we find ourselves caught up in the busyness of the summer season - the care for the animals and the arrival of new ones - the ever growing garden, daily pruning and harvesting - the preparations for the year ahead - the beginning of new projects - constructions - the heat - early mornings and late evenings watering, watching, milling - the many popsicles licked and dam dipped in - the almost two-year old adventuring - tractor driving - the thirty-one and twenty-four year olds adventuring - tree climbing - laundry loads - seedlings raised - tiny oak forest - cups of coffee drunk - bottles of kombutcha brewed - crows barked at - escapee ducks - fresh milk moustaches and nasturtiums picked... we resolve for a splendid 2014 - for what will unfold - for plans and unknowns - for more time to stop by here and document for savouring the life so full, wonderful, enfolding us here.
