Winter means

Lots of fires.

Very frosty mornings.

Warming up in front of the fire after a bath.

Wearing woolly scarves.

Lots of pumpkins.

Things that would be cool to make with the kids

from Mini-Eco

from recycling at school

from Almost Unschoolers

I wonder if this would work with bamboo?  Saw it here.

These are some ideas I want to remember.  I especially like the pop stick river houses.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

And success is…
To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
false friends;
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)

Thanks Peta, I had to copy this quote.  Such a good one!!
