Ten Ten - Transmission completed, standing by

Posted by on in carban

goodbye carrotsgoodbye carrotsIts been a long journey and since sowing my carrot seed we have traveled through its life's ups and down... I am afraid like must journeys its days were numbered and the cycle is now complete that's why I also see the number 10 as a celebration a reward at the end of the journey mission completed.. its an ending but where there is an ending there is new beginning and each journey we go on we learn from the ups and downs... which of course makes us wiser and stronger for what lays ahead. As for my carrot I am pleased to see it stand proud and its not weeping (leeking) a tear of sorry but a tear of joy... as the onions would say thats shallot. I had to lets his friends go and though selling your carrot is not what you always want at least you know others will get great pleasure and nourishment from it.. and maybe each one will come back with its own blog...

Those of you who know me will understand its not the end of our carrots journey and it will be with us on our next 10-10 walk on 29th September leaving from Browfort at 10.10am. I may pass my carrot on or maybe I will plant it... time will tell. I hope you have enjoyed my carrot journey and now to finish my next project. the prediction pack of 52 cards with my own pics and words of wisdom from the wisitmaster who started his journey 27 years ago thanks to Mr Banks... a long time but just as satisfying the time but does explain why my carrot is a bit tough and withered now *smile*

10-10 journey completed.. standing by

The end is Nine

Posted by on in carban

carrot timecarrot timeIts been some journey for my carrot and time has slipped by so quick since sowing the seed but like all good things its time to look towards the end of the journey. My carrot has now been pulled and is now led out with some of his friends who also been on this growing journey. It does raise the question why is my carrot not as big as others? I am sure we all shared the same conditions.. maybe it will leave a sweet taste in the mouth but it goes to show that even though you try to treat your seeds the same some will be longer, fatter and different shades of colour. Each with a story to tell and of course pleased to have made it and as a mature carrot can now hold its head up high and look to its root and the legacy its has left.

A nine can be confusing so much going on... some worry.. over doing it... things to sort but its something you do not have to say 3 times as the only emergency is what to do to celebrate at the next step which is 10 *smile*

But what now for my carrot?  Numerous options .. maybe go for a gold medal in the vegetable Olympic games.. chuck the carrot is one of the favourite events..... maybe the carrot will be allowed to go to seed but there is a lot of stiff competition or maybe end up a stew..... a salad.. there is of course the option to move into Wisit and take part in a whodunit mystery. Carrots do make good detectives due to the fact of their good eye sight.... so till the next and the  last time take care of your carrot enjoy it.. wash it... admire it.. play with it.... as 10 looms its soon to be crunch time and a vegetable quiz called know your onions...   oh we will need to celebrate so how about some carrot wine? how do you make carrot wine... no not by stepping on it but like this > http://www.wine-making-guides.com/carrot_wine.html

Sending in a via e-mail

Greetings

I have set up a blog where my friends can easily send in a blog by e-mail, attached a photo or two and of couse can add links & e-mails. This is a first one which is a bit of a test but will be good for me to at least be able to send ina blog when I am inspired as this of course can be sent in via a smartphone. Came up  with the idea while in the Bear Hotel Devizes and took a pic of a lovely lady who's *smiled* inspired me to set up this blog as did my friends Hels who had problems sending in from Egypt. But she does inspire me....... to do what I am not sure..... *smile*

Hope you enjoy and if you want to try send me an e-mails and will send instructions *smile*
