A Beautiful Day

Gorgeous weather here today. Perfect blue sky, light breezes and a temperature of 70, with low humidity. Who could ask for more?  Happy Mother's Day to all the appropriate people!! Hugs.

SPLAT! That is what I did earlier this week while walking around Autumnwood. We have had some heavy rains lately and there are several muddy spots. Son Nick and I had gone out to spend some time on our property. I specifically wanted to see how the bulbs we planted last fall did over the long, harsh winter. We had planted a bunch by the front gate, on either side. None to be seen. What a disappointment. But lo, and behold, allow the eye to wander around other areas, and there were little clumps and patches of daffodils spread out hither and yon. I think we can guess that some wily squirrel(s) decided to dig up and re-bury the bulbs. Landscaping at its most natural!

Anyway, the splat arrives halfway through our explorations. Put my boot down in a muddy spot, sink a bit and then with a noisy ska-wish, my boot came off as I pulled my leg up. And yes, down I went, in a slow-motion fall, first to knees then slowly down the rest of the way. "Oooof!" Nick came running over and assisted me up, and then we laughed at the mud covering me all over the front. Then a stern lecture from Nick advising an acquisition of boots with laces that can be tied tightly on. And then he found me a walking stick.

Planning stages in the works for our attack on the property this summer. And for barbecues, and possibly an overnight campout. And bonfires.

I can't wait for our first ritual, summer solstice (Litha). Out on our property. It will be Super Natural!

This sound deliciously dirty. It's lovely to hear of a happy adventure from you. I look forward to your clean up and fix up stories of Autumnwood. Litha is not that far away....how in the world does time go by so quickly?
Happy for the positives you have shared. Oma Linda

My friend, I have to tell you, your post really made me smile and I thank you for that. I had a very bad day, with you know who! I have to do some serious meditating tonight. I hate what anger can do to you! Not good!
Much Love xoxox
