What is magical to me as I look at, take in and appreciate these small pieces is how they all have something that touches another piece, in some way. Each with their own intention, I see them calling out for a bit of what their neighbor is saying. So do enjoy seeing how you juxtapose pieces of your work...always I am enchanted by the "beasts" and stars and moons and suns come together in a related, cohesive picture of the story. Kristin

Another wonderful recipe to try with the courgettes at the Saturday market...small, just beginning to grow this season. A wonderful recipe to use on Earth Day this year. Beautiful photos and the rice looks perfection ... Kristin

this will be my first year of planting turmeric; other root crops do very well so as I prepare the soil I am thinking about this added potential for the use if I get a nice result. Once again they say snow flurries...no warm sun for so many crops, but the lettuces and Asian greens have begun to show their intentions...Perhaps it is the unknown of spring's unfolding that holds my attention year after year. Looking forward to see the colors you get with turmeric and alum. Kristin

Your April photos make this return to winter here on the west slope of the Rockies not so disappointing - I sit dreamily looking at the monitor...waiting and hoping that soon the seeds planted will bring forth greens, and the dandelions will wake up for the bees. Winter is being a slow, petulant season this time around the sun. Kristin

Yes, yes..love this smiling being! Smiling for me - seeds for greens to cook, salads and herbs all tucked into earth here yesterday..light rain this morning, warmer days and soon fresh food from my land. Spring is always a special big smile time of year for me. Visiting birds are singing and smiling too...I am sure they are smiling. Kristin

It is with a full heart that those memories hang on with me, and your words spoke so well of the journey we take in remembering and missing. My father, too, was everything and his passing at age 93, a long well-lived life, was still far too soon for me. Thank you for sharing the story you hold of your father. Kristin

Grace...it is pure delight to see your "body of work" gathered together those pieces still with you and calling out to the pieces resting wonderfully well around the globe. Your doll is, as all others I have seen in photos and books, spectacular, and the gourd so wonderful...but the journey with cloth and stitch you have taken since first stitches with Jude is pure delight for me to see. So many stories have called out to be stitched and they tell of a journey, strong, resilient and beautifully manifested on the land of New Mexico. What delights lie ahead as you bring your energy to the land of moss and oak...oh the stories that will call out to me stitched, expressed. A Delightful moving on and letting go story..thank you for letting me join in the following and sharing. Kristin

The nearly completed look on this level is stunning and makes the whole project perfection. I love the painting that will replace the mirror as it complements the other paintings above the cooking area. Simply wonderfully imagined, re-structured and decorated, the fisherman's house is delicious. Kristin

With very large, very old lilacs in my yard, I await spring's full arrival. The visiting seed eating birds are feasting on last year's blossom memories and just this morning as I sit at my desk there is an opening of the green leaves, pushing forth from their tightly held buds. Oh soon, so very soon purple, lavender and white lilacs will fill the sir surrounding my home. Your wonderful photo reminds me not to give up hope for blossoms as the early morning snow is melting. kristin

catching the water..finding reflections..stirring the "pot" with images..falling ceilings a possibility here as well..so it is, and the enjoyment of just stepping along lightly is a good thin...I could easily fall into the photos today, beautiful watery dreams. Kristin

Gloriously beautiful Alyssa and blossoming Emrie Grace....and your lasagna, the DMV for sure can wait another day...to treat yourself with such deliriousness,is, I am sure, perfection for the day. The moving, getting things and animals and self ready, moving along at a good clip. In the blink of an eye everything will be shifting and moving to Chico...and new adventure, a new landscape in so many ways...and just what is right for each of us as the ages keep putting one more number on the stack. As one who made such a shift late in my 60's, I say, yes, yes and a big yes to everything coming up new and fresh and alive...it will be wonderful to follow the stories you write of the leaving, the going, the transition and all that will be new.. a wonderful story to weave.

It is such a wonderful combining of old and new in comfortable related colors and motifs...love seeing hints of the theme of sea coming in sculpture, lamps, paintings and bits added for texture...you are genius. When there is the perfect rug, no doubt it will call out to you. The space is wonderful without, but a piece of me says that for the right one, yes to the idea. Kristin

A beautifully crafted space..the story filled with you humor had me laughing out loud, filling my house with the joy you sent out today...beauty, craftsmanship, artistic arrangements...the bathroom is like a perfect work of art, an assemblage of disparate pieces that all fit exquisitely together...the fig leaf is perfect.

Oh my gosh...I totally forgot about the check point stations when you go into CA...always a pain because when we went up to Oregon and back we had to make sure we had no fresh fruit in our food locker....and plants, well that would be an issue...but maybe there is a way to pack and send some iris to your family ahead of time, maybe. What exciting times are ahead and the energy keeps flowing toward the new land. Kristin
