::at the airport waving to the planes before take off this very early morning.
and arriving home all of the bits and pieces of life are presenting themselves to me, the to do lists and farm chores. we have over 50 gallons of sap to boil this weekend which is a record here at the new boil pit (some of the sap belongs to friends). we have onions to plant, greens to start and i would really like to sit and plan out some flower gardens for the new beds rick made me last fall. it will get done all in good time, i am sure.
::flowers from this past summer...i hope to have lots more this year!
tonight though it was beyond lovely to have our food again. to see a five gallon bucket that is almost half filled with fresh, yellow, yolky eggs, to eat as family around our table, to put the boys to bed in our giant family bed. i am excited to return to our crazy life which is more scheduled than i thought. i am excited to play outside in the cool weather wearing my favorite hat.
::here are the boys at a fountain in the palm beach zoo...they did get wet!
and now i am excited to crawl into that giant family bed with a good book...
