mudpies

This pic kind of depicts my feelings lately , the weather has turned cold and the wind is bitter and relentless ,I cannot complain as we in many past years have been bombarded with snow by now and shovelling with all its colourful language would be out in full force! This weather is harsh on a woman's skin , well I know it is on mine , dry irritated and in need of extra love and care ,when you get the time ,if not UGH!!!!!!UGH!!!!! UGH!!!!! Anitbacetial soaps and repeated handwashings only add to the problem.:-(


I was trying to brighten up the place and decided to transplant some Christmas cactus/cacti ,

prune etc and purchase a few new ones ,along with new soil, planters, etc . I set my area up and even bought some hand blown glass watering balls to make it all pretty, anyway as I was working in the new soil I sprinkled a little water into the mix and stirred it with an old spoon , wham I was taken back to my childhood ,making mud pies and straw fries and mushing it all with my hands ,you could smell the earth , a earthy clean distinct smell,and with the sensory of the feeling of it in my hands was a complete memory that I have not thought of for many years ! I paused and soaked up the happiness of my youth and the pleasure something so simple could give me , WOW , wonderful , then I seen my hands and my adult hood came crashing back LOL , the dryness of the weather irritated skin and the mushy soil !OMG I thought I would never get them clean , (bit of a clean phobe about my hands, LOL)but as I washed away the residue of soil water and memories , I noticed that my hands were soft and supple , I didn't even need to add moisturizer , WHO KNEW! I would have been playing in the mud for all these years if I had only known LOL


Hope your all playing in the mud !LOL have a great week ! HUGS!
