one need not look too far afield to glimpse these special gifts that cross our path.
Embracing the positive, simple things in life, keep me grounded and content.
If I get on the "I want this, I want that" tangent
I am not at ease...stress and anxiety are sure to follow.
getting back to nature
taking time for peaceful pursuits
mindful healthy eating
valuable self care tools
that really nurture and feed my soul.
"Highlights" worth sharing from the past weekend...
Pender Island, BC
a lovely walk with an abundance of natural beauty.
Lady Slipper Orchids
A bench on which to sit and pause...
count my blessings
while surveying the views across The Salish Sea....
The Nature Sanctuary at Medicine Beach
we were there for the Earth Day beach clean up.
Fresh radishes from Raven Rock Farm stand
at the Farmers Market
love these "red ravishing radishes"
Speaking of red...here is the Encore Red.
We went to the award winning Sea Star Vineyard for a wine tasting...
we purchased some red and white wines.
We invited our neighbours over for a drink and a nibble...
Sitting on the deck later watching the sun slip behind the mountains
taking note of the light
the subtle changes
of the intensity and tones.
The sunrise and sunsets are the gentle rhythms
that guide us through our days here at Quarter Deck Cottage.
Hope that your week is off to a gentle start...
Enjoy the gifts as they present themselves to you on your daily round.
