Let’s talk turkey

This turkey is so stinking cute. I needed to calm myself again yesterday so a walk around goodwill was a good idea. On Tues I went to the mall. I set out to get a new phone. My phone has been dodgy for months so I really needed a new one. I need to know…

Caliente!

The average nothing fancy 3/2 bedroom townhouse in our neighborhood goes for about 1.5 million dollars these days, and I swear not a single house that we have lived in on this peninsula has ever had air conditioning. We are right on the San Francisco Bay and 99% of the time it is not necessary…

Postcards from the edge

So I turned some of our vacation photos into a fabric pattern for a vintage postcard competition at Spoonflower.com.

Weight a minute, You did what?

I have not written in a while. Not sure why but I have been busy recording in my personal private journal and so I have not had the stamina…mentally to do this as well. I have been home most of the week. I have been at home most of the weekend. I did go to…

The vinyl is a holographic material that shimmers in a mother of pearl blue. I also printed a mandala and an elephant mandala….

Yesterday was the day to have a small get together with the family before the boy heads off to school. We moved it to where the people are because my niece had dance practice and this way we would still see her and my sister. Also, it was easier for the old folks to spend…

Circle of life…11 days and counting

The photo above was taken when I noticed this random tree trunk base as I was walking down the street today so I thought I would share. Today I decided to once again try a mindfulness women’s circle at the local Buddist prayer center. It was, to say the least….mmmm interesting. I am really not…
