But before we get to that, our solar system is A L M O S T up and running. Actually I'm told that it's running but the monitoring system/software isn't up yet. We're anxious to find out how effective it is.
Thursday after getting home from the office, I jumped on the rig that was already loaded and headed back to Carley State Park...easy, close to home, my proper and selected campsite reserved.
The corn has gone from June-the-definition-of-Green to Brown Green, the result of tassels becoming more prominent and also, the last week or so, some drying of the leaves. We grabbed an ear of John's corn on our place and it's hard dented. Still a lot of sweet corn to harvest, very prominent especially in the area of the State Park since there's a huge packing plant in nearby Plainview. Easily spotted from a distance, the difference between the field corn and sweet corn pronounced. The field corn has almost vertical, brownish tassels. The sweet corn's tassels are much lighter in color, often almost white and look more like Sideshow Bob's in shape.
Bacon-wrapped sirloins once again from my handy convenience store, done to perfection I must say.
For desert, some bannock and a coffee...
Friday morning breakfast, oatmeal and coffee...
I had two spoonfuls of oatmeal left and the coffee cooling when the big drops followed the lightning and thunder so it was back into the tent and I was able to appreciate my large vestibule.
An hour of rain falling on the tent with my favorite (SE Minnesota) radio station....about as good as it gets. I've thought about it in the past but now I believe it's official....my theme song..."End Of The Line".
I guess they call it Leave No Trace. All I left was a shadow, packed and ready to go.
A bright sunny morning along Lake Pepin, almost home.
Well since music came up ...again...in this one, I have to mention something that our dear daughter sent me. She did what I'm told is an Instagram Takeover. All new to me since I've been on Instagram a total of 12 hours now, signed up only to watch what she and hubby Nich had filmed of what I'm going to call, "A Day In the Life Of..". If you like music, there's likely something there for you. If you like cats, then most certainly. If you enjoy healthy plants, you may be disheartened. But take a look anyway. You'll find them, in the Minnesota Orchestra space, Hanna's right there.
