A Day In October

Bliss is another word for happiness. This is what it means to this ancient one an early morning. In her oldest clothes, camera around the neck, blower going full speed as she continue to keep the woods path clear, and cell phone in her pocket.

A delightful morning. It is cool, breezy, and the sun is shining brightly. Just finished using the blower on the path through the woods. Could not resist hanging clothes on the line. Love seeing them blow in the breeze.

Last of basil in the freezer - and some placed in water to root. Also some sprigs of sage put in soil to see if this is successful. Read somewhere you could do this. Also sprigs can be put in the soil outside and they take root. If not successful it sure has a wonderful scent in my kitchen area. Expecting frost in the next few days so needed to get this out of the way.

It is time to stop and have a cup of tea.

Her eyes land on this scene. "Callie no " Hope the little frog got away? Did not look like Callie was eating anything - so really could not tell.

Thankful that one daughter arrived safely in New York. She is attending something special for granddaughter Sarah who attends Manhattan School of Music. Another daughter will be returning in hours from Sweden. (busy family)

Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring
back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.

Wherever you are on this planet - best wishes are sent to you from One Woman who lives at the edge of the woods ...

Hello Ern! Nice pic of Callie, and the frog looks like a good actor. I guess Callie was just playing with it and finally let it go away. My dogs like to do that with frogs. Best wishes to you from the North of Thailand.

I love the smell of cut basil in the house. I have not been able to keep it going through the winter. It really needs warmth and light and I do not have enough I guess. Husband is drying red peppers today and the house smells of that.

I want that blue bottle to go with my collection :-)

You wrote a perfect discription of yourself this morning. I could just picture you. Hope you have a nice weekend...Balisha

Jessi, hope Callie did not eat the frog :) Tabor, this is an experiment and will see what happens. Judy, I love blue bottles. Balisha, you know me well - it was my favorite kind of day.
