today the boys found a shipwreck on the shore of our beach. it was in real rough shape but they worked hard at fixing it a new sail, backed it up with both modern engine and trusty oars and spent some hours out on the water tweaking the defenses with canons and auto bow and arrows…here’s to another year of adventuring and exploring, to more replies of “yes”, to softening my ego, to playing along and learning ever more from these mateys.
dreaming up a life at sea;
beach combing for useful ship parts;
life at sea;
satisfied and content;
well if my recent back injury didn’t make me want to work on my core strength, this sure did! i love cirque de soleil.
honestly, it’s been a bit overwhelming with things not happening smoothly or patiently or lovingly. we are all at fault. still there are some real good moments worth sharing;
4th light of Advent – enter the elves;
living more in the living room (we need to master this in the new year);
Christmas morning from my post on the couch where i spent most of the day with a pulled muscle in my back . ouch! i think the kids didn’t miss a beat though. more Christmas to come this weekend;
looking forward to feeling stronger and getting out in the world.
With this 3rd light of Advent
We give thanks to the animals
To beasts large and small
Who reflect back our souls
Bless the friendship
and wonderment they provide,
Their gifts of self
nourish our lives.
Bless the deep knowledge
and the lessons they offer,
about caring and loving
And sharing Earth with each other.
(umm i think we need a pet!)
it’s going on all around. some days i’m right in it and other days not so much.
Little A asked for lego;
and Little M asked for dried blueberries;
staff (and regulars) gathering;
and the most delicious home baked bread i’ve ever eaten;
