|This picture shows the original planting of lettuce. These grew, the leaves|
were harvested, and then some of the plants were let go to seed.
Do you remember me writing that my Mango trees had an abundance of flowers? Well I think that the King Parrots and their cohorts have been dining on the flowers and possibly the young fruit. Some young fruit also dropped during the heavy rain we experienced recently. Oh well there are still some mangoes left on the trees.
Don has gone fishing this morning. It is a spectacular morning to be in the great outdoors. I see that he has left the crab pots behind so I won't be expecting any mud crabs for dinner. It would be nice if he does catch tonight"s dinner. However I think there may be still too much fresh water in the river from the recent rains.
While working in the garden, I have been enjoying the company of Banjo and Moxie. They have been racing around the dam and running in and out of the water. They really are very lucky puppies to have each other and tons of space to in which to roam and play.

Later today I intend to go through our Christmas decorations as a bit of a decluttering exercise. There is no room in our small home for a large Christmas tree, so I don't need as much in the way of decorations.
Today is All Soul's Day. A time to pause and think of the loved ones who are no longer with us. I think not only of the relatives I knew but those I never met stretching back through the generations. The pioneers, saddle-makers, explorers, farmers, stonemasons, nurses, business owners who were my forebears.
|Reading is an activity that nourishes my soul.|
Also today I will capture some time to care and nourish my soul. Whether that be lunch by the river or by making time for a colour meditation by working on one of my colouring projects.
I hope you too find some time today to take care of your soul.
