The pond is finally beginning to refill, about half full at this point. Hopefully the groundwater is coming back up.

Otherwise, not much going on. Tried to trim some branches back from the driveway, scratching up the UPS truck is one thing….scratching up my boyfriend’s shiny new, black, large, truck….that is another thing! I still need to do more work though, probably from the bed of a truck to really get the branches that need getting (those are for the UPS truck)

Reading a book the other day, about an early attempt at setting a trading post up on the Northwest Coast at the mouth of the Columbia. Very odd sometimes to realize that the center section of this house was already standing at the time of that expedition (1812). Time and age are funny things.
