Fireside

FiresideWe have been having the coolest weather this almost-Summer, it seems.  It's been dry, really dry, but has only been truly hot for a handful of days.  Yesterday was so cool for the first half of the day that the children were happy to have sweaters on and even wanted hats!  The afternoon was warm, but not overwhelmingly.  The previous day, I mowed the yard at sixty-four degrees.  My only complaint is the dry weather--it has been hard to get the garden going, even with watering every morning (which it is time for me to do).  I keep wishing for an all-day rain to tackle some projects, but it hasn't happened yet.

In other news, Forest Kindergarten starts next week.  We'll go hiking with Becky.  She and I have always had the resolution for weekly hikes, but haven't managed it yet.  This year!  Right?  I am looking forward to being in my favorite places more often.  While it can seem a little silly to drive somewhere to walk around, it really changes the energy to be in the wilderness.  Elk Garden and White Top have been calling to me for awhile.

We had a fire last night, as you can see.  It was an ancient fire log, like a giant firestarter, that I found in my grandmother's basement.  She's always begging me to take things, so I happily did.  It burned a surprisingly long time.  I also picked up a few dozen jelly and pint jars and a railroad hardhat for Roan.  It is so nice to find things we need or want in the surplus of other people.  I'm really trying to live by the adage of "Leaf to leaf, root to root, seed to seed.  May all the we have be all that we need."  And with that, time to water some little plants and wish them well.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
