~ While we were on our little trip, we took a hike. I was super proud we not only found it, but managed just fine without The Thinker. Although, truth be told, the trail wondered right next to a major road, it is not like we would have gotten lost. And, it just didn’t feel right hiking without The Thinker. We are officially halfway through our little separation. Our trip was a celebration of the fact that The Thinker will not be force reduced when he returns from his deployment. It is a huge relief to know he will have a job when he returns from the Middle East. Please keep the military in your thoughts and prayers, because not everyone will be so lucky. I cannot imagine coming home to no job. It is hard enough to re-assimilate into a non-war environment, but to add the stress of finding a new job, and relocating… hmmm.
~I have decided Queen Ann’s Lace is one of my favorite wildflowers. I intend to have it in my forever garden someday. For now, I enjoy it in the meadows and along the roadsides.
~There is something about taking a walk in the woods at dusk. It feels fairytale like when the sun glitters on the wildflowers, and the forest floor shimmers in their presence.
~ I am enamored with wildflowers, and because of the unusual weather across America they seem to be in abundance everywhere.
~What we are working on… We have three weeks until we begin school again… so, scheduling and finalizing curriculum. Stocking our freezer full of fresh farmer’s market produce. It is always thrilling to open the freezer door in January and to pull out blueberries for a crisp. And, my Etsy shop is up and rolling with a couple of sales, woohoo! I’ll also be announcing a giveaway on my Facebook page soon. Be sure to like my page for updates. Hop on over and take a look at both sites… you can find a link on the right margin of my blog… look for the little F, and the Etsy shop.
