Lemony Goodness!

I had such a lovely birthday Zoom with a dear friend on Friday. She and I graduated together, and her birthday was yesterday! 
Oh my goodness! She gave me the most perfect little table for the porch.... I grabbed it for the kitchen first because we are having fierce storms right now... she chose beautiful, cheerful lemon themed dishes and decor to go along with it... I love it! 
Keep an eye on the sky if you are in the path of these storm cells. Stay safe!

Move Along!

Well, finally got rid of the monitor and got a super report! I decided to rearrange the kitchen.  Funny, when I moved in with Mom after my dad passed away, all I could think about was the dream of rearranging EVERYTHING. I love to change things up... 
Then after this house was all ours (my son's and mine), I really moved everything, even switching the purpose of every room and making some structural changes.... we doubled the size of the kitchen and moved the eating area....
So gradually.... incrementally.... some things are migrating back to the way Mom and Dad had it. And each time I set things in their sacred space (for my mother detested rearranging anything), I hear an unmistakable magnetic synching with the chi of this house... plus my son, a little chip off his grandparents' block, says, "Wow! The ____ is back where it BELONGS!"
So the kitchen is different... I have made sort of an office in the dining nook. Naturally the cat is ticked off. Her window seat has been changed. For now the table is in the opposite end...  it's ok.... I can always move it back... 

Yes.... I still have this baby pink tree up.... I turn it on just because I can! I had envisioned ornaments for all seasons, but I just have the pastel multicolor lights and rose gold balls. I have it powered on by Miss Alexa and a voice operated smart plug.  "Merry Christmas" illuminates while "Silent Night" stops the action.. sometimes she gets confused and plays Christmas music! What an invention... after 36 years of teaching, I very rarely lose my temper.... but I have a short fuse with talking tech... I get flustered with her at times and with those recordings that want " to learn about my problems" when all I want to do is speak with a representative! 

When we first bought Alexa I asked her how many frogs were in the world and she answered a huge number of "frogses." I laughed at her and yelled out that she was stupid! Later and to this day if I ask her how many frogs, she says, "I am still learning about frogs." I guess I got a sensitive model... 
I finished 48 Halloween cards for myself and a huge journal and several packs of cards and notes... I just need to nail down sleeping at night.... it is currently 2:45 a.m.

Have a great week! I will be 67 in 6 days!

May Just Disappeared!

Been really fine this month... I just have not done anything extraordinary or noteworthy. Hope all of you are doing well. 

I have been making journals, cards,, and tags....and doing some cross stitch. 

Have a lovely June! My friends  came down for a lovely supper outside on the porch...
