A day at Long Hill
~ ~ ~
Barbie weekend at Hopie's house!
I surprised Abigail and Natalie with new Barbies and a new purple jeep for them to drive around in.
I raided my daughter's garden when I went to pick up the children.
We had beans and tomatoes for dinner and a vase of fresh flowers on the bedside table.
I met my daughter at a Massachusetts trustee of reservations property on Sunday.
We walked around enjoying the property, which was absolutely beautiful.
Afterward I went to a poetry reading on the property.
Various authors from a newly published poetry book read. The book is called, Leaning Toward Light, Poems for gardens and the hands that tend them.
It was a beautiful evening. I'm so glad I got a chance to do it.
On Tuesday night I went back to the same property to attend an autumnal equinox sound healing.
It was a guided meditation with drums and bells. It was beautiful and relaxing.
I have been getting to work about a half hour early because of the timing of all the school traffic.
If I leave later it takes me twice as long to get there so....
I have time for a short hike on a beautiful trail before work.
I sat on this moss covered rock and did a short meditation one morning and then hiked back to my car.
The leaves are just beginning to turn here in Massachusetts.
Oaks are always the last to turn and mostly they just turn brown and then fall.
They are just too stubborn to let go.
