I love

I love driving early in the morning before the masses head out in their cars.

I love soft golden hue of the morning light, lightly touching the freshly dew’ed up long grasses and bulrushes.

I love the soft golden light as it plays along the freshly mowed hay, light dancing in and around the swells in the fields, the rolls and bales awaiting passage to the farm.

I love the smell of freshly mowed hay in the morning.

I love the sight of golden kissed ripples gently roll across the pond, or the still reflection of the still waters show the glory of the heavens above,

for all who venture forth early and are lucky enough to view the new day before the earth heats up and the sun passes that mystical line, from golden to yellow.

and

I love you for following along with my blog, taking time from your day to read this adventure as it unfolds!
Thank you

Karen emailed with the following info;

I am on a very tight schedule right now. If you want to announce to everyone that if they want to show up … but no Fields of Nutrition, no anything….. $10. I did this for one group already and again on the 2nd of February for another group. If they want the extras… $20… no extras… $10.

One emailed me (from North and West of North Bay who is coming)… I’ll send him a message back …. its fine if people pay there. Please let them know that!! Thanks so much Ed!

Howdy GTA & Durham Region Peeps, Feb 16th, backup 23 following weekend in event of Winter Storms .. see new details just below.

Date change, to get more interest…
Ok.. 16th it is and the 23rd as a back up in the event of a storm/ice.

Karen the Edibles experts info to follow!

* Cost – $20 – this includes a hard copy of Fields of Nutrition, a free PDF copy of Free Food from Foraging, and a (homemade) sample of vinegar because I like to show everyone just how easy it is to make things at home.
* Anyone who comes on this walk and wants to return for a spring/summer walk will pay $15 and at that time will get a free copy of an ebook I am working on now about the pine tree (won’t be ready for about 2 weeks).
* If there is a third walk later in the year, for those who come on the first 2 tours, cost will be $15 and there will be free samples.
* February 9th.
* Location Secord Forest and Wildlife Area:

Secord Drive…. east side of Concession 3 just south of Goodwood Road.

 

* Time… 1pm start until 3 or so… perhaps 4 if there are lots of questions and the weather cooperates.

– In the event of inclement weather the date will be February 23rd. Wild_E and I will determine no later than 11am on February 16 if we need to postpone to the 16th. So please check the forum! before you leave!!!!

I ask for payment in advance. Interac e-bank transfer or PayPal (they offer many forms of payment options). NO REFUNDS. In the event someone does not show up they have automatically reserved themself a spot for the second walk.

If you choose to pay by Interac e-bank transfer then please send payment to my email: k.stephenson@ediblewildfood.com . For the secret question please use… “What is Charlie?” with the answer being “ground ivy” (all lower case). If you use PayPal my account there is karenanne24  (at) hotmail.com.

Day 2 Waking Divergent Journal

Journal Entry Day 2  of Waking (Divergent)

Weird where is everyone?

Waking Divergent a Journal Novella exercise

I woke up or came too sitting in the driver’s seat of my Van. All I remember about that is I woke up fuzzy headed, tired, and wanting to vomit (apparently again, as outside the door was a pile as well as down the front of me!) It was not pretty at all.

Zeldy my Dog was in the back in her sleeping and travelling area with the same problems, vomit and stuff around her, vomit and stuff close to the door. It looks like we have been here doing this for a while. We both climbed slowly out, did our business outside, she walked stiffly over to her water bowl, the one I put under the corner of a car carrier trailer to catch rain water, she drank deeply from the water.

I picked up my near empty 1 gallon jug of water, which was full the last time I remember and took out the last sip. The last sip, what is going on here!
“Awe man”, I was so tired and sick, I just sat back in the seat, she climbed in the side of the van and that is the last I remember until the rain started hitting me on the face.
