Mondays and Art

I’m sitting here by open windows in the bay with a view of my growing sunflowers and favorite tree. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, coffee hot and fresh within reach. The sky I see through a canopy of leaves or is it leafs? is Carolina blue with wisps of white clouds. It’s…

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning rain isn’t falling….yet, but it will be. I’m still in bed as I write this blog…it’s only 6:39am I don’t think my coffee pot has even gone off yet. Normally I jump up early but today just seems like one of those slow easy comfortable days where nothing in particular has to get…

Saturday!

Holy cow! It’s been a crazy day! We went to yard sales but Wayne’s truck kept breaking down and he’s been working on it ever since we crippled it home. I made sandwiches for lunch with salads and then picked some tasty veggies from the garden which I washed and put in the fridge. Then…

Run Away…Just For A Day

Sometimes I just want to forget I’m a grown up. I think days like that can be the most fun…if you give into the feeling. Maybe go out driving in a pick up truck…fast down a dirt road with the windows down and the music up singing along to all our favorite songs like For…

Zombie Alert? Magnolia Pearl Inspiration and Cats!

This morning is cool I mean down right chilly! I’m sitting here by my open windows at the bay wearing a Magnolia Pearl inspired outfit! I love it! The tops are sleeveless so I’m chilly. Chilly! In June! Late June! This is odd for NC. We’re usually hot from May until October but it was…

Cosmic Surprises & Hippie Garden Love

Some mornings you wake up and just know it’s going to be a remarkable day. I mean every day is a great big gift but some just feel set apart for some unknown cosmic reason. It’s like the Universe knows a secret and is so keeping it from you like as a parent you hide…

A spontaneous hippie road trip…to who cares where….

Dirt roads, back roads off the beaten path we find a road side stand where we buy fresh fruits…melons, tomatoes, strawberries, grapes and veggies….corn to be shucked and grilled over a camp fire next to the cast iron skillet of zucchini and mushrooms and peppers. We buy little jars of homemade jam to go on…

Gypsies, Gardens and Growing

It’s a little past 7:30 Monday morning. It’s overcast and cool and beautiful. One kitty is sprawled across the table and other is playing on the floor. The kids are still sleeping and Wayne’s gone to work on a screened in porch. I’m sitting here next to my bay window coffee within reach listening to…

Summer Rain, Flea Market Finds, Life Is Awesome!

The rains finally fell yesterday and for a while it was beautiful. The thunder boomed and lightning streaked the sky so Wayne and I stopped what we were doing to share time and the storm. The garden loved the rain water! Everything is refreshed and growing and so green and promising. I’ll be working for…

Nobody’s Home Today….

It’s a cool peaceful easy morning┬átoday… a good playing hooky from life day, just chillin’ listening to music day hanging with someone you love day….   So…. Lets just unplug the phone today and say nobody’s home today and if someone comes while we’re sitting on the porch drinking our wine we’ll just say… Please…

My Country Home….

Homeward Bound by Simon & Garfunkel was the song I woke up with playing in my head this morning and has prompted my thoughts of Home and memories of home and dream home dreams. I wonder if ever there was a word that conjured more images or thoughts or emotions as the word Home. It’s…
