The View from Here

chestnuts roasting

We celebrated the Equinox with a fire in the backyard. In the midst of running children and a wild flashlight, we had a very good time. The stars were out clearly and the growing Harvest moon was very bright. I got some chestnuts at the orchard, slit the peels, and Mike roasted them in bacon grease. He and Roan really enjoyed them, but Willow and I did not. They tasted rather like whole chickpeas, of which I have never been a fan.  Nonetheless, it was a nice experiment and we'll probably repeat it.

Today is chilly and wet and windy, perfect for reading about the Blusterous Day in The House at Pooh Corner.  I'm hoping Mike will go along with my plans for a fire on the hearth this evening.

Mike took this picture while Willow held a flashlight on it. I can remember the first time I tasted chickpeas as a child--this was very similar.

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.
