renew, regroup, retry

after a lousy week at work and a plethora of migraine days, i took off with some friends for a mountain holiday getaway...



the weekend was spent eating good food - that i didn't have to cook, getting lots of hugs and kisses from my littlest friends, watching fireworks, walks around the lake and even a seance or two...



little girl and little boy laughter is a wonderful balm to the soul and the love from good friends - adults, teens and toddlers - heals in so many ways...

the weekend was a chance to renew my soul, to think about my life and how to regroup it to be what i truly want and an opportunity to retry things that used to come easy to me, but have been taken for granted or neglected all together...

teaching star light, star bright to my littlest playmates was such a wonderful experience, watching them repeat the words in earnest and blowing kisses to the stars to carry their wishes to the universe (their idea) was so very magical...

i came home yesterday to a heat wave...it is so hot outside that just stepping out the door for a moment is overwhelming... however the garden needed checking and tending this afternoon, so i put on my garden shoes...



and headed to the garden to water...



this is causing part of the problem...


not a cloud to be found... we desperately need some rain...

but i did find a few things that were ready to come in...



i'm hoping to rid myself of this latest migraine and head back to work tomorrow. i have a lot of thinking still to do, decisions to make as to my life and work and my health...
i hope you had a wonderful 4th if you live in or are from the US and if not that you had a great weekend.
blessings

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the sweet compliment to my art! ;) I enjoyed your post, it's hard to imagine that once we didn't know the words to "Starlight, starbright...", isn't that funny? It's so cool that you got to teach it to the little ones. I hope you are feeling better these days. :)

Nice to meet you! Thanks for your lovely comments :)
Still hot there? We had a bit of a heatwave but it's raining again now and already the scorched grass is starting to shoot!

Where were the mountains?
Hope your migraine leaves soon... horrid things.
And, good luck with the thinking....
