Leaving the Cabin Until Spring

We woke fairly late today, around 9am, although dennisDennis was likely up earlier. He went for a tour of the land while I built up the fire and when he came back we were thoroughly awake. I made them the breakfast that I usually have in the bush, oatmeal and shredded wheat, mixed with nuts and dates and ginger and banana covered with soy milk. I should make a recipe. It makes a solid and tasty breakfast. girls1

Once we were done that, and hung out some more, I began the maintenance which is required for leaving. I turned off the main power switch, screwed shut the blinds and emptied the water barrel by tipping it on its side so the collection of ice and water splashed out on the snow. Then I packed what food remained, and Dennis cleaned my frying pan and I packed the rest of my stuff.

I will be gone until April, but it was great to be in the cabin in the winter. I expected people to cabincome who didn’t but in the end, it was still a good time and although I wished I was there for more writing, I wrote over sixty thousand words, and I am deep into the next installment of Blind Fish. Now I am in the village with the family, although they have gone out to a previous engagement, and I am finishing my cabin blog and consolidating my other writing.

About Barry Pomeroy

I had an English teacher in high school many years ago who talked about writing as something that people do, rather than something that died with Shakespeare. I began writing soon after, maudlin poetry followed by short prose pieces, but finally, after years of academic training, I learned something about the magic of the manipulated word.
