Sometimes the sun shines bright after a long dark season so you drop your to-do lost and everyone goes to the woods. Together.
And when you do you find so many treasures that your hearts and your pockets are filled to overflowing long before you make it back to the house.

You always find the coolest things!!!! I want to go into the woods with you guys 🙂
I also found three deer ticks (attached. to me.) if that balances the score any! 🙂 But yes. Today was epic for treasures.
It look like an arquelogical trip.
When I saw the first picture on my screen I held my breath. And I love the rest, too.
You’re talking about saying yes and dropping lists again and again so that I thnk when does she ever get to do things. But then I think man, she can’t say it often enough, that yes. That yes to the children. To nature. To life. To what really matters.
Love to come here and get reminded again. Though, I need it less, sun comes in here often these days and reminds me enough. Out there a lot. Love.
I say yes when I can and squeeze in the to do list during the time that remains. I’m buried in work right now, so this yes came after a morning spent at the computer, working every so hard to catch up. Thank you for your beautiful comment.
Looks like an exciting day. I remember how magical it was just to find those little snails as a girl, never mind all those other amazing treasures!
What animal do the skulls belong to?
The first one looks like a raccoon and the narrower one I believe is an opossum.
Wow! Those snail shells are so cool! Where they found all together like that?
Your post – this one – and recent others about the change of season reminds me of a poem…
Wendell Berry, “Sabbaths 1998”, IV
The woods and pastures are joyous
in their abundance now
in a season of warmth and much rain.
We walk amidst foliage, amidst
song. The sheep and cattle graze
like souls in bliss (except for flies)
and lie down satisfied. Who now
can believe in winter? In winter
who could have hoped for this?
Beauty. Thank you Sarah!
They were! All tumbling out of the hollow, coiled bark of a rotted birch tree.
It still feels that way!
