The Days Fly By........

Past the middle of September already.  The time flys so fast.  It's been a beautiful autumn here.  A few leaves have fallen but they're only beginning to change color.

If you followed Deena Warner's Nestled in the Singing Woods or Can I Be Pretty in Pink I checked her blog always hoping that she's posted.  I found out that she died August 19th.  She fought a long and valiant fight with cancer since before I knew her in 1987.  God bless you, Deena,  may you have peace now.

About this time of the year I start thinking about Halloween decorations.  I think I like the thought and fun of Halloween more than Halloween night itself.  It's usually a fizzle as far as trick or treaters and along about dark I start getting the creeps.  My Puck will take care of that.

I love the sparkly lights and the pumpkins and some of the fun things - not the gorey.

How are you?  Did you have a good summer?  I really hope so.

Till next time.                   Diane

Three years gone.........

The best guy ever.  I love this picture.  We're in the mountains, our favorite place, and we're so happy.  I love you, Leonard.                                               Diane

Bad Start............

This is a picture of my buddy Noah and I this May.  This wasn't a bad start, he graduated from high school and he's off to the working world and junior college here in the fall.  He's a smart, nice, guy and he will go far.

The bad start was the first day of August.   -  I had a heart attack.  The heart surgeon did an angioplasty on me and I have more medicine added.  But I'm feeling good and trying to become my "old" self.

I didn't talk about it before because I didn't want to whine and need sympathy.  And besides, God spared me and I'm thankful to have my life back.

Hope you're doing well and just perking along like normal.    God bless you.                                              Diane

Every day I journal.  I want to be in my studio more but things take over.  But I journal.  I found when Leonard was sick that it was my sanctuary and my "place" to be when chaos sometimes seemed to be all around me.  
 I love it.  Sometimes I draw little things that have to do with the day, sometimes I glue in images that do.
 It started out as a legacy to my children but somewhere along the line that changed to my place to be.  If, when I'm gone, they get some joy from them, all the better.
Hope you have something you're as passionate about.  God bless you.  Diane

Finally..........! ! !

It was a celebration for me yesterday  (it doesn't take much).  My pink iris opened for the first time. 
I showed it to my lawn guy who has been avoiding it with the weed eater.  And my dear neighbor was also a guest at the celebration.  I've been trying to get one for 5 or 6 years.  When it opened I dedicated the first bloom to my little great granddaughter, Emerson.  Just seemed like a great idea. 
Hope you're having a beautiful day,

June........such a lovely month.....

Maybe it's because it's my birth month and also one of my daughters.  Maybe it's because everything is green and it rains a lot and each time seems to make the earth new.  Or maybe it's because the flowers and trees have been waiting all winter to burst open in all their glory.  Whatever it is, it's a wonderful month.  Hope you have a magical June.
