happy place

this carnival was set up in a mall parking lot.
even though it was totally empty, it didn't feel deserted like i suppose it could have...
instead, it felt like it was readying itself for an onslaught of happy kids making memories...

i was the only one there, i wandered all over and fell in love with the little happy place :)

hummingbird :)

i spent $3.99 on a plastic hummingbird feeder two days ago.
i hung it where i could see it easily from my couch. 
this morning, my $4 investment paid off :)

post time...

i don't know what happens, but every year, i get to a point where i can't post stuff.
not words.  not pictures.

i feel bad about it, like i am letting myself down.
i resort to nosing around facebook and pinterest...
no disrespect intended, but i feel like i am living on junk food instead of real meals.
when this posting block comes on me, i can barely read blogs. when i do read them, i feel angst, constant angst, like i could have done more...
should have done more...

the good news is i now know this too shall pass.
the bad news is that i don't know when and i don't like the wait.
and also, i end up with a million photos i never get posted.

don't know if i am on the other side of this dry spell yet, but i sure hope so.

i have been busy, despite seemingly being missing in action.
we have officially moved to the cape cod house.   all eleven cats are finally here too.
the condo in CT is staged and on the market.
we are moving forward :)

my sister and i did an art show in hyannis in june. well, really not a show, more like a mini-store...
this was a HUGE deal to me.  it was 3 days long, but took months to get ready.
i learned a lot about what goes into putting yourself out there.
it was gratifying and humbling, all at the same time.   overall, it was a fabulous experience.  we get to do it again in september, that time for a whole week.  luckily, i am almost all prepared for that one already :)

i painted the cape house.  i started a photography class with Kim Klassen. i made new friends, re-connected with some old friends, worked on the garden, read some books, took a million peace-out pictures rides and had a wonderful few months. 
but i have missed my blog friends, and the world on flickr. 

i believe it might be post time...

a few random pics from during the dry spell...
