Hi El
well looks like we sold the house.
not sure exactly now how I feel about that,
happy and sad at the same time. we've been at this place for a lil over 23 yrs... so many memories..
ive always had a hard time with change. now hubby could care less, keeps telling me its just a thing and that our life and family are the heart of the home. I know hes right.
so I guess its, out with the old - in with the new..
so why do I feel like crying..
:/
Annwyl PFfff...:)
I am glad for ya....ao many congrats on it all working out as planned.
The memories are not going anywhere you know....you will take them
with you and in time look back on them in clarity...both good and bad...
they never leave you or you leave them.
So don't be worrying about that....shoulders back and look ahead....
because there's good times waiting for you and more memories to
build.....

It's an exciting time and it brings out all the emotions....
I've been there lots of times and have an accuminlation of memories
from all over the show...even from your beautiful county!...:)

You'll be fine.....

tomatoes are all covered in flowers

Good morning El. I need to send you the strangest photo my wife got on facebook. It is a picture of the front of a house. You look at it and say so what. Then you see the shadows from a tree show a perfect face that look like a painting. You go OMG! I had a fantastic course yesterday. In order to maintain my real estate license I have to take so many hours of class. It was the best course I have ever taken. It was about how to separate yourself from other agents and get listings. Part of it dealt with videos. The guy teaching the course was floored when I told him I have about 90 videos up and I answer email with a video. Everyone thinks it is a great idea but they are too camera shy to ever actually do it. It really gives me an edge when I tell people to search my name on you tube and see who I will market your home,

Very natural to feel like that,
and time will ease the situation,
it's true you bring your memories with you..
and in time you will place them elsewhere.

I'm a bit like you, so I can understand,
I'm very sensitive to change, even when a neighbor (I might not
have known very well)...dies,
I get emotional at simple things like...no longer meeting her on the road
on a sunny ..or windy day and exchanging pleasantries...

BUT,

You have a lot to look forward too ..
as there is much joy ahead tofocus on.

Very best of luck in your new direction PFff.
You seem a fine.. and a well suited couple.

My wife tried to send it to me but it didn't work. I will have her try again. It is funny how our mind is wired to see faces. There is a face on Mars I believe. All the time you hear of people seeing the face of Jesus in a water stain or some such. I find it funny that no one knows what he looked like but they are so sure they see his face :) I was hunting one day and saw the strangest thing that could have been taken for a miracle. It was a very cloudy day with no sun and as I looked in the forest I saw this very very bright circle of light on the ground like it was shining down from heaven. I had to investigate what it could be . We had had a freeze on a windless night and a persimmon tree had dropped it's very bright yellow leaves in a perfect circle :) Also one time I saw a huge cedar tree that had smoke coming from it like it was on fire. It was releasing so much pollen it looked like a heavy smoke :)

RORY McLLROY apparently has just called off his engagement,
notwithstanding wedding invitations had gone out-

Seemingly TWITTER is alive with comment,
(it would-wouldn't it)!!!

but I think,
Is it not better and more responsible to do it

BEFORE HAND..

rather than announcing a separation soon after...
complicating everything.

Being in the public eye can be a pain at times like this;)

Good Morning Grace..

it was on Sky News this morning, everyone is in agreement, rather now
than later.

Meanwhile the search continues for the 4 British yachtsmen, the latest news
is that debris has been found, possibly of the yacht....hopes are that they
are in a lifeboat. All very experienced sailors.

Good Morning Denny.....

no worries, if it works then great, if not, not meant to see it. But what fantastic
images you paint of the' illusions'..proving everything has an explanation.
Now P is the biggest cynic ever....yet one evening walking the dog when I
lived on Anglesey, we distinctly saw what had to be a ' flying saucer'.....I know...
hard to believe...but there was no other explanation.

Another time we were walking on the beach, with our cats as it so happens,
evening, nobody around, and we lived yards from the beach. This area
was a wartime training ground for American, Australian, Canadian
and New Zealand airmen.
Suddenly the peace was shattered by the sounds of flying aircraft, P
identified the sound as that of Spitfires, and not just one but many.
The sky was clear that night.
Judging them to be overhead we looked into the sky...only to see there
was nothing whatsoever there yet we could hear them distinctly, the noise
was deafening like they were flying low, but there was nothing there,
we looked at each other in disbelief but we knew what the explanation was.....

Not something we will ever forget.

Sadly, there were many aircraft crashes into the mountains here, pilots caught
unawares, having trained on flat ground back home.

Lovely post, perfectly described..

Too true, amazing what we can see around us,
what often fascinates me too is

after a rain shower, how miniature drops hand on certain leaves,
and shimmer .. Lovely enough to make one stop and admire.

Something I saw which comes to mind was .. once when
driving along a country road on a kind of day of heavy showers
and sunny spells, a rainbow appeared and it's end came right
down on to the grassy roadside edge in front of me,

Was kind of sorry after I didn't stop and check for any
pot of gold :) but it was an amazing sight I won't easily forget.

Very sobering thought indeed El,
and can understand why you would never forget.

Yes, I sincerely hope the yachtsmen will somehow be safe,
But the odds don't look too good, unfortunately.

I will have a long day tomorrow
At the EUROPEAN ELECTIONS..

It will be a bedlam weekend here ... as ONE DIRECTION are
paying here 3 nights.. and the security is tight..
roads closed and other inconveniences, but of course
all the kids are delighted:)

Good greetings to all the regulars.

You'll be quite busy tomorrow then Grace.....all in a good cause.
Would you believe in certain parts of England they shall be placing
Police on guard in front of the Polling Stations to prevent intimidation....
Some people telling prospective voters who to vote for....
In England 2014!!!!!

But on to nicer things, that would have been a beautiful sight to see the
Rainbow's End.....how fortunate you were that day.

We attempted to climb Snowdon (lol) half way up which actually was as
far as we got, I glanced behind and the light was magnificent in relief...
there were a little group of pure white sheep grazing on the green green grass
and overhead there was the most beautiful rainbow.

You reminded me of that memory.

This was some time ago when P could walk of course.

Anyway, all the best tomorrow and hope the concert goes down well for the kids.
