I just love this time of year. I really wish everyone could experience one spring in Bethany. It’s so nice. The flowers are starting to come up, the birds are everywhere and sometimes almost deafening (although this is partially of my own doing as my place is like a hangout now because of all the feeders and bird baths), it is the perfect temperature and no humidity- you get a little bit of a sweat while working and then there is a nice cool breeze. And the smell- it is so fragrant because literally everything is blooming. And the grass is so soft it just feels so good between your toes.
At any rate, the house is starting to come together, but still a ton to do and have not even powerwashed or painted the porch yet:
For those of you who are curious, that smudge across the top is one of my fat fucking fingers partially obscuring the picture. Still a bunch to do in the back yard, too:
Also, this birb was at the feeder earlier, and I am pretty sure it is a red-bellied woodpecker which is amusing because it has a red head and a white belly:
Tomorrow Gerald and I are driving around the hills and hollers to find path stones from rock slides.
Also, this was a fun thread:
If each Democratic candidate was a type of cheese, what would they be?
Joe Biden would be individually wrapped American.
Elizabeth Warren would be sharp cheddar.
Bernie would be something like blue cheese because it is super divisive but the people who like it fucking love it
