June 27th

 “Sometimes I need only to stand wherever I am to be blessed.” 
Mary Oliver
With apple blossoms and wild roses

Flowers humming in the dappled sunlight

wood and water ...

 The green and cool of our 'mountain' meadow.
It's a gentle life.
David and I celebrate our anniversary today.
"Truly madly deeply"
And with gratitude.

A Good Morning in June

If you have written to us and there has been an unreasonable lag in my response time I do apologize.
David and I were away from home for two weeks (mostly without access to internet).

We were visiting our families and helping to celebrate some milestones.  It was my little sister's fiftieth birthday, Father's Day of course, my sister in law's birthday and, most delightfully our niece Rebecca's high school Graduation.  She graduated with honours, was awarded two scholarships and will attend her local University College in the fall.  Congratulations Rebecca Diane.  The world is already a better place because of you.

It was wonderful to visit both our families; from the littlest ones to the more vintage members of the tribe.  Good to see everyone and always so satisfying to enjoy those real hugs that are virtual for too much of the year.   We love you all.  Come visit us up here on the meadow sometime.  :)  

And home again. It is always good to be home again . . .

Grazing the interweb on Saturday morning at the kitchen table over a most excellent cup of Kicking Horse Coffee (Three Sisters blend is my favourite); I came across a site called Tiny House Talk and enjoyed reading some of the articles about living in small spaces, living sustainably and living off grid.

But for now ... it's back to my emails and again, sorry if I have left you waiting for a response.
I feel rejuvenated and ready to get things done and have some fun.
Thanks for your patience and here's to a wonderful summer!! Talk to you soon!
