Right now, I am...
:: listening to the sounds of breakfast in a busy kitchen full of friends and family.
:: eating some still-warm-from-the-oven granola made this morning by Harper and Papa.
:: feeling full of warmth and appreciation for all the fabulous folks who came out to celebrate Taproot yesterday, on such a glorious spring day in Maine.
:: working on the next issue of Taproot, with much excitement.
:: loving the sounds still on my mind from Friday night's The Head & The Heart show. Amazing, amazing talented people.
:: appreciating the presence of 'visitors' that bring us to all our favorite local haunts, most especially those oceanside.
:: dreaming, still, about the heavenly masala chai chocolate I ate last night from French Broad Chocolates, brought to us by our Asheville friends.
:: plotting a journey south to visit said friends and eat said chocolate.
:: enjoying the tiny bits of maple syrup we have.
:: thinking today we will boil one more time, and then pull the taps from the trees.
:: planning on starting seedlings tomorrow!
:: knitting a whole lot of purple.
:: looking forward to the much-loved post-library visit quiet that we'll share this afternoon, as everyone settles into a new book.
:: treasuring the last moments of our time spent with dear folks and kindred spirits, Ms. Ashley English and her boys Glenn and Huxley.
:: feeling grateful, this morning, for this funny little internet and the ways in which true community is formed on it, and real connections are made from it.
:: wishing you and yours the loveliest of days as you start your week!
