I added a roof to my shelter on day 2 of my trip – I made it as steep as I could, so it could offer me good protection against the rain and snow. I first built the internal framework of the roof using wood and natural cordage – made sure it was sturdy enough and then added leafy branches and pine tree branches (acting as roof shingles) on top of the framework. Soon rain started and the roof I built proved its efficiency. It provides effective protection against light rain.
Avocado toast recipe – I made some simple bread and added avocado spread, tomato cherries, walnuts, spinach leaves, and sunflower sprouts on top. Avocado spread – crushed garlic, avocado, chopped green onions and dill, lemon juice, olive oil, salt/soy sauce, spices.
After I finished eating, the rain stopped and allowed me to have a pleasant walk home. The singing crickets and the silver moonlight made the trip even more enjoyable.
Don’t know if you ever had a feeling that everything happens right on time – this happened to me many times when I went camping – a heavy rainstorm, that turned into a snowstorm overnight, started only after I was close enough to a shepherd’s cabin, or the rain started after I almost finished my shelter/setting up my tarp, or I finally found a shepherd’s cabin after hours and hours of walking, just before it got dark outside, or I arrived home just in time for spending New Year’s Eve with my family after I had almost lost hope I could get back on time (lost my way in the mountains on that trip), and I could think of many more examples, but I will stop here. I always felt protected and taken care of. There were moments on the way when I lost faith or had dark gloomy thoughts, but they were always chased away by a new ray of hope that was born into my heart, a prayer, or a warm memory of my loved ones I brought to my mind and focused on. If this ever happens to you, remember, you just need to hang in there a little longer, the storm will pass, salvation is just around the corner. Or as Elder Sophrony of Essex used to say: “Stand at the brink of the abyss of despair, and when you see that you cannot bear it anymore, draw back a little and have a cup of tea.” A good night’s rest also helps a lot. Join me for a cup of tea, my dear friends!
