Summertime Fun and Flowers


Coreopsis Creme Brulee from our garden
I have not been blogging much this summer. Getaway vacations and the nearby pool have been happily taking up most of my time. I am grateful and happy about the way things are moving along.

I want to continue this summer fun. I will still read blogs, however, I think I will continue my summertime break, and not post on my blog, unless the muse on my shoulder insists. : )
I will see you 'round the bend. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Peacefully,
Kathleen

  6. i am so with you ...
    and with everyone's comments ...
    do take the time you need to relax and recharge ...
    i have been so out of the loop for so long, doing a feeble hit and miss of things, it kinda makes me numb ...
    but like a warm blanket, this community is always here and ready to pull you in and make you feel so good time and time again ...
    take good care of you ~

  10. Between the driving my Miss Daisy to and from swim practice, cheering at swim meets, seeking our colleges for our soon to be seniors, finishing art, starting art, picking tomatoes, eggplants and apples (making applesauce) - and blogging...I fall into bed early and wake up early for another exciting day. I love it all!
    Enjoy it all, breaks, flowers, gardening, dips in the pool and blogging too.

  22. Thanks for stopping by. I always think of you this time of year when my flowers start to get tired. Sigh. BTW...spoke to Louie this week. He's doing well.
