Go Back To Glass

Every time I throw away a plastic water bottle I get irritated at the mounting size of my garbage.  Ok recycle...sure, whatever....what about the way we used to do it?  Glass Bottles!  One blogger described them as heavy and, oh my goodness, you have to return them.  Such an inconvenience?  Here are a few for the picture books..


Personally, I would just love to have some of  these!

These can be found on my favorite site, Etsy. HERE!

House De-Cora

Well, the long awaited arrival of my first granddaughter's first birthday has come and gone and now I'm left with a house of newly cleaned toys to put away.  So I'm busying myself with my house de-cora!!  (sigh)  We had a lovely lovely time together and being with family is just soooooo important to living life to the fullest!

Sunday Dinner

So funny how we play mind games with ourself, we can enjoy our selfmade distractions, we can "live our own life", do our "thing", seek "fulfillment", live in the "moment","find ourself",  ...etc.  But there is nothing in this world like being with your family.  When we live too close we take each other for granted...but too far and we pine away at for all the times we miss being together.

My faraway daughter....(too far)....wanting to come back home....wrote me this "choke back the tears" blurb from her poetic mind...

here's what i know:

i want to have sunday dinner with all of you...
to create and learn with/from you
to come over without feeling like the clock is ticking...
to enjoy Ohio in the fall
pick up apples at rouster's
make pies
cora to grow up knowing who her family is...her roots
so much more...but enough for now beautifully said!
