Shadow And 24 hours
Could not get them off of my mind last night. Kept thinking of all of those years they had together and now she is alone. They did not have children but do have nieces and a nephew.
Arriving home and prepared for downtime - I noticed the light and shadow coming through window in front door on a favorite painting. This image does not do it justice - it was beautiful. It was there and then gone - I wonder is that like life - a shadow that is viewed and then gone.
A busy day - Gas in truck, 3 stores for best buys in each one (they are all practically side by side). I am trying to make my trips to town every 10 days to 2 weeks and it is a challenge. Left rubbish off at center, bank and then on to a dear friend who does much for me. A box with a dozen orange cookies, some special fruit, a cutting of a rose bush that roots easily, 4 volunteer cherry tomato plants that came up in my "muddy and wet garden" and a piece of my dill and sage so she could enjoy the scent. She does not plant herbs and time is spent 24 hours caring for a bed ridden husband.
Home, unloaded truck, lunch, computer, phone calls and then took mower and went over some of the woods paths.
Dinner consist of some butternut squash soup that was made yesterday, bath and meditation and prayer time and I am through for the day.
