#aprillove - CLOUDS - 
I never looked at clouds before I had Sheba and we started to go to the dog park. I am sure she is the most photographed dog of all times. She is teaching me to look at both sides of many things.

4.23. A CLOUD. But it's enough for today's prompt. 😉 #aprillove2018 with @susannahconway #taleswithfriends #ourworldinskies
#AprilLove2018 - Day 22 - #SecretWish
It is in sight, within reach, if I just keep moving toward the light. 
Making wishes is all well and good, but you have to work to make them come true.

Day 22. A SECRET WISH? To stop time ... or, perhaps even turn back the clock a bit. #aprillove2018 with @susannahconway #taleswithfriends
Day 103 - Don't Cry For Me, Argentina -
#365somethings2018 
I think I was doing a rumba with my Arthur Murray dance instructor to the music of Don't Cry For Me, Argentina. Or was it the cha cha. No, I think it was the tango. Oh who. An remember after all these 
years?

Day 21. A little bit of NOURISH time. (And, as we say in my house ... move your feet, lose your seat.  But she moved over. Eventually) #aprillove2018 with @susannahconway #taleswithfriends #riekerandkenai #germanshorthairedpointer #onmydeck

Sooo Big! Heather and Sloane circa 1981 and circa 2018. There a little family resemblance. #motheranddaughter #taleswithfriends #sloanemarie @hshellen
22 april ✨ looking at my camera feed it might appear that my #secret wish is to be in the sky (#crow #hawk #hummingbird) or in the ground (#garden) ✨ my #secretwish is to find myself in #middleearth or with #lylabelacqua #aprillove2018  #taleswithfriends #anotherworld
April 22. Not sure it actually qualifies as a secret wish but I surely would like to sail on the Skipjack Hilda M. Willing again. That time on the Chesapeake was well beyond magical. #aprillove2018 #taleswithfriends

Lots of unexpected surprises at Savill Gardens today. Amazing how a sudden burst of colour and a few warm rays of sunshine can touch your heart, boost your energy and even make the world a happier place.

#aprillove - SECRET WISH -
It might sound strange but I have never wished for anything. Neither have I desired for anything. What good would either do - wishing and desiring? I just do/get what is needed. If I was to have a secret wish, it would be to experience those feelings - but just for a tiny moment.

Rainbows down to the tips of my toes, keeping me going when I hit a bump in the road. Like today, when i thought i had figured out the ending to Book 2 and realized a huge flaw in the plot and now I have to rethink and rewrite the last four chapters.

Getting re-acquainted with my sewing stuff. Experimenting with free motion sewing without sketching first or at all. I used a photo and the design in the fabric to create the picture. Not finished yet. The material has a few built in frames for more pictures.

Day 21 of #aprillove2018 - secret wish... that I’d been on the ball enough to snaffle a ticket (or two) for the @manics upcoming tour & maybe get the chance to hang out with fellow Manics loving Instabuddies like @petraharries & maybe even get to meet @porthjess. Will just have to contend with constant listening to this instead #resistanceisfutile  #taleswithfriends #secretwish #manics #manicstreetpreachers #music #fangirl #wishing #instabuddies
So how's your weekend going? What fun have you been having? Or maybe it's a quiet restful couple of days for you?

I'm enjoying a slower day. The sun is still shining but a breeze is taking the edge out of the heat, so I've been out in the garden planting all kinds of seeds and imagining all the beautiful and delicious things they're going to grow into. I'm also going to do my planning for the week, knowing that I have some fun things to look forward to. I'm going with the flow, and not even wearing my watch, just taking the time I want with whatever I'm doing.

I'm letting my mind wander as I do, being present in the moment, but allowing my thoughts to come and go, sometimes tagging an idea for further investigation, sometimes letting things that don't serve me float on by.

Spending less time online helps me stay in my own lane too, instead of being caught up in what other people are doing, comparing and feeling I'm missing out, but still being inspired by the good stuff that catches my attention.

Snapping away at things around the house and garden, angles and shapes and textures and colours and light that capture me, that feel like a moment captured, the best shots saying something about how I see my world.

The keys of the piano stretching away from me, stepping stones along a path, some bright, some dark, smooth parts and parts with obstacles, each one a sound on its own, but with the potential to mix together in ways that either set your teeth on edge or make your skin tingle. Melodies and harmonies, discord demanding a resolution, emotion wrung from every chord. That potent combination of logical, mathematical, scientific sound frequencies and timings, and the indefinable resonance felt in our souls.

A glimpse into the meanderings of my mind on this Sunday afternoon!

Just a typical Saturday night at the Shellen’s. Saturday Night Fever.... #polyester #feathers #bigsunglass #mustache #taleswithfriends
The things you find in your camera roll ...
This photo was in the midst of a lot of photos of yellow things—photos I’d taken for a yellow-themed grid.
I happened to notice the ants marching up and down the trunk of a paperbark tree and was attracted by the contrast of the textures and colours of the bark and the ants.
I think I must’ve used the digital camera for this shot because I can actually see the brown stripes on the bulbous abdomen of one of those ants!

