A thoroughly delightful day

Ah, got up at my own pace today, piddled on the 'puter a while, then rounded up some stuff and headed for the woods with Sassafras. She was a very good dog, and we had fun.

I built a simple plank bridge over a streamlet that flows from one of the springs to the creek. Then I humped up the hillside with iron fenceposts and a post driver (oy, were they heavy!). We're not fencing the property line as it goes up the side of the hill, but the wooden stakes that defined it needed to be replaced with more permanent posts. I looked in on Fuji's grave and said a prayer.

Sassy was tuckered out and very wet from the creek, so we went home. I got cleaned up and finished folding/hanging the laundry. When collinsmom got home, we got ourselves ready and went back out to Wilderstead to wander about and dream. Ended up at the cabin for a romantic interlude (cover the chillun's eyes, Martha!). Ah, tender words, tender moments. We are greatly blessed. Left at dusk.

Now, I'm just chillin' out for the rest of the evening.
