Springtime Travels to the First Day of Summer

Happy 1st Day of Summer,
my friends!

Honestly, it doesn't really feel like summer, yet, on the island, as it's been very windy and cooler than usual for this time of year, but I don't mind at all since, the older I get, the less tolerance I have for heat, (both the meteorological and the menopausal types!)


Blue skies, cool breezes and late spring temps, suit me just fine, especially when I'm out on my daily walks, and sometimes

I need to exert myself, pushing my body weight up those steep country roads to capture the pretties perched on those pointy peaks!

Many times, I am greeted by lovely folks who, having just witnessed my feverish climb to the floral finish line, suddenly sprint up from their seats to offer me a cool refreshment and something sweet - a hospitable gesture for taking such a keen interest in their village, and one greatly appreciated by the recipient of their generous reward!


Other times, I prefer scouting my surroundings during
siesta, since it's quiet and I'm basically the only one around,
the area absent of concerned grandmas gazing at me,

(as I risk my life trying to snap grapes from a rooftop), 
and thus, having distracted them from their crochet!

That's about the time I make my way downhill, to safer surfaces, much like the serene scene in the video above, where amid a meadow of Queen Anne's Lace, I lounged and lingered in loveliness, as I joined the dainty dwellers in their midday danceto the rhythm of the breezy, late spring beat.

Thank you all for your continued prayers, which are very

much appreciated. Hope you enjoyed my springtime
adventures on this first day of summer! What does the 
season look like and feel like in your neck of the woods?

Thanks for visiting!

A Special Request

 Hello friends, hope you are all well.


There are three people who mean the world to me,
facing some health challenges at this time.

I look up to the wide, spectacular sky,
asking God to give them strength,

and down to the flourishing earth, 
where new growth grants me hope.

I believe in the power of prayer, positive energy 
and good wishes, and I ask you to please keep 
my three loved ones in your thoughts.

Thank you.

Wishing you 
a lovely weekend,
