Cathy just informed me that she’d never clicked on the sidebar at the left because she didn’t know it was there. She wasn’t aware of the daily tarot draw and the overheard conversational snippet. Webpage design fail! Or maybe those don’t come up when you’re browsing on your phone? Even so, still a page design fail.
Here’s the same tree seen from the dining room window, where I’m sitting with a steaming cup of delicious tea from chaibaba.ca (Thanks Joan, these are great!), watching the redpolls and chickadees empty the feeders.
I’ve been outside once today. There was a trip to the Quonset to put five loaves of bread into the deep freeze; I baked yesterday and this batch hasn’t been spoken for. There was a trudge to the barn to feed and water the three cats, none of which showed themselves, and then a return to the Quonset to fill the cat-food pail for tomorrow. The bird feeders at the oaks needed refilling, as they do every day. They are an army of ravenous beasties, those little feathered ones. And finally Ms Sadie and I made a mile’s worth of steps down the road north and then down the road south. I was indoors again by 10 o’clock and settling in here at the kitchen table to check my email and see what’s happening in the bigger world.
In my world, there is peace and plenty.
Why am I so fortunate, and so many others are not?
Luck of the draw, is it?
