Wandering: Part 2

A glimpse into our wanderings from the last few weeks:

Beware of the wildlife:
We spotted this rather large male black bear in the neighboring field only a half mile from our land.  The neighbors tell us a sow and her two cubs have been seen in the woods behind our homestead many times...  which led to a lesson (a.k.a.  hilarious reenactment) of what to do if you encounter a bear.

A few wood working projects:  
* Bird feeder
* Sword
* Unknown. "It's a secret Mom."

Collecting plants for medicinal use:
* rhododendron flowers for swelling
* jewelweed for poison ivy

Cold weather kayaking

Discovering little bits of magic all around.

And of course, a lot of knitting.  

* * * * *

p.s.  It's so good to be back in this space.  I can't wait to show you all the fun side projects I've been working on, as well as some new ideas I've been dreaming up for the blog!

p.p.s.  I've listed several new pairs of upcycled longies in the shop!  Enjoy~
