December 1st

A sunny and 60 degree 11:00 AM

Good time to do some hand wash...
Soup on the deck,
cheese, crackers and tea
for lunch
Miss the Basil because of frost.
Will add
chives, cilantro, parsley
and finish with some
coconut cake.

One in California,
Others taking part in Christmas parade.
One in the nearby big city
Two in New York
One in Washington
One visiting a new baby
in Vietnam.
Baby shower going on in Michigan..

The thought continually
comes to mind
"a busy family"

Some keep in constant touch
Others linger behind

Some read what she writes
Others do not have the time

I say "follow your heart"
because this one
has been there
and done that

right where I am
tending the woods....

Glad your family is so large that you do not depend on just one voice to keep in touch. You done good,kid.

'Follow your heart' - very good to remember!

I am glad your family can go about their own lives without guilt or worry - someone is in touch so everyone knows they will stay informed as will you. Healthy family environment when each is free to live his/her own life. And there you are happily living the one you choose amidst the rural landscape that is so beautiful and serene. Life is good. What a blessing to have a large and interesting family. :)

I just say you on Kitty's blog, Ms. Graysea and decided to pop on over. I read your profile and thought, this woman and I have a lot in common. I loved this post. You said it all in so few words. I wish I had that talent.

It is great to meet you!

I, in my house by the sea,
Admire your gently flapping clothes,
Your thoughts on family,
Your mesmerizing solitude.
