Good Day

And as the sign says “Welcome to Woodstock Md” and a fine sunny day we had. Time for a few days of rain and wind is on the agenda for the weekend. I hear rain is good sleeping weather. After humping that tall ladder today and cleaning gutters along with some other maintenance chores I’m going to need it.

The sound of a happy 4-year-old enjoying our home and company was a great time today in between those other items. And another good reason for a long nights rest.

Woodstock is a great little town to live in. Pretty quiet for the most part and even though they seem to find new property to develop it’s still wooded and beautiful for the most part. Even though the type of homes, excuse me, mansions they have put in do nothing but drive up my already high property taxes.

We love it despite a few quirks here and there. The views, the privacy, and the lack of traffic make it a peaceful day and night. And most of the people are really nice.

I see our bus for the kids no longer comes into the neighborhood and now stops on Woodstock Road. There is an accident waiting to happen where that hill makes an almost impossible stop in time if the bus is picking up kids at our neighborhood entrance and you come over it from Route 99.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It was fun cooking tonight but my back didn’t care for it.
  • Leaving the world a better place than you found it would be a nice thought if everyone could get on the same page.
  • I think the list of rained-out events this weekend is longer than the ones still going on.
  • I’m going to work on 2 to 3 posts tonight and schedule them for tomorrow and Sunday in case we lose power. What am I talking about in case? We lose power every good storm that comes through. It’s just a matter of how long.
