Around Oak Meadows

Sunrise this morning. 

Looks like an early spring. Some of the trees and bushes are leafing out. And about half of the goldfinches are gone. My daffodils still haven't come up though. Temperatures are lovely, 50s at night and mid 70s during the day. 

My daughter had surgery last week.  She had a pretty rough first few days post-op but is slowing feeling better.  

I've made the backing for the new quilt and am piecing the batting together from leftover pieces from previous quilts. I hope to have it layered and basted together next week. 

Two very good books going now: Madison: A Biography by Ralph Ketcham and The Gilded Hour by Sara Donati. 

I keep hoping that I will wake up and find that Donald Trump the Republican nominee for President was just a very bad dream.  Who will I vote for if it is Hillary Clinton vs.  Donald Trump?  I suppose Clinton and just turn the radio and television off for the next 4 or 8 years.

My son asked me this week why do we always have a choice between bad and worse? Trump reminds me of Benito Mussolini.

Thanks, Michelle! Every day she is getting more of her energy and stamina back.

Florence, I know that many people just hate geese and if one suffers and dies, all the better as I have heard here on the pond. But I feel strongly about wildlife not suffering and many birds that I have gotten to rehab I knew would be euthanized. It is heartening to hear that one may not suffer and survive. Geese mate for life with divorces being rare. Family groups know one another and this poor goose is away from her family group. We let our milkweed garden grow across the pond and no geese choose to eat there unlike all the other lawns that are mowed and fertilized. Thank you for your support…Some people probably think I am some kind of flower wearing hippie.. but I know the reality…I just hope to change some people’s perceptions… maybe.. OK, I am wearing rose-colored glasses then as my husband says.. :)
