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 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'
