My husband and I have been working on trails in the woods surrounding our house. So, I’ve been hiking and drawing what I see.
While out walking, I saw something hanging from a tree. It took me a moment to figure out what it was. It was a small rocket and parachute that my husband and grandson launched back in June. A picture from along the trail.
For the last couple of days I’ve renewed my interest in our trails. The Japanese call it forest bathing or Shinrin Yoku. It’s healing to be out in nature, to walk along forest trails, to observe and become one with the earth. I do believe what they say, “Location, location, location is true.” My location isContinue reading “Forest Bathing”
Out walking on our trail yesterday. Afterward saw The Girl on the Train. I read the book some time ago and only remembered bits and pieces, but the movie brought it back to me. My husband and I were the only ones in the theater. I guess Sunday night is the time to go to a movie.

There will be some rerouting to follow in order to get the tractor though, as we don’t wish to cut any trees. PossiblyContinue reading “Trail Time”
Most people say I have a competitive nature. It’s not necessarily competing against other people, because in that category I really don’t stand a chance. It’s more like competing with myself. It’s about doing something when people say I can’t do something. We had limited time in Asheville. Upon arrival we enjoyed this great earlyContinue reading “The Challenge”
Saturday was clean up day for our county. So, we took advantage by doing some clean up around here. A friend brought over a trailer, and my husband and he worked together on both our place and his. There were people at the unloading spot to take advantage of other people’s discarded stuff. I’m notContinue reading “A Step into Nature and What is Natural”
