Creating a home with soul...
I feel fairly certain that most of us, most of all, just really want somewhere to belong...a place to call home.
A place that has warmth & love & soul.
If we carried this thought a little closer to our hearts sometimes I think we might discover that our lives were richer & more wonderful than we had realized.
The choices..to live a richer, better life are often so very simple..
I am learning to love breakfast for the first time in my life. In fact I am learning so much about nourishing traditions & nurturing ways this year that my life will not ever be the same again.
Good magazine, as you can tell. I love the nostalgic touches & the good old fashioned, down to earth ...let's inspire & pass on knowledge, choices & information.
A few days later we took our Kaitiaki (grandson 2) through the "secret way" to the Farmer's Market.
It was left to Pop to carry the heavy things...like this gorgeous Muscque de Provence pumpkin & 4 litres of Village Press olive oil.
I am very thankful for my friend Ruth who is also a constant gatherer.
A few weeks ago we went gathering walnuts at the back of her orchard...& across the creek & over here..
Lovely big walnuts are now drying in my washing baskets & a few hazelnuts too.
Ruth has three daughters & they have just set off on the most remarkable journey. They are walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, some 800 miles from The Pyrenees mountains to near the coast of Spain. A pilgrimage taken by many through the ages for as many reasons as there are people, but it is said that James (the brother) of John was buried at Camino de Santiago de Compostela & that the Camino trail is the path that his followers took on the way to find his resting place.
I was so glad that I was able to join some friends & see this wonderful movie "The Way" on Wednesday night & even more delighted to find myself sitting beside a veteran pilgrim Barry who had walked the Camino Way some 10 years ago..what an interesting man. I feel very blessed by the encounter and mention the movie because it really is a just wonderful & you just might like it too.
I am so glad that you came to visit...thank you for being here!! And for your lovely comments & conversations. I so appreciate you all!
Wishing you sunshine & roses in this coming week.
