First of all, the recipes have just been posted over at Bealtaine Cottage Kitchen on the Good Life website…and here’s a link:
Sammy-Bear is well and truly zoned out here on the sofa.
I was going to sit down, for I’ve been out most of the day at the pond, finishing clearing the pond-weed! Oh…at last…job done! I stood and watched his restful sleep and decided to sit elsewhere! He’s a lovely boy who deserves his comfort! The signs of season change and early autumn are now quite visible from the windows of the cottage, with lots of yellow appearing on the young Ash trees. By the way, there are lots of Ash seeds for sale and these trees are very, very easy to grow…even as Bonsai! Here’s the link to the seed site…
You can see from the following pics the amount of clearing I’ve done.
It was a mammoth task and I’m jolly glad it’s over! The next task involves continuing to clear around the banks and the woodland around the pond.
The water is cloudy but this should settle in the next day or so.Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it. Buddha
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
John Wooden I have a mind to just get on with things…head down into the wind, not looking to right nor left and working until I’m exhausted.
This is probably why I have refused the help of others and never allowed woofers to stay here…I’ve always been stubborn!
However, it must be said that I love a challenge and hard work is good for mind and body, regardless of age. Rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world–making the most of one’s best.
