MUCH TO DO

The autumn brings a whole new list. feathers-003

I need to stand in front of the board and make that list today.

In fact, there are a number of lists to make so I don’t get derailed during this next month.

So, THOSE Lists.

Above you see Mr Flowers and The Duke’s feathers in their ever-increasing wreath.  Every year many of the peacock feathers go home with people as found gifts. But one day this avian artwork will get so heavy it will fall clean off the wall.

It is Sunday.

There is a lot of other stuff in my head this morning.  Not blog stuff. Or I should say not stuff for the blog.  Nothing to do with the farm. Other stuff that needs plans and adjustments made. A  turn in one of the lives that is intertwined with so many other lives, as we all are.  Spinning its repercussions out into the familial world. Life is fluid. It demands the ability to make swift changes. Recognise. Adapt. Create.

Dad used to say something has put: ” A spanner in the works”.

Then we would sit down with a big sheet of architects drafting paper and work out how to fix it.

But this is not our farm blog story.  The farm is looking forward to the sunrise. The animals in the farm roll on without a care for humans problems.

I hope you have a lovely day.

Love celi

  2. Your dad sounds a lot like mine… recognize the challenge and make a plan! It’s the only way to go. Peacock feathers and wreath are beautiful!

  3. The cool thing is that he had you kids do this… “Then we would sit down with a big sheet of architects drafting paper and work out how to fix it.”
    No doubt one of the reason you are so adaptable and can create and do so very much!!! xo

  4. it is, without doubt, a season of change…the winds of crisis are in the air…by which I mean “crisis” in the sense of turning point, or the need for decisions to be made…I feel it here too, and it feels GOOD. Enter the intuitions/instincts you mentioned in the last post. This is their time to shine, I suppose.

      • I agree …It’s the function of change..sets our heads on edge and our hearts somehow trust ! Are we where we want to be, or need to be ? Hmm

  5. May all of the autumnal changes bring good and kindly things. Even the traumatic and dramatic can be followed by healing, hope, and peace. And so may all of it be!

    Your peacock feather wreath is a brilliant design. No-intervention beauty. Let the parts intertwine to support each other and, in the process, themselves. A lovely metaphor for the larger theme of the post. You have such a way of noticing and bringing these thoughts to us so sweetly: no fuss, just gently reminding us of what’s in front of our noses everyday. I love that.

    xo,

    • I could probably throw that wreath like a frisbee and it would stay together with all the stems latticed in between each other. it looks like that because I cannot bear to cut the feathers. It is huge though – c

  6. It’s a planning time… My Pa loves lists, but at 94, he forgets where he left them, so there’s always a handful of old envelopes with scribbled lists on the back down the side of his chair, marking his place in his book, used as a coaster for his cuppa. And it’s always old envelopes. I know where I go my love of lists…

  7. Haha!! “A spanner in the works” is a phrase that sometimes pops out of me, to questioning looks from the Californian locals😀😀

  8. First… what’s a ‘spanner’? ; o )
    And second… it seems as the season is changing… you’re life is going to change. I’m sorry to here that someone you’re connected with will make a change in your life. As you said, we are ALL connected. And if you only were more aware of that… we’d be nicer to each other.
    Wishing you the best in what lies ahead. Cecile

  9. I’ve come to think that a spanner somewhere in the works is more-or-less to be expected, and smooth sailing is a bonus. My expectations then become realistic and operating mode appropriately accommodating!

  10. You make your lists on a board, I have a sheaf of papers on my bedside table 🙂 ! Oh what a joy to put more and more ticks next to lines written! ‘A turn in one of the lives/ . . . . may all plans pertaining run smoothly without too many spanners in the works . . . . honestly, could not think of the US word either . . . .

  11. Oh I SO love the colour palette in those tail feathers. No matter the day or circumstances, seeing a peacock tail feather has always made me smile… Such a wonderful wreath!

  12. Hope all is OK? We fully understand the concept of a spanner in the works…we have a toolbox full but luckily we’re like you, we just work out how we’re going to fix things! That wreath is stunning.
