Juicy Summer

Sweet juice of summer
drip, drip, drip, quenches my life
lifting high my heart

This is one of those years to remember we are actually having a summer,
we have had more than two consecutive weeks of sunshine!
Today begins the folk festival next to our cottage,
we usually go in wellington boots but this year I think it is safe to wear sandals!

Joining in with

Cupcake baking in progress,
bouncy castle to arrive soon
along with party animals ~
we have a 'jungle' theme going on!

My buzz word for today is b-r-e-e-z-y
I need it first for the heat
secondly for calm ;~)

I remember last year at this time as well. Not summery at all. When I think about how hot and humid it is right now in Wisconsin, I imagine that drip, drip drip of some kind of juice cooling my body to be waves of cool water.
Very glad you are upbeat and enjoying life. Have fun at the festival and eat a cupcake, or two, for me.

Much Peace sent your way Ms. Foxy

You are having a fun time with a lot of breeze sun and light!! Can sense your buoyant mood!! We on the other side of the globe are done with the scorching summer heat and sweating and enjoying the welcome rains!! Funnily we here don't walk in wellies, they even stopped selling them, instead we all wear sandals and bellies specially made for the monsoons!! :) How things vary in different regions!!

my darling sue,
you are beautiful in any weather, but
oh how the sun brings about a healthy bloom!
i say jump in sandals and all and kiss the joy as it flies!
stay breezy,
Love that opening line: "Sweet juice of summer"!

It almost makes me appreciate this torrid time of year.

Can I have cup cake? Summer is not my favorite season, fall is, but your words are beautiful...

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 …
