How is your sleep? As you get on in years is it harder for you to sleep?
There are some amazing finds on sleeping and naps you must read about!
Where you sleep matters, what you sleep in matters, what your wearing matters,
the colors around you matters!

I have many posts on this subject head over and read.

Sleep well...

I love this season. Crisp days & cool nights. The scents of wood burning stoves and fireplaces
 releasing scents forming paths for my late day walks!
I walk on crunchy leaves, with street lights and the sky peppered with orange and light pinks on a
deep blue haze.
I ready to gather supplies for woven baskets and knitted items for Autumn projects to welcome this lovely season.

little card drawings

I make these little drawings of Pen & Ink and Watercolor, on watercolor
paper, for cards!
On the front the Pedestal Cake and an open envelope so one can
personalize, and on the back I put a mailbox on it.
Been making these since I copyrighted them back in 2000 yr.

Fathers Day Sunday


My beloved Father,shown here w/my son Shayn a very long time ago!
He and Mother had us five children,three sons and two daughters, dog and cat, and one Grandson.
He was a hard worker, affording us every summer of our life on Nantucket Island.
We all miss him and I was so close to him, the first born.
It's so important for daughter's to have great relationships with their dad, I did.

Happy Fathers Day!

cell phone

The title maybe should have been "OR THE LACK OF"

Well my cell phone died, simply one day it stoped working.
I thought of not using mine for some time just to see if I could manage.
Now, I do not use mine like most, constantly, daily, for me it's for emergencies,
as I still like having a land phone for regular chat.

So, anyway going on week seven I decided to get a new phone, new number
and a new color.

I see people walking and driving on their cell phones and a few times 
people on the phone with another ringing in their pocket and or handbag!
To each his own.

It is more a safety buffer for me, if something happens on the road or off Island
I need to let the Dr. office I may be running late, or call a taxi.
They have a lot of advantages, but for me all those weeks really did not affect me.

Trying to live a more Hygee life, but I will admit, I did miss my cell phone
and now have a new one.

pink singer

In my youth I had no desire to learn to sew, none!
Then there was a time when I sewed by hand and made lovely quilts.
Of late, a couple of years now a strong
urge caused me to purchase her.
One, to get back quilting and taking clothes in. I figured just basics
nothing fancy.
Along with a basic sewing class and I'm on my way.
