So at the Autumn equinox eight of us* gathered in a festive spirit at Mara's for a potluck dinner.
Mara's garden includes a fire pit and she has an interest in primitive skills, including firemaking. So we had an experience of fire-making, learning how much faster it is to strike a match! (Isn't this era extraordinary?)
Siting around a fire we ate on our laps. The company was great and the weather mild. As ever with bring-a-plate shared meals, there was an abundance of food. Homemade peach ice-cream never tasted so good. Thanks for hosting Mara.
Ahhhh the Good Life!
* Dy, Wendy, Rob, Jason, Mara and two of Mara's friends Kevin and Luke and me.
