My trusty catalog., seeds for the Pacific Northwest climate.
OK, maybe I’ll change my nomenclature and start calling them mountain lions. That sounds a little scarier than it is. But it might alleviate the giggles when I use the innocent word cougar. See?
I am seriously looking at the 2017 seed catalog. When I first get it I throw it in the corner, phase one, then at some point I start peeking in, phase two, but now phase three is here. What a great activity! Planning ahead for when the soil temp finally will get above 70 degrees and we will be able to stretch out our hunkered down bodies, minds and spirits. OK, no whining.
Annie and Carol are coming this weekend to play with us. We have a one day trip to Victoria, British Columbia on Saturday to show the film to Canadian Pilgrims on the Camino. Then Sunday we will be doing some more filming. The work for the one hour version of Phil’s Camino has started!
I’ll have to tell you one of my favorite stories of Annie. On March 2nd, 2014 Annie first came to Phil’s Camino the trail. For several days previous to that memoriable date I scurried around cleaning things up. One of the items on my list was to put down five flat rocks to bridge the water flowing through Raven Creek. When Annie first saw them she said, “Oh, how Camino!”. Then I said, Oh be careful, they are a little shakey. And she quickly said, “Oh, how Camino!”. It was at that point that I knew I was on the right track, a blessing from Annie.
So back to our look at the Pilgrim Beatitudes which were carefully handed down to us by the Knights Templar. I have to dig in the archives for September 2014 when I was in my glorious reentry period. Here we go, number four:
BLESSED ARE YOU PILGRIM, BECAUSE YOU HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE AUTHENTIC “CAMINO” BEGINS WHEN IT IS COMPLETED.
That is so delicious! But what the heck does it mean? I have written a thousand blog posts on that topic and still it looms out ahead of me. I guess if I put it in a nutshell today Janurary 26th, 2017 I would say, “You have been trained now go do something with it.” Yes, that is a pretty good look at it from one particular angle. What do you think?
Off I go, walking this AM, fill the bird feeders, check for lion tracks, look at my corn patch, say a rosary. Yea, looks like my Camino to me, obvious Camino loves, Felipe.
