Lillian and Camilla March 2018 Date Day

March 29 2018:

Lillian Darnell and Camilla March 2018 Date Day – 1st stop:

Lunch and dessert – Parmesan fries for Lillian followed by a yummy iced shortbread bunny cookie!

Roasted potato and garlic pasta for me followed by a vegan gingerbread cookie! That potato was delicious!! And the gingerbread cookie was the perfect sweet and spicy treat to follow the garlic pasta. Sigh!! Yum!!

Next: Smelling yummy soaps. Lavender mint and coconut milk. Smelled incredibly delicious!!

Last stop: One of our favorite parks. Reading first with this amazing view and then going for a beautiful walk.

Beauty and Feelings and Emotions and Nature’s Art Show and Amazing and Fun and Snow and Bright Blue

March 12 2018:

Team TLC sunset walk. Incredible variety of beauty by way of colors, clouds, ducks, coots, the sun, and dried mud. And this wee little wood fragment heart.

Check out the heart shaped mud clump I found.

At Thomas’ request we had a great time moving through feelings and emotions as we dug up chunks of dried mud. And we brought our clumps home with us! Just cause.

Virginia Foothills Park this afternoon to hit tennis balls and enjoy a short walk.

I’ve been incredibly grumpy today which has involved much unfiltered commentary and language. I’m incredibly blessed I can share with Thomas and Lillian that, frankly, there was much anger within me today. And, I can further apologize for my colorful language, letting them know I’m doing the best I can at processing it.

And … they give me the space and understanding I need. Blessed we three chose one another. xoxo ..

My “word of the day” on Friday was an F-word that wasn’t Friday!! There was much anger and bitterness within me. I knew why it was there, and also knew it was a conditioned response. 

So I did my best to let myself stay with it and not push it away. The discomfort was there most of the day, yet by end of day had released some and yesterday morning had released fully. It was an amazing and magical day!!

Nature Calls Us To Be With Her

Day 3 of nature photo challenge … Thomas says that sometimes he doesn’t really want to go for a walk, yet he feels compelled to come along …. And he’s always glad he did. Nature does indeed call us to be with her. She soothes, inspires and refreshes us. xoxo
