Somebody left a poem in our beach book in early July of 1999. As I often do, I was reading back in the volumes to see what we were doing this same week in other years. This poem struck me as a summing up of beach time for us… maggie and milly and molly and […]
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 […]
Well we’re ALL trying to “live in the moment”…to “lessen our screen time”…to enjoy our lives as we live them…yes? Yes. That precludes writing about these moments, but I continue to gather the images as if I WERE writing about them, and now I’m way behind. So how about trying to catch up with just […]
Well the month is half gone…the light remains until 9:00 p.m….there’s lots of time to do stuff. Things comes into the house as shares … there are the activities of house-holding… play… …oh…draw… sew… look at art… send off the last Circle 8 drawing book… Draw… and draw… and it isn’t even summer yet…ahhhh.
I haven’t been in the studio much…Italy, 4th of July, grandbaby….so today I sort of sunk in for a while. It’s cool out there in the studio (temperature wise, I mean) totally shaded by a walnut tree and a bay tree intertwined. As is my habit, I try to find some past work to look […]
Oh bliss…this is it, don’t you think? Berries… pie and birthdays dinners with neighbors (and here R had to borrow Evan’s garden gloves to open the champagne…) drives to the beach… More dinners… Thanks for the evening, you guys! heading home with a view of the Bay… …and GUYS…it isn’t even the 4th yet!
Wow…busy week around here…but kind of a miscellaneous week to make a narrative out of… It WAS a week with ART in it though…Elizabeth, Alex and I spent two days in Corrie’s summer studio (a generous offer on Corrie’s part)…she the first artist in residence whereby the CCC gallery is turned into a big studio […]
Summer. Got to try to live in the moment, so the narrative suffers. Here’s a digested version of what’s been happening in the far west: The beach. A week. So hot in the valley most all the beach views are misty and cool… and the sunsets were, well, muted, let’s just say… There was outside […]
Coffee on the deck this morning looking down into the phlox, making me happy to be in this garden, but ESPECIALLY to have such a lovely summer day. We took a bike ride to Minto Island, where last year about this time we were picking Queen Ann’s lace for the wedding! But today…we just had […]
SUMMER!!!! So after visiting the MIG fruit and veg stand Saturday (and getting lunch, of course) I got up this morning with the urge for more blueberry chutney. I made some at the beach on the fourth and we’ve eaten it all already…yum. I got the recipe out of the “new” (2012) Oregonian cookbook (“The […]
