Another beautiful day here in the Sound. The smells of spring are in the air. I found my first carpenter ant yesterday, looking rather dazed and confused and wandering aimlessly around the mud room. We still have fires in the morning and at night, but the wood pile is almost gone. I think we will need three cords next year…



Yesterday there was a weird column of smoke that rose up from Deep Bay. I had no idea where it was coming from. By the time we got down there to investigate there was no evidence. I have no idea what it was. Either a full house burned down or a BIG brush pile.
