I Love Long Weekends
I wish every weekend could be a three day weekend!
On Friday afternoon, I canned about three quarts of tomato sauce with tomatoes from our garden using Amy’s recipe.
On Sunday, I finished two sewing projects for swaps, which I will show you in my next post, after I finish sewing the label onto the mini quilt.
On Labor Day, we went hiking on one of my favorite trails which is only about 20 minutes from our house.
We lucked out with a gorgeous sunny day. Check out this cool hollow tree we are always mesmerized with.
It’s so huge that I could hide in it!
This is my favorite part of the trail because it’s so peaceful, yet it reminds of that Stephen King book The Girl Who Love Tom Gordon, about this young girl who gets lost in the woods.
We saw lots of beautiful wild flowers, pretty fields of flowering weeds, and this butterfly busy on a thistle.
There are a couple posts along the trail with poems on them that I always love to stop and read, reflecting on the moment.
At the end of the trail, we always look forward to resting at this warming cabin, a great place to warm up around the campfire if you’re skiing or snowshoeing in winter.
