I rearranged my bedroom furniture and now Oliver keeps falling off of the bed in the middle of the night.

I’ve been going through some photos from last year for a project and it’s making me feel a little bit nostalgic for my Great Florida Road Trip of 2013…
I’ve been to York three times. Each time just for a few hours and those hours were spent wandering The Shambles, window shopping and eating lunch. Pretty predictable. And not very exciting (though most definitely enjoyable). On my last visit, in May, I was travelling with my mother who has trouble walking which led us to do A LOT of window shopping and to take a quick break at the Yorkshire Museum Gardens. My mom waited on a bench outside of the gate and I wandered into and around the gardens. What a magical place! Ruins, gardens, paths…and no crowds! I wish that I had discovered this garden on my first visit. But now I know about and now I can visit it again, one day…

My new favorite at home evening activity…rabbit watching. There’s a little rabbit that I call Clover that I’ve been seeing off and on for several weeks now in my front yard, in my back yard, sometimes running off into my neighbor’s mini sunflower field, sometimes darting under one of my azalea bushes. Most often he is munching on clovers (hence his name, big smile). And actually as it turns out there are two rabbits. Last night I spotted them together playing in the yard, hopping about and chasing each other a bit. After playtime Clover munched contentedly on his clover snacks and Clover’s friend stood up on his hind feet to nibble on mimosa blossoms. It’s pretty wonderful, to me anyway, that I can live in a city and have these perfect nature-y moments. And truth be told there are quite a few rabbits hopping around in my neighborhood but these two are special because these two have my yard part of their home.Which makes me very happy. Indeed.
I’m not sure how I had never seen the movie A Very Long Engagement before but I hadn’t and now I have. The same quirky, lovely, melancholy style as Amelie but darker. It’s wonderful! And wonderful too that it is in French, which I sadly can not speak, and has subtitles because that forced my wandering, multi-tasking mind to slow down, pay attention and enjoy what was on the screen in front me. This movie is definitely being added to my favorite films list.
somewhere over Newfoundland…I’m yearning for another adventure
alleyways and secret passages (more or less) abound in London…just off of busy Fleet Street if you look with an open mind you will find a little bit of magic…

I took a little walk one day in Hawkshead, through the woods and the countryside and around a lake and down some roads. A little walk that ended up being several hours long and almost 6 miles in distance. But there is nothing like a walk in the English countryside. Especially in spring during lambing season and with the bluebells in bloom and hardly another human around. Pure bliss.
