Sorry for the radio silence. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy in a good way. And busy-in-a-good-way is good as long as it doesn't spin out of control, right? Lots of pretty colors but nothing that overwhelms. Just like autumn should be. Continue reading

I'm a-tryin'...I'm atryin'... *laughs* It's hard to keep September in perspective though, isn't it? We'll have to bolster each other when one of us gets low.

"We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost." —Henry Rollins Hello, September. I see you hiding among the rocks. You in all your bright color. You really are back in full force though you pretend not to be.... Continue reading

Oh, dear. The dreaded why-won't-this-locker-open-oh-wait-it's-the-wrong-one. (Tell her that later it happens with cars in large parking lots.) I had to laugh because I could hear your voice, Carrie, as you explained and reexplained again. Did you mention to her about going to the wrong class and then having to leave to find the right one? I told my two that that happens to EVERYONE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH so... you know, no worries. ;-)

School house doors are a little intimidating when you're seeing them for the first time. That doesn't seem to change. One Room? Can you even imagine what that was like? I can't even stand when the internet goes out for half a day, which makes writing on a slate with... Continue reading

It's definitely worth the trip! There was a lot of driving to get to the North Rim. I hear the South Rim is easier to get to but gets 4 million visitors a year compared to North Rim's 400,000 visitors.

“Intelligence is like four-wheel drive. It only allows you to get stuck in more remote places.” —Garrison Keillor Had a chance to go with a client/pal to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Never been before. You? Well, if you have been you know that words really can’t describe... Continue reading

No sooner did I just get the last of the antique photos posted (with me going on about how happy that last pic is with the Model T) and The Univierse serves a real one up to me. In real time. We just came across it by accident {{or was... Continue reading

So, yeah. Bins and bins of strangers' photos. Here are some of the others that I decided to buy on that recent trip to the local antiques store. {{I feel like Shorpy or something.}} As I went through a small box that my youngest daughter had pointed out, I noticed... Continue reading

Just got back from the post office in a downpour. There's a little antique store we like to browse in on the next block when we're in the mood, so we waltzed in there. Always something new even though it's all old. There’s the usual stuff like costume jewelry, figurines... Continue reading

Like most people, I’ve found that ideas come at the most inconvenient times. They happen when I’m walking the dog, waiting for The Daughters to exit their school, or listening to the radio. That’s cool. I’m open to whenever they want to come because I love that rush of creativity.... Continue reading

Thanks, Liz. I just hope I'm inspired every month and that it stays cohesive. I think it will. I gotta say, though my digital camera is nice but sometimes I still miss my old film camera. It was so much more familiar in my hands.

Uhhhhh….Yeeeeeaaaaah. So, not much news from me the past month. I don’t know if it’s just seasonal or situational, but March always ends up being difficult on some level or another. It’s not that I haven’t been putting my energy toward good things, they just seem unworthy of a post.... Continue reading
