December Tradition – Ornament Shopping With a Poinsettia

December 8 2020

It has become a tradition for Lillian and I to visit a couple of shops to look at Christmas tree ornaments in early December, usually finding one she would like to have. She can’t wear a mask so I went, took pictures, and texted them to her. Not nearly the same, but at least she got to see them. Which one do you think she chose? 🎄🎄🎄

December 11 2020

We received a beautiful poinsettia with a basket of goodies this afternoon from Overture. What a wonderful surprise! Overture is the contractor I work for as a host home provider for Lillian, and Lillian is their client. ❤️💚❤️💚❤️💚

The new ornament I got for myself when I was “shopping” with Lillian for an ornament for her. 🎄🤍🤍🤍🎄

Winter Swimming With a View from the Garage

December 6 2020

First piece of wardrobe has arrived for being able to have these winter swims, and not have my body go numb walking back to our place. Never having had access to a heated year round outdoor pool, I’m going to take full advantage of it. The heavy duty spa robe should be arriving any day now. Yay!!

December 11 2020

Every time I pull into the garage, I am blown away by the beautiful view. 🙏🙏🙏 Deeply grateful. A lot!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Earth Dancing and Three Positive Words – Sonya Interviews Camilla

December 10 2020

New Interview! This past July I took part in a written interview with Sonya of “A Lover of Books”. Before the interview could post, Sonya made a decision to retire from book blogging, which I fully understand. Book blogging can be intense! I figured I would share it here as Sonya put much time and effort into going back and forth with me, and pulling it together.

Sonya and I chat about having no idea what I’m doing, being a nature inspired poet, not intending to publish my poetry, how writing has been therapeutic, Earth dancing, and three positive words. Join us …

First of all can you tell me a bit about your latest book, ‘Words of Alchemy’?

Absolutely, Sonya! Words of Alchemy is a free verse poetry memoir that covers six years of my life, from 2013 -2019. Writing has been and is therapeutic for me, including writing poetry. When I began writing poetry in 2013, it was a way of processing life experiences, healing, and getting things out of my head. Words of Alchemy is a poetry collection of these events.

What do you hope readers will get out of this book?

It is my hope that readers connect with the content, causing them to laugh, shed a tear, or nod their head in agreement. If something I have written helps another to view a situation differently, opens their eyes or heart to a new way of experiencing life, or simply lets them know they are not alone, I am truly blessed.

Is this a book people can turn to when they need to relax or are after some inspiration? ….

Throwback Post: Fairy Book of Jobs

**THROWBACK POST**

September 23 2013:

Tonight Lillian was showing me the Fairy Book of Jobs. I asked her if she thought they needed a Reiki Fairy. She said “Yes” and told me my next step is to write down that I’d like to be a Reiki Fairy and turn it into one of the teachers at The Fairy College. They will get back to me. Lillian said that would be a really good thing there. She also said she may see me there later as she is going to the Fairy Library and it is at the college. Hope y’all have some sweet dreams on that note!! HA!!! xoxo


(May 2012 Photo of Lillian, on one of our walks)

December 2020 Note: Lillian was 12 years old when this happened. For quite some time, every night while she slept she visited Fairy Land. That’s what this conversation was about. Such sweet, sweet, memories!

Wonderful walk this afternoon. Lots of memories at this park. I kept imagining a young Thomas and Lillian. We came here to play frisbee, football, soccer, tennis, and to just sit and read. Beautiful memories.
