"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string." L.M. Montgomery
It’s been a busy week. We are all happy for the three day weekend. This afternoon, Tony took the kids over to the campsite to visit the mosquitoes and to clean up some branches and brambles that were strewn hither and yon. He also wanted to teach them how to make a good campfire. Tony is good at making fires. . .and at bringing them back to life after they have been banked overnight. I, meanwhile, threw together some “Scout Stew” packets so the fire making lesson would conclude with dinner. In and amongst this, Victoria made (from scratch) eclairs. No lie. They were delicious. Alas, we scarfed them down too quickly for me to photograph them, but she plans to make more. I think I’ll keep her.
