Walks of Cold and Walks of Warmth with Sun Shadows of Selfie Treasures

April 30 2019:

Sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Beautiful. But. Brrrrr …. Cold!!

May 2 2019:

Lillian and I visited the Wilbur May Arboretum this afternoon. So incredibly peaceful. Such beauty. Squirrels, robins, butterflies … quiet … What a treasure …. 💜💜💜  Amazing shadows too. The sun posed beautifully!! Loads of fun playing with photographing the sun! 

Every time I went to take a picture, the camera was reversed. I figured it must be trying to tell me something, so I took lots of selfies!! That’s the most solo selfies I’ve taken in a years time!! I’ve taken enough solo selfies to last the rest of the year! Ha! ….. We ran into a photographer looking for butterflies. She found us instead! And took a few photos of us! Ha!

Sensed it in My Bones

April 29 2019:

It was the long walk today. What a beautiful walk it was. Light, free, joyful. Listened to the birdsong. Felt the warmth of the sun and the lovely breeze. Smelled lilacs. Tasted my true self. Sensed newness in my bones. What a beautiful walk it was.

Sun Wishes

Went for a walk
Made a wish
Drew in a breath
Pursed my lips
Blew the wish
On waves of wind
To the loving
Embrace of the sun.

Having fun with these dandelion photos! Just love em!

Goodbye Dreamcatcher Friend

April 28 2019:

The only earrings I’ve worn for the past 6 or 7 years. Seriously, no others have been worn during that time.

They’ve always been deeply special for me and they’ve always held a beautiful energy. Mom and Frank got them for me in New Mexico about 7 years ago.

I lost one this past Tuesday. I had put them in my bag and one must have been caught on my keys when I pulled them out.

Change, shifting, something is definitely occurring. There’s this loss of a special earring and what I’m letting go of on Wednesday, the 4th.

I will miss you dear earring and sad you are with me no longer. Yet, I’m feeling an interesting and tingly excitement for what’s to come.

The sole earring that remains will become a part of my alter. And on occasion, I may just wear one earring. What the heck! 💙💙💙

Movie Night: Casablanca

April 27 2019:

Team TLC movie night – Thomas’ choice: “Casablanca” – We’ve seen this once before. Thomas wanted to see it again.

Thomas says, “It was good and I like the ending as usual.”

Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, and I liked Ilsa’s style.

I say, “Always enjoy watching this. So glad Thomas wanted to see it again.”

Thomas and Camilla April 2019 Date Day

April 27 2019:

Thomas and Camilla April 2019 Date Day – First stop – Kids on Big Rigs 2019

Thomas had a blast shooting water from the bag the Forest Service guys use (forgot to ask what it’s called)!! I may have done it too!! 💦 💦 💦

That handcar is a workout!! Couldn’t get a picture of us on there as my hands were busy! 😜 It was uphill on the way back! Whew! His favorite was the emergency radio vehicle!

Second stop – An appetizer and soup at Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno.

Organic blue corn chips with amazing salsa and guacamole! Chayote chowder for me and totally tomato for Thomas. And look at the gorgeous salt n pepper shakers! My dream house! Ahhhhh …

Movie Night: Harvey

April 26 2019:

Team TLC extra movie night. “Harvey” – A yearly tradition around Easter for the past 5 or 6 years. A little late this year as I forgot to reserve it at the library.

Why a tradition at Easter? Well. One of the main characters is a 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit! Ha!

I say, “I adore this movie. Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal!! My favorite quote from the movie is by Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart) … “I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and with whom ever I’m with. My mom used to say to me, ‘In this World you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.”
Another favorite quote by Veta (played by Hull) … “I don’t want my brother to be normal. I don’t like those people.” You’ll have to watch it to get this one.

Thomas says, “It was good, as usual. I like the music. Especially the music for the scenes with Harvey.”

Lillian didn’t want to watch this year so we watched it while she’s at The Romano Duo’s place.
