Tanka: Into the Present

the voice
of the wind and sea
our future, our history

The weather has been getting better and it is lovely to walk without coats on.

Wishing you all a happy Thursday and a blessed rest of the week,

    1. Thank you kindly dear Tracy, she has settled in very well and very quickly. The days are punctuated by her medication and feeding times as they need to be given at the same times each day. She uses her own beds, the sofas and our bed for sleeping and lounging and loves snuggling up for cuddles. Our walks are shorter and go at a slower pace and this opens up many new places we can explore together πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ Hope your hubby is feeling a bit better and much love from our house to yours πŸ’žπŸ’œπŸ’ž xxx
