The house in the garden, #18 and many thanks…

  Today I have many photos and many thoughts in my head. So, I’m going to write and post photos along the way. Sometimes it’s hard for me to get going in the mornings. Maybe it’s a phase I’m going through, where I wake up and feel like going right back to bed. Where I…

Repeating history and I told you so…

I am still smarting from the loss of a year-long friendship with someone with whom I had shared a lot. I have always been a loyal and trustworthy friend, and when you reach a point where that is not reciprocated it can be very painful. I’m also not into surface relationships, so this makes finding…

Still busy…

We worked all weekend on the house. My back feels it this morning. A new collage piece… Painting is nearly completed, but we purchased two much-needed ceiling fans at Costco and H spent all of yesterday installing one of them. They are Hunter fans, very good quality, but a bit more complicated to put together….

Busy…busy…

Two more weeks…

We had a good laugh last week when one of the DJs H works with announced there would be two more weeks of winter predicted by the groundhog. Expectedly, he caught a lot of flack for that. This guy has a tendency to not research anything. I’m actually ok with there being six more weeks, as I…

Isn’t she lovely…

I’ve been enjoying the winter cactus blooms. About five are fully opened. Three more decent sized blooms are on their way. More than half a dozen are just beginning. It’s wonderful to have a blooming plant in the house again. On the creative front, there has been drawing practice: I’m especially fond of the basket…

Not a lot going on…

The paw is still mending, so there’s not much progress to report other than it’s feeling a bit better. It’s easier to type now, which is nice. But last night I could hardly play cards it hurt so bad, but it was one more thing H and I could do together before he returned to…
