Today, Myles and I rode with Dad through the green valleys
around our house. It is so beautiful living here in Wisconsin.
I wish my friends in Tuvalu would visit me this summer. I know they would love it here. I could also teach them about foraging for different edible plants up the valley and in the prairie.
The winter might be too cold for them but I think they would enjoy snow shoeing, sledding and even ice fishing too.
This afternoon Mildred and Nellie invited me to go on a picnic with them in the forest. Mildred made a lovely pasta salad, and Nellie brought vegetable chili. They made the food from what they found in the forest, except the pasta, and chili peppers,
and I gave them some of that and our home grown, tomatoes.
Kirby’s dad uses Max and Baxter to take these great, big, dead logs from deep inside the forest, and bring them down, down, down to the bottom of the hills. Kirby’s dad builds all kinds of things out of wood, houses for people, to cute bird houses, and even bat houses! Jazzbat’s home was made by Kirby’s dad.