April 21. Nourishing the body is important. We don’t last long without it. But, for me, nourishing my soul is equally critical. Almost nothing revives me like having my hands in dirt. Planting, dividing and replanting. Waiting to see the glory that Ma Nature gives forth. With just a wee bit of human effort. #aprillove2018 #taleswithfriends

Hello, from Saturday evening. 
What are you up to, InstaFriends?
Abigail is taking a bath in the tub behind me. Benjamin is already in bed. 
Once Abigail is in bed, my Saturday night will consist of jammies, Amy and Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout, and (maybe) a glass of Prosecco.

A treat this morning.
Iced Tea and Raspberry Croissant at Quebrada Baking Company in Wellesley, MA.
One way to nourish the body.
It is vital to nourish mind and spirit, as well. 
I venture to say that I might be able to go longer without food and drink than I can without hugs, books, music, conversation, etc.

‘nourish’ simply means to supply the body with food and drink. but there is more ... such as nourishment for mind, heart, and soul:
 associate with sharing -> ‘a loaf of  bread, a jug of wine, and thou’
->
or shall we go tapa hopping in Jerez De La Frontera?
-> “Make tea, not war.” ~Monty Python -> "Tea ceremony" is not the best translation of chado, which literally means "tea way" ("cha" means "tea"; "do" means "way").
->
excerpts from tea ceremony History
 http://japanese-tea-ceremony.net/history.html
->
Drinking of green tea was known in China from the fourth century. Later Eisai visited China and on his return to Japan founded the Zen Buddhism. In 1211, Eisai wrote the first treatise on tea in Japan. ->
As tea  parties gained popularity among thirteenth century nobles, the large number of guests and teas lead to passing around tea bowl which probably explains why only one tea bowl is used during today’s Tea Ceremony. (a similar tradition in tuscany, shares a bowl of wine...)
->
The tea ceremony continued to evolve into the art of Chanoyu. Zen priest called Murata Shukou became known as the father of the tea ceremony because the etiquette and spirit of tea were originated by him. ->
so. 
drink your tea.

One week ago today we had to let this sweet girl go. It is rough those decisions we make for our babies. It’s been a hard week. She was with us 11 years and with no idea her age or history. She was quirky and sweet, she loved her daddy. Lillie Jean was a rescue, she was thin, had crusty ears, a hernia from being spayed and wouldn’t look at you. We drove away, a block down the road I said turn around, I can’t leave her there. She’ll never be adopted with her quirks. I brought her home and she blossomed. She wagged her tail, she raised her head and made eye contact, she ran with the big dogs in the dog park and howled at sirens. All 4lbs of her, she taught me patience and unconditional love. She was our Lillie, Lillie Bug, the Lills, Pigeon and just Bug. I love you, forever in my heart. #lilliejean #crazyhouseofdogs #thenthereweretwo #heartbroken #adoptdontshop #chihuahua #missyoueveryday #taleswithfriends

Eamon turns 13 tomorrow . These were his little Baby Eamon monkey shoes from #Robeez bought in Rehoboth beach by his Auntie A. Michelle @drumsinger . .

I am proving that it is possible to do something creative daily for three months plus. I am being my change. .

#aprillove - RAINBOW -
Sometimes there are no rainbows no matter how much you look or want. Then you make your own.

A little Mommy and Son post brunch beer in the sunshine. Except mine looks like Attack of the Giant Beer 🏃‍♀️🍺 🤣 #taleswithfriends #yearofformation #replenish
That @claireylove sure knows how to wield magic. Same spot, fog has gone & sunshine abounds. #taleswithfriends #fogbegone #sunnyday #spring #blueskies #greatoutdoors #magic #beauty #nature #aprillove2018
Looking through my photos for inspiration for today’s April Love prompt I found a photo of a rainbow lorikeet.
.
So here is a photo my Dad took. Mum and Dad feed the lorikeets and on this one particular day (it hadn’t happened before or since) a whole lot of lorikeets perched on the washing line (presumably waiting to be served afternoon tea). 😆

Out for a #rainbow brunch with J before he goes back to Edinburgh for his exams. Sunshine still outside too, so a beer in the sun may follow! 😀🌈💜 #aprillove2018 #taleswithfriends #yearofformation #replenish #bostonteaparty
Day 20 #aprillove2018 - rainbow. Nope, not much chance of one today but plenty of fog. #taleswithfriends #foggyday #gardens #cotswolds #nature #greatoutdoors #crazyweather

Some local #rainbow action from earlier this year. Always a special symbol for me. Happy weekend 🌈 #quietwriting #rainbows
