“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.”
So why am I talking about camping in this post? The kids decided to camp out last night and we had to check out the camp site. That scout training is part of Jack’s being at this point. Things don’t need to be perfect. He’s great at adapting and luckily found someone special who feels as at one with nature as he does-minus the swimming in the icy lake.
Jay and I can’t stay up very late anymore so as soon as it got dark, we headed home. Jay had to catch up with news of Prince Philip’s funeral arrangements-really! He is an Anglophile to the core and is disappointed that there hasn’t been 24 hour coverage. I guess with Covid things are different.
Before we left, we watched Mike coach the others on his very cool e-skateboard.
So what else is going on today? More bookwork for me. I’m in the homestretch thank goodness.
Yesterday I took a break and walked around taking pictures of our amazing daffodils (and other bloomers!). They have never been more beautiful. Usually, a few pop up and then it snows and freezes them out but this year, with no snow, they have never been more prolific. Here’s just a peek.
We have so many different varieties thanks to my involvement years ago in the Garden Club. Who knew there were so many?
Jay loves to feed the birds and this morning has been entertained by this tenacious squirrel. Really! He eats hanging upside down. Amazing!
Might be time to put these two away for winter. Or not. The reindeer was Jay’s Mom’s. I never met her but feel like she’s here when the little deer is out. What to do?
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
