August 28 2018:

Solo sunset walk for me. Bright, beautiful, and, oh so peaceful.

August 30 2018:

Sunset walk with Thomas tonight. Such an incredibly beautiful and amazing Nature show. Deeply grateful for Mother Nature. 🙏💙💚💦🌏🌏💦💚💙🙏

We volunteered at The Humane Society this afternoon. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to go and Thomas was excited to go for a visit!

Tennis and Grateful and Blessed and Wisdom and Vibrant and Peaceful

August 19 2018:

Thomas and I had a sunset session of hitting tennis balls at one of our favorite parks. Just gorgeous. We had fun!!!

Grateful to and for Nature!! Blessed, blessed, blessed. I love Thomas and Thomas is awesome!!

Great White Egret on this mornings walk. Thank you for your wisdom and beauty.

August 21 2018:

August 22 2018:

Drive by visit with The Romano Duo. Had to have a walk with them as it is such a beautiful night. They head for Medford, Oregon in the morning. Then back through Reno next week.

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.


 

Sunset and Beautiful and Always Heard and Dance Party and Jay and Peace and Clarity

July 22 2018:

Sunset walk tonight. Beautiful sky, good breeze, and an accidental sideways picture of the rocks where I sat for a few minutes.

July 30 2018:

Found while walking Yonce this morning. To be followed by passing a bouncy young girl of about 7 years old walking with her grandma.

As I walked by the young girl, I smiled and said “hello”. To which she quickly said to her grandma, “Grandma, I want that lady to be my mom.” Grandma swiftly replies no and they continue walking.

Sweet girl, I wrap you and your family in oceans of love and pray for grace, courage, and strength for whatever is going on in your lives; whether it be a small or big issue or whether you were even just playing a game. And I pray that your voice is always heard. xoxo …

July 30 2018:

From a walk last week … Created by the sun and a tree! Cool!

Last week was hugely weird so I never got around to posting it.

On another note when it feels like Life just took a big dump on you; it sort of helps to have a dance party with Boogie Shoes by K.C. & The Sunshine Band, Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry, and You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oates, among a few others!

I shall let myself mourn over that which only ever existed in my imagination, something I was desperately clinging to, feel this crappy moment or two, and let myself know what I need to know, and then ….. I’ll just keep going.

I do have much to be grateful for; yet I do not want to cram these feelings. I shall focus on gratitude once I’m done letting go of this. And, I shall remember how powerful I am.

Wanna help? Have your own dance party or whatever brings forth good feelings and then send some good feelings and prayers this way. Oceans of gratitude …

July 31 2018:

Found today …. Blue Jay or Stellar Jay. Not sure. Yet, what a beautiful message to receive.

July 31 2018:

Sunset walk with Thomas tonight …. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful.

Oh Great Sun.
Clarity,
Bathe me in
Clarity and Knowing.
Thank you.

I’m in love with the leaves of this tree. The little veins, the color, the blue shimmery speckles, and the shadows. I have probably taken about 15 pictures of them.

Sunset walk with Lillian last night. It was a beautiful night and just what we both needed as we’re both experiencing “re-entry pains” from our respite from one another.

We followed this with a swim in the pool and a soak in the hot tub. Ahhhhhhh …. Just what we needed. xoxo

This crows family is looking out for him. He’s not able to fly and he’s been hanging out here for a couple of days. Every time I walk by they start cawing like crazy to warn him. I saw one bringing him food this morning. Hoping it’s something he can heal from and rejoin his family.
