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!

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 …
