Kick off Fall with a Party

I like to celebrate things, including the start of a new season. And Fall begins tomorrow.

The Queen’s Full Moon…From a Fairy of the East Coast to Bring Some Fun When a Storm’s A’Coming

Morning note included Science Experiment Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong; it actually is harder to hold a strength pose while someone’s yelling obscene insults, even if it’s just Nicki Minaj artistically in a song. (Glad for the wall 😊)But I can still practice seated poses and relaxation in the meanwhile, ‘tho other songs of hers…… Continue reading The Queen’s Full Moon…From a Fairy of the East Coast to Bring Some Fun When a Storm’s A’Coming

Yesterday’s middle post, ‘Clouds and a Light Drizzle…’ linked at the end, has now been fixed to show featured image.

Another Word on Another Herb, and More

I have aimed to not write too many posts in one day for readers’ enjoyment, but will write a second if it’s a sort of timely occasion like this. And I’ll tell myself, ‘Put the blog down’ and I do. ☺️ I was glad when Dan came home today and mentioned he’d not gone to…… Continue reading Another Word on Another Herb, and More

Off and On Its Way, The Faery Queene With Two Hemingways

Notes added on 8/17 Along with The Faery Queene Book I by Edmund Spenser I’d fully read, I decided to return For Whom The Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway partly read because it is a great book with depth I’d found most noticeably, but I’d also veered off events and newly introduced characters awhile. I…… Continue reading Off and On Its Way, The Faery Queene With Two Hemingways

A Morning So New

Here in my new spot to sit with tea in the living room on a morning with sun—tilt the chair beside the window, set down the cup upon the tea towel on the side table and be in the light. It’s a very sleepy morning, but a beautiful one anyway. The sky, how it looked…… Continue reading A Morning So New

A Photo Walk Inside

And the rest for readers will begin now… Hi and welcome 😊🙏. A saltwater floral candle lit on the mantle, a ‘vintage’ Target purchase—most candles last a long time as I don’t light mine so long that it destroys the senses when you were truly just hoping for some soothing relaxation. Subtly beach antique without…… Continue reading A Photo Walk Inside

I’ve Failed in My Nature Studies But I Don’t Give Up

My new basil plant. The first one I’d gotten early this summer toppled over as soon as I’d unwrapped it. This new one was bright green and standing tall on Monday when I happily unwrapped it at home, watered it with cool water, and it collapsed instantly. (Heard it was temperature shock.) This morning I…… Continue reading I’ve Failed in My Nature Studies But I Don’t Give Up

Aug. 4, ‘21 This is a very rich true story and no more length will be added to the blog for a little while.

The First Blush of Dawn

I woke and opened my eyes to see this blush of dawn today and smiled warmly. And then the sun and sky through the pines before early morning tea.

The little green one hundred year old book on the right is the book I’ve just read last and reviewed recently on this blog, The Faery Queene I by Edmund Spenser.

It’s been a nice afternoon moment of rest with a cup of rose tea & reaching the end of this book today… An epic poem written in the 1500s by the English author Edmund Spenser which contains a nice blend of sometimes ‘opposing’ beliefs or folk cultures.

The eighteen poems I’d written since April I’ve found complete as of last night and I can continue submitting to magazines all of them now as I write more for my next book.
