I set a couple of videos as public. I didn't realize I'd left them as unlisted for so long! I guess it's been awhile since I uploaded a video! oh well. One is a cooking movie. Some people will like that! One person just commented that my videos make her smile when nobody else can! I guess I'm some sort of commedian! Cool!

There's an exercise class in a nearby village at 9:30. I'm going to go there! I'd like to take Desmond along. I'll go first and see what it's like there, then bring him alng if I can next time. I need an exercise class.

The sun has risen above the trees and is shining into our lovely new upper room. I've got 45 minutes. I'm going to drive very slowly to exercise class and take in the incredible sunshine on the hills in the forest, the lumps and bumps.

I want to snowblow the deck path that the roof fills up when the snow slides off. I also want to try snowshoeing on the moat road, our little pathway which is so beautiful! The sun is shining today! I should try to stay in the sunshine all day long!

Have a lovely day!

Sunday morning

I had the most lovely time this morning getting to going to pick somebody up for church. It's the most beautiful day. The sky is Beate will you to fully blue shoes

Enjoying my Stars tonight

I came home from taking Desmond home for dinner and it was dark. Like the Dark Areas that are set apart as places where you can see the sky vividly. Anyway, I went around the back of the house and sat on my walker. It had been melting a lot today. It went up to +11C! I don't remember those numbers since October or November!

I rolled out onto the SkyDeck and sat there above the valley, looking up at the dark sky, the stars as bright as lights. I was amazed at the wonders of this new construction our house has enjoyed this year! I haven't yet learned all there is to know about where I am when I'm here, the views I have now that I never had before, the animals that I can see.

I stayed out there for awhile, but my back hurt so I had to go inside and get comfortable. I went upstairs, then out on the balcony. It was warm enough to be out there without a coat. Okay, almost warm enough. I think it was 7C a little while ago.

I just loved seeing my old friends, all the constellations, so many of the stars that I've watched and figured out in my mind. I can always look up on a dark night and see that All is Well and God is in His Heaven. It's the most 'right' feeling ever. He is there keeping His eye on me.

No matter where on the planet I've stood gazing at the night sky, I've always felt safe and protected. Something cozy about the stars.

I am having the most wonderful day. I've been following the sun all day long. I went downstairs this morning and found it wasn't as sunny downstairs because of the densely forested hillsides. It wasn't time for it to be further on its journey across the sky. It's about halfway now, or maybe more. It's coming in the windows cos it's low on the south sky.

I facetimed with Maryjane. We decided to look into trading Willem for her for a few days for a winter break with me! I took her downstairs to show her the kitchen, but my other device ran out of battery.

So I went outside and relaxed on my walker on the front porch in the warmth, in the sunshine. After awhile I chose to turn on the snowblower and make a path out from the deck to The playground and under the swings and to my hammock where I can lay in the sunshine.

I ran out of gas and went to get willem. It's a lot of snow I moved. It wouldn't have been possible without this snowblower, another of the tender mercies of my Heavenly Father. I am always under His watchful eye. He is looking after me. He only gives me good. All things that i experience are good. There is nothing to fear, it's only change. God is watching over me and I am safe. God is babysitting me and I am safe.

I pushed my walker to get the gas can, every step hurting. What had made my unfused SI joint go out this morning. It's has been making me limp ever since. I have to pay attention so I don't limp.

Willem came out and helped me. We sat and looked at the situation for awhile. I encouraged him to put gas in the snowblower while I sat and watched. He wanted to turn the blower around and back it up the snowpacked steps and then he could just pull it up onto the deck from there.

I went back to blowing and unearthed, unsnowed the hammock. Willem dug the snow out of it. When it was empty I took over with the snowblower. I have made a wonderful place to sit or for the grandchildren to swing and to play.

I returned from having tried to empty my little tunnel and bowl ends of snow. It's a great play area. I think I'd like to put a board across the snow so he'd have a tunnel to crawl through!

I could build a quincy for him with the snowblower! Now that would be great fun!

I came in and up to my chair in the bright sunshine. The sky was so blue earlier. It's clouding up now, but only with whispy stuff. When I feel painfree, I'll head down to the moat for a little walk.

I need to figure out something about my kitchen which doesn't exist at the moment. It was nice to show it to Maryjane.

I went out to sit on the front porch again and saw Scarlett and Bo. They are certainly enjoying the nature around here. I hope they are able to buy something in these hills.

