a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Sunday...

was a me day.  I practiced being a human being and not a human doing.  I enjoyed the sun, the creek, the animals and just being. 
The Kubota crew removed the fallen trees from the spring pond.  We have still not cleared all the tornado and ice damage from a couple of years ago...but we're getting there.

Manly men celebrating the removal of a huge stump from the pond.
I loved on horses
and Ki got some herding lessons.
Enjoyed some wild flowers
and some not so wild flowers.
This weekend was long over due for me.  I needed some down time without work, enjoying the beauty around me.  I was showered with blessings and my heart is lighter.

Sometimes it is just nice to "be"! Your weekend sounded relaxing and refreshing.

I was a human-doing today, but I enjoyed every moment of watching my daughter ride. Makes me long for days of old!

Have a wonderful week! =)

Such lovely photos. What a beautiful day.

It's good to celebrate being a human 'being.' We all have to remember to do that more often. I'm glad you reminded us. The flowers are lovely. I can almost smell them.

I like the 'being' rather than the 'doing'. It's important in order to get the brain in the right place.
But, it looks like there was some doing and you made progress.

Rudee said...

Well that sounds like perfection. Can't really improve on that, can you?

Loved this post. How lucky you are! Pictures are wonderful and like a breath of Spring to me as where I live we had snow yesterday and sleet and cold. Horses are the most beautiful of animals. And I love flowers and the pics of them are like paintings.
