"It's the LITTLE things"

if you go in for a close up, the word "little" is teeny tiny eensy... LIVING each moment as it comes...

this was on a wall in front of a store. i thought, "how creative"...a pallet with succulents planted in it...CLEVER

This was at sun up one morning this week. I was outside on our deck and didn't alter this one bit. I just couldn't believe the reflections!

Happy Gardening and Sunday to YOU ALL! sister came over for a couple of hours wanting to learn some techniques. of course we had tons of fun! after she left, i kept staring and really liking this

if you enlarge twice and peek up in the right hand corner...there she was, not only the start of her face, but a staff next to her arm as well...hmmm

...and then she emerged! love when this happens!today, she is wearing her polka dot cotton attire with a dyed blue chiffon accent to highlight her garden. there are silk remnants added to some of her leaves as well! *)

well, now i know, this part below about not being able to leave comments...blogger is on the blitz, i couldn't leave you one either, jane. i'm sure it'll straighten out in just a matter of time.

Our Blogs, Our Shared Journey's

Sacramento Delta...flying into home, sacramento, ca.
oh my goodness, my fuzzy mind. after reading each of your messages and re-reading my last post. my mom lingers on, she hasn't passed yet. i will reveal that when it does happen. in the meantime, i shall not keep bringing it up. our blogs are our journals where we tend to reveal much, sometimes.

i am one of those REAL people that does let it all hang out a good deal of the time. i've grown quite comfortable here. emelie, her message was spot on, should you read it. it's a rollercoaster ride and i'm not the only one on it. i am so grateful for your love, GRATEFUL beyond words.

more POSITIVITY coming your way!

...and...finally...i painted yesterday. i painted and painted and painted my way into positivity! "tears will continue to bubble up and catch me off guard", my friend janet reminds me...that's okay, it's healing we know! katie, you know your mom's presence has been on my mind lately, so strong the sense, the UNsense. there is love, there is healing. jane, same thing, i think mom will meet your two moms and NANA, seeing the thread that sews us together...the importance of it, the Beauty of it! XO

i've been knitting and crocheting, it's been theraputic of late. i finished two throws and one pillow to match (sort of ish, you know me :)), "no matchy matchy"!

ahh...Nana! the time has flown in so many ways, yet stood still at times with no forward or back. and then the memory of my mama's mama...when i thought nana was leaving forever, i found out she'd be back to whisper in my ear and forever teaches me still...

our girl, showed up at the artwalk thursday nite. she stunned and surprised me, supporting me and holding me up that entire evening. it wasn't in me at the time to celebrate. God's gifts are bountiful!

"sundown" yesterday

the moon, in the distance, high up on a hill with a tree in front of it, such wonder, such beauty!i wish YOU ALL, a peaceful and wondrous weekend!
