t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Sparkling Magic

How else could I describe these photos I took last night?

Ellery has a favorite poem:

by Dorothy Alids

The fenceposts wear marshmallow hats,
One a snowy day.
Bushes in their nightgowns,
Are kneeling down to pray.
And all the trees have silver skirts,
And want to dance away...
