Another day in the country…

Last night I went to bed sad. Bijou dashed out the door yesterday morning as I was coming back in from carrying out the trash. I tried all day long to get him to come back (I now believe Bijou is in fact, a boy) but he wouldn’t have it. He stayed close by though….

A Whole Day Outside

Do you remember the time we spent the whole day outside? It started with watching the sun come up over the trees and hills while sipping coffee and sitting in blissful if not a little sleepy silence. Followed by breakfast eaten on the porch….eggs and toast and oatmeal and more coffee of course. Then we took…

Peace Flags, Ice Cream Cake and A Good Day

It’s one of those days when all the planets must be in the exact right alignment for peace art and creativity. Yesterday’s manic creative chaos has departed and today I have been making Peace flags most of the day. My drawing table was covered in cats…Piper and Bijou…so I’ve worked outside in the sun and…

Creative Chaos….Practically Manic!

I am almost overwhelmed with creativity today which sounds like it would be a good thing but actually it’s distracting and feels like Creative ADD. I can’t focus for long on particular project before jumping to another one and I’m chewing gum like a chain gum chewer lol. I want to work on zines….more than…

Everybody Has A Story and So Does Every House…

  Every afternoon now I’d rather be outside than in. Well, actually I’d usually rather be outdoors than indoors most anytime but I get really tired of feeling chilly in the a/c and prefer the breeze and trees and blue skies. I think a really cool house would be open you know with the outdoors…

Rainy’s Birthday, Peace Love Life!

Twenty years ago my first child was born at 7:30 pm and sixteen days late! She changed my life forever and thank goodness she did! Kids have a way of putting Life in perspective don’t they? We’ve had a great day….we’ve grilled and swam and had a hippie good time. Life is best when it’s…

At Any Given Moment…Magic Can Happen

Right now I’m sitting on the porch floor painting a hippie tote while Wayne mows the grass. I love that smell. The scent of freshly cut grass. It smells like summer….like rain and dirt and possibilities. I just love it. My fingers are stained with shades of green and fuscha and blue and I love…

Carbon Foot Prints In Life

I found the  foot prints of my kids when they were born. There on the parchment paper proof of life, little feet that will someday walk away from childhood into adulthood like it or not. Little feet that will first learn to walk straight into open arms for big hugs rewards for first steps  along…

The Farmer’s Almanac, Our Own Country Store Dream and Life

Okay, so I didn’t get the plank and catwalk into the garden yesterday because it rained all day long!! But this morning looks like it’ll clear for a bit. The Farmer’s Almanac was right it has been a unusally wet summer and June has been our hottest month! How do they know these things? I…

All I’ve Got To Do Is Be Happy…George Harrison said so!

The day is drizzly and I love those kinds of days. The incense is burning…Nag Champa, I love Nag Chmapa. Harrison is singing my favorite song….Give Me Love, Give Me Peace on Earth. My pink lava lamp is burning….I love the pink! My coffee is chocolate glazed donut in my latest favorite mug/bowl with a…

Picnics In Bed,

A very long time ago I worked at a convince store called the E Z Shop. I worked from 4pm to midnight. After work I would take home with me something to eat and a magazine from the stand with the owner’s permission since I always brought it back after reading it. I could never…

Acorn Squash, Wanderlust, and Bamboo Platters

Sunday has flown by. It’s after 6pm! Already! It’s been a great day though. We went to the Webb Rd. flea market where I bought another week’s worth of incense from my soul sister. I love love love her and her son! The incense is great and powerful too. Ever since I started burning the…
