Sounds great Joan. Too smoky to be outside today.

Whole grains toast dunked in coffee! A splendid way to start my day. The first task is to refill the water tank in the greenhouse, gather ripe vegetables, replenish the bird feeders. Flocks of turkeys come to the feeding station daily now. They leave their lovely poop on the dry, sandy soil, giving promise of some fertile ground for planting. Then, I will have to get out the fencing. 

Life is sweet in the forest.

Agreed, Randy. All that sugar just masks the fruit flavour.

Thanks Randall! We have some days of Dutch summer now; not too hot, rainshowers and in between sunshine. It's still very dry - when I walk into the park many trees rattle like in autumn. Older trees look good, but most trees of only two or three years old have died because their roots are not deep enough.

Good weekend to all!

Wow--it's a November looking morning, foggy and dreary looking. Hopefully, it will brighten up.

Breakfast was toast with peanut butter and honey with real strawberries on top. I never buy jam or jelly--too much sugar. Strawberries came frozen from my freezer, picked this past Spring. Coffee, of course!

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

I can knit or sew or do puzzles while concentrating on my breathing. It works quite well.

I'm glad to know you have some ways to relieve stress, it is good for your mind and body. Do take care of yourself.

Thanks Joan, I tried a few times, but at the moment I find it quite impossible to listen for 15 minutes. I have a few ways to relieve stress which I'll tell you about. Not now as I'm making breakfast first.

My goodness, Chris, you and your partner have been under extreme pressure and it is a wonder that you both have not had breakdowns. Your partner being in transition adds to the already stressful home.  

May I offer a little bit of relaxation and stress reduction music?

Let me know if this helps. I just listened and felt better after spending a few hours in the greenhouse. My tomatoes are almost ready to eat.

Good to hear your skin is finally calming down, but we all know too much stress can do all sorts of things. That is a very big load you two are carrying.
