Season of Change

Blog speak has been about changing seasons lately,  approaching colder days, nourishing food and snugly layers, speaking of which my attention became sharply focused on this as I sat blogging in the cool, wondering where my long, woollen winter cardigan had gone?  The one that covers my bottom and stops any cool air from contacting my thighs as I sit in the coldest room of the house until the Aga is permanently lit.  My usual trick is to have a thorough clearing out in spring of everything that makes me feel frumpy after the long winter, everything that hinders my intention to start the spring in style, only to regret it when autumn approaches and Jack Frost starts nipping again!  This year I was relieved to find it had been tucked away safe and sound for another blogging winter season!

So I think I have learnt a lesson, one of many this year I hasten to add, the thought occurred to me that it might be useful to add a little section to my blog under the heading Lessons Learnt?  Why? To remind myself of important lessons along my journey.  If anyone would like to comment I would really appreciate it and if anyone would like to add their own take on Lessons Learnt this too would be great!

I'm going to be changing my banner soon so I will add this new element then, in the meantime here are some  images I have found from my archive that may be right for this wonderful cozy season.  Which do you think?

Oh, I love the candle photo at the top. That's my fav, so warm and cozy feeling. And I understand the desire to have the comfortable, warm, familiar sweater back with the change of season. The one you described sounds heavenly!

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Recuerda mi Corazon

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
