♥.Good Morning ♥. Good Afternoon, ♥.or Good Evening


My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth,beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same,we are one.


I have so many places to go for one day trips and today is not one of them. Details later. Business first.

. . . . . .╰☆╮ Ponder of the Day╰☆╮ . . . . . .

I don't think you get to good writing unless you expose yourself and your feelings. Deep songs don't come from the surface; they come from the deep down. The poetry and the songs that you are suppose to write, I believe are in your heart.

Judy Collins

Annie's Song - John Denver

Welcome to Thursday at Walden Pond.

I still do not remember the date two Fridays ago but I will always remember the day. I had chosen today simply because it is the big 5-0 for Loren (Kenneth's little brother). I had planned on doing a start a couple of months late on the 50th anniversary of the first American's - Jim Whittaker - climb and conquest of Mt Everest. Maybe next week. I am in too much of a ponder mood.

I have had a lot to think about the last 13 days.

Life has a habit of taking us on a roller coaster ride full of highs and lows and twists and turns. Even for those who enjoy unexpected thrills, it's frightening to suddenly find themselves heading for a deep plunge. Some people's roller coasters are more sedate than others but we all are on one. We all have fears.

It can happen at any age but especially as we grow older, we are fearful of health concerns for ourselves or that of a loved one. Fearful of not having enough money to make ends meet. Fear of loss. Fear of losing a job, or finding one or beginning one. Whatever our fears are, they are valid, and we do not need to feel ashamed or embarrassed that we are, at times, afraid.

It may be comforting to know that everyone gets scared, and it is perfectly OK. Sometimes just acknowledging our fears is enough to make us feel better. And while it sometimes takes a lot more to ease our mind, we can console ourselves with the knowledge that life can be scary at times. Giving ourselves permission to be scared lets us move through our fears so we can let it go. It also makes it alright to share our fears with others. Sharing our apprehensions with other people can make our fears less overwhelming because we are not letting them grow inside of us as pent up emotions. Sharing our fears also can lighten our burden because we are not carrying our worries all by ourselves.

I gotta say that sharing comes hard to me but it is the only thing that has gotten me through the past few days.

Chocolate Decadence

Top make one cake, you'll need...

Large sauce pan
Wire whisk
10 inch cake pan
Parchment paper

1 pound of butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup coffee (brewed)
1 pound semi-sweet chocolate (chopped up)
8 whole eggs

Preheat the oven to 325F. Line the cake pan with parchment paper and grease.

Place the first three ingredients into the saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the chocolate and stir with the whisk until all the chocolate is melted. Add the eggs and whisk to incorporate. Pour into the greased cake pan and bake for approximately 25-35 minutes. To test cake for doneness, the cake will be very wobbly but if touched it will not stick to your finger.

Let it chill and and then serve with some fresh whipped cream. If you're feeling really exciting, top it off with chocolate sauce and shaved chocolate pieces. mmmmmm.

And of course, enjoy!

Good morning hope that Lyn is still improving, and that everyone else is feeling well. On my way to work but break up today for ten days I intend to see more of my mum who has dementia, and plenty of dog walking have a good day everyone.

@ Robb
Thank you for a wonderful start, and helping us to look inside ourselves.
I am sitting here thinking that you and yours have been on such a long journey, and been through so many things and I at least, have appreciated that you have learnt to share and I am so glad that you have learnt that sharing helps - FB&C are pulling for you ♥

@ dinkyd
I do hope that you have a really good holiday, a well deserved break, I am sure your ankle will appreciate it.
I also hope that you will be able to pop in once in a while and have a chat. Enjoy visiting your mum ♥

Thanks Red
It has been an interesting journey.

Heading to bed. I noticed just now that Bailey had my side all nice and warm.

Found a beautiful poem within a book I didn't get to 1-click yesterday - it seems to fit Robb's theme today

It Took So Long
In days of debris
We sifted for Angels
Now we know:
It's futile to search for solid joy.
Happiness is a vapor, powerful
As wind, but just as shifty.
We do not hold
Keys or answers
But vision,
Memory, hands.
Mine in yours, every
Squeeze says loved
Says I am I am I am

- Drew Myron

While you are waiting perhaps you can try to check out the list and let me know what you think.
Good bike ride and it is "little friday" so all is good here, and of course today we get the sweet spot another bonus ;-)

...and tomorrow I'm going to Copenhagen:)

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 22, 2013 1:39:22 AM PDT
Have a wonderful time in Copenhagen NL.... The Festival, the food, the ambiance..... Lucky girl!

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 22, 2013 1:47:50 AM PDT
Mmmm, I hope your Sweet Spot is memorable today red. I emailed about the option that isn't available for you and the response that came back was that was a matter of your settings. I checked my settings and couldn't see it, but maybe you can check yours.

I'm not feeling very well the last couple of days, but I'll get it together for you. Thanks for your help. ;-)

Hope life is good for you, too - as my uncle says, "may you finally get what you deserve!"

I do hope that your visit to CPN will be everything you are hoping for - enjoy yourself and all that food - I will think of you whilst I am at work and otherwise occupied during the weekend ♥

A Magic Broken
A Magic Broken is a tale of ruthlessness, courage and deceit. The novella tells the story of Captain Nicolas du Mere, an exile fleeing the death of his rebel lord, and Lodi, son of Dunmorin, a brave dwarf dedicated to rescuing his fellow dwarves from slavery. Their dangerous paths meet, but in a manner that is anything but predictable

@ NL
If I should manage it - how are we to recognize each other ? A sign that says FB&C ? A red rose ?
