Feelings #3

Today I spent time in the garden,
I was optimistic for a good day.



The path we created last year has not weathered well,
the person who mixed the mortar (my love) was tardy!
It all cracked and disintegrated, he blames the frost,
I say there was not enough cement in the mix!

Anyway I was the one who had the job of
scraping it out and reapplying new!
I started off in great spirits, but
after a couple of hours I was
done for, I felt my age
somewhat like this
old lady,


 a little ragged round the edges, but still going for it!

BTW My love is building a wall to keep the flood waters out and the dogs in,
you can see the start of it just behind where I'm working, looks good hey?
Hope he got the mix right this time!  ;~)xxx

Kinda like yoga, maybe not as glamourous at least you got out in the sun. Oh and thanks for this word "tardy" I do love it so.x
That's quite a job! And yet you make it look so peaceful!

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

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 …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
