And August Ends...

Finishing up projects started...

...and loving these moments.

Those of you with a grandchild,
you know what I mean.

Those who are wondering,
it is love beyond words.

I love this little girl
and her squeals of utter joy
and those smiles,
and oh, those pink toes...

This is daddy!}

Journal...and Baby Andi

...a work in progress

I'm feeling under the weather today
from a mysterious food allergy...

Yesterday, I painted with gesso and acrylics...
Today, I did a little collage, using a fave photo
of my flowers from last summer.

Look out world! I can crawl!

Uncle Drew (my son) and Andi (my 7 month old granddaughter!)

Scootching around is hard work.
Have a happy day!

sometimes I forget

...and then, nature will send me sweet reminders.

 I made some
nearly impossible goals for myself this summer..
I keep reminding my own self how Human I really am.

Thank goodness for learning.
Thank goodness for sunflowers

Feeling it

...a bit of journaling.

Letting go, on pages.
Making things
in order to release the heaviness I have been
feeling in my heart.

There is so much beauty in the world,
the world news has been so terrible.


Aren't we all connected?

Garden Inspiration


...and being in the garden, inspires me

in many ways.

Quiet times...

A Little Lull

Not sure why, but
 I haven't been able to express myself 
creatively lately.

Today is the last day of my favorite month...

Such a pretty month...

Peace and love to you all.
Thanks so much for your visits.

colorful footprints...

Journal playing
about summertime paths I've been on
moments to remember.

I am still so thrilled to be able
to nurture my self
fill up.

My heart bursts with gratitude,
my soul is filling with Light again,
my teacher self is refueling and reflecting,
amidst sunshine & blue skies.

I can actually feel the four walls
coming apart and floating down
into little bits of inspiration
and better ways to teach.

We fit twelve months into ten,
and then relearn how to slow down.

It's quite amazing.

This morning,
I finished redoing my Spelling curriculum
for the year...
but I did it with my journal 
and art supplies on
one side of the dining room table...
and my coffee in the center.

It's the simple pleasures...!

I think, for myself,
there is nothing better than
accomplishment mixed with freedom.
