This Week


This has been a somewhat slower and quieter week in my life.
Maybe because it has been so very hot and I have followed
the course of the day wherever it took me.

So here is a glimpse.

The Miller Outdoor Shakespeare Festival .

It was an enchanted evening.


I have been waiting almost one hundred days to see my first flower !
The first today of many more morning glory days !


I think I am finally happy with these arrangements on my dresser and night table.
Well Maybe !!


I have not opened this drawer of my jewelry box in so long. I collected old ivory and jade.
I did wear it !
Now I just look at it. I need to change that way of thinking ,
Oh ! Yes I do.


The Perseid Meteor Shower


I am so ready for this magical show in the sky tonight !
My old wicker chaise is piled full of pillows along with a light blanket and positioned in just
the right spot to see as much of the entire sky as possible from my back yard.
The thermos is ready to fill with hot and sweet coffee. My latest Diana Krall CD
Quiet Nights is already in the player .

I am so in love with the night sky.
Look up and be amazed !!

Sometimes it is good to just go where the day takes you .

I hope your day takes you somewhere perfect. 

I think my day did .
