Claire + Tarkina here to celebrate Summer opening her petals of warmth and beauty, with blessings pouring to you all for a fulfilling, empowering summer of 2023!
We made it.
Thanks to you we will be at sunrise at Stonehenge; all thanks to this beautiful experiment in wonder of Trusted Housesitters.
Thank you to all who have guided me, all of you!;
I am loving this adventure,
this gift of an opportunity to love, cuddle, clear, clean, shop, walk, sing, play, rest, pack, unpack, to refine my packing skills regularly, and to heal.
It is so fun being a new Trusted Housesitter with 3 experiences now to learn from and cherish.
We are celebrating Summer and all the truly miraculous ways being a
new Trusted Housesitter is enriching our lives:
I’d love to see your list!
My only-dog has friends, new friends, acquaintances on walks, new woods, and new smells all the time!
I was freaking out inside, when on Day One of our 3rd TH Sit, I was told the car, being so generously loaned to me, was manual. Oh, my goodness, I thought: ‘I JUST grew my confidence in driving on a new side of the road and a new side of the car,’ as we just moved in May 2023 from the USA to UK. Let the transition expand.
By Day 7, I am driving freely, safely, slowly, smoothly, confidently and joyfully
in every gear. Singing, “I like to go slow like escargot,” and “Pinch spot, pinch spot, tiny toy cars all meeting at the pinch spot…” Apologies to all who find my going the speed limit taxing. Ha ha.
We get to be part of meaningful things, like Sunrise at Stonehenge: 21 June 2023
From National Geographic; excerpt:
“…Every year, upwards of 10,000 revellers descend on Stonehenge for what is the closest thing to a summer solstice festival on British shores. It’s a diverse event: berobed druids observe formal ceremonies amid the stones, while all around them a more secular affair unfolds, with food trucks, boombox music, glowsticks and dancing. The main event is, of course, sunrise, when the first rays of the dawn crest the mighty Heel Stone and illuminate the centre of the stone circle. For many visitors, the most magical part of the experience is the opportunity to touch the stones, which is only allowed for this one day of the year. It’s important to be respectful, though, and remember that the stones hold religious significance for many people…”
Wishing you all very well and happy,
Claire + Lady Tarkina Snowfire, my beloved companion, partner in fun and Assistance Dog, always by my side, and resting on my foot. Oh no, it is Esther, the red fox lab I am caring for in a TH Sit. Esther has taken Tarkina’s place for this moment!
Aww, Lil T is learning to share!
