Physical Labor

Sometimes you have to step outside of yourself, and just physically exert yourself, having something tangible at the end of the day to have started, or completed that makes life a little better, if even in a superficial way. Chair progress almost done
Working on a homemade fermented Gingerale, I will post the recipe once success is achieved, i have just begun the starter of sugar, ginger and water, the whole process will take 2 weeks, i am excited. Stripping the coffee table, and a little disappointed in what I found, oh well, maybe a repaint instead of a stain. Reading Reading Reading, napping, gazing at pear tree buds, sparrows, and orange sunsets through my bedroom window, in late afternoon. Using the hell out of my juicer. Being a better housekeeper, is keeping my mind a little less cluttered. Planting here and there. What are you working on? What gives your monkey mind a rest?

Stringing together fragments and pieces while looking for wholeness. Gratitude for Breathing fully Sleeping through the night for the first time in (2) months Mid Afternoon dozing to the hum of the mower outside, and a very vocal owl Sun streaming across my room through branches and landing on my face Reading beautiful words and sharing beautiful pain from "A Journal of Solitude" May Sarton. Filling my body with fresh natural food to nurture and counter the strong steroid and anti-biotic I am on, a different kind of breathing. Tell me about your fragments and pieces, I would love to hear about the pieces you grasp onto to sustain you.
