side yard

I had the rare occasion of being on an acreage in Strathcona County, where a wonderful family held a farewell gathering for another good friend returning to Japan. Their side yard was full of miscellaneous items -- lumber, old furniture, bits of wood, unused doghouses... all waiting for a new life. Some of the branches became firewood tonight as we gathered around a campfire under the vast Alberta evening sky.
