There are pros and cons to being one with nature.

Because I’m focusing on happiness, that’s all you’re going to hear about/ see from me today.

(and for those who have been keeping up, my eyes are just peachy today. windows closedย at night it is…)

So here we are. This is what has been inspiring me and making me feel happy all weekend (aside from my lovely friends and family, who I am gracing with their anonymity and leaving them faceless and nameless to the blogiverse)

  1. Cows out in the country (the nearest one looked at me for a good minute)
  2. Flowers given to me from man-go-round while on an evening walk just now
  3. The creek running high (out at the cabin for an early father’s day)
  4. Finally hung some pictures I had made out of photos taken in the old ‘hood
  5. This awesome tree
  6. The rest of those turnips I was raving about (now you can see them for yourselves)

    Great post Meri! Thank you! I needed that this morning. Where were you when you saw the cow? I love the fluffy white clouds about her ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll definitely need to try these white turnips! I can’t wait to try them. I hope they have some at our local farmers market.

    I also really love this pictures you put in your house. Where did you get those prints. Lovely! and what a sweet man go round. I wonder what kind of flowers those are?

    This week and next I am looking to enjoy….
    1. Meditation
    2. More of the cardinal more that keeps frequenting our yard ๐Ÿ™‚
    3. a flower planter for my yard or just enjoy someone elses in their yard as I do my walking meditation.
    4. Get more me time. Speak nicely to myself and others ๐Ÿ™‚
    5. Read more real books, not online. Less screen time. More out of window screen time. ๐Ÿ™‚
    6. Call or email an old friend
    7. Go on a nature walk with my husband and son

    Thank you for this opportunity Meri…from the bottom of my heart. xoxo

      I like all of these, but especially number 4. I will work on that too. I found out on faux father’s day that cardinals are one of dad’s favorite birds. did you know that? he named one other favorite too but I forgot what it was. The cows were right off that road right after the turnoff at caseys/ hws 15. about 2 miles down the road before the first left. The prints were canvases I had made on snapfish of photos I took of flowers in our old neighborhood (one is a lily and one is super close up of a sunflower). I have one more to hang that is acrylic, not canvas, that is bright yellowy green, my new favorite color.
      I love ya, and thank YOU for your reply, from the bottom of MY heart.

      hahahahahaha! you’re funny, no, I was in my car, I just pulled to the side of the road (and didn’t even roll down the window, so you can see smeary windshield). Sometimes I walk as far as that first stop sign, but I’m afraid to be out in the fields/ country/ afraid of animals in general haha.
