Moonlit Walk With Thomas

**THROWBACK POST**

November 22 2015:

Just back from a moonlight walk with Thomas. Thomas laid down flat on the ground to look at the ducks in the lake, being so quiet. He inspired me to lay flat on my back and gaze up at the moon. Then he joined me and we both had our eyes on the moon.

AWE Inspiring, Peaceful, and Beautiful …. xoxo

Love and Beauty and Fun

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day

November 21 2017:

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day –

First stop: Washoe Lake. I’ve only been here maybe two other times with no wind. How gloriously beautiful.

I truly needed a deep dose of Mama Gaia today and this was perfect for grounding and processing.

Thomas walked barefoot and dug in the sand. It was perfect for him too. He and Lillian had a huge argument as we were readying to leave.

I sat down, took off my shoes and socks, and slowly buried my feet and hands in the soft, cool sand. I was instantly relaxed and brought into this wonderful moment with Thomas. It’s difficult to even find the words to describe.

Last stop: Ice Cream!! Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Nog for Thomas and Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Chocolate for me! Of all the flavors I’ve ever tasted here, the Coconut Mint tops the list now! Love the texture and flavor – tastes like a Jr Mint candy, only better! We ate our ice cream with the amazing view at Audrey Harris Park.

Thomas also had a half sandwich and I had a cup of potato salad and macaroni salad.

Team TLC Thanksgiving 2017

November 23 2017:

Ever since The Romano Duo moved, Team TLC doesn’t have the more traditional Thanksgiving food; except for a few yummies – pumpkin bread, homemade cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and green bean casserole.

I have Thomas and Lillian make a list of what they’d like to eat and that’s what we have. Pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie are on Lillian’s list along with other goodies. Green bean casserole and cranberry sauce are on Thomas’ list. I’m vegetarian and no one else likes turkey. So, whew!

I’m about to put together our snacking platter of chips, dips, olives, pickles, hummus and we’ll have the other goodies for dinner.

I am deeply thankful for our wee homegrown, do it how it suits us, Team TLC day of giving thanks. xoxoxo

Hot Sauce Spices Up Life

**THROWBACK POST**

October 19 2015:

And then there was this tree. We made gratitude lists tonight and discussed them. Thomas listed “hot sauce”. I said, “Tell us about the hot sauce Thomas.” He says, “It spices up life.” I think Thomas and Lillian both need a shirt with “Hot Sauce” on it. They sure spice up my life. Here’s to Hot Sauce!

Oh!! And his duck friends came back to hang with him. They even got out of the water to come closer. So funny as we don’t feed them.

It’s been several days since I’ve been for a walk. I was brought to joyful tears during a quick walk this morning. Joy for the love that Mother Nature so freely shares and that I felt so deeply this morning. Incredibly grateful for the Amazing Grace of Nature.

Big Washoe Lake this afternoon. Oh my gosh! It’s dried up!! I had no idea as we haven’t been here in about a year! Barbara told me on Friday that it was all dry and we just had to go see for ourselves.

He dragged this huge tree limb into the lake and it was his boat for about an hour. It was beautiful watching him sail his boat to the middle of the lake. Love, love, love.
