thank you all for your birthday wishes to flynt!
his birthday being the day it is makes the anniversary of having to send our beautiful cody over the rainbow bridge easier to bare even after four years.
for those readers who don't know we lost cody on the 10th January 2010, within hours of flynt being born and so we like to feel there is some of cody in flynt.
flynts true name is
Sgurr an Doire Leathain
Sgurr an Doire Leathain is one of the 7 munros on the south glen sheil ridge in western Scotland, over the kylerhea river which separates the isle of skye, where flynt was born, from mainland Scotland.
all his brothers and sisters were named for the other monroes and we were all allowed to chose which name to have and we chose this one because of its assorted translations the one the breeder had was 'peak of the broad oak thicket'
which for me was just perfect~dont you agree?
today is cool and dry here in this ancient forest, the calm before the next period of rain and high winds due to come later today and over night. yesterday we had almost continuous rain that thundered so loudly on our roof it was hard not to think our roof would come in!
unfortunately just because its a lovely dry day it doesn't mean i can get out and tidy some of the garden because the ground is so waterlogged we cannot walk on anything for fear of churning it up.
i am a bit out of sync today as i slept until 1.30 this morning~i never sleep that late, i am usually up between 5-6 every morning. i love the solitude of being up so early and having that 'me' time.
but my body was obviously telling me that i needed the rest~but it does nothing to my feeling of losing a big part of the day, my most productive part of the day being the morning.
i have a project that needs finishing as a gift for a friend
i need to study the cards from my first reading of my shamans oracle again
i need to make up a batch of my starter for my artisan loaf
i want to sit in the garden for a while...but need to move my garden chairs around first
tomorrow i fully intend on getting up early and have a productive day!
how has your day been?
