Joyful Anticipation

sat here thinking about 
leaving the nest,  it's that time of year!
The youngest of the brood left quite awhile ago
now, but he's coming home next
Wednesday for the last time!
That is as a single man,
 because come Friday 6th May he's going 
to wed the beautiful Karen,
here she is sewing 
things for the 
Big Day
what a 

Sharing the JOY Thursday

Haiku my Heart #25 Heart Focused Haiku

Recuerda mi Corazon
For Haiku my Heart Posts

My yoga practice usually leaves me a little lighter, 
this week we focused on the 
heart chakra gratitude meditation,
I left my class with a feeling 
of belonging to something greater than self!

Often times when my mind is busy,
 all thoughts running riot,
I can feel overwhelmed, 
I find sitting and focusing 
on the breath soothing and comforting.

Wonderbubble #1

As you may have gathered
I'm a little potty about
You might even say
 addicted ...
I can't face the day in-fact
without sight of
my little black box of tricks ...
Take this morning for example,
I have to finish
my interior decorating task'

this is a big

I've been putting it off
 for months, but then from 
the corner of my eye 
I see this
and so between coats 
I go into another world
the most wonderful
antidote to ...
decorating doldrums!

Postcards from Paradise #5 Stretching continued ...

Did I stretch a little too far?
Postcards from Paradise
 a coat of paint to brighten
is in order I think,
 I can balance on the ladder okay
despite vertigo and a grazed knee,
yes I can .... 
good thing I did, 
this little baby
needs help,
must be the second time
this buzzy has been
rescued today!
back to the job then ...
now for just deserts ...
Yes I did it,
not so bad after all,
I didn't overreach myself!

Happy Days

Haiku my Heart #24 Stretching

Stretching the body
and stretching the perception,
=  flexibility
Yesterday I fell and grazed my knee 
in the market place,
I got to think about my
 yoga practice,
had my stance been more
the damage could have been much worse,
makes you think!

Flower Frenzy Wednesday

After the harsh winter we've had
it's such a thrill 
to see this flowering shrub,
our cottage being in a  hollow
tends to get hit hard by Mr Frost,
these little beauties are very resilient ...
So I'm off to the nursery for more,
we have two acres of ground to cover!
Plus I hate weeding!

A Little Light Introspection

Noticing ...

light shafts
shifting shade
leading to a light introspection
do you see
 these shifting shafts of light,
illuminating life?

First man to venture into space 50 years ago today,
true explorers pushing the boundaries!
