Less than a week ago I was in flip flops…today it’s been snowing all day and I’m back to wearing Uggs.
Happy Adoption Anniversary to Reo who joined our family one year ago! Her sweet disposition, boundless energy and silly antics have brought us laughter, happiness and pure love. I’m forever grateful to the family who fostered her as a feral rescue and let me become her mom.
For many years Spence and I enjoyed Scallops Chambord on New Years Eve with a chilled bottle of Prosecco, a roaring fire and a great movie. We looked forward to this decadent meal with the anticipation of kids on Christmas morning.
That changed after I lost Spence in 2017. I put the tradition on pause, it felt too sad to continue it. I hoped I’d feel differently one day and this year I did. The passage of time, gratitude for good health and so many blessings in my life allowed me to embrace our tradition once again. It was fabulous!
I’m adding a link to the recipe from an earlier post in case you’re inspired to try my recipe https://spencesgirl.com/2015/12/31/scallops-chambord/ and I wish you all a Happy New Year!
In a few hours I mark my 65th birthday, the second during the pandemic. I saw this quote today and it resonated.
My weird, fun, twisty, happy and quirky life in a sentence.
My name is Reo and my mom helped me with this blog post, she’s best kitten mom ever.
For a few hours on sunny afternoons, my dining room window showers rainbows across the floor and walls. Today I took my new kitten Reo into the dining room to show her. She proceeded to strike a few poses with the rainbows on her fur…
At times when I’m painting tiles images emerge and I’ve titled these tiles accordingly.
As I share my tile photos via social media, I don’t always include my “vision”. As a result, in comments I learn what others see – and that’s fun. Other interpretations are fascinating to me and often I begin to see what they see. Like life, it’s good to be open to another’s perspective.
