Thank You

Thank you to all my blogging friends for your kind and supportive comments on my last post.  They really helped to lift me up and put life into perspective again.  When I am feeling down I tend to retreat into myself and from experience, that isn't a good thing to do.  As I had neglected my volunteering duties at the vineyard for a few weeks, I decided that today was the day to reconnect with the land and the like-minded souls who tend the vines.  I spent a useful 3 hours tying the vines to stakes, pruning and generally maintaining each vine.  It felt good.  It felt good to have purpose again.

So glad you're feeling a lot more positive Simone! :)
I've spent the afternoon gardening and it definitely makes you feel good being outside in the fresh air!

Keeping busy can help. Your vineyard looks well tended.

Welcome back Simone, I'm so glad you've had a good day today. Keep posting!

I too have been outside this afternoon. It's such a great tonic, even though (down here in the south west) it was drizzling most of the time.

There is nothing like getting out into nature for a renewal of spirit.
Take heart!

What did the grapes say when they got stomped on?
Nothing, they just let out a little wine (whine). Get it? (You have to say this out loud really!)
Glad you are outside, a good thing to renew the spirit. xx
