September in pictures

September heaved with tears.  And change. Good and dreadful. But it is an important month to commemorate.  A vale of tears  – a valley – a journey we took together. So, here are my favourite pictures from September. Somehow these got completely out of order, but I know you will forgive me. A girl needs her …

Letters For My Baby Girl

The Second Fellowship Book. Letters for my Baby Girl. “Yes my darling girl. That is you.” Our last and first book Letters for my little Sister  was written by a  group of women from The Fellowship who created  an extraordinarily honest and powerful anthology of discussions on The Menopause.  It is a very individual and ground breaking …

breakfast in the fog

By myself… because no-one else here is as moved by fog as much as I am, but thats ok. No-one else finds delight in moving amongst the blanket of droplets that remind me of the sea. But thats ok. You see,  no-one else here, the people who grew up on the plains,  realises that the sounds …

Eight More sleeps

Then I fly out to California to prepare for the jump over the ditch to New Zealand. I will stay the night in L.A. – before I fly out. I often feel like a diver decompresssing up into the world. If I do it slowly my blood will not bubble.  I have to ease my way back …

Fallen clothing

It is the time of year when I start the day wearing a few extra layers.    No, you are not going to talk me into using the F word quite yet but there is a wee chill in the air when the dogs and I set out to walk both farms. So I wear all …

Good Boo Hunting

I know, that like me, you are feeling wretched about Daisy,  sadly soothed by Big Dogs gentle slide into the after world and in a killing rage about the mink murdering so many chickens that night.    I read all your loving comments during the following days. This Fellowship we have is such a wonderful place to be. You have …

A dream

Do you remember I told you about that young man, (who actually found me on the woofer site – got  in touch then disovered that I was only 8 miles from the acre plot that he intends to turn into a gently organically, sustainably grown vegetable garden). Did I tell you about him? He has …

A D-cision

Last night, as I took a quick shot of the sunset then raced back to the house to finish all the work in there that was piling up- I made a Decision. It is always important to look at your objectives and then re-evaluate and make a decision. So let’s do that. a) Have I achieved …

Bites

Dentally Challenged. That’s me – after spending way too long in a dentist’s chair yesterday getting three permanent crowns in.  Which did not stop me selling books though. Even the dentist is buying a copy of ‘Letters’ for his reception room now and his assistants are ordering them too. Luckily our Jess, the last of the Woofettes, completed her gardening …

Come with me

To the West Barn across the way and back again. Just pictures. You know all the names. I hope you all have a lovely day. Your friend on the farmy, miss c
