ahhhh the sun has been shining here for three days now, the nights have been clear and chilly but the days have been glorious.
so glorious i have spent most of the daylight hours sitting in my nook looking out over my wild garden.
Beltane dawned grey and damp but i wandered the garden among birdsong and feeling blessed to be there
my little maypole~a hazel branch with ribbons set in the west of my sacred garden area. i have decided to keep it there and change the ribbons at each festival~but also thought of adding permanent adornment, a hag stone, feathers etc.
this me dears is a concoction of spinach, carrot, apple and ginger. swampy and i are having similar concoctions every day for our lunch in an effort to shed some weight. we have also started swimming twice weekly again after a long break. i just need to now get into daily yoga practice.
the case is my ukulele...a concert size which is one up from the tiny soprano
i couldn't resist a couple of pictures of mismi and inca~we found some packing beans so for a few days mismi enjoyed leaping around in them until i caught him eating the end of one and i confiscated the beans and replaced them with play balls (which really are not to exciting!)

i have had a hard few weeks as i am going through a big fibro flare up. i have also been diagnosed with sciatica. its been going on for a long time...years in fact. i would get funny twinges that would stop me in my tracks then go. i ignored them as months and months would pass between the 'twinges'.
this last year i have been getting more and i just passed it off as another fibro related pain~now i am at the point where it is weekly and it lasts for longer. as i was going to see my gp anyway i asked about it. sciatica, another ailment to add to the list.
