Your waterlogued photo is just stunning ... Thank for the heads up about the skies. I'll let Himself know - he'll be keen to get the telescope out!
That's a beautiful tapestry of plants and stones ... Great inspiration for a quilt, if you're looking :). Those candy hearts with a message on are called Love Hearts over here, and they're made in a sweet factory about ten miles away!

Wey-hey! Is it done? Getting ready to pirouette :).

Kim Manley Ort is new to me, so thank-you for the info. I am so looking forward to seeing how this develops for your during the year. The photos you've posted are already lovely! I was wondering if you also knew about Kim Klassen's classes? I enjoyed her Be Still and My Still Sunday last year.

Aren't these just super? The one of Norman on the worktop made me smile (after I called out "Yikes! Haven't you got a set of little folding steps?): such an unusual subject for a watercolour and yet so full of visual interest! Each one made me gasp more than the one before and your final one would grace any wall. They'd make a great set of cards ...
These are all delightful - the colours are beautifully strong against the white. Blues and purples are so difficult to photograph, I find. A lovely trio ...
That's a very upbeat and positive start to the year :). I must look up about the Women's March ... I like your list for January - such a great idea.
I am a great fan of 'good enough' :). These pages look wonderful and the photos and stories just shine centre stage. Sorry to be late, but hoping to be able to keep up a bit better soon.

Such a mixture of things in your week ... I hope the goodbyes will have fond remembrances in too. And your tree looks wonderful - such a great height. i am with you on the dental front (ugh), and will be experiencing the delights of physio next week for the first time :).

Watching and thinking and planning sounds just right for this time of year ... I've missed loads of your posts, but am glad to be able to catch up and find such a beautiful photo today.
Your planner look so very pretty ... I will definitely go and follow your links. Your comment about witty versus functionality made me smile - I'd be right with you there!

Ahhh! Such a bright and happy shot. I love letters written to others in scrapbooking.
Oh golly, it's hard when we can't get to sleep :(. I think if I'd had a chance to be in your lovely studio, I'd be so entranced I wouldn't have slept either! The worst thing I find is that if I wake one night, I seem to get into a pattern of it for a few days. Taking lots of walks so I'm physically tired, not drinking fluids after 8 p.m., and writing lists so I'm not carrying anything in my head usually seems to do the trick. Hoping you find something that works ...

How glorious to have had such a nice day for your special celebration! Sending you warmest congratulations, Honoré, and wishing you many more happy birthdays to come :). Did Norman play Happy Birthday on the sax for you?
I love that mason jar - you've used it again with such great effect. Your shabby chic is definitely on the elegant and clean side :). And I think we have all been affected this weekend ...

Woah, great to see Norman with that sax! He looks like a pro - I'd have been mesmerised too. Love that mirror shot, front and back - what a little sweetheart.
So touched that although you are on the other side of 'the pond', you have been thinking of you all over here ... Your MSQT has a restful-but-engaged-with-the-world sound today.

Well done on that win! And so interesting to have the story outline woven through with glimpses of your quilt - a lovely read today.

Isn't it infuriating? As a Typepad user myself, I have given up on trying to comment from Typepad because it keeps failing to recognise me. I just use a google address instead.

How great that just when you were short of inspiration, something so fascinating turned up :). That's a sweet photo of you all, and good to know that Johnny was fine, in the end. I loved your description of all the things you did together - it reminded me of being about six and out with the neighbourhood children trying to trap wasps in jamjars!

Nice to see you smiling together - and yes, I did think you were holding hands :). Sorry you've not been feeling so good though, and I hope the punk-y feeling shifts itself very soon. Your decking is looking very smart, isn't it? Hoping you enjoy the making for plans, even if the decluttering isn't up to much!

How nice to get a glimpse of him, albeit in watercolour! I can just imagine him singing as he busies himself at the worktop ... Thanking him, and all veterans, for their service and what it has meant for future generations.
I am always interested in how people use/decide to use their time so this has been a very helpful read, Karen, and thank-you for showing us your pages and how they help you. I like the bit about creating a compelling environment. I've been making 'mini-environments' and it's working well! I fear I may have to google that book ...
Oh my goodness, what splendid photos - you did well to capture this! Isn't he a lovely colour and texture? I like his slightly grumpy expression: "Who are you lookin' at, kiddo ..".
Wow, that's a wonderful story - and especially since you have the original bit of paper. Now there's a memory-keeper for you!
