Hide and Go Seek

Yesterday, I trimmed the dead blooms off my rose bushes. Suddenly realizing that a bright green leaf sprouted legs, I found myself confronted by a katydid. These used to get into my parents’ house when I was a kid and disturb me with their sheer size. Now, I found it beautiful and decided to share the lovely image that an online conservation report borrowed from Mjlaff on Fickr. Happy gardening!

Hello Kitty

I have to admit to being a sucker for the cute Japanese phenomenon of Hello Kitty. As I type, there is a notebook on my desk featuring her little face. And there have been other items, as well, such as a Hello Kitty freezer pack for my lunch bag. Unfortunately, it finally sprung a leak.

Day seventeen. I feel like something is about to happen, for good or ill. The number seventeen must mean something.

Thursday Thirteen

I’ve needed to face a lot of stress at my day job lately that has me wondering if facing that place every day is worth the money.

Going With the Flow

Life has been very interesting lately, and I mean that in all the best ways. The timing, as I journey with other dear travelers along Julia Cameron’s Artist’s Way, can’t be a coincidence. Every day seems to bring a new sense of hope for a bright future. Granted, we never know when our time will be up, so I look forward to making the most of this newfound wellbeing.
