Pixie Magic?

So this morning we arose to different weather altogether – overcast and cool and it had rained a little.  My rowan tree and some other plants were decorated with little mercurial droplets – so pretty … of course I know it was nothing to do with nature it is pixie magic left just for me …


Even the last bud on my yellow rose is wide open and sprinkled with droplets on the petals …


Today has been a mixture of trying to complete documents against the clock; tiptoeing round my jungle to avoid the Pixie noticing my presence and an awful dog walk!  Pup disgraced himself with his first serious attempt at ignoring the recall.  I went and collected him but he doubled back so I went and collected him again and put him on his lead.  He went to charge off so I picked him up and put him beside my leg in the correct position and said “There” in my stern naughty puppy voice.  He was ever so good for the rest of the walk through the woods but it made me sad that he had to be on his lead in the woods instead of going bunny hunting however, he does have to learn that when he makes bad choices there are consequences – hopefully tomorrow he gets out of the right side of his bed and we don’t need to repeat the admonishment.

Now if you will excuse me I need to go fill in a few holes which have appeared in my jungle floor … Pup!

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
