Family Time

Family time is rare and visit on Sunday was so enjoyable,

Callie watches from a safe distance as one young granddaughter practises her driving skills on this

Weather continues to be beautiful..

A quote on my son's birthday card

"All I can be is who I am right now,  I can experience that and work with it.
That's all I can do.  The rest is the dream of the ego"    C.J. Beck

"A simple life can bring a lot of happiness" Thich Nhat Hanh
and I will add
this is all I want....

Handwritten notes from my 2 youngest granddaughter's make me smile
and especially when the youngest shares my talents, loves me to the moon and back
and says at the end "you are extremely lovely."
Now how can you top this as I travel my 80.s

A lot of organizing being done, desk is piled high with papers and trying to organize closet.

Something keeps telling me
it is going to be a bad Winter.
so enjoying these wonderful days....

I do love those quotes--so true. I am so happy you got to have family be there for a visit. Although tiring sometimes, what a wonderful feeling as it is happening and after.
I can only work outside for about 20 minutes, then have to sit and rest my back, but I WILL get all the gardens put to bed before the first snow flies. I hope. :-) I too heard that the Farmer's Almanac is predicting a hard winter.

Love that your farmland provides a space for the new driver to test her skills. And I agree that we have to look forward, lean in, do what we can and then take care of ourselves no matter what the age.

I love the header. Ghostly and alive at the same time.

Glad you are settling into the 80s. Your lantern lights the way.
