home

morning gardenLavande- grand opening

an apron full

bountiful

The places we escape to, are often right here at home

I’ve been scarce here lately. Both of my sons came home for a visit and we enjoyed some much needed family time. And since it’s summer, like many of you, I have been spending a lot of time outdoors. In fact, most sunny mornings I take my laptop out on our deck and do all my photo editing. I now have a new little assistant..

taking a snack break..

Meet Cheeky…she works for peanuts
and sunflower seeds.

and thanks to my sons, Cheeky is enjoying the good life..

“We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
Wind’s against our back
We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
In my pink Cadillac”

Looking forward to catching up with everyone this week.

I love this day

We feel nostalgic, we dwell in the memories of the past, we talk about how great those days were and how we would do anything to just go back in time and live those days again..

Perhaps we fail to realize the fact that tomorrow we will say the same things about today, about the days we are living in now, about the emotions we are feeling now, about the time we are spending now..

I love this day. I love this weird feeling I feel today. I belong here.”

There is a Light in Me

Whether in daytime or in nighttime
I always carry inside
a light.
In the middle of noise and turmoil
I carry silence.
Always
I carry light and silence.

~ Anna Swir

something so calming about this poem, found HERE among many other wonderful words and images.

Seems these days we could all use a little light and silence.