They worked at the ice on the benches and on the deck. The sun shone on us as we moved about on the deck. I enjoyed watching them work and making jokes. Later We had fun sitting on the bench in he chilly wind on the front porch. I'm so glad I'm getting to know Scarlett. Again or for the first time? I am enjoying meeting this lovely woman whose family are staying with us while they house shop.

What I experienced today

I guess the experiences in my life are with nature or animals or people. I had a few today. The moment when Scarlett greeted me at the door with a huge loving smile was the best! I was feeling good from yoga and I felt glad to be home.

We are pioneering it a tiny bit, well, roughing it without a setup kitchen. There's only one spot where we get pure water, that's the kitchen cold water tap. At the moment it's laying on the floor and the tap is in a bowl.

I need to make a decision about our washer and dryer.

While following the snowblower, I worry about what the rattling sound is. No sense worrying, just should get the trailer out and take it to the business I bought it from.

I want to snowshoe into the lower entrance. I can't find the snowshoes at the moment though. They must be in a bin I guess. Or maybe in my storage room. I'm not sure. Anyway, I don't think I can get past the snowbank, though. I want to be in the middle of the fir trees. I can't get to any of the others at the moment. I need to figure out a way to do that, or something like it. Give me a little while to think about it.

Sitting by the moat in the warm sunshine, being aware of my breathing was really nice. I don't know how many minutes I sat there, but I knew I didn't have long till the glorious sun fell below the trees on Hairy Woodpecker Hillside. I just enjoyed it so much. I love the moat road. I really feel so much more at home there than at home, even. It's such a blessing to have all that I have. I am so blessed. I love my chairs that I sit in. I love my views. I love my accessibility with my walker.

What I did today

Sometimes when I sit to write in my journal, I'm overwhelmed with the amazing happiness and love I've experienced in a day. It's usually being with my family. But today I am just wondering what I did today. It wasn't special, but it was nice and peaceful. I felt good being wherever I was.

I went to yoga first today. I was up early, but was nearly late leaving to pick up Ankaret. I can't believe how amazing yoga is. it's really a peaceful meditation on our body and how it feels. It's quite an amazing thing to do it again after so many years, but even better than i did it myself.

I was most amazed that I was able to stretch my body and it responded and my back muscles relaxed. That meant so much to me.

When I got home, Scarlett greeted me at the door. She looked so happy and full of love! It was nice to spend some time with everyone. We are working out my kitchen, whether to get a new one or not, which design would be good for me, what I want and don't want. This also involves me washer and dryer. It would be quite nice to get one that fits under the counter, but it won't be very big. I'd have to wash laundry a lot more often than I do now.

I still don't know what I'm doing. We are at a cross roads with the new kitchen floor down. Willem took our laundry to Alida's in the meantime. I have to get it into my mind that it's okay to have a nice kitchen, that it will make a lot of difference.

Perhaps like my mom, I only see that familiar and am not ready for change. But there's also the price. I like the photo Scarlett just sent me. It is a lot of information to process. I'd just like a kitchen that works for me. Scarlett has some good ideas. I'm just resistant to change or something.

I went to Mera for the weaver meeting. I haven't been there very much lately now that I've taken on the running of the fiber arts program. I love the weavers. I need to go and spend time with everyone if I expect to feel like I'm a part of the group. Take my lunch, etc. I'm glad I have another tea towel to work on now, this is the third green and white squares I've made. I should see if I need to pay someone for them.

I came home and wanted to enjoy the sunshine, so I took the snowblower out. There's a banging noise. I see something is hitting. I bet a chunk of ice got wedged and bent something. Maybe.

I love taking the snowblower down to the moat and walking behind it and controling it. I love the sunshine down by the gypsy cabin, or on the moat road closest to Serenity Dippity pond. I love to sit in the metal grillwork chair and face the hills and island. I spend my time looking for deer coming across the top ridge of the esker and into the fir trees of the Marsh Woods Fen.

Willem came down to meet me there when I had abandoned the snowblower to sit in the sunshine and hear the peace and quiet, and to hear the county road traffic. Before I came up, I blew into the woods across our little road. It's so beautiful in there. The tractor had had a problem with the snowbank, so I thought I could give a bit of help there. It felt good to do something helpful.

I blew around the deck again, then sat where I could enjoy the forest and look down dead mans run to see any of the wildlife that are out there.

The sun was so beautful this afternoon. I missed most of the day outside, but spent time with the knitters while we all learned how to make lace! I want to do that! Like the shawl that my dear friend in Holland gave me.

I'm going to make one out of my homespun yarn! That's going to be an amazing shawl! Or maybe it should be a poncho sort of shawl.
