Weekend Coffee Share; Hope and Dreams

Weekend Coffee share is a time for us to take a break out of our busy lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new). Please grab a cup of coffee or tea and share with us!

As I wrapped my scarf around my neck with my Fitbit on and my phone in my pocket I headed out the door this morning for my first walk in a week. It has been raining so much this week that it was difficult to get in my walking. I did some morning stretches and then did some stride walking stretches to help my self loosen up as I headed up the hill listening to the peacocks scream, or cry! Their piercing screams reverberate through the silent morning as the sun tries to break through the soft clouds.

As I walk down the hill I see the huge water puddle that the storm drain just can’t handle. We live in a hilly area so this valley between the hills always floods and floods the small park that is closed. I took some photos of the flooded area and am enamored with water and its amazing mirror qualities! I forgot to offer you coffee, but I am not home yet from my walk so am hoping you can wait for my return?

This is the flooded street! The storm drain is near that fence post along the trail.
My beautiful mirrored photo! This park always floods, the lighting is perfect this morning!

As I walk by this park after I took some photos I could here so many birds singing. And then I heard the morning doves cooing as they softly do but definitely loud enough that I could hear their beauty. The crispness in the air was so refreshing as my creaky bones are moving more smoothly as I rise up the next hill and then turn the corner I spy all the soft clouds in the sky. They looked like cotton candy this morning. I could not believe how soft they appear as if someone was trying to paint the morning view and got frustrated and took their fingers and just smeared all the clouds together! Completely different clouds than the big giant white cotton like clouds that we often see.

View of our Norco hills and the soft, cotton candy clouds!
The sun trying to burst through, blueish cotton candy, yes!

On my walk I felt the hope that what we are doing is working. I have read some reports that scientists are doing studies especially concerning the interesting developments in our state, California. There is a belief and hopefully studies will show that there is already some herd immunity that started way back in November of last year. Thousands upon thousands of people from China visit California every month, and they brought with them this virus that has made its way to many people here. I can count at least 5 people that believe has had this virus in Nov and/or Dec of last year. Same symptoms, and even though not tested if I know 5 people and you do the math there may be thousands if not more that have been exposed.

This could explain the nature of how things are panning out in our area. I am seeing some hope and pray that things will return to normal, whatever normal will be in our future. As I walk I am feeling better and pray for those souls lost and pray for all affected. I am home now, can I get you that cup of coffee or tea? I wanted to share a flower, I saw some blooms on my walk. I know we will have tons of blooms with all this rain!!

Happy Easter! Looks like a little bird ready to take off at the top of the flower!

Thank you for visiting my coffee share. I dream for our country to get back to where it was and I dream that all that are unemployed get employment back soon, very soon as I worry about what is happening to this country and to those affected by no work. I pray for hope and happiness, that those suffering with anything and everything, disease, money, survival. I hope we can look forward to a wonderful future, that we can all get together for Love and happy gatherings. Someday…. This will happen again!

Dreaming, Hoping, Staying Strong,

  2. This is a very positive post. You are not upset by the flooding and you are optimistic about California and CV19. I heard on the radio this evening that California is not flat-lining. This is very good news. Perhaps as you mention it is the immunity and also the fact that California took action quickly to combat the virus. Happy Easter and stay safe!

    1. I am an eternal optomist, and try so hard to see the good even when it’s bad. I’ve had my share of anxiety which has turned into resolve. I find myself trying to find that balance and I thank you so much for your kind, wonderful, supportive words. I am thankful for you and for everyone that I know that are staying strong as we are stronger together! Happy Easter to you too! ❀️

    1. Hahaha! I’ll drink to that! To the reflection photo and to life getting back to normal! Please, pretty please!?!? 😭 (And I don’t drink, but am thinking about it 🀣)

      Of course, normal may be wearing masks for many, many months. I’m planning on stocking up on them as now they are being sold all over the place here! My hubby came home from Walmart and said try this mask, and yes, it’s comfortable and better than the ones they gave us at work. And my work will let us wear our own, just have to wash it ourselves…

    2. Just thinking if you haven’t seen my previous post “Upside down is Beautiful” I shared a really CRAZY reflection photo of my horses. My phone flipped it around and I decided to leave it that way. It’s pretty cool. I don’t like promoting myself, it’s just a fun reflection photo which I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart for pointing out the little things in photos we will miss if you don’t look… Like the rippling in the water in my photos. So now I’m seeing so much more!! Thanks B – you opened my eyes (and I got a lucky shot with my camera!!) 🀠 (I’d add a link but I don’t know how using my phone. Lol)
