Just a quick hello, “WAQAA!”
I have decided to take a break from sewing until that urgency to make things tugs at me. Its been good weather; rain and shine for greens to come up out of the cold and into summer. I had a good taste of fireweed, beach greens, unknown greens that seemed eatable (still learning and breathing). The other day, during my field work, I had seen blue berries blooming and some cranberry flowers just about to come out. Growing up, we didn’t go to the tundra until the berries were ready. Just a few years ago I have seen with my owns eyes the berry flowers except for the bush berries that grew in our area. We were busy living at fish camp – cutting, drying and smoking the salmon. My first awareness of fish camp was when I was just crawling out our canvas tent and I hear hammering of nails to a new house. Fish camp is a memoriable place for me – its a time to be with family and prepare for winter food – its a beat of my heart that doesn’t go away! I picked some wild rhubarbs with my mom – they are great for dessert – go pick some!
I picked some willow green leaves for the first time – thanks to friends who share their wisdom>
I pray for you to have a safe and blessed salmon fishing. Remember, bugs are small and you can smash them 🙂 Piurci!
