Thursday 27th February

Had a very lazy day today.
Not much to talk about really.
Just decided I didn’t need to do anything so I didn’t.
Was good.
Spent most of the day laying on my bed watching ‘The Mentalist’.
Did get outside at one point and planted a tree we had been given a few weeks ago.
Hadn’t really been able to decide where to put it but finally figured it had to be put in the ground so put it in the new garden where the aviary used to be and hope that it doesn’t grow too huge!

Shoshannah made dinner – Pad Thai with grilled chicken. Very yummy.

I saw this poem today.
Really spoke for me.

I got out of bed
on two strong legs.
It might have been
otherwise. I ate
cereal, sweet
milk, ripe, flawless
peach. It might
have been otherwise.
I took the dog uphill
to the birch wood.
All morning I did
the work I love.

At noon I lay down
with my mate. It might
have been otherwise.
We ate dinner together
at a table with silver
candlesticks. It might
have been otherwise.
I slept in a bed
in a room with paintings
on the walls, and
planned another day
just like this day.
But one day, I know,
it will be otherwise.

~ Jane Kenyon

This blog also came to me at the right time.
Stone Cold Grief.
I can really vouch for that need to be in control.
When everything in your life is so out of control you really desperatly need to have control of the small things and when you lose that it tips you over the edge.
I have experienced that so many times but didn’t recognize it until recently.

Jesika and Evan have safely traveled their Day 2 across the Nullabor.
Port Augusta – Eucla –  954.8 kms in 14 hrs.
After seeing her photos of the Bunda Cliffs it makes my feet itch to get over there to see them too!
They look absolutely amazingly breathtaking.

  1. That is a brilliant poem and rams home the fragility of ones assumptions. Also gives you hope…things will be different.
