Story Time, Greetings and Thanks

It’s been another quiet, stay-at-home, curl-up-with-a-good-book sort of a day today too as  Storm Brian blows a hoolie outside. Today, however, we have had the best treat, two hours of having a story read to us! Not just any old story either but the first of Philip Pullman’s brilliant new trilogy, The Book of Dust,  read by Simon Russell Beale on BBC Radio 4 this afternoon – two and a half hours of entrancement.

I promised you more of the Onondaga Nation’s Greetings and Thanks to the Natural World. Here are the next two panels.

and from the four directions…..

and now the sun

Tomorrow, the Moon….

Just found this photo which demonstrates the hoolie very well! Thanks to Adam Sprague for this amazing photograph.

More Onondaga Thanks, A Gift and Imminent Arrival


Lovely friends left us a beautiful bunch of Sweet Peas in the porch and they filled the space with that very special scent that they have. Thank you D&R.

The first contingent of family should be here within the hour. They were expected at 6pm but first the plane from Barcelona was delayed and since then traffic has been a problem. Not long to wait now………

Pressed Flowers and Thanks

I am making an Early Days memory board for our Golden Wedding celebrations next week.  Among my treasures are some flowers that I collected and pressed while on our Honeymoon in St Ives. They have kept their colour remarkably well for 50 years!

Fuchsia and Rose of Sharon

I promised you more of the Onondaga Nation Thanksgiving words.
