Seeing..the wind shake the plants crazily outside my window. It's storm-wind, but the sky is clear..another taste of autumn today.
Smelling..rose and sage incense - the sensory detoxification - burning on the altar and beside the door.
Tasting..tea and oatmeal. I wish we'd had cottage cheese leftover from the weekend's breakfasts, or more quiche..but we all loved them too much for that to happen.
Listening.. to the wind..it's very enthusiastic..makes me want to curl up with a pot of tea and a couple books and do nothing else all day!
Grateful...for insulation tucked all around the yurt. Seth's been making sure we'll have a warmer, cozier winter than ever this year, and is improving the whole look of the yurt by making the walls tighter and smooth, like they're supposed to be!
Reading.. Gregory of Nyssa, and an old book on fairies across the world (mainly English), but there's representation from many other places and it's fascinating!
Loving..my retreat.. I'm feeling so good about it! And so determined to stick it though and do it right, without skimping or bending the focus..and I'm planning another one for late winter!Hoping.. I'll be able to take my sweater off sometime today..and that we can really kick up our winter-preparations..see as winter might be closer than it ought to be.
