Said my 12 year daughter. Was that music ? Yes, indeed. We can make such a mess at Christmas and it seems like Spring cleaning is needed to get the house back into shape. The tide came in and just went out again ( my sons) ~~~ I love thinking about the ocean in the middle of winter. It is more about the liturgy of the tide. ....coming in at a certain time and going out at a certain time. I just have to have food IN the house for when it comes in. Ham bone is in the stockpot simmering this afternoon.
