Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so that each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.

The Party By The Pond continued well into the evening on Thursday. Izzy and Bella joined me out on the deck near sunset.
Bella didn’t care to have her picture taken. She was hunkered down in the shadows of the hedge and preferred not to be noticed in case there was something worth hunting in her vicinity.
Izzy was so busy hiding behind the dandelions and the grasses that she didn’t notice I was taking pictures of her. She’s not usually so cooperative. Bees and moths and damselflies were a good distraction from the camera.
Izzy inspired me to get down low and see the world from her perspective. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that, and it was a marvelous way to say goodbye at a grass roots level.
The mind is like a richly woven tapestry in which the colors are distilled from the experiences of the senses, and the design drawn from the convolutions of the intellect.

This is another scheduled post. If all is going as planned, I should have most of the kitchen packed up by the time this goes out. I have two more days before the movers show up. They will be packing up my computer. Perhaps I’ll have the laptop to check in. If not, my scheduled posts will take over until I’m settled in Back East.
Thanks for keeping up with me. Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
P.S. Since I have a minute, a brief update. The packing is going well, and I think we’ll have everything (or almost everything) ready to go when the movers arrive on Tuesday morning. Yay!
The visit with my granddaughters was wonderful, albeit much too short. Maddy and I picked flowers, some of which we put in her hair. The rest went into a bouquet for the kitchen table.
I put the beads in Maddy’s hair, too. I think I did okay putting a few beads in the hair of a squiggly, wiggly, giggly four year old girl. Actually, I’m surprised she stayed still for as long as she did (even if we did it at her request).
The charity dinner and dance recital was lovely (it was a lyrical and ballet dance recital to benefit the Nationwide Children’s Hospital). Emma performed brilliantly. She’s a beautiful and talented young girl.
I wish I could have spent more time with them both.
