We have been actively enjoying spring's arrival for the past two days. Yesterday we hiked in the woods twice. Once just M,E and myself, and then after class with K and some friends.
We caught a snake.
A biting snake.
We also found a dead snake.
Not a biting snake.
It was a great walk, and to my surprise, we came home tickless. E fell in the water.
It was funny, except for the crying bit.
M's croc floated in the river. Another rockin mom waded out into a chilly, slimy bottomed river to help another Mama out.
Well, she was wearing cropped pants, and I was consoling my muddy headed river falling kid.
M found a cute little pine looking tree. I thought it was a sapling of some fir variety. Pax , our special Earth place friend, told us it was princess pine. A dwarf lichen like variety that beds in moss and spreads out in a carpet like fashion.
We thought that sounded divine, and just what we needed by the creek.
So M, made sure it came home safely. She placed it in a shallow bowl of water to keep it moist. Today she found a perfect spot by the river and planted it.
We hope it spreads like crazy.
My goat still has udder issues. I injected her with antibiotics last night. I thought she was going to lick it, but it's not making any progress. So we'll inject her for the next 4 days.
We rolled huge logs in a circle to create a secret meeting spot. We want to A frame the top with found sticks and create a roof for the perfect effect.
We aim to do it.
next nice day probably...
A is about ready to create raised beds. He has a palate of cinder blocks to be delivered to start the project. I cannot wait to get this garden going.
Today is gray again. We made the best of the morning.
I think we will head to the library this afternoon-K
