However, the main reason why I went to the forest was to collect some items to make a broom.
I think that my special broom grotto is visited by another much like myself. There is a rock balancer who comes here and leaves their little shrines up beneath the boughs of the towering arbutus. They are set upon green moss, or the slate grey boulders that dominate that quiet little corner overlooking WestWood Lake. Today, all those were knocked down and more of the broom was scattered about. It may have been the wind, but I suspect boots of mischief would be a more appropriate guess.
Anyways, I'll be busy the next couple of days, to a week. There are some spells to finish up, some stock to build up, some crafts to play with and pictures to take. I suspect there will be more forays into the wood to gather some of the wood for making boxes and what not, that should keep me busy over the winter.
