Mellow fruitfulness and seasonal doings

I really dislike the word 'chore', as it sounds as if it's a thing you don't enjoy doing, so I  tend to use the word doing/s instead :) There are very few doings I don't actually enjoy......
One of today's is sorting and washing the apples for a couple of gallons of cottage cider

Outside, I have planted out wallflowers and spring cabbages. There are more apples to be gathered in and the patch right outside the back door tidied and the plants sorted and some bought under cover for the winter. I need to check the sloe tree too later on, strawberries to plant out and harvest the hops.
Nature continues to surprise and delight - this  nicotiana is in full flower in a quiet corner

Later, I need to go out and buy some glass vases for my hyacinth bulbs and get them going for the winter, sort out the garlic ready for planting next week and get some gin to make some more damson gin. I will invest in some leek plants too, as I missed sowing them this year due to illness.
Always something to be done, I love it :)

A Goddess

A Goddess...

A goddess is a woman who emerges from deep within herself.

She is a woman who has honestly explored her darkness and learned to celebrate her light....

She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the magnificent possibilities within her.

She is a woman who knows of the magic and mysterious places inside her, the sacred places that can nurture her soul and make her whole.

She is a woman who radiates light. She is magnetic.

She walks into a room and male and female alike feel her presence.

She has power and softness at the same time.

She has powerful sexual energy that's not dependent on physical looks.

She has a body that she adores and it shows by the way she comfortable lives and moves in it.

She cherishes beauty, light, and love.

She is a mother to all children.

She flows with life in effortless grace.

She can heal with a look or a touch of the hand.

She is fiercely sensual and fearlessly erotic and engages in sex as her way to share with another in touching the Divine.

She is compassion and wisdom.

She is a seeker of Truth and cares deeply about something bigger than herself.

She is a woman who knows that her purpose in life is to reach higher and rule with love.

She is a woman in love with love.

She knows that joy is her destiny and by embracing it and sharing it with others, wounds are healed.

She is a woman who has come to know that her partner is as tender, lost and frightened as she has been at times.

She has come to understand the scars of the boy in him and knows that together, love can be the relief, the healing of their wounds.

She is a woman who can accept herself as she is. She can accept another as they are.

She is able to forgive her mistakes and not feel threatened by another's even when attacked.

She is a woman who can ask for help when she needs it or give help when asked.

She respects boundaries, hers and another's.

She can see God in another's eyes. She can see God in her own. She can see God in every life situation.

She is a woman who takes responsibility for everything she creates in her life.

She is a woman who is totally supportive and giving.

She is a Goddess....

This one should be on the NHS

Hugely inspiring and great fun, even if the washing is left undone for another day :)

At the shore

Spent a goodly part of the day at the shore yesterday, two of my favourite places in England, West Bexington and Lyme Regis
