November miracle

It’s November 22nd and gez what a year it has been. We are all trying to find a little hope and peace in the middle of so much suffering. I have been growing a container garden for a couple years now. It’s better for my back and knees at this age. We have had a few frosts this year. The days have been unseasonably warm and these flowers I planted have been thinking about blooming for awhile. Today when I went out at noon to look around this little flower had opened up. How sweet is that?

This sweet little flower is in the same container as the parsley I planted. A few other flowers are thinking of opening up too. Parsley does well in cold weather and frosts but I am so surprised with these flowers. It makes my heart sing with joy! ❤

That’s all ! I wanted to share this with you! You never know what little miracle will come to show you a little joy in life. To remind you it’s all okay even when everything is so uncertain. To be honest uncertainty is part of everyday life.

Be safe, kind and keep peace in your heart!

Love ❤

It’s a beautiful morning!

It’s Sunday morning and all is well around our home. We spent some time in the garden before it gets to hot. I have been planting a fall garden and it’s growing good. The mornings have been so nice and cool. It’s refreshing when fall arrives. The plants are all happy. River is getting to know the bunnies in our yard.

We love getting up with the sun and spending time outside. With fall here and the days getting shorter we will need to change some things but to us it’s important to get out and play outside. When we are done we get busy with beading and making leather bags.

The pictures tell the story. I am grateful for my life. There are many things to be grateful for. The times we are in are pretty weird but all in all you just have to do the best you can and find joy where you can.

Love and peace to you all, be well! 🙂 ❤

Good morning friends! I hope this blog post finds you well and doing the best you can through these days of uncertainty.

We are doing well here at our home in Cornville, AZ. We have been making leather and beadworks and I have been playing in my garden, mostly in the mornings because it is so very hot. River (our fur baby) and I play ball when it’s early morning and the heat hasn’t set in yet.

River is a real joy for us ! ❤ So grateful he is here with us. He has been part of our family about a year now. What a sweet boy! We love him so much! ❤

Refresh on a new day

It’s always wonderful when spring rolls around. Warmer weather , starting the garden, seeing new flowers spring up and perennial plants come back to life. This year has been a bit different and everyone is doing their best to try and get used to this new normal. I would say trying to wrap our minds around what none of us have experienced. So one day at a time, knowing nothing in life is permanent and never has been. Another change, and for now the air is better where it has not been in a very long time. It’s quiet outside too. Rolling with change is better for you than fighting against it. Although I have to say going to town is a bit weird now. John and I are a couple of home bodies anyway only going when we need something. We are making our art and planting our garden and doing pretty much what we always do but going to town for groceries much less.

Thank god for our beads and leather work art. We have something to create everyday.

This small Iris is the first flower this year. It’s my favorite color (purple). But I love all the details in this beauty.

spring flowers

Next our spring daffodils bloomed. They are so pretty. This is my birth month flower.

River

This is our little River. He has been in our family since last August. He loves his yard and playing ball. We have a fenced in back and front yard on our acre of ground, where he is on squirrel and lizard patrol. He lets them know he is the boss. What a sweetheart he is! 🙂

Blessings to all of you going forward. May you have comfort , good health and much love and light around you always!
