The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

for my ears
the sweet, content coos from the doves who watch me as I putter about at the potting table
for my eyes
(and nose) … the lilac is blooming!
what a gorgeous sight and scent they bring
for my mouth
one of the easiest and tastiest pasta salads
rotini pasta* celery* carrots*broccoli * black olives * cherry tomatoes
oil and vinegar and spices

for my soul
my little potting table under the pergola

for my feet
sharing the warm grass with his feet
(that thankfully, are always beside mine)
for my hands
wreath making

it was time to change up the urns 
but the pussy willow that had been sitting in them from Easter was still looking good,
so I cut it into shorter pieces, turned them into bundles and created a wreath 
"let's be like wildflowers
letting our souls  be scattered by the wind.
let us grow wild and free
tall and brave
in places that we dream,
in the places where our longings are filled.
let us grow between the cracks
of brokenness 
and we will make everything
reflecting on the week

Hello Deb and thank you for stopping by my blog ;-)
I love your pussy willow wreath ! .. your art work is beautiful.
I love listening too all the birds in my garden , especially when I am puttering in it .. my potting table needs some loving .. it serves me so well.
I too am a tree hugger .. I touch my trees(most of my plants too .. haha)just so they know I appreciate them .. plants and animals can convey such a sense of peace and happiness.
