claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
naomi’s book group read “the box car children”
and then we hosted a box-car-ish sleepover.
picked herbs and lettuce to nibble on,
claimed the old rabbit cage as food-storage-bin
and yes, eliza is wearing a dog harness…
make believe sally prop for her, handy tool for me.
it was a stormy night and we finished off in the basement
with all the wildnerness movies i could find:
the amazing panda adventure,
the wilderness family,
pippi on the run
and grizzly mountain.
and then today…dealing with over-tired kids.
i hate the days after late nights.
renewing for me:
being with friends and
eating a hard boiled local egg
with dill from my new plant.
