 Sometimes  you will
never know the value
of a moment until it
becomes a memory.

~ Dr. Seuss

I wish you a wonderful
weekend and for all my
American friends a
Happy Memorial Day.

Hey! It’s summer! Be free and happy

 Homeschool reports are complete
and for me that means summer
vacation begins.

I am putting my hands on each
and every item in my home...
If I don't use it or love it, it's
out of here.

In between cleaning out, taking
care of the garden and all the
animals I have adopted I am
spending all my spare moments
at the beach.

My soul is happy!

Because time itself is like a spiral,
something special happens on your
birthday each year: The same energy
that God invested in you at birth is
present once again. 

~Menachem Mendel Schneerson



This weekend has been about
celebrating the 5th birthday
of my favorite person. All
five of my babies met at
the beach and spent the
day eating, swimming,
laughing, and just enjoying
each others company. It is
so hard for me to believe
that Emerson will be five
on the 7th of this month.

I overslept this morning,
not getting out of bed until
almost 8:30. Today the
temperature is suppose
to climb to 96 degrees,
without the heat index, so
I have plans to stay inside,
knit, read, maybe paint,
and eat ice cream. Butter
Pecan is my favorite favor
of ice cream, what's yours?

There are many wonderful things
that will never be done if you do
not do them.

~Charles D. Gill
Thank you for all the
lovely birthday wishes
for my soul mate. We had
a wonderful time celebrating
his 50th with all the children
here to see their Daddy, eat
barbecue and birthday cake.
[German Chocolate of course,
his favorite.].

 There was special gifts
in the post, thank you
Amanda and Dawn.
 There were new bushes
to plant,

and vegetables to pick. Oh yes,
and lots of weeds to pull. Honestly,
sometimes I think the weeds grow
faster than what I've planted.
Seven turkey eggs were
rescued from the blades
of a tractor and are now
safe in an incubator. I've
never hatched turkey eggs
before so we will have to
see what happens, my
fingers are crossed. I
would love to release seven
new birds back into the
wild. For so long our turkey
population was down, but
now it's starting to make
a come back and I want
it to continue to grow.

Tomorrow I will be
spending the day
helping my second
to the last son move
to his own place in
town, leaving me
with only one left at
home. I have cried
all my tears so I hope
tomorrow to be nothing
but helpful and supportive.
I will confess though that
I would love if all of my
children would live at
home, selfish I know,
but true.

I hope you do something
wonderful this weekend.

Ride the energy of
your own unique spirit. 

~ Gabrielle Roth

 Daylight savings time
has knocked me for a
loop and I am still  trying
to adjust.
 I saw my eagles this week.
Yes, I consider them mine
and I love them. I know
the photo isn't that great, but
by the time I ran inside to grab
the camera and ran back, they
were already heading to the
 I've baked oatcakes twice
this week, they add just
the right touch along side
a cup of tea.
I'm enjoying participating in another
round of Love Notes and sharing
a little of myself with a complete
I watched as the guys
did some major cleaning
up, it's been a long time
in coming and now there
will be a new spot for
my strawberry plants.

But most of my week has been spent on
the couch napping and knitting. I am
so thrilled to finally understand how
to read charts. I knit from left to right
so it took a little research and some
switching of stitches, but now I
am on a roll.

I hope your week was everything you
wanted. We are suppose to be in the
high 70's over the weekend and I
am looking forward to laying in
the hammock and soaking up some
sunshine. Have a great one.

 For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea.
~e.e. cummings

I've been waiting
for you.
It's been a long
week, although
the waves helped.

Happy Weekend
to you, I hope you
have the best one yet!

The peace you seek is there,
it's there between all the traffic
in your mind, stop and rest for
peace will find you if you let it.

 As I looked over my
Christmas list early
yesterday morning I began
to have a panic attack,
I may have added just
a few too many knit
items to my gift giving
list. Maybe?

While I am almost
done with my last Annabel
Cardigan [photos soon],
I am still working on my
sister's scarf, fingerless gloves
for one son, and three others
waiting to be cast on. In
addition, my daughter informed
me that the wee one is
expecting something knit from
me too.

I needed a break, a change
of scenery, anything to calm
down, to learn to breathe

I threw the scarf in a bag,
took myself down town,
sat by the water, knit, and listened
as the world awoke and the
day was underway.
It was peaceful and just what I

then I took myself to the yarn
store, after all, my granddaughter
needs a new scarf!

Books are still being listened to,
this week it is Lone Wolf and
I love it! Honestly, I am ready
go start doing something, anything
to help these magnificent creatures.
One person at a time and so
much can be accomplished!
