When I'm out in nature, I feel a stronger sense of gratitudeand awe, and I see more clearly just how beautiful thisworld is. I need that feeling every once in a while if I'm tokeep a clear perspective in my daily life on just what is trulyimportant and just what isn't. We nourish our souls whenwe get in touch with nature, and our souls are the partof ourselves that we so often neglect.
GOOD MONDAY MORNING!
I’m home from my weekend trip to the campsite and I’ll be off to work as usual in just a little bit. It was so great to be back at my ‘little place in the woods’. The weather was a tad on the cold side in the mornings and nights, but the afternoons were comfortable so we enjoyed being outside then. Sunday morning DD’s dogs water in their water dish on their deck was frozen. That is how cold it got.
I went to the little village church for Easter and had to scrape heavy frost off my car windows before I could leave. By the time I got back to the camper, I was able to sit on the deck outside and enjoy my good cup of coffee.
My camper had two little visitors caught in the traps I had left behind. Their vacation time had expired. I’m not sure if they had other friends or not but will find out next week when I go as I re-sat the traps. That is one of the things I don’t like about being in the woods, but it is a small thing compared to the joys I receive.
I put a few pictures on the side bar for you all to see. Every weekend from here on out I’ll be taking more so will have something new for you to see from now til the end of October when we close the campers once more.
It’s back to work today!
I owe, I owe, it’s off to work I go…
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Never lose an opportunity of
seeing anything that is beautiful,
