Well I am back from my visit to the farm, and have spent 2 days settling back in to my unit. After the peace and quiet of "the farm" I noticed the sounds of the city the first night...the sirens, the trucks over on the highway and the cars in the street....even driving to get the shopping there seemed to be more cars than ever compared to out in the country.
I had a very peaceful time, enjoying pottering round the garden, sitting on the patio with the animals, and the sounds of the birds...which is why after a few days my blood pressure was down to a nice normal figure.
Not much has changed, except for the season and a few less trees that were causing havoc with their leaves in the gutters. The older "himself" gets, the harder it is for him to get up and clean them so the trees had to go. There are still plenty left, and the wood pile for next year is growing.
