merry meet )o(
beautiful,beautiful day here in dorset~so much so i took Cody out for a second walk when i decided to go to my stream in the valley,despite my m.e trying to convince me otherwise.
walking up the lane was lovely, the hedgerows have been growing like crazy since the recent burst of rain then sunshine and its a mix of rose hips, blackberries,honeysuckle,hazel and wildflowers and at the stream i communed with who i had to while Cody splashed around. the walk back seemed longer than usual because i felt tired but it was so good to get out on a nice day.
well yesterdays seitan workshop was disastrous to say the least~my attempt turned into a slimy blob and swampys into a slightly larger,not so slimy blob. luckily i had some dried chestnuts in the larder so made up a nice hotpot with roast parsnips and potato's. anyway i finally found a company in this country that sells wheat gluten powder and ordered two packs so now i can access the various American blogs and websites for specific recipes and actually produce something edible!
to counter the effect of bad seitan production i listened to jethro tull's 'songs from the wood' rather loudly and i think the combination of our lovely waxing moon and some particular lyrics/music, but i started to feel very strange indeed~a feeling that has followed me through to today...not helped by that song again~if you get moon gazy, listen if you can, to jethro tull's 'velvet green'...
i was watching CNN news today and they were reporting on an american football star who is being prosecuted for dog fighting and all the dreadfulness that goes along with that disgusting activity~i just hope that the judge can see beyond his fame and justice is served...but my belief in the law of the threefold return holds strong.
I gave myself two hours off from packing orders. Time for a walk across the fields. Out into the magic of a frozen morning. I love that sound of frozen lea...
