out the back door,,,
to the left, our little house on the prairie,,,
lake lawtonka on the other side of the hill,,,
i'm fortunate to have this prairie vista all around me,,, 
i walk out the door and there it is,,, if i need 'nature' there it is.  
"we must go out and re-ally ourselves to nature every day. we must make root,
send out some little fibre at least, even every winter day. i am sensible that i am 
imbibing health when i open my mouth to the wind.
staying in the house breeds a sort of insanity always. 
every house in this sense, is a sort of hospital.
a night and a fornoon is as much confinement to those words 
as i can stand. i am aware that i recover some sanity, which i had lost ,
almost the instant that i come abroad. take long walks in stormy
weather or deep in snows in fields and woods, if you would keep your
spirits up. deal with brute nature. be cold and hungry and weary."

our cacti portrait :)  
heart-shaped cacti are everywhere. i brought some closer to the house. :)

  i made some clay plant holders.  i didn't make too many 
because  i want to see how these turn out after firing.  
herbs, grasses or dried flowers will look neat placed in them.  

sunday night dinner - i call this 'glory chili' and homemade sweet cornbread.

wishing everyone a good week ahead!
