Friday Five and Solstice




Good morning,
the last friday before Christmas and time for

I

Finally the traces of the renovation are removed
 and all things are at their places again.
Almost all things. Some I haven't found...

II

Yesterday I got some foods from the "Table" (Charity).
That's always an especially surprise and I'm grateful for them.

III

The last days were very exhausting and difficult and I'm very tired.
Hours of striking in the cold at the "Table", long ways, many things to do.
Long ways in cold and on icy smooth roads are very strenuous with bicycle 
and I very suffer under stimulus overflow by traffic noise.
 But what should I do?
I can be happy when cycling is still possible, later, in the snow, 
all my ways will be much more difficult.
Honestly, I'm not a friend of wintertime!

IV

I get physiotherapy again and it is very painful.
Directly after that I can hardly go.
Today for the last time.
But now the beautiful side of life:

V



On wednesday we made our traditional Solstice-walk 
through the forest to a mountain.
Every year the same.
At this time we had wonderful weather: frosty, but sunny, 
truly the nice side of wintertime.
We have very enjoyed it.






















On the mountain we prepared our gifts for the elves and dwarfs 
and, of course, for the animals.
Every year the same ritual at the same place - I think, they are waiting for us.
And every year it's different nice.
We wish everyone out there a blessed celebration and well survive the winter.
Pray that it will not be too hard.
Thanks for everything we get from the earth, the air, the fire and the water.




Than we went home by the low sun...





Merry Christmas! Enjoy your holidays.
Have a blessed peaceful time.

  10. Darling Mascha, I do admire the way you soldier on through life's trials - even finding time to share your talent for photography with us and your food with the woodland creatures. The feast was a work of art. What a wonderful thing to do. I think you're right - I'll bet they were waiting.

    I hope you have an absolutely perfect and splendid 2017.
