Hiya Nyiah! Hey I rhymed. lol

At my last place of employment, they would have appreciation barbecues with great food. They even offered lobster. In winters we had pizza parties.

Maybe the people your Hubby works with could take turns chaperoning?

I love that Ari guy's music!!!!!! Awesome! You always introduce me to amazing music.

I didn't know that in Finland they don't use the word love like we do around here. I would be speechless. Lol
I love so many things and always have to express that. And I love you my friend!

I will be going out with my Sister later on for lunch.

Breathe deep and live in the moment. Concentrate on beautiful things. If only for this day, leave your cares behind.

'Raine, living in fear (as you said) is something I dealt with for years. I can only say that the reality was both worse and better than I had imagined. The depths to which one falls cannot be described, but I learned they were not to be feared, for they led towards release from those years of fear and dread. The release is still painful but if one can let go -- let go as much as we can -- then we feel the love that buoyed us up, from the one we loved and love still. And this lets us carry on.

Thank you, Blue. But at least our boat sails ahead. Slowly and often over rough seas, but it carries us forward through life and hopefully, one day, to pleasanter shores.

Oh, WIS, I sometimes wonder how you know. Loch Lomond is a special place for me, not just physically but spiritually. Back around 43 years ago when I was just a young man, I even spent a night at Loch Lomond castle. It was a magical time, especially as a day or two before, up on the Isle of Skye, I had met a lovely young lady named Bronnie (just 20, like me), who was from Canada. We had to travel on along our separate ways after meeting on the lovely Isle, but I was still walking on clouds when I got to Loch Lomond: I slept little during my night there as I was mostly lying awake and thinking of her, thinking and wishing that our paths could have continued on together.

If there is some love on a journey, it makes it all the more magical. With Dada, on our journey together, we had love every day. With Bronnie (and long before I met Dada), it was just a few short days. But still I wonder what might have been if that time together could have gone on.

My travels in Scotland have always kept their magic, because of those few short days with Bronnie. And Loch Lomond just emphasized their wonder.

Thank you for the inspiring words Mike!
So wonderful to see you today! How are the kitties and the weather and stuff?



Oh, where are my manners? Shall I pour you a drink Sir Mike? It's a perfectly lovely evening in the Shedlands with a gentle summer breeze. We can sit in the garden or go down to the ocean or just hang out in the Shed.

Keep hanging in there Blue!

I'm achy today, but had an awesome very late lunch with my Sister. We went to a restaurant/Inn. Awesome food and beautiful place. The weather was lovely and outside there were flowers and herbs, a water fountain and statues, trees and bushes and a pond across the street.

Came home and...there are baby birds in a nest on the porch. From what I could see, the birds were just adorable, but I couldn't tell what kind they were.

Yes Night Star, there is a place in the world where you can go play with the owls. It's the Owl Cafe & Bar Owl Village, Harajuku, Japan outside of Tokyo.

I LOVED seeing the owls; they were so beautiful. They have itty bitty owls and huge owls. You can hold them on your arm and pet them. The barn owls even like their faces massaged.

Oh how sweet! Years ago we had a bird of prey area set up at some pet expo. You could have your picture taken with whatever bird you chose. I regret that I didn't wait in the long line to have a pic taken. That would have been so cool.

Good day, evening, and other appropriate rotation.

I've been wondering why I haven't been making coffee in the morning the past few weeks. I usually brew up 30-60oz each morning, but I haven't been recently. I haven't bean recently, you could say.

A bit mysterious, as I got a bag of excellent Tanzanian from a local roaster 5 or 6 days ago, and it's been on my counter untouched. Instead, I've either skipped coffee, had tea, or journeyed to 7/11 for my morning wake-up.

I couldn't figure it out, until I finally made some coffee this morning. My normal habit is to make coffee quite slowly -- I use a hand-poured Chemex pot; it takes a while. The usual cadence is: wipe sleep from eyes, take kettle downstairs to the still to get water, while water is boiling rinse pot, thermos, and new paper filter, grind beans, pour a little water and allow the coffee to "bloom", then gradually pour splashes of water every minute or so until it's brewed. Not exactly labor intensive, but complex and a bit time consuming.

So while this is going on, I usually clean the kitchen up. Empty dishwasher, clear counters and sink, wipe down surfaces, take out trash perhaps -- you get the idea. All paced by adding additional little splashes of water to the brew. Sort of feels more like I'm earning my coffee that way.

Anyway, my kitchen's been a bit messy lately. Not nasty stale food messy, but sloppier than I'm comfortable with, because I haven't been following my habitual coffee-making routine, mostly.

So I realized this morning that the reason I haven't been drinking as much coffee is that some part of me feels that a messy kitchen is a more proper state right now. I know that's weird, but it's almost like I feel there's undone chaos in life that has been with me, and I (subconsciously perhaps) want that to be reflected in my surroundings. So, I've been keeping my kitchen messy.

Weird, huh?

Anyway, here's some fresh brew for all you of the Shed, and kith and kin, to enjoy this beautiful day.

And to Night Star, here is a Hummingbird Orchid.

Hello dear Ian! You sure do take your coffee seriously. My kitchen is a bit messy too. I have too much stuff. Lol

I absolutely LOVE the pic you left for me! Thank you so much! Such an amazing and beautiful flower!

How have you been? It's been rather quiet in here, but there is always someone around thank goodness.
