How I Spent My Winter Vacation
We could be of two minds about the state of my yard this time of year.
We could say it looks like the worst of the worst in stereotypical "white trash."
Or we could say here are some people who are really living - as much in concert with the earth as suburbia will allow.
It was a perfect, sunny day for boiling sap and hanging out laundry. My only concern is that the smoke from the sugaring fire will make this small load of laundry smell like a campfire ... although, maybe that won't be such a bad thing. I can think of worse things to smell like ;).
Updated to add:
Since it was such a beautiful day, I decided to do a second load of laundry. I had the clothes all sorted by color, and I pondered out loud, "Should I do a load of white clothes or a load of non-white clothes?" To which Big Little Sister quipped, "You should do a load of all purple clothes ... because it would look cool on the line."
I love that girl :)!
