You get the idea, right??
I took my MOTHER to the doctor's and then to get her lab drawn, and then to the grocery store.
Sometimes I feel like her daughter, but WAY more often, I feel like her mother.
Did I mention that she has referred to me as her "mother" in conversations???
Good grief. You can't ever anticipate this stuff. It just happens.
While I lust over the blog photos of GREENERY way south of here, I am not unhappy with the brown April of the northeast. It is so much better than the winter we just left behind.
Today there was sun and clouds, and it was warm enough for a light jacket.
After lunch, I went outside and raked the labyrinth.
There were bits of leaves all over it. While I was raking, I was thinking how happy I am that my grandchildren are going to grow up and think it is perfectly normal to have a labyrinth in your back yard.
How cool is that???
This is Louise. She belongs to my next door neighbor, and they just popped over to say hello.
I have a lot planned outside the studio this year. For the last 6 years, I have worked 24/7, or pretty darn close to it, to make this studio a success. And you know what, it is a success, on many levels.
The bills get paid, the house gets maintained, and heated, and loved. The cats have a home where they are loved. I get to weave here and dream and create and dream some more.
Crazy As A Loom has made it, in my humble opinion. I have shelves piled high with stock, my custom orders are all timely.
So this year, at last, I am going to spend some time doing the things outside that I have wanted to do from the beginning. I have done a few things every year, but I have never really given it my best. The hedgerow is still all grown up and tangled. The whole yard needs attention.
Every morning is a chance to do it all over again, maybe a little different, maybe better.
Just one more thing I am grateful for.
