When we set up the bird feeding station I set up a new perch for me.
A couple times a day I sit and look out at the back yard. I write in my journal. I check my lists. I read.

Usually I have a beverage of some sort. I always use a straw. When I found glass straws I was very pleased. These are dishwasher safe. I bought eight so I could use them when company came over. They are clear glass.

Sprite was sweet to share her recipe for Bannocks. I printed it and decorated it and placed it on a recipe stand. Such a nice addition to August.

My husband said he noticed when I go to the grocery store I often come home with notions. He is right.
I shop at Nature's Pantry. They carry nice things. Last week they had the large wood combs and a round brush with natural bristles.

It is the little things in life that give me pleasure.
It is the kindness of others that inspires me.

We are watering.
My husband is moving the sprinklers today.

Once again it is 100 degrees.

Once again we need rain. "Please to have a pop-up."

Dearest Q~

I am so honored that you printed up my recipe, thank you for sharing that.

You are so precious and so dear. Thank you for being such a good friend to me. I feel deep gratitude in my heart and soul for you. What luck it was that we crossed paths, a serendipitous event indeed.

We need to water today too. My house is hotter than it has been all summer. I don't know if it is indeed hotter, or if not closing the blinds added to the heat. Whew.

Today, I went out with a friend, and spent hours talking. It was such a lovely day.

I am in that place where I know something is changing, along with the seasons. While my health has been challenged with asthma this past couple of months, I feel that it is going to get better.

I always feel like starting up my healing practice again at this time of year. Today I spoke of it with my friend who is also an MD, she encouraged me to consider the possibility. So, perhaps I will set up the space again, act as if - and see how I feel.

It's a good feeling to have a plan.

Blessings to you~

Dear Sprite,
We are kindred spirits! I am ever so charmed by you and all you share.
Being with you in this realm is delightful. I look forward to your comments. You put song into my heart.
After so many days of heat I think the house never gets to properly cool down. The break was nice just not long enough!
Every morning I light a light for you. I breathe and send breath. It is a meditation I do for my friend, Sprite.
I support you and your plans. Your practice is needed. So many feel pain.
Do know every time someone reads your precious words, love and light goes forth.
"Act as if" ... yes, we step forward.
