as kai learns the ins and outs of baking treats and making breakfast, it becomes more and more apparent to me that owen's cooking classes will be taking place around a campfire. a campfire lit by a bow drill. featuring recipes that include skinning and gutting, with an emphasis on spicing up entrails, or marinating beetles as a side dish.
his bow and quiver are kept next to his bed. and he's been repeatedly asking if he can just walk out into the woods behind our house and see what it's like, you know, to just survive. i would be inclined to let him go if i didn't know he would be back in a few hours covered in poison ivy. i think a camping trip needs to be arranged!
typing up this post has inevitably reminded me of this post. if i had fiona's skills (and apparent strong stomach) i could grab a few necessities and head out there with him. we've got plenty of little bunnies around here!
