Grounded Goodness

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
~ Rachel Carson

 

Yesterday was one of those days when my body just wasn’t cooperating.

At first it got me down. I had so many things to do, and I couldn’t see well enough to do any of them!

Ben came to the rescue and suggested what I needed was a walk and then a nap. He was right.

So, here, in pictures is my walk around the farm, and then the beginnings of fruit salad for dinner.

The bird is a tawny frogmouth fledgling who took shelter on the wheelbarrow in one of our sheds. Cute, hey?

  1. Hope your feeling better today sweetheart…and that baby tawny frogmouth owl is ‘almost’ as cute as dear Bert! actually that baby owl is SOOOOO cute…XOXO

  2. The baby bird and the Bert’s face are enough to melt any heart. I fully understand the body failing to hold up it’s end of the bargain. Or maybe I didn’t hold up mine first? I will get better and you will too!

  3. Hope your feeling better after your walk it always works for me too . I have never heard of a tawny frogmouth …he looks so grumpy and gorgeous all rolled in to one . Is that Burt I see peeping. Give that dog a strawberry 😊
