There are days I wish we lived closer to ‘town’ – but mostly, I’m so grateful for our privacy, land and peaceful hearts.
I see beauty in everything. I look for good everywhere. Even the most simple of things stun me and fill my heart with appreciation.
Without further ado, (okay, a little more ‘ado’ because this meme cracks me up whenever I see it).
I present to you the scenes and views that captured my eyes and heart today.
The monarch I fished out a pool of water drying off for it’s flight.
The shadows from this aloe reminded me of Wilson’s hair from Castaway.
Because we all need some backbone no?
Butters making sure her shadow doesn’t escape. She’s no Pei-Pan. Keep a foot on it!
Our vegetable garden (which consists only of onions currently) with the bamboo fencing splaying it’s shadows across the dirt.
Aforementioned bamboo with our namesake sign
Listening to the real homesteader chopping wood
Only caged bird on the property – cage door is open though. Even faux birds deserve a chance to be free
Old outdoor sink and plenty of wood
Our gorgeous Palo Verdes and Mesquite trees
The newly finished culvert and rock work
The sun outshining my inner culvert shot
More rock work and view to other side of culvert
Wild desert ‘creek’
Shadow play – and future site of a bridge
The wood eater
Bottom line is that there is not a direction I can turn without feeling awe and gratitude.
