Greetings friends. I was somewhat dumbstruck this morning when I realized August was history. September hours begin tomorrow at the food cart, school starts next weeks for the grands, I bought a boiled wool sweater. Oh yes I did. I saw it coming. This summer was hot but it was the summer we finally got […]
Category: Cutler City
The year began “on the edge” at the beach, with a beautiful clear and bright day…sun pouring into the beach house, shining off the bay…it felt like California… But that was only New Year’s Day, and quickly it became the usual Oregon winter… So we stayed cozy in front of the fire… and I got […]
On the Way?
So we were having lunch the other day at Taproot when R nudged me and pointed…”On the Way”…oh good lord, I haven’t blogged in MONTHS! I doubt anybody is out there. ..well you’re there, but maybe not HERE? It isn’t so much that I have nothing to say…but that the things I’m thinking about are […]
Enough is Enough…
…as we like to think, but there’s always a bit more coming at us. Here we are at the end of the 26th week of quarantine. I now own at least 15 masks of varying types to go with any outfit, except I don’t need outfits because I don’t go anywhere…but…I might? We have managed […]
And So Ends Week 15
Oh my. Remember the “Friday feeling” (relief), the “Sunday feeling” (dread/anticipation), the “Wednesday feeling” (half-way)? Now that we’re in a different realm entirely, the landscape is only populated with random events, delights, dreads in no sequential order. Maybe the senses are more alive? Though I think I’ve always enjoyed my life as it flows around […]
Here’s Tory’s photo of the seal pup on our beach…umbilical still attached…Mama came back and off they went. I read today she only nurses the pup for 4 weeks and then abandons him to fend for him (her) self.
Nancy sent me this lovely hand-made birthday card that is an image for our times (thank you Nancy!)… But to back track…we went to the beach Saturday for my birthday, and to clean out the pantry and retrieve some toilet paper (who is it that HAS all the toilet paper I wonder?). In spite of […]
Whaat? It’s August 1st? Hi…it’s been a while. My exhibit is over and I’ve navigated the often-post-show let-down…and in checking my photo file I see a lot has happened but I’m speechless on this subject so I’ll just roll out some images thereby proving summer is summer, mine not too different from yours…beach, garden, family…occasional […]
The “Live in the Moment” Thanksgiving
So the other week my cell phone told me one day that I was spending an average of 4 hours a day looking at it. I was horrified. So this holiday Roger and I were trying to live in the moment…to savor the tastes, the people, the holiday ambience, the love, the food…and guess what…? […]
August already??? What about all the summer stuff I was going to do and all the posts I was going to write… In deciding I write about Portland artists too much, we went (in July) to see DE May’s show at PDX Gallery and across the street to see Natalie Laswell’s piece at Blackfish Gallery…both […]
