Back at it…finally

It has been a while girls and boys. Every time I sat down to write a post, I just couldn’t. I was stuck…blocked by emotion. Not sure how to move on with my blog while still dealing with the grief of losing my mom. Somehow it felt wrong. I know that is crazy talk but it took a while to move beyond that thought. So here I am…back at it.

I’ve been busy with a number of things…

such as this wreath. It came together quite nicely from some clearance items. I’m thinking about hanging it under the eaves on our deck. I haven’t actually taken it out there to see if there is enough wall space but I think it would be a lovely addition to the space.

I’ve experimented with some acrylic pours that I’ll share in another post.

The sun is finally out today…we’ve had rain, rain, rain today. I found this cute little nest laying in the yard after a recent storm.

Today was also the first CSA drop off date. They were supposed to start last week but there had been a terrible hail storm that had taken out a lot of the crops. I have to say that I am very pleasantly surprised at the high quality and quantity of produce I got today.

Those carrots are so good!!!!! They taste just like I remember as a kid…only not so gritty. I used to pull them out of the ground, swish them in the rain barrel and eat them.


  1. I have to admit your basil looks great. So green and ready to be plucked.

    Your lovely wreath is beautiful, too. I think you did a fine job creating it.

    Loss is loss, dear. Sometimes the loss happens AFTER everyone goes home (away), thinking you are now well, or you should be over the “problem.” They can’t understand what is holding you back. They have no idea what you are going through because they haven’t experienced it.

    So glad you are finally able to join us in blogland. We are friends who won’t give up on you, no matter HOW LONG it takes to get on with your life.

  2. OMGosh. If you aren’t fond of beets, consider dyeing fabric with them. I can’t find them in any market in town, only chopped and mushed that look like they’ve been cooked, only they are in the produce section.

  3. We mourn in our own ways and in our own time. You know best what you’re ready for.

    Your wreath is beautiful. Great colors 🙂 I always feel sad about nests that don’t make it through storms. Is that a zinnia next to it? Sweet 🙂 You hit the jackpot with the produce! Gorgeous tomatoes!

  4. Well that’s understandable, it’s so nice to see you back in blog-land. Your wreath is beautiful and I thought the flowers were real at first. And don’t get me started on those lovely looking veggies, I bet they tasted delicious! Enjoy yout week! J 😊
