Summer Afternoon

"Summer afternoon ~ Summer afternoon;
to me those have always been
the two most beautiful words
in the English language."

~ Henry James

It may sound a tad goofy...
but there is something so completely
wonderful and relaxing to be
stitching harvest~y this and that
on a fine summer afternoon.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I heart LOVE

I always say that in life you either come from a place of fear or you come from a place of love.

Fear is jealousy, hatred, cynicism, general poop~y~ness...

Love is compassion, generosity, gratefulness...

I choose love...

A big ol' Sack of it!

Have a splendid weekend.

Oh my, my....where has the time gone?  I blogged on an early December day and when I turned around it was a late January afternoon.

Sometimes creative souls, like myself, let our creative tea cups go empty and we need to regroup, recharge and revive our pot of tea so that our creative cups will run~ith over!  Cha~cha~cha!


I wanted to share a splendid little story about a moment a couple of weeks ago in the produce department of the grocery store.  It was one of those moments that gets in your soul and makes you really think.

This woman comes up to me while I was selecting apples and tells me that she loves my cowboy boots...."so do I", I tell her enthusiastically...and as I am about to tell her about how stinkin' comfortable they are...when she cuts me off and leans in and says to me..."they make you look fearless"...yes, she said... fearless.  It took my breath away.

Never thought of myself this way...but I like it.  The truth is...when I wear my boots I do feel a tad more spunky about everything I am doing.

Little did I know that my ol' worn cowboy boots were a mirror to my soul.

And, they are....I am fearless.
