Welp, a week away at conservation camp and I come home to find out the new fallout installment will be set in West Virginia. Not only that but in one the trailers it shows the ruins of a building less than a 20 min drive from my house.... take it away John!
A long winter with a late spring has finally come. And the maddened race for sunlight amongst the plants has begun. No longer is the land of ice and snow. For now the herbs and saplings begin to grow. The birds are out and about building nests for their young. And the squirrels preparation for winter has begun. The wind now blows in from the east. To bring rain to water the wild feast. The deer have begun to give birth unto their young. Birds in love go about making sure their odes never go unsung. For now finally at last. The months of life has finally surpast.
Today has been a busy day like, now a days all I can bare to cognitively do is water my crops at night. But it won't be day for much longer, winter will come before we know it. The lush forest canopies will become skeletons of their former and future selves. The world will be bleak and cold, only pines and hollies will break the constant brown...but that will come in time, not all of a sudden, but surely that sand will escape our hands and the bleak will come and go, so will the tides change. Over an over until those crops are done being water, and like all its time for harvest.
Hehe, there's gonna be a heat wave tomorrow of 60 degrees as aposed to the 20ish temps I've been having lately. Perfect day possibly to finally boil the skin off my deer skulls :D, sadly I couldn't do it two weeks ago cause I had the flu on the weekend making me miss my opportunity.
welp, today I drug a metal sink out of a valley in sub freezing temps. Was about a 2 mile hike to it and back all the way up in a head of the valley. Reasoning for why it was there, there's a delapidated house that supossedly was abandoned nearly 50 years ago, an over time the road to it has washed away and been covered by a couple rock and mud slides. I had to go threw what's best described as a marsh with my rubber boots nearly sinking below the ground (bout 1 1/2 ft) and thick brush. And I couldn't go around along the hill side to it because of steep rock cliffs. Why go threw all this trouble for a sink? Well i plan on using its metal to make a medevil battle helm.
On an irl note, I make voodoo dolls. Out of thread or cloth, whether sowing or wrapping. It always gives me satisfaction when I'm done. But while I'm making it I'll always give it one flaw, like a bigger arm than its counterpart, a scrawny leg or two, or uneven eyes. But it gives me a thrill to look down into their button or charcoal stained eyes. Knowing of their flaw and reflect it apon myself and think of my better design. Tho it to has flaws, just not as bad as the ones I have given to my creations made in my image.
Schools back in session...highschool was destroyed in flood, now sharing the middle school with middle schoolers and it like jamming 2 cans of sardines into one :/. Cross country starts tomorrow, so that's a plus...I was the only guy that signed up, normally a guy would be ecstatic but not me.
Just took a couple weeks worth of a break of cc, there was flooding here so naturally there was a lot of devastation. But as a whole it was kind of a good thing. I've never seen a community come together to whether it was to make food deliveries, clean up, gutting houses, clearing debris, ect. Almost everyone helped out tramendosly, an it of course made a persons heart swell with pride to even be able to say that that they are apart of such a community....now I'm wondering what has happened to cc's community...
