Ok, I’m very sorry if you have been reading my blog and have the address memorized or tabbed, or have me on blog lines…..

BUT, I can’t take it here on WordPress any longer!

I do like some things here, but not enough to make me stay. I have discovered lately that the way I “blog”, and express myself, is mainly through pictures. I’m a visual person, and it’s through the pictures that my words follow.  I find WordPress much more difficult to use for the layouts I want to do. I find myself just not blogging now, because it will take me too long to figure it out. It might just be a personal preference, but I’m moving back……



Uh, sorry for the confusion ?!








                                                                                                                 Let the games begin!


The feeding starts out serious.









Pretending to eat it too.                                                                                                                                                  Teasing Maddy!







Now he paints the poor kids face with it!


                                                                                                                                                                                               His work here is done.

” I love this guy!!”

“I’m not moody, disorganized, or self absorbed, I’m artistic!”


My mom and I ran across this quote in a store once, and we cracked up!! I was so very thrilled! I have found a phrase that can describe me! You could add messy, lazy, distracted…..But here’s the thing- I like things clean and organized, and I want it that way. But its difficult for me because of my distraction level, because of my need for artistic vision, creative outlets, inspiration to get the mundane done. This came to light again yesterday, as I found myself ‘bored’. Now, I could clean out the fridge, scrub the bathrooms, mop the floors, meal plan….. BUT UGH!! I can’t seem to get in gear for those sorts of tasks unless I’m inspired. Sooo, that may look messy or lazy, but really my mind just needs stimulation!  I decided that I didn’t like my computer area, appeared too cluttered. But to fix it, I couldn’t just clean it up, I needed a master plan! One of creativity and adventure. Sooooo instead of doing the dishes in the sink, I got to work sanding and painting an old cabinet red that we had out in the garage. Well then, while I’m at it, I don’t like the wall behind the computer either, too blah…. So I started a harlequin pattern in chocolate brown and tan on the wall. I’m now excited and have energy! The office area is a mess, there is sanding dust everywhere, and there is a half painted wall: To some, messy and disorganized. To me: FABULOUS, EXCITING, INSPIRING!!!

*(I made myself do the dishes this morning, and clean up the kitchen. So that now my reward is being artistic the rest of the day!!)


We love you!!!!!!


I have found new life in the soil










I have found refreshment in the water













I have found strength in the growth





I have found hope in the promise of the harvest











I have found peace in the quiet of the air













I have found kindness in nuturing the fragile stem














I have found happiness in my garden.
