My Inner Cave Woman - Satisfied

Last night was a ground breaking event here at our household.
We cooked meat. OVER FIRE.

Yes that's right - we COOKED OUT!

Why is that such a big deal? Because it was the first ever cook out in our new house. First ever time we cooked meat over fire in a cave of our own. There is something fantastically primal and wonderful about that - isn't there?

Here is what else is great, I sat on the deck of my own backyard looking out into my own forest (yeah that's right, we OWN a forest) and listened to the Earth sing itself to sleep. It was very peaceful and quiet, there was not interwebs bothering me and some part of me could have sat out there all night, if it weren't so feckin' spooky when the sun goes all the way down.
There was only a little wildlife that came out to see me, frogs and bunnies mostly. I got a bunny pic though!

And now for my favorite part,besides the meat and fire.
The frogs. I couldn't get a picture of them because by the time they really got singing it was pitch black in the backyard and forest area and well - I was skeered.
But I took a video so if you turn up your sound you can HEAR the frogs singing!
