it's been an interesting day today.
lots of new things.
I started off by emptying pretty jars of last year's collection of herbs
and admiring my harvest of a couple of weeks ago.
and recording what would keep, and what had to be bought, collected, or gathered from our gardens.
this is where my head was today.
and I perused my favorite books and planned medicines that need to be made for the coming year.
I climbed up to the roof to gather Mirabelle's for a cordial, and then Trev took over the task for me. he likes the roof. he feels like a Great Explorer, I think.
we began our cordial! can't wait to share some of this warm deliciousness over the winter holidays.
we studied atoms for a while today.
and looked up of what Space is made. (again. we need reminding every so often.)
watched library videos
played computer games
played games in the pool
I worked outside on the herbal
and received pretty visitors while doing so.
talked about pioneers,
life on Mars
life on other planets in the universe
and intelligent life on other planets.
went for a drive to scout for a new favorite beach.
this was our endless quest last year... all summer we looked for a perfect beach, preferably an hour or so (or less) from home. didn't find it.
I'm happy to say that I think we found it today... and will be happily having a Beach Day tomorrow.
haven't done that at all this year!
while we were there we saw pretty dear bounding through a meadow, and a great blue heron.
we found our beach (small, but I think it will do) and came back home to stop at a couple of stores to aid us in getting out of the house at a decent time tomorrow.
it's 11:15, and daddy and Trev were just giggling and howling... looking up mexican hairless cats on the 'net. :)
now they're spying on our house via Google.
you gotta watch out for those two.
