Yes ....it's finished.
I'm not sure whether I will give my friend
this one or the other.....
No...I think I'll show you that later!
I have a question...
I have a question...
Where do you go
when you're feathers feel ruffled....
when you feel
that you just need to get away....
and let your soul...
and your spirit..
There are a couple of places
that I like to visit...
and I thought
that I'd like to share just one of them today
Look through the windows...
and out into the gardens
what do you see?
beckon you to come outside
it's not real...
They have 'different' garden furniture
waiting to surprise you...
around every corner!
But...it's the gardens
that draw me
over and over.....
Walking over the lawns
(usually with an ice cream in my hand)
...towards the lake.
I usually intend to walk around it but
tend to make it
to the first set of chairs....
and sit down....
and it's as if everything within me...
suddenly relaxes with a
(that's the best way I can describe it)
I can sit for hours...
and look at the flowers coming out...
...listen to the 'plop'
as the fish jump..
hear the birds sing...
and the bees busily hum as they pass
It's just so peaceful and relaxing
that I literally have to tear myself away
when it time to go home!
We usually stop
for a cup of tea and piece of cake
in the little tearoom
I always feel the better
of time spent
sitting by the lake!!
What about you?
Do you have 'special' place
where you stop
to let go...
(perhaps just for a little while)
...the stresses of daily life!
I have been busy finishing the Mandala
that I made for my friend
Decided to try a different design...
I have to say
I do love the more gentle colours of my
Drops, Paris yarn
I also crocheted
a little hat for a neighbour's baby.
Looks lovely with
the brim turned back on one side!
That's not her head inside...!!
I forgot to take a picture..
so my friend held it up!
I'm so sorry I haven't visited this week
or replied to your kind comments.
I've had my daughter and family visiting
and the week has flown away!
We've had a lovely time
My only grand daughter out of 8 grandchildren!!
says 'thank you very much'
to all of you.
She so enjoyed reading what you wrote.
She reads my blog quite often and likes reading
It was so hot yesterday
that I decided to go to one of the local beaches
A lot of other people seem to have had the same idea!
The sea was full of people swimming.
We sat on the wall
and ate our ice cream...
and pretended we were on holiday too!!
