well I am resurrecting the practise with this post.
It's a short one as I am busy and cannot devote as much time as I would like to this post.
Living in the moment, being fully present and involved requires effort, energy and time.
So to sit and write at the laptop becomes less frequent...hence my daily speedy post on Instagram.
The Dogwood Tree is blooming in the front...
the branches hang over our drive from the neighbours yard and we get to enjoy the waxy blooms.
When I see the flowers I am reminded of peace, harmony and beauty.
Simple creamy white forms that can yield perfection...
grateful for the opportunity to witness and appreciate such beauty.
The tall nodding snowdrops are still putting on a show.
We purchased several packages of bulbs a few seasons ago
they are multiplying and filling the beds our front yard...
(Hope the deer do not like to eat these!)
The broken rake that hangs on the fence has a visitor...
let's take a closer look shall we?
Behold the lowly garden snail.
The vintage crystal door knob looks quite out of place outdoors...
next to the rusted door plate...
on the French door that opens the weathered grey cedar garden shed.
As you can see I've taken liberties with the white themed post!
Oh and I have been shopping!
I have purchased some new white enamel pots.
Our chartreuse Dutch Oven has seen better days...
so it is out with the old and in with the new.
A wee bit of a splurge I know, but well worth it to have decent tools in the kitchen.
I'll be making soup and a stew this week...some to eat and some to give away.
There is illness about ~ some more serious than others...
we are crossing our fingers for a positive outcome but we cannot control it.
"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
~ Lao Tzu ~
"Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides."
Oodles to do before I leave for Paris and so I am focused on tending to those details...
I may be posting sporadically before I leave.
I'll be on Instagram if you want to keep in touch...
Click on the picture at the top right of the blog side bar.
Elizabeth George's first Inspector Lynley book "The Great Deliverance" beckons...
so I'll close for now.
Tell me what you've been up to this past week...
