First, a picnic, then a swim for me and playing in the sand for Thomas. I Love Lake Tahoe deeply and am so at peace when I get the chance to immerse in her! Just WOW!!!
Then for some floating fun in the tubes we borrowed yesterday. Too windy for kayaking as this would have been our first time. Need not quite so much wind. Floating and paddling in the tubes was perfect!!
Plus!!! Chipmunk wisdom!!! This sweet lil critter stayed with us the entire time we were deflating the tubes and loading the car. Thank you chipmunk!!!
Last stop on the date – SouthCreek Pizza for an appetizer for me of fire roasted green beans ….. Oh my gosh, YUM!!! … and dessert for Thomas of 3 scoops of rocky road gelato. Accompanied by a taste of the oh so yummy Ceci.
Sunset walk with Thomas tonight. Incredibly grateful we can see the sky again!! Love walks with Thomas!

Sunset walk with Lillian last night. I’m deeply grateful for the beautiful respite nature provides during times of uncertainty. Incredibly blessed.

Solo sunset walk tonight. Gotta get out there earlier. Thank you Nature for the beautiful breeze as I walked, the orange glow of the sunset, and the amazing clouds and trees.
As much as I want Nature to provide the solution and answers, she can only help clear the sludge from the heart …. where the solutions and answers rest. May I relinquish fear, May I respond from Love, May I have Faith and Trust. These are my intentions. And, so it is.
First stop – Fries for Lillian and a colorful fish shaped shortbread cookie for dessert. Coconut vegetable soup for me and a vegan hemp oat cookie for me. So yum!!!
Then shopping for some clothing items for Lillian. Now, a pit stop at home for a snack before closing out the date!!
Next half of date: A drive through our old neighborhood, with a few stops for photos.
Last piece of our date: A just-after-sunset walk. I adore the picture Lillian took of me. I had my eyes closed listening to the beautiful music the leaves sing as the wind blows through them. One of my most loved and treasured sounds.
Sunset walk yesterday evening. What a beautiful night it was. Felt so good. I’ve got something weighing on my mind and nature is my confidant and the one who helps me get out of the mind and into the heart.

Don’t hold onto it. Don’t let it soak within. Let it roll off.
Nature always has a perfect message for us when we stop, Be quiet, and Listen.
A message I needed to hear once again today as I make my way into unfamiliar territory for me.

The most amazing and wonderful sunset walk last night. Nature is an incredible gift and blessing. She inspires us to ponder.
Do we love and accept others for who they know themselves to be or do we love and accept our idea of them and how we think they make us feel? I’ve got a writing bubbling forth. Love, love, love.
Walk with Thomas before dinner. We watched for about fifteen minutes as this momma duck led her wee ducklings through the rocks to the water.
It was difficult to watch and not want to help as they kept sliding down the rocks. They finally made it!!! Safe and sound!! Whew! I circled the ducklings and the momma in blue because they blend with the rocks.
There was quite the cloud show.Rainbow cloud in the second photo. The photo doesn’t show all the colors; yet, it was amazing. Incredibly beautiful!!!

After dinner walk tonight with Thomas. Just missed the sunset; yet, still incredibly beautiful! Followed our walk with a starlit swim in the pool. Ahhhhhh!!!! Feeling incredibly blessed and grateful!

Photo bombed by a bee. He thinks these are beautiful too!
There’s really not much I truly know. Yet. This. I do know. Nature awakens the Knowing of my Heart. xoxo

Brings instant calm. The shoulders and jaw relax. The neck releases. And, if one chooses, whatever it is, can be released and let go.
First stop – French fries for Lillian and dessert cookies for both of us. Lillian is such a Star! A lady waiting to order commented she had seen us on TV. She was incredibly kind with so many wonderful comments. Then for a walk at one of our favorite parks. Beautiful bird song too!!!!
