Windows are open and life is good…

Our windows are open and it’s looking like Spring…finally. The newly planted raspberry bushes which now are only twigs are starting to get little green buds! The pear tree is looking hopeful as well. We’re ready to start planting our garden and my sunflowers will be begin peeking their little heads up through the soil!…

Gypsy Caravans, Goldfish and Art

Sometimes I wake up with bizarre thoughts. Of course, not so bizarre for me but for the general population they could be a little out there. This is one of those mornings. All I have been able to think about is having a gypsy wagon, not driven by a horse, although that would be awesome…

Walks, Magic and Peace

I love walks and nature and animals and meditating and daydreaming and luckily I get all those things at once when I go walking 🙂 No earphones, no cell phones, no iPods…nothing. Just me and Nature. It’s there I find peace and inspiration and motivation and happiness. I love the trees and flowers, I love…

Attics, Secrets and Memories (even it they aren’t your own)

I love memories…making them and reliving them. I love memories even if they aren’t my own, even if they are memories I listen to or make up on my own, like the ones attached to something old or forgotten or long since packed away in a dust ole attic. A little dust I don’t mind…

It’s Almost Here, Do You Feel It?

This is the title for the blog I wrote for Skirt! today. Here’s the link just in case…. Skirt! blog We’re getting a wonderful taste of Spring today…windows open, feet bare, birds singing, kitty napping….just perfect. I’m taking full advantage of it and am tempted to have dinner outside under my favorite tree! Since I’m…

It’s My Birthday!! What a hippie year it has been…

I have declared this International Fun Day in honor of my Birthday!! I began it with mini cupcakes served alongside the scrambled eggs and bagels with cream cheese at breakfast and followed by a morning of shopping with my favorite people, my kids! We had a lot of fun trying not to get picked up…

I love music…

For the past two days I have been practically listening to music nonstop…on Pandora, on vinyl, on the radio. I love all the memories the songs stir from deep down inside. Reviving dreams and hopes and wishes. Music from groups like Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band, Aerosmith, The…

Spring brushed my cheek today…

I know, I know it’s not Spring but today even though it was really chilly there was something, maybe the sunshine or maybe a daydream but I could feel Spring. I could see myself sitting at the table under my favorite tree art journaling or reading or crocheting while the kids played croquet around the…

Good-bye February

At the end of each day my son chronicles what he did, what stood out, what he wants to remember. He keeps it short and simple on his Phineas and Ferb wall calendar. On New Year’s Eve he reads through the whole calendar. I love this idea! He doesn’t plan out the day but records…
