Here we are in September...Happy New Year!
This is a picture of a book about ironing. I did not buy it.
I have always felt that September is the beginning of the year. January always just feels like something to be endured, (even though we have Josh's birthday in there, and usually manage something fun on the 5th). But September! There is canning to be done, preserving all those luscious fruits and vegetables that are so beautiful and delicious. There are new books to be ordered, new schedules to make, plans and beginnings and clubs! I love September, except for the fact that it means summer is over, it's my favorite time of year.
This is me, in Heaven, or at least on a lavender farm in Sequim (pronounced "Skwim") in Washington. I was told that I could pick all the lavender I wanted...for free.
I don't know why I was so blessed.
Sometimes you just have to accept that God really does love you.
Heaven smells really good.
I have decided to try to refocus my blog, (or not) and try to decide what I want from it. Is it a place to share what I am learning? Is it a family journal? Is it a place to share my creative side? Is it a place to brag and show off my wonderful grandchildren? (Absolutely! LOL) Once I figure it out I'll let you know. In the meantime, I will do what seems right at the time.
This is me and my cousin Kathryn on a yellow thing being dragged behind a boat in the Pacific Ocean near a place called Smugglers Cove. It was not as cold as it might have been, though I screamed a lot.
No apologies seem necessary, and you're invited along for the ride, but I can't promise you I know where I'm going!
These are some rocks I left on the beach. Because Liam told me I was only allowed to bring ONE (!!) rock home. I cheated, but I did leave some for next time.
I can't visit a beach without missing my seester, who loves rock picking as much as me. I wished really hard that she could join me and I wrote her name in the sand so that next time I go, we'll be there together.
This....well this is gum. On a wall. Lots, and lots of gum on a very big wall in Post Alley at Pike Place in Seattle.
No, I don't know why.
Yes, you can go have a shower now.
I know I wanted to when I saw it.
