first things first...
my creative juices have been waning for awhile
writing has taken a back seat for now
my energy is otherwise engaged in reading and knitting
There have been some moody moments, thinking about and remembering mom.
Yesterday I bought a latte and sat on the beach
where my sister and I spread mom's ashes.
It was a beautiful afternoon,
the seas gently rippled
glistening in the bright sunshine.
Waters ebb and flow...
a white lab comes by for a pat
its owner follows ~ apolgizes for the intrusion
not bothered at all by the dog
I continue to sit and savour the latte
thinking how close I feel to mom
calmed by the lapping of the waves
a positive energy has returned.
A pretty pink
pop of colour
I have been indulging in a wee bit of retail therapy...
but a few things that caught my eye.
Emma Bridgewater Black Toast pattern is a favourite of mine...
I found these wee picnic pieces at The Bungalow on Estevan Avenue.
Too cute to pass up on and fit perfectly in my small insulated picnic tote.
Lands' End packable down jacket
it will keep the chill away on my winter walks.
New black napkins
white mini pumpkins
for the table
We are hosting a dinner party
I'll post on the menu and the table settings in a future post.
Our neighbours' cat napping in our garden in a patch of sunshine.
There are two cats, each look identical, so I can never tell them apart.
I didn't mean to disturb its slumber
the ragdoll cats that live across the street are so friendly.
Time for a stretch on the gravel drive...
Time for me to get back to my dinner party prep...
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read The Humble Bungalow Blog.
