My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Make the Earth Green

Here's the Kid's writing assignment for today. It was "write a poem about your favorite thing".... and he chose a topic that he thinks about all of the time. I wouldn't have made the same word choices, but I am still amazed at his writing skills, and his complete devotion to helping people understand that we need to do better things for the Earth. He's trying to find a way to get even more people to understand, but hasn't hit on anything yet.

Anyway, I'm sure he'd appreciate any positive comments about his poem.

Deep down in me
in my heart full of glee,
there's nothing more
that I loved before
than to make the Earth green.

Turn the brown skies blue today
and the grasses green with gay
with you to help
c'mon! Let's yelp!
"Let's make Earth Day everyday!"
