I am currently shivering! I am currently very very grateful not to be homeless! I am very very grateful to have heat and food. I am still shivering and thinking about placing heated bricks in the bed for warmth, Ok, so it’s a memory AND it really works! I got myself a rare evening cup of black tea and decided to look through my pictures folder, while it steeped and I drank. I long for these sights and these smells. Bright flashes of God, The Creator’s great imagination! How chosen the reds fading to other reds and orange, petals curved and curled just so in each moment as the sun moves, or we move, or maybe just the Earth…
I cleaned out a row of celery, saving much of it for customers. I loved the resistant tug of the celery as I pulled it free of the soil. Its scent, unique perfume, lingering until I found more dill!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!! The things the air carries, bringing forth and sending away!

Elisa, I just realized I didn’t have your blog on my blogroll! A huge oversight for which I beg forgiveness. Just linked you in my current blog as an added appreciation for visiting the Outdoor Blog this fall. Drinking a cup of black tea now and wishing you a Happy Solstice and Merry Christmas!
Awww thank you! I do what I do, because I like it, not for attention. THOUGH……..
THE PURPLE SHOW WEARIN GLITTER PRINCESS IS SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED TO BE NOTED! oie! shaking head and rolling eyes! She’ll be demanding pointy sparkly glasses and pens with feathers upon their ends now too I suppose!
I just got the squash bird feeder assembled and hung outside, cookies and breads are on the list to do next. Smudging inside and outside later after the tree is adorned and E is home late tonight, just in time to go outside and do the Solstice beginnings! Dancing from light to dark with the Green Man and that old hag Cailleach must address the coming sun!
