Music adds so much joy to our lives. So does exercise and good health. And until one’s life is devoid of all of those – we do not really appreciate our senses that let us hear, see, understand and move with joy and no pain.
So today I am giving thanks for all the goodness in my life – the family, friends, good health and prosperity – and ask that you take a few moments to express an attitude of gratitude. We always have something to be grateful for, no matter how dark the moment. And in this blog I send you strength and joy for every moment of your day.
Below is some of the bounty of our little farm – apricots and the jam that I have made from them – just Apricots ( pitted), sugar and vegetarian pectin. Cook slowly and enjoy. My absolute favorite jam.
And of course – apples and honey from our bees – a traditional dish. Happy New Year to those who celebrate it tomorrow! Here I am in my bee suit – but honestly, I leave the bee keeping to my husband – he is a real expert – and we are working hard to preserve as many bee colonies as we can – they are suffering from the Colony Collapse Syndrome that bees worldwide are afflicted with. We lost half our hives this year – and are tending to the remaining ones hoping that they will survive. More on that in another blog….
