100 Words for Snow

Today is our six year Anniversary. We spent the weekend hanging prayer flags at the head of our new Hugelkultur beds and gathering firewood up in the mountains. The kids collected pine cones to be dipped in wax for fire starters and made cardboard race cars to race through the house on windy days. We milked the cow, closed up the stall for our new boar, picked up some new hens, moved hay, and stacked firewood. It was a great weekend. And although today is the actual day of our Anniversary, we don’t have much planned except to just be together, as a family. Six down, sixty more to go.

“I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.”
