Thankfulness Glows

          In our new home everyday this month without internet and with the glow of the fall in full force and as snow falls today while I cook in the kitchen I am reminded how fast the holidays fly by! In the new beautiful backyard I captured these pictures a few days ago of both my cats Tinker Belle and Lewis enjoying being outside yet not committed to it completely as the cold chill was coming in....
As I talked to them I saw how thankful they were in finally being allowed outside in our new home, in our new schedule. They are not fighting much anymore because they don't know whose house this is yet.....
I am thankful for this year of bravery and of soulful learning, I have more to write on those topics this winter I think....

For tomorrow my family, my parents and my brothers will be able to sit with room around my dinning room in my new magical cozy home, this makes my heart full of such joy and peace in that growing older allows such new memories and new holidays to embrace! 
Happy Thankfulness day, may it be full of good food and good times!

Land Mark

      There is a place in my home so beautiful at first light, so peaceful in the sunset evenings and so easy for my husband to let our dogs outside safely while still staying warm and keeping an eye on them the whole time.... It's our new sun room or as my husband calls it 
"The conservatory." 

For me this sun room is welcoming and bright, full of thoughtfulness facing the back yard and big garden. I love that the cats all race outside to hide in the flowers only to meow or paw at the sliding glass doors in order to get back inside for warmth. 
Moving just before winter is crazy, but it does feel so cozy when all of my pets adjust nicely to the new land and find their own routines once again. This room is a land mark for the whole house it is the only way to get down stairs to the master suite. It's connected to my galley way kitchen and it is the brightest room of all....I love my coffee brewing counter being the first thing I see when I wake up, the pantry shelving and my huge growing collection of coffee mugs at my reach. 
This is the room all the pets meet and greet every morning, and where they go one last time before bed in the dark cold nights I love all those open windows in the privacy of our backyard where the cats want to look outside without being stuck in such cold with the afternoon shade this room is always welcoming and I stand there looking out unto the landscape of my new life ahead! 
This Sun room is my true land mark for beginning my day or in saying goodnight to world before descending into the cozy basement bedding. I am in awe of my new place, everyday I am grateful and I am thankful for these walls of pure love to fill my heart and build my strength in being the best person I can be! With arms wide open I love my cats and my dogs, I chat it up with my new neighbors and cook dinner for old friends......This is the land mark of my life, a deeper connection to the outside world with such a safe sacred sun room to greet me with a sunny "Good Morning!" each new day :-D

Sacred Land

Sacred Land is what I see all around me since I moved into this new place a week ago, I have been so busy up and down the stairs, out in the garage, in the garden and in the backyard....this land is sacred I can feel it as we head into winter so quickly. I know that by living here I can grow things, learn and love every minuet once again outside. The cats and dogs watch me walk around with them and I talk about the wonder of this place....they all seem to understand and get it now after one full week of everyday being beside me in this new backyard, we are safely tucked in at night surrounded by this sacred land. I am ready to entertain company now, ready to nap with my pets and cook again. The front yard is all a magical medicine garden which I have eaten flowers from it everyday this week in the stress of moving and unpacking I have sat on my front patio in the sun light petting my cat Jazzy telling her to be good and stay close to home so i can watch over her.....the world here looks BEAUTIFUL and I am being called to save the land all around me I can feel it in the breeze and in the joy of waving at my new neighbors, This morning as I drink my coffee I read this article that spoke right to me! "Marrying the Land." I have always been connected to this earth but lately I feel like I need to understand better and create even more with my time left to live, the taste of the flowers makes me smile when my hours are distracted by boxes and I feel instantly healthy just at the thought of such beautiful blossoms growing around my front door, WELCOME HOME is what this sacred land says to me......and I will faithfully love it right on back!
