We are having a great time with family in Maine. The weather has been very favorable. Every other day we run into another family member or friend in these tiny woodland towns. We have had some fun with these unplanned reunions. This week we went to my Dad’s church with him and my stepmom for Father’s Day. Yesterday we went to the Common Ground Fairground for Farm & Homestead Day. We watched a blacksmith at work and got a paper-making lesson. We had delicious fresh made and foraged food. Sweet clover is really a wood sorrel, and the heart shaped leaves are sweet and sour yummy. My grown son learned how to use a scythe to cut hay, and we watched a window glazing lesson. Today he is out on Grampy’s woodlot with an axe.
I have been painting every day. If you would like a painted postcard from Maine, email your address to Lucy.firstname.lastname@example.org
