I got a lot of firewood from my lovely neighbours today, so now I have this huge pile in my garage & a nice & toasty house. I take my hat off to him, that has worked a lifetime doing that…chopping down trees, tending to the woodland. Hard work...& think, he’s way over 80 & still does it with a smile. Then there’s her, gosh, her kindness radiates. I can’t even explain it, but she somehow teaches me gratitude on a whole different level - & grace. She reminds me that there’s a lot to be thankful for, it’s just a matter of perspective… Guess what I’m most thankful for at the moment is that this hollow space in my heart’s slowly being filled again…through kindness & the simple thing of being seen, & opening my own eyes to the little things in life - that actually is life itself. ~Linn. Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire. ~François Duc de La Rochefoucauld.

N othing's like the familiar smell of bonfire that's seeped into every fiber of your clothes...& when you free your hair from the jail warming your head...the scent just burst out like you're in the midst of the burning times. ...but this time it's a calm soothing feeling that grows inside. If I could bottle three scents it would be rotting autumn leaves, honeysuckle & bonfire. That's the definition of life, love & pure bliss to me. Midwinter open fire bbq's are little slices of warm summer pie...& I can't be more sorry that I haven't been able to enjoy it more this season. But couldn't risk getting sick again.

Make a huge thermos of bouillon, hot chocolate, tea or whatever tickles your fancy & go out & play with the elements. ;) I miss hunting down unique clothes in various places. Can tell I'm starved in that department too... But it's r
S o, this afternoon aka yesterday I ended up at an Outlet thingy about 20 minutes from where I live. Loooooads of cool clothes, shoes, etc. So my son got some cool new Vans shoes & a couple of sweaters from A b e r c r o m b i e & F i t c h ♥ (...which I absolutely adore!!) , & I...well, I died for a second there & went straight to Le Creuset heaven!!!!!!! Thank the Gods for my mum & her sensible world view. "It'll still be here the next time you come. Think about what you need, what'll fit in, not what you want. Come on, lets go now..." xD Haha! I actually almost cried in there! :P I still got the nice lady in the store to find out if they could get the pancake pan in cream though... So I'll eagerly wait for my phone to ring after the holidays. :P ...& I'll be like a kid in a candy shop when I receive their monthly newsletter. Wooooho!!! ;D Have to say that the things they make lasts a lifetime if it's treated properly.
