What am I doing on my day off...

 Contemplating the next fun color to
 paint this cool chest...

 Watching Louie guard the flock...

 Watching and playing with new toys...

 Making eyeball magnets for the shop...

 Three new mink doilies for the furniture...
sweet...

 Thinking of the event that confirms
 my beliefs...
I was dreaming of my deceased ex-husband
the other night, when a familiar scent
awoke me from the dream, it was his scent,
a scent I hadn't smelled in years,
a scent of wood, he was a carpenter,
a slight whiff of smoke and the scent
of a man just home from work,
not offensive at all, but a reckoning...
Then as I dragged myself outta bed
and walked to the stairs, I noticed
this silver bracelet laying in the
middle of the floor...
I don't wear jewelry and have no
idea where this piece came from, but,
I do believe in the afterlife and
believe this was a gift from
the other side...maybe an appology,
or just a sign...
whatever it was, it confirms to me that
regardless of how our paths parted,
he'll always be a part of my life...

as I sit on my back porch
 and ponder the lessons
life shares...

...we must only be open to the thought that they can visit occasionally, and they leave their scent to let you know they were there. dreams are most important.
it has happened to me too many times, to not be a believer.

I really don't believe in anything, but at our Tulsa house, we occasionally smell pipe smoke near the front bedroom and one day, on the sink, lay 2 old bobby pins that had to be the first ones ever made. It is strange when things like that happen.

I didn't think anyone else collected Mink Doilies!?! We must certainly be Twins separated at Birth. Loving the Eyeball Magnets BTW.

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

A very sweet post. It's so hard to be separated like this from one you love.

What a lovely post, I'm sure the bracelet was left for you as a gift.

Eyeball magnets in time for Halloween, great stuff.
