Sunset walk yesterday …

Found a quiet shaded spot, took the shoes off, stood barefoot in the grass, touched the grass with my fingers ….. breathed it in and breathed it out.

From the walk yesterday.

Thank you Mother Nature. Thank you.

When one receives news that brings forth fire breathing anger, she is there to let you know it’s okay to let yourself feel this old and new anger. Feel it. Let it all bubble to the surface. Scream. Sob. Cuss. I will help you release it.

Deeply grateful to Mother Nature. Ahhhhh ….. Here’s to a new day! So good at what she does .. 🙏💙💚💙💚💙💚🙏

Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day

August 10 2018:

Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day ….

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.
