we watch
in awe and gratitude
nature’s gifts
unfurl above the clouds
from our beloved mountain

This is our last post before we take a short break from blogging to celebrate Christmas with our loved ones. We will continue to share adoption appeals from shelters via twitter throughout the festive season and hope that all those souls currently in shelters will find the loving homes they deserve.

We want to say a huge thank you for all the love and support from the wordpress team, our followers and our fellow bloggers and we wish you a blessed Holiday Season and a very happy New Year.

With love from us all,
Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Sharing Our Path

I have been rehomed with human companions who are passionate about spending time outdoors.  A whole new world opened up for me which had always been hidden within my own nature.


Pearl and I now share our life and our paths. We love to stride side by side.


We follow our heart and our instinct to explore where no one has gone before.


Away from the well trodden paths are so many treasures to be discovered.


The quickest way to the top is often the steepest.


You can fly over stepping stones when you are in full flow.


You can pause and look back in gratitude to send love to all those who have helped you and see how far you have come.


When I listen to the water in the creek and the wind I can hear them singing that our true path is always guided from within.

the sound of the creek
music made with love
by heavenly light

I am sending you all so much love,
