evening and morning walk.



the weekend was a great balance of things, hard work k. and i created another pasture and trimmed all along the houses, we had great afternoon snack of fresh strawberries, cheeses and hibiscus ice tea with a man who came to cut some of the fields, he told us a bit more of the history of this place which i soaked up. later on, early evening we went for a walk, looking at what had been cut, the wild flowers that are emerging and the birds. then we got dressed up, my mother came down the stairs looking so beautiful and graceful i could have worn a paper bag no one would have noticed me, then we headed into williams town for an incredible indian meal, walked along the town spotted some famous people who were in town for a play and spotted two great Pyrenees. the  night ended on the porch watching the fireflies flicker all around us as my mum said they were like mirrors to the stars.

this morning we went for a walk at the tropical conservatory and as we entered this is what we read

listen
It is easy to overlook the sounds that are all around you.  depending on the time of day, the season of the year, and the weather, there are many things you may hear.  birds like the red-winged blackbird and the black-capped chickadee are common singers in the marshlands.  on the summer and fall, insects like the cricket create an incessant buzz.  raindrops can patter on leaves.  sometimes in the winter, the only   sound is the creaking of the trees as they sway and rub against each other.

i am so greatful that k stayed home today, he has only been home a handful of days since we moved  and to see him enjoy it here as well as mum makes me very happy

You live on a beautiful piece of land. And I love your mother's firefly quote. It sounds like poetry.

Oh if I could deal with long winters I would be so very green with envy! I keep saying this mantra over and over to myself: One day I will have a farm.

Your life looks so beautiful and so rich with the good things.
