Missing The Raindrops


 The field isn’t mine anymore, but I’m still glad to see that the  ponies returned yesterday .
There was a look of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse about them as they are all wearing their fly masks, not that they seem unduly bothered by them .
I drove to Llandudno and bought a gift for my sister’s birthday at Mostyn Gallery 
I’m going around to see her for supper later.

I enjoyed the folk concert last night and my companion. jason is an interesting character and always good company to be around. 
He has an interesting philosophy in life which predominantly centres around the abject refusal to get stressed by anything 
“ What’s the point ? “ he says simply 
And strange as it may seem he seems to live successfully by this maxim.
It’s an enviable quality

  1. My son is like that. He rarely lets things get to him. It is sure a quality I admire.

  4. I've finally learned to stop worrying about things I have no control over. But I still fret. Human nature, I guess. Can the horses see out of their fly masks? Hope so. Enjoy your dinner with your sister. Hugs, Elaine

    1. I’m finding being mindful helps at times of worry
      It’s a diversion

  5. As I've got older, I realise time spent worrying about things is time and energy wasted. Mind you, I have spent many a sleepless night NOT worrying about things, lol! xx

  6. I honestly think that between nature and nurture we are inclined either to be a worrier or not. My mother said I was always a worrier which I responded to (in my mind) with, "Well, I had a lot to worry about when I was a kid." And I still worry. At the age of 67 I doubt I'm apt to change. I sure wish I could.

  9. Can I change it, if the answer is no, don't worry
    Will it eat me, if the answer is no, don't worry
    Is it my problem, if the answer is no, don't worry
    Be Happy.

  10. Many many moons ago when I was married, my husband used to say, "You are such a worrier, why do you worry so much? My answer was "Well, SOMEONE in this family has to!

  14. Now I've go something new to worry about - those poor ponies' 'masks', looking more like blindfolds. Still, as you can be relied on to know what you're talking about, I'm reassured by your comment that they don't appear too bothered, and I'm going to believe you. ;-)

  15. I sometimes think if I didn't have any worries' I'd be dead.
    I tend to worry most about things I absolutely have no control over. As I suspect most of us do.
