Just Happy to Be

The highest of all places, and every corner then I see, reaching to the ground, is full of glory.

Over here we have endured the coldest, and the wettest June in memory. The sun has now returned, at last. I spent the hot afternoon beneath our trees in shady comfort – just happy to be outdoors again. This is the second collection of pics I took in May, part three will follow soon.

Before I go, I wish again, to thank you all who stop to read this blog. I would spend more time here, if I only could. May your ways be strong and sure, and your heart life’s praises sing.

Beyond my tree, the heat, it never faded.

How cool it was today, where I was shaded.

But if I thanked the tree, you know, a pagan I would be. And so 

I do not thank the tree, but He who made it.

Toys and Things

It has been a long time, for time flies swiftly when we are exploring, (perforce,) the peaks and valleys of our respective inner landscapes. My health dips more during seasonal transitions, and this Autumn is no different. However, I’m back, at least for today, and with these photos to share.

Taken by Amanda and Luke, at Hartlebury Castle Museum, they show a little of the history, toys, things, and fashions which have left their mark. Plus some sculptures old and new. (The bar is modern, but still makes a good pic.)

The museum is situated in Worcestershire, and is open to the public for most of the year.

I hope to return with part two in this series very soon, though my internet attendance record is a bit patchy. Working on my old mac can be so like taking a wheezy and arthritic old dog out for a walk, that I may have to buy it a wheelchair, (like a mini version of mine.)  Therefore please forgive me if my replies to comments come late. Such tardiness!

 

Namaste, and thanks from my heart to you all ~ Amras.
