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!

Great idea - I could always learn a new lesson! Wonderful photos too, as always.

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

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

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'
