cypressfoss happy Friday evening from me and the autumnal Happy Plot xx 4d
  •   cypressfoss @rosemadder1 Oh Minty is apparently just a regular Italian Greyhound - dominant. He was even de-sexed early to try to control his urges! Rotten little stinker. I'm always happy to hear that mine isn't the only life full of animal dramas ️.... and don't worry, 'exciting' around here is Wednesday when the garbage truck comes.... Will he be here at the crack of dawn or will he not come 'til lunchtime?? Oh the suspense!!! (p.s. seems like yesterday that these flowers were those tiny seedlings that Girl-puss tried to squash by sitting-on ️. I'm a truly lazy gardener but growing gorgeous flowers from seeds is such a pleasure; it's like a little miracle ). So grateful that the sky is clear & the sun is out! Fingers crossed for a proper autumn day. xxxx 4d

cypressfoss for a while, I thought this espresso was going to be the highlight of my day. But then I swept-up no less than TwEnty-ThrEE millipedes from the bathroom floor (all having crawled in overnight; I'm not keeping them as pets or anything). I honestly don't see how this Wednesday can get any more AweSome. 2w
  •   frankieandray It must be the end of the world....crack out your French and bugger the valerian! 2w

  •   k.j.martin How could you be anything but? 2w
  •   jackanoryjones Great photo 2w
  •   tuppenny_farm Always beautiful 2w
  •   cypressfoss Ah Kerry, we were trying to choose which prints to exclude from Daryl's exhibition and it was really, reeeelly hard @k.j.martin 2w
  •   k.j.martin What a good problem to have. At this stage of my learning I'm lucky to get a few that I can include! @cypressfoss 2w
  •   thisbloominglife @k.j.martin Kerry, from years of experience with that school, they will knock you down to see who will rise. And you my friend will rise and I will visit your graduating show! 2w
  •   cypressfoss How much do we love @thisbloominglife Kerry? @k.j.martin Beautiful woman. Don't make the mistake of expecting too much from yourself Kerry. Don't let the education kill your spirit!!! You have everything you need within you already; try to think of the student experience as you getting what you want out of TheM, not vice-versa. But at the same time do what you're told (you don't want any of those academic-arty-egomaniacs offside...). As I see it your only 'problem' is that you're not, ahem, 'up yourself' enough 😬😬 2w
  •   k.j.martin Oh we love her loads! Don't worry possums, I'm resilient and obedient and not too far up myself. Far too tired for that! Thank you for caring. You're both amazing xx @cypressfoss @thisbloominglife 2w

  •   cypressfoss so far I've had three different recipes for roast lamb with quince presented to me, but alas no sign of coffee @alexnihill 2w
  •   alexnihill I would refuse to acknowledge the chef until I could at least smell to coffee coming from the kitchen @cypressfoss 2w
  •   cypressfoss you are right @alexnihill. I may be suffering from a lack of oxygen to the brain :) 2w

cypressfoss I'm late for #book_chat but it's so hard to say something adequate about this book, which I keep by my bedside always. I've quoted from it and talked about it before, because it's something of a lifeline for me. It's where I go for comfort and reassurance that no matter what our circumstances, we do have the capacity for inner peace. It is a book filled with calm. Its author is Matthieu Ricard (Google him if you need to), who writes with such ease, wisdom, simplicity, and beauty, that anybody could read this precious guide for living. His words shine a light on the futility of living our lives bent at the alter of our own egos, and offer us an ideal whereby the *I* is replaced by compassion, humility, kindness, acceptance, love, and ultimately a sublime inner peace and serenity. We may not be able to retreat to a Buddhist monastery, but we can find enlightenment between the pages of this book, and open our eyes to the intrinsic value of Life. Not of recognition nor status, influence, admiration, material wealth, nor ongoing praise, but simply of Life. For 'every day, every hour, every second, is like an arrow flying toward its target'. Don't waste time complaining nor searching for the validation of others; be humble and true to yourself, be compassionate; live in a state of gratitude. To be mindful of these ideals is a daily challenge for me, one that this book never lets me forget. 3w
