- Walk on

Originally posted in On the Trail

I've always preferred strolling to power walking, and now my osteoporosis diagnosis gives me the perfect excuse to go slow. The truth is you see a lot more that way, whether you're on a beach or a roadside.

I'm hoping that today marks the first of many such strolls, to be made with trusty iPhone at hand to capture whatever strikes my fancy. Unfortunately, I missed the opportunity to capture three turkeys running ... they were too fast for me.  But I did find a beautiful turkey feather, along with some grasses for my windowsill collection and a new (to me) wildflower that will hopefully survive a move into our garden.

- Motivated

Originally posted in On the Trail

On New Year's Day I wrote a one-word resolution: "Create."

Now I find myself with the time to do just that. Already underway is the embellishment of a linen top I bought last fall.

And the moth-balled project to hang a series of collages over the "fireplace" has been resurrected.

Of course, Jackson and Griffin have been motivation in more ways than one, giving my old sewing machine a workout.

And it feels great to be blogging again ...

Cholla cactus transplanted on the west side of the house last year.  It is a fast growing cactus that seems happy where it is!
