Little Things

Permaculture at 012A day of many things, but mostly of remembering and giving thanks…thanks for little things…like fresh, Spring water.

Of a beautiful card made for me by a visitor… cottage 025and the wonderful, heartfelt message she wrote.
Of all the little things we happen upon in our daily lives… those whose hearts we touch and all who touch our hearts.

  1. hi Colette, beautiful post….I am not receiving notifications of your new posts on your new site, even though I have donated and received confirmation. keep having to check into wordpress any ideas what I haven’t done right ? Blessings xx

    1. Send me the email address you want the posts to go to and I shall add it to the list. If that doesn’t work, then check that your wordpress account and email address are linked…that is your WP account was opened using that email address. Most everyone is sorted, but there are a few left on the holding list who have not linked in. I shall check that for your name.

    2. I have checked that list and you’re not on it…your name appears on the subscriber accepted list. Let me know if you don’t receive the next post which is due to go out tomorrow…they are scheduled for a twice weekly drop. The last one went out on 15th April.

    3. i have checked all the folders and it appears you have not accepted the invitation, even though you avatar is showing up on the website. Anyway, I have resent the invite and if you accept then it should show up in my email. I think the little people are at play! 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on Aussiedlerbetreuung und Behinderten – Fragen and commented:
    Schaafe, Brennessel und Löwnzahn, alle Bäume und andere Dinge, sie meinten, es sich unter Raub unter dem Nagel zu reißen! Gelle, alles was Got gab, das nageln die sich als deren Eigentum und Verwaltung zu! Dafür gibt es dann Rußland und die Deutschen, die dem Einhalt gebieten in weiser Wissenschaft zur Natur lebend und mit Kräften des Schöpfer! Nur Ihr müßt aufwachen und endlich wissen, wem Ihr dient! Ich bin Vieles, arm und Elektriker, der Euch Euren Schreiß repariert, oder auch liebe und Bruder in Leben und Geist! Nur Beides geht nicht, siehe Lipka und die mir den Hahn abdrehend zum atmen in Freiheit, weil ich Besitz am Reich der Deutschen habe! Deswegen kommt die mit der Kraft und dem Schneider aus der Schröderhöhle und publiziert deren Macht in staatenloser Gewalt und mit Gesetzen, die sie nie erschaffen hat und deren Bande auch nicht! Sonst hätte die ja ein Statement der Besatzer gezeigt! Glück, Auf, meine Heimat!

  3. My vine nasturtium seeds were saved from last years 2 plants and some from my cousin’s next door. I’m happy to say they all came up when I planted them in the front garden. I had so many I gave some seedlings away, and they are just starting to flower now. Nasturtiums were great Grandma Jones favorite flower and we keep up the family tradition!.

  4. Thanks so much for this beautiful post! I am feeling SO bad today, and this is just what I needed!

  5. Oh, how true, Collette! It truly is the little things that people (and animals) remember years later! And the wonderful fact is that those little things don’t have to cost anything, so anyone can perform them! Even a smile, at the right time, can lift someone’s day.

    Keep up the good work!
