Ever so slowly. She was smelling sweeter yesterday too. I personally think she has been a little off colour. She has had other symptoms indicating a heath struggle. But she is improving. It may be that because they are eating the grass so low now that she ate something she should not have. The fields have been checked and I did find a few baby hemlocks popping up. Gone now. Though as a rule a cow would not eat them, it is hard to get them to eat the good weeds.
Some people in town were on a tree chopping mission which is miserable for the trees but means firewood for us in another year, or s,o once it is dried. In fact these trees were on a property previously owned by is family so there was familial determination not to waste the trees chopped down by the new owners of the property.
We hate to see any tree go down and have never had to cull a tree for firewood yet. All our wood comes from opportunist gathering after other people have called in the tree choppers. Better that the trees keep us warm than end up as ignoninious wood chips. There is an equation I have not made: green house gases released by rotting woodchips compared to a well managed fire. The father was discussing it the other day but we have not come to a conclusion yet.

Did you notice that the lilac behind the little magnolia has also lost its leaves. We are having very strong winds yesterday and today. Bendy Tree days. It will be interesting to see what our View is tomorrow.
The low temps are not accurate as I did not reset the maxi/mini the day before yesterday. However if nothing else it does demonstrate the extremes in temperature changes we can experience in 48 hours.
Good morning everyone. I hope you are having, or have had, a lovely weekend.
My word count is still growing. Nanowrimo with its lack of rules is a wonderfully free medium to work within. However I do think that my actual writing is improving. Many of you have asked when will you see this book. Well it really is just the draft of a book. Much of it is indeed exploratory. There is a lot of blocking where I have just set down a part of a chapter, then gone quickly to the next one before it all falls out of my Paddington Bear head. There is a terrific amount of dialogue. I shall begin the rewrite, I would like to call it an edit but it will be a rewrite, on January 1st, using the same daily schedule. So sometime next year I may have a few passages ready for reading but the book, as books do, will take some time. In fact I am not even sure what the ending will be yet but that is the beauty of Nanowrimo, I am given permission to just forge ahead and see what happens.
Have a lovely day.
