...still cool...

...and always with a new promise!

 I am grateful for my family...
and granddaughter Andi, now 6 months old !

I am grateful for my loving companion
and emotional nurse, Ellie!

Ellie is a Toy Fox Terrior extraordinaire!

I'm Back...

...adjusting to life outside of the classroom
and to Not Rushing Around...

...because first I threw a huge Luau.

Now I am relearning how to

Last night, I sat quietly
on my back porch,
looking at the flowers
and then the moon.

Summer Mornings

Sitting outside in the cool of the morning...

...sipping coffee
with barely a breeze
moving the freshness of the air,

...and only the sound of cicadas
and a few birds, but not too many,
and I have found my bliss.

I will always be a summer girl
~a morning person...

"Hey there, coffee girl..."

An evening in the garden...

 Take a walk with me, please...

The sun is setting,
but wait with me,
the fireflies
will spark in just a moment.

It'll be beautiful~
I promise.

Summer of Color Week3

I haven't had too many words to speak lately...
instead, I am reading Awakened by Angela Watson
and am reflecting on my teaching
this past year.

This morning,
I did what I have dreamed about doing
all winter:
I sat on my cool back porch
with my morning coffee.
I let summertime slip in.
I absorbed the beauty of the flowers
and the quiet
 of my favorite time of the day.
Now that's bliss.


This is inspired by Kristin's SOC4,
week three's colors of
gray & lavender,
with a POP of plum.

Thank you sweet Kristin!
