Windjammer Perspective



Good Morning Everyone. 4 degrees below in the dooryard this morning and the full snow moon is casting the shadows of the trees across the snow cover. So for those of you who heat with wood, please grab a mirror and go check your chimney. Clean out the ashes in the basement and take a peek up through to see that the creosote isn’t building up. Or get a qualified professional to take a look for you. ‘Tis the season for chimney fires. As the temperatures are forecasted to stay quite cool here for the next week folks will be stoking the stoves hotter than usual. So just be aware and if you haven’t had your chimney cleaned in a while you might want to give it a look.

Yesterday Kaitlyn and I painted out our little boat Suzanna in the barn with an ambulance call thrown in for good measure. Sawyer came out to give a hand as well. Sawyer was also our staff photographer du jour so he gets today’s photo credits . He loves taking pictures. This morning I was looking through his work and just had to chuckle. Sawyer was a little distressed that the boat was upside down. To his eye, upside down boats just don’t look right, ashore or in the water. Reasonable enough. I feel the same way, especially when they are in the water. So this morning as I am browsing through the photos he took I came to one where the boat was rightside up and knew that couldn’t be right. Until… I realized that in order to make the world conform to his ideal he turned the camera upside down and took the picture. Upon righting the camera the boat and its name looked just right (never mind the saw horse the boat is sitting on or Kaitlyn and I on our heads, we’ll fix that later in Photoshop!). So there you have it, from the eyes of babes, another lesson that life is all just in the way you look at things.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.

  1. Love your comments about perspective and living in the moment. And I love this blog. We just got through our year end, here at work, which means long hours spent behind a computer, handling calls, emails, and orders. These 15-16 hour days were more bearable thanks to your blogs. I love taking a break from work and going to Mardydayland for a few minutes. The pictures are wonderful. Keep up the good work, Cap.
