Weekend 101 – Hiking 919 moh

Knowing our strength is not impossible. ~Six word Saturday

Yesterday was a fantastic day, we achieved something great.  It was last sunny day before a wet week so we decided to go on hiking. It was a day tour and we hiked up to 919 m above sea level while covering 17.5 km distance in total.

At home we are working on our “terrace”. Terrace decking is finished and painting is going on but we didn’t want to miss the hiking opportunity.  We didn’t have a lot of rain in last couple of days so the mountain trail was perfect for hiking. The route was well marked (which means one has to keep eye on wooden stumps, trees,  and even the stones in the forest). There were some wet places but managed them in good way. Just that our shoes need good washing 😂😂😂

And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling. ~Shanti

The greatest wisdom is in simplicity.                                                                                    Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness.                                                It’s not complex or elaborate.                                                                                                      The real knowledge is free.                                                                                                         It’s encoded in your DNA.                                                                                                                All you need is within you.                                                                                                          Great teachers have said that from the beginning.                                                           Find your heart, and you will find your way.                                                                            ~Carlos Barrios

HEARTWORK

Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
But yours,
is your ultimate
ART.
~ Suzy Kassem

Being a Saturday we decided to stay home until afternoon and the result is not bad at all.

Banana Bread

Food cannot take care of spiritual, psychological and emotional problems, but the feeling of being loved and cared for, the actual comfort of the beauty and flavour of food, the increase of blood sugar and physical well-being, help one to go on during the next hours better equipped to meet the problems. ~                                               Edith Schaeffer (The Hidden Art of Homemaking)

Hope

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope,
Even in the sunset of your life.

There is a silent deference for one another, a distance that is kept, and lines that aren’t crossed, but in their sharing, they each try to pay tribute to the bond in their own way. As often as possible, they open up a little and give what they can.          Dan Groat

Friendships – and indeed most relationships – are measured in the closeness of hearts, minds and soul ties… not in the distance of physical miles or even the passing of time. ~ Rasheed Ogunlaru
