200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Today I moved rocks.
Just kidding. I'll move rocks when it's cold and I need to do something to warm up. These have been here for quite a long time. Exhibit 1: the tree growing through this wall.
I hear rocks are the only reliable crop at some New England farms. Each year the earth sends up more and farmers have to pick them from the fields. Just like a real harvest.
What I really did today in honor of it being the first all-sunny weekend day this summer was: - walk in the grass in my bare feet - lay in the hammock and read - look at the shapes in the clouds - take a long nap in the hammock.
In other words - I did nothing today. I know I won't be able to sleep tonight and will be tired tomorrow, but I don't care. It appears that sunny weekend days are rare here, so I should enjoy them when they're here!
Yesterday was the warmest it's been all year on the mountain - 79 degrees.
I think looking for shapes in the clouds is a skill I lost when I grew up. I should practice this skill more often!
