Words on Wednesday.


“When the fiddle had stopped singing Laura called out softly, “What are days of auld lang syne, Pa?”

“They are the days of a long time ago, Laura,” Pa said. “Go to sleep, now.”

But Laura lay awake a little while, listening to Pa’s fiddle softly playing and to the lonely sound of the wind in the Big Woods. She looked at Pa sitting on the bench by the hearth, the firelight gleaming on his brown hair and beard and glistening on the honey-brown fiddle. She looked at Ma, gently rocking and knitting.

She thought to herself, “This is now.”

She was glad that the cosy house, and Pa and Ma and the firelight and the music, were now. They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago.”

― Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House in the Big Woods

photos from last week of Adri with her Pa (my dad), right before we left to go out to breakfast.

    1. Sherry, I read them about once a year :) Somehow reading Little House In The Big Woods right as things get colder is like the best ever.
      You can never be too old for Little House, is what I say!
