So I’ve learned over the years that I have a hard time sitting still, so reading a book is usually the last thing I want to do. But today a good read with coffee while covered in a plantain poultice seemed fitting to soothe my insane amount of black fly bites. The thing with that type of black fly is that you barely feel them biting you, then after your “quick gallon and a half of blueberries” you realize you are not only covered in dripping blood from your face, shoulders and neck but that blood covered your foot is not from a cut but from a leech sucked onto your toe that’s been squished and gushing blood! .
Yesterday’s adventure of barefoot back woods waterfalls, mushroom hunting and blueberry picking was lovely! Zero bugs til my last minute decision and heart pounding cant pass the berries moment. .
Was it all worth it? Absofuckinglutely!!! .
