September - approaching Fall!

Hello - time is definitely flying by. The weather today said there is a chance of a light frost out here tonight. We have plans to bring in the more tender of the house plants to protect them - such a quick ending to the summer season.

I have been very busy this last month - I've worked on clay and cloth and various house projects and life is good. Ted and I went for a walk tonight. It was the usual walk but with the purpose of taking some pictures of the corn fields with tassels for our grandson, Zachary. Zachary was with us for May and June and part of July and didn't get to see the full grown corn - so here they are Zachary - pictures of the tasseled corn! (And a few bonus pictures - especially of the "wild" asparagus plants that you and papa hunted for dinner. Ones that got away...)

A blue heron lives in the grassy area by the road where we walk, where the stream comes in. I never get tired of this walk.

Now earlier this month (while I was in the house working on a doll) Ted came in and told me to grab the camera and come outside. There in the sky over our house was a beautiful hot air balloon - and it isn't even the Cambridge Balloon Festival time! How lucky can we be?

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
