I love the beginning of a new year

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

A Sad Day

A sad day today...our Jack is gone. He was the sweetest, most big hearted dog I've known and I'll miss him dearly. He had a very peaceful passing with his tail wagging until the very end. Good boy!

Being Quiet

Reading this....

(I love Jane's distinction between domesticity and domestication)

 ...inspired me to crochet this small rug

and make this my cozy quiet place.

Ready for Camp!

I'm taking a break from August Break since I've been getting ready to leave for camp this week. And what trip to camp would be complete without some friendship bracelets and camp journals? I can't wait for the fun to begin!

August Break Day 13 - My Guilty Pleasure

Tilamook Oregon Strawberry Ice Cream

August Break Day 12 - On the Table

This is our big old table that sits between the kitchen and the living room. I love that Sal and Peppy look like they're peeking out of the tray. If you look at the window ledge between the chair back you can see a few of Q's collection of old Santas....they stay out all year long. This past year I gave the table top a coating of chalkboard paint. When everyone's together we have a great time drawing all over it!
