My day continues
the sun is shining
I begin to tidy my garage
as someone is coming to spray in the next few weeks.
Then it is beginning to be so nice and warm outside
that I begin to add more small limbs to the fire pit.
and successful in it burning
for several hours
careful as I walk because there are so many
roots of the old trees'
exposed at this time.
Did not notice this last year
and wonder if I need to have a truck load of top soil brought it.
But really do not want to do anything like this.
It is wonderful to be outside....
I am tired and 1:30 and time for lunch and nothing prepared.
I quickly make a small portion of chicken salad
with a chicken breast left over from yesterdays meal.
My small Cuisinart chopper is so handy.
Chicken with a small addition of celery a scallion with a small
amount of Hellmans Mayo,
then chopped pecans and sliced black seedless grapes are folded in.
A small amount of broccoli and carrot slivers are steamed.
So this on my plate with 1/2 of sliced avocado and crackers.
Delightful to sit on the deck in the warm sun
eating my simple lunch
with Callie at my feet.
My mind is blank and undisturbed
except for the thought
nothing could be any more peaceful and enjoyable for me at this time of life.
There have been thoughts in the past year
after my fall
if my plans for the future need to change ?
Then my blank mind
is filled with the joy of my granddaughter's upcoming wedding
and thoughts continue to surface
of my son's visit
enjoying the woods with his mother....
Then another thought arises
I do believe I love this home and enjoy it more then the many over my past - now long life...
Callie continues not to move
and my day is ending
