Sunshine & Shadows

Ups and downs of life,
like sunshine punctuating
 April's rainy days.

The ups and downs of life are as sure and perpetual as 
UK rainy days clearing to sunny spells in April!

Learning how to roller coaster the ride
is mighty tricky and one might
say takes a life-time to learn,
or not, whichever the case maybe!

Me, I'm still learning.

My love almost turned momentarily to hate
after an explosion of frayed nerves.

I always get nervous at worming time,
Dougal dog, he always outwits me and
always detects the worm tablet,  
always manages to detach
it from the rest of his food and spit it out.
I was delighted when I fooled him
and dropped it into his mouth in a chunk of meat,
it never even touched the sides, 
victory short-lived -
vomited up a couple of hours later!

Still hobbling from my ankle injury, may have to go back to hospital.

Seeded toast and orange juice for breaky
Pancakes, honey and lemon for desert
followed by a minute slice of pizza for mains!

Comfort eating, will I ever learn!!!

Amazing photo! You are really inspiring me to experiment more with photography and not just snap shots of the every day variety... your haiku, of course, "works" with the photo perfectly! Plus, it is a great haiku in its own right! I do feel inspired :)

Smiling here at your haiku, your wonderful words and your photo! I need to eat dessert first more!
My dear Sue,
Life is filled with Light and Shadow isn't it. I am so sorry. I didn't know that you were injured. I haven't been blogging haiku while working on the thesis. My thoughts are with you. I love your soul expression with the shades of gray in your template and the burst of color in your photography. It is as though your spirit is finding expression and seeking light even in a dark time. It is who you are. It is beautiful. Please keep in touch dear.
Hope you don't have to go back to hospital. Ah yes sunshine and shadows. Dogs can be tricky.

yippee for dessert first...those are the best sorts of meals...

had to giggle at the Dougal dog outwitting the pill...that's a skill usually reserved for cats...he must have studied under a Master. :) (also love the name Dougal)

I am laughing at your pups worming pill. I am amazed that Melly can find the pill buried in the treats and eat around it to deftly spit it out.

hope your ankle is better and you are back to downward dogs soon.

A Heady Afternoon

All the Queen's men  and women were invited,  this was just such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Partying with the Royals no less,  right outside their font door, a heady occasion! This will feature strongly in my 'Joy Portfolio' Sending to  Sharing the Joy Thursday Meri's Musings

All day long we'd be nursing baby and bunny, dress on, dress off, wrapping baby up, washing baby, changing nappies, swaddling her in a blanket, laying her in bed.... I mean the whole day! Then when it was bedtime for granddaughter Connie, of course baby and bunny had to go too... No one has taught her this deep nurturing behavior, it is as natural as breathing... I think this might be why these female doll-like creative expressions keep popping up, why I so enjoy playing with my images, expanding them in the digital playground. As a child I remember the books that had the perforated pull out paper dolls with interchangeable mix and match wardrobes, where the dresses hooked onto the dolls by tabs at the back, this fascinated me. I have the natural desire to nurture, this seems to be deeply seated within the feminine. When looking around 'blogsphere' a profusion of nurturing sister circles have appeared, nourishing and flourishing!  I have come to the real


A Continuum ~> continual sequence of ~> elemental change ~> By far this is the most difficult post written by myself, ever. I have not visited this place for sometime... I have been 'lying low' as an old friend used to put it, not low through depression or anything like that but since my love passed away parts of my known world have passed too. I have difficulty recognizing the landscape around me, I'm lying low so that I can absorb some of the new terrain. I am still quite dizzy, it's going to take some time... Much of what I wrote about here in this space would involve a brief glimpse of 'my love' and our life together. I had thought of closing 'Finding my Bliss', for a pivotal part of everything this blog has stood for seemed on the surface of things to be missing! But as the days have come and gone I am beginning to look at things in a different light and although I am grieving for my love I find I am l feeling his prese
