Creative Storms

Weather has been a roller coaster ride and after a lineup of storms that rolled through (luckily none that were extreme) we are now graced with sun and temps in the 80’s. I am not certain I am ready for summer quite yet and luckily we have another cold front moving into our area on…

Storm Season…

It is Spring and in Oklahoma springtime heralds the beginning of severe weather season. This means that I might not be around as much. It is difficult to Blog with storms causing power outages and interference with wi-fi connection (in my case satellite because I live in the boondocks). I had a very creative week…

Severe Weather Season

Is upon us and that means I won’t be as active for the next month. The volatile springtime weather can make it difficult to post on a regular basis due to power outages and lost satellite signals interrupting cellular and internet connections. I will post when I can. In the meantime, Stay safe, and create…

Free Time…

It is another beautiful day and oddly Lily is not asking to go on a walk. She is in her yard lounging on a cool-a-roo listening to birdsong. The cats are in the catio bird watching, they were a rowdy bunch last night so the fact that everyone is so sedate today is not a…

Spring Inspiration

March has been a bust, creatively speaking, I had good intentions but somehow the month has almost passed me by and I have nothing to show for it. I didn’t set a creative theme for March and I thought that I would finish projects that were left unfinished from last month and that was a…

Signs of Spring

Lily and I took a walk around the 2.5 acre wood this afternoon. It was wonderfully sunny, perfect in temperature and blissfully calm (no gusty winds). I don’t know who enjoyed the walk more? I enjoyed it because I have had invalid status for the past week or so after a slapstick comedy trip over…

Monday Mosaic: Birds, Bitter Cold and Coffee

We have known for awhile that another Artic Blast was coming and that this one would be the coldest one yet and it didn’t let us down. I actually prefer cold weather but I prefer that it not be so cold that I have to forego sleep just to make sure the house doesn’t burn…

FebCC Challenges Due…

It is that time again; time to post our February Creative Challenges and thankfully, this week was better than last. It is still cold outside (snow and ice are joining the party) and the entire household has had the sniffles. Lily chow slipped on the ice the other day and pulled a muscle and I…

Monday Mosaic: Scenes from the 2.5 acre wood

Last week was a bust on my end of the creative challenge and I am hoping that I can get myself back on track. It is incredibly windy here today which means there is cedar pollen blowing about and I have a bit of a spacey, balloon head feeling going on. It could be allergies,…

Mini Challenge #3 is Due…

and sadly, I have nothing to share. It was one of those weeks. I met with a couple of people on Monday that had lost cats that resembled the one that has been living under my porch the past few weeks. Sadly, he was none of the missing pets and is still living under the…

Go! FebCC mini #3…

starts…NOW! Get those creative juices flowing. Make, Bake, Create something. Think outside the box or re-visit something you used to love to do. Use what you have available, no need to buy something new. Last year, before Sus and I left India to come back home, I had decided I wanted less stuff cluttering up…

Saturday: FebCC mini #2

I was quiet this week, which actually had nothing to do with the FebCC or Valentine’s Day. It had everything to do with the 3 days of gloriously Spring like weather we had, unfortunately the grey, cold days of winter have returned. This week I made something quick and easy…and used up some scrap yarn…
