All the good weather is making me slow down and this week I'm having a holiday at home. Eating all our meals outside, siesta in the hammock (!), walks in the forest and the meadows and this charming book to read in the shade. Sophia and her grandmother lie down in a pasture 'Are there ants in heaven?' Sophia asked.
'If you...listened only to the insects, you could hear thousands of millions of them, and they filled the whole world with rising and falling waves of ecstasy and summer.'
