Find Me...

It's not that I want to wish Time away.
I don't.
I know how precious it is.

It's just that, well, it was just so hot these
past few days.

And I was barefoot
or in sandles
showing teal painted toes.

And I felt the sun on my skin...
...and, well,
I'm gone...

Find me.

Or not.

Still summer dreamin'

Thoughts on a Page...

I'll worry, but I'll love deeply
and be so deeply grateful
for them.



Wishing you love.

Journal Background

I opened up a new bottle of spray ink, but it wouldn't spray...
so I ended up taking the top off
and splattering it...raspberry.

I'm enjoying using a new journal.

Thank you for visiting!

Finding Happy

Just a saying I tell myself often.

It also helps to
have another sunny day off...

Seems like I am walking through
a Silly Tunnel this weekend,
because of yesterday
and now this morning...

I have to share another funny
with you:

I took my little Ellie (toy fox terrior)
for a long walk early this morning
before it got too hot.
Along our way,
a car pulled up and parked along
the road, right in front of us,
blocking our path.
I then noticed that there was
a garage sale nearby...
A couple (about 40 yrs old), got out.
Ellie immediately walked right up
and began barking. I apologized
and explained that she doesn't like men
at first,
but that she's friendly and won't bite,
(and yes, she's protecting me!).

The man backed off while his wife
explained that they are dog lovers.

She then gets down low, puts her hand
out to Ellie, and exclaims,

"She is so cute;
I want to take her home
and put pajamas on her!"


This gets more odd and funny to me every hour...!!

So, my funniest part of the day happened

When Singing and Laughter Came Together

I'm sure we all have moments
every day
that should be written down
so we can savor them
even when the memory fades...

...just a simple page
in order to remember
a simple dork-moment
of mine!

Today is a spectacular day to have as a day off!
What a gift.

Hope you're enjoying
special moments of your own!

What made you laugh today?

Sentimental About Time

When our children reach milestones
we feel and respect Time
even more.

Summertime Dreams

When your thoughts wander, where do they go?

All winter, I dream of feeling the sun on my skin...
now it's coming true
and I am getting really, really excited.

I'm even having travel thoughts.
Peaceful Saturday to you!

Thanks so very much for stoppin' in!
I love it when you do!

Sunshine and Sunday's Goodness

After a hard day, it's with a happy heart
that I come home and face the sunshine.

And below, my Mother's Day treat!

It was all too pretty to open right away!
My daughter spoiled me:

I love paper...
and things made with paper...
and more paper.

Journal love.

Thank you for saying hi!
Have a happy day!

Clarity and Beauty

I have been visiting and lovin' your blogs,
but I haven't visited my own this past week.

Some weeks are like that.

I am lovin' Mother's Day...still...
but I have a few moments in between
to create a collage page
and jot down some bits and pieces.

And the wonderful Clarity spectacles piece
was given to me by
none other than the beautiful
and wildly creative, Sherry,

Such a thoughtful gift
for my Word for 2012!

Happy Mother's Day!

Journal page

I painted and gessoed and painted some more...
and then found this photo
and well, I ended up covering up most of my paint
but I just needed to use this photo
with the gorgeous henna hands
and peaceful softness.

And then I doodled
and used tapes
and wrote with my trusted
fine point Sharpie markers.

And I felt peaceful.
That's what I love about journaling.

Thank you for visiting.

Moon Magic

...and dance by the light of the moon...

Watching it first come up on the horizon,
golden and glowing, was spectacular.

Bella Luna!

Then it passed beautifully through ocean-like lines of clouds,
making them silver.

Do you want to dance to
Van Morrison's Moondance
Cat Stevens' Moon Shadow?

 Next, a lantern was set up...

...and sent into the night sky.

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie,
that's amore!

Memories of a Lifetime

You know how you think and feel very deeply
when you go to a wedding
or to a memorial service?

You think about your past, or your future,
or your whole life.

Today was one of those days.

A childhood friend passed away
and today was his memorial
and everyone I grew up with was there
and it was surreal.

Memories swirling all around
all of us.

Friends and neighbors I hadn't seen in 30 years
and it brought back another lifetime.

And Craig,
you would have loved it all.
And we all loved you.

A Moment in May

Those little Moments...
rare times
when I allow

Why do I wait so long?!

Wishing you simple pleasures.


PS. An incredible simple pleasure awaits us all tomorrow.
Check out the Full Moon!

It's supposed to be exquisite!
