Oak

I started SparkPeople three years ago (according to recent e-mail messages), and was doing well until I met with some Life Challenges. I am a 62 year old Missouri nurse, and a Unitarian-Universalist Witch. Life is returning to a normal level of stress, so here I am again. As a Witch, I believe that I can do anything that I Will. I am wanting to reaccess this part of my self, for my spiritual well-being as well as for my physical health.

Lol! I agree Oak! These ideas that anyone who picks up a gun #1 knows what they're doing with it and #2 has a normal or above average IQ are myths. So far, I haven't had any problems with hunters near our property, but better to be safe than sorry!
I'm with you about just staying out of the woods for a couple of weeks.
Right now, I believe we're between seasons. (gun and crossbow) I haven't heard any gunshots around our area this year even though we're backed up to BLM land. I went with Jen today for a short walk to the pond wearing a light colored T-shirt, and when I got home there was a brand new orange hunting vest laying on my chair! I'll be seen from outer space wearing this!

OAK, what did you use to get rid of the odour, I think it is drifting this way once again.
My hypersensitivities make me taste smell as well as just smell them I chew a lot of gum these days. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just dropping by to say hello!
Time seems to fly by. A new month and a new season are here once again. Offering new challenges and opportunities. It is always exciting to see how and what we make of them.

I found something I would like to share: emoticon


"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."
