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.

I so love mornings...

 ...with the fresh, crisp air...

...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!

With gratitude,

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,

will spark in just a moment.

It'll be beautiful~
I promise.
