The first order of the day was of course to put up our Pinwheels.
When Trevy woke up he and I looked on the International Day of Peace website and read about the ideas and happenings for the day, and about the history.
Maddie and I took a trip to the library to pick up a few treasures.
With our new library totes, of course.
Which Madd was thrilled about.
After a bit more Business
(during which I had time to contemplate my life at the moment), I realized I was sooo ready for a day in the natural world (seems that often after a day of concrete and flashing lights I'm desperately ready for a day in the woods). Eric graciously gave up his fishing day so he might tote around his Beloveds, instead.
The first stop was our ski resort... when we drove up the canyon and got near Solitude, the babes started clamouring to explore their runs with their feet... racing up and down grass and soil where there is usually snow was a verra exciting business.
Mama got to collect mullein flowers for some medicine making. Also very exciting.
Up up up we go.
Over the pass,
and eventually we made our way to one of our favorite spots-- particularly in Autumn-time.
Many times when we play here we find interesting things... snakes, beaver lodges, interesting birds...
We eventually found one lonely caterpillar,
but it didn't matter.
The time was spent running (we were the only ones there)
and playing make-believe
and finding dinosaur teeth
And eventually we find ourselves back at our home
it is enough.
Tomorrow is Mabon!
We'll see you then.
