This day.

Woke up with a little bit of a sore throat. Feel great, however. Strained my oatstraw infusion. Took a fashion stump photo.

OK, so I took two pictures.

Stopped and filled up with gas. I have to drive to work today. Sat in a traffic jam because of traffic accidents. Sang really loud to my favorite Bonnie Raitt songs. I saw several accidents in this heavy fog we have today. One of them was an overturned tractor trailer.

I arrived to work safely, thank goodness. The fog is so thick!

Lunch was a salad in the cafe. With bread. Ugh. I know I should not cheat, but they do have the best bread.

Mixed greens. Garbanzo beans. Black olives. Broccoli. Cranberries. Ranch dressing.

I made it through the day. And went home.

Now it’s time to package up Etsy orders!

Enjoy this day!


A Few Things

Just dropping in with a few lines. Looking forward to live music tonight, a surprise from my sweetie! Off work. All the birdbaths are all scrubbed clean and filled. The hummingbirds have fresh food. The tomatoes from the garden are fine. I continue to work on closing down the shop and transitioning to a private studio. I think a Friday nap may be in order. Or wait…I have time to go shopping! The Steelbender is prepping for a lesson anyway.

Oh, and I am still working on family history.  Pictured is one of my McNeill ancestors: Thomas McNeill born in 1849, my great-great-grandfather.  His wife was Martha Jane. ❤

Roma tomatoes from the container garden.
Love from Mars.
I love the little Bambies that come around.
Sweet planter in the Etsy shop.

Enjoy this day!

Sigrid Olsen Studio

I fell in love with this Sigrid Olsen Studio dress I found while shopping in Virginia. I will see how it holds up to washing and wearing.


By the way, I filled up before leaving Virginia.

Local NC prices are about 25 cents more a gallon.

Just a couple more things…

I came home from work to some sweet white roses from my dear sweetheart.

Enjoy this day!
