News from the Ranch ~ August 2009
Hi! If you are joining my newsletter for the first time, I'm so glad you're here! Every so often I send out an e-newsletter that I call "Mumblings and Musings" about my life here at Summerhill Ranch. (It also has announcements about my coming events.) I hope that you enjoy it.
smoke from the fires
Right now at Summerhill Ranch it's HOT!!! We are experiencing all the joy that goes with summertime-picnics, berry picking, and outdoor concerts under the stars- but this is also the time of year when we have to be so very careful about fires.
Last night I woke up coughing at 2am. There was smoke in the bedroom. I panicked and raced around the house to make sure that our home wasn't on fire. (It wasn't.) When I walked outside, the smoke was even thicker. I threw some clothes on and drove to a high vantage point to see if I could see a fire in the vicinity. But there was no red glow against the darkness of the night that would indicate an imminent fire, so I realized that the smoke was from the forest fires that had been blazing to the north and south of us and the smoke must have settled in our valley.
I hadn't wanted to awaken David unless there was danger, so he was still sleeping as I slipped back into bed, but almost as soon as I fell asleep, the smoke woke him up and he leaped out of bed hollering, "Fire!" (He was still half-asleep so it took me awhile to convince him that the house wasn't on fire.)
This morning we are sending prayers to all the displaced critters and to those that have to evacuate their homes.
The good news here at the ranch is that our grapes are ripening and hanging heavy and luscious on the vine (see photo). David, my husband, thinks that our wine this year will be excellent.
Also, our budding rooster, Bogart, got his voice and he's strutting around like he's "all that!" He starts crowing at dawn, but each time he crows he looks around in surprise. It's almost like he can't figure out where that cool noise came from. When it finally dawns on him that he made that awesome sound, he fluffs himself up and marches around in pride. (I've included his photo!)
I'm writing to you because I'm over-the-moon excited about the 28-Week Ultimate Inner and Outer Clutter Clearing and Chakra Clearing Program that starts September 1st. If you've been feeling that it's time to clear out the old to step into a new and vibrant new cycle in life, I guarantee that this will transform your life. (More about this later in this newsletter!!!)
Also, there are still spaces available in the Weekend of Miracles coming up soon in Monterey. This will be an intimate seminar that will knock your socks off (in the best way) and there are still a couple of space left in the Soul Coaching Certification course this September. (See information below.)
Below is a listing of some of my courses coming up. I hope to see you at one of these events.
All my love..always and forever!!
