Last night we played hooky from our chores. We decided a hike was a better way to spend our evening. The evening was spent gathering sumac seed heads to make lemonade and mushrooms to identify in order to practice what we learned in class on Sunday.
It was an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours. There really is nothing better than being inspired by the natural world. There’s so much color and beauty right before our eyes, we can sometimes forget if we don’t get out to see it. Now that the mosquito population is waning, we hope to spend a lot more time out in the woods discovering what we have. I think the resident Chiots enjoyed herself as much as we did. Now that we’ve found an all natural pain killer for her, she’s back to enjoying longer hikes once again.
