I’m on a “rain is nice” theme lately. Armed with a proper raincoat and gum boots make it easier. Not loosing my balance anymore on slippery dirt underfoot helps too. A change in perspective might be helping the most. Seeking the solitude of an empty path or the coziness of mittens and knitted hats make me more likely to notice the pleasant elements of life in a rainforest. Today, for instance, gathering things along a walk through the neighborhood I am pleased to find wet branches are bendy and perfect for wreath making. Here’s what I picked up.
After a little wrapping and weaving I wound up with three little wreaths to bring in some natural holiday cheer.
This little excursion might finally initiate that visit to the cobbler I’ve been putting off too. These boots have had their fair share of abuse in the name of woods walking!
