A glimpse into our wanderings from the last few weeks:
Beware of the wildlife:
We spotted this rather large male black bear in the neighboring field only a half mile from our land. The neighbors tell us a sow and her two cubs have been seen in the woods behind our homestead many times... which led to a lesson (a.k.a. hilarious reenactment) of what to do if you encounter a bear.
A few wood working projects:
* Bird feeder
* Unknown. "It's a secret Mom."
Collecting plants for medicinal use:
* rhododendron flowers for swelling
* jewelweed for poison ivy
Cold weather kayaking
Discovering little bits of magic all around.
And of course, a lot of knitting.
* * * * *
p.s. It's so good to be back in this space. I can't wait to show you all the fun side projects I've been working on, as well as some new ideas I've been dreaming up for the blog!
