh you three up there! I'm feeling this week I need a 'restart' button. Our grandchildren already came home with the usual winter cold but my husband caught it despite all the hand washing etc etc and has been most unwell all weekend,but now much improved.We all had the covid test even though there has not been any in our area and were negative but Victoria around Melbourne, has seen an increase, so no desire to go anywhere here. It's winter here so after losing interest for a few days, back to the knitting,quilting and soup. My my best wishes to all your lovely readers in these odd timesπŸ™ƒ
