It’s June but I’m not sure Mother Nature got the memo

It’s June but the last two days have been in the low 60s and upper 50s, Wisconsin weather gotta love it!  The cool air, rain drizzle, and fog over the lake puts me in a fall frame of mind.  I start thinking about warm chunky cable knit sweaters, leggings, boots, hot drinks, a good book, and a relaxing place to sit.

Comfy rain clothes


Sweater, Leggings, Boots, Bag

This outfit looks so comfy but I hope I don’t need to bother with heavy clothing for a couple of months.  Summer where are you??

PS. I apologize for the poor looking fashion board, I didn’t have my laptop with Photoshop with me


Summer Rain Fall

Rain on Rose

Lightly the rain covers the leaves, grass, roses, sidewalk, and road.  The gentle breezy brings the fresh moist air into my window.  Everything outside is being cleansed by the cool water as my spirit is being up lifted by the smell and calming sound of the rain drops.

Quick note…. writing more

Just a quick note, recently I’ve been writing more and I hope to have some of it posted on here soon.  There’s one short writing that I can’t wait to post but I have to make sure the timing it right.  It seems with the season of summer ending and fall inching itself back in my creativity levels soar.  Just the thought that soon the trees will be ablaze in bright oranges, reds and yellows make me want to get out my sketch pad, canvas, paints and cameras and hit the roads in look for the perfect or imperfect images.  Fall, Autumn the season of cool weather but warm hugging sweaters and beautiful landscapes.

So like I said I hope to start posting again, there will be no pattern to the madness just creative flow.  And if anyone has some good pointers on how to use Photoshop to create quote pictures, please let me know, I’ve been fighting with it!

Enjoy the weekend!

Summer Break?

Well, it seems I’ve taken a summer break from the blog.  With all of the holidays and family events seeming to happen at the same time I sadly forgot to blog!  Summer is really an active time around here.  There are festivals, farmer’s markets, and music just about every day.  We seem to attempt to fit 365 days of fun outside in just 3 or 4 months.

So if it is nice outside or even raining, go and enjoy it!

No inspiration

Recently, I haven’t been inspired to post anything and I’ve been a bit busy. The weather has gone from nice to cold too many times to count. The next month is jus filled to the top with family things. The only time I have to relax is the hour I work out a day and watch a recorded reality show. Otherwise it’s crazy and the days are only going to get more packed with hopefully warm weather, festivals, music in the park, pool time, on and on. But that’s ok, it keeps life going. I just have to remember to say No sometimes and make time for myself.
