The Wheel Turns Again

The Solstice is almost over, we are all still here, and the days will be getting longer. I may or may not see you again before the New Year, as Family Time is heading into high gear.  I want to wish all my blog friends a wonderful Holiday Season, filled with love and laughter. Let the Celebrations begin!

Good Vibrations

The very first night I listened to his radio show, I believed. He was creating a new universe with his voice.
“You can be anything you want to be” he said. “Make space in your world for dreams.”
            I listened to every last word, and suddenly wanted to release everything that kept me from flying.
That's my contribution for this weeks Friday Flash 55. You can find links to more at the home of the amazing G-Man. Brace yourself for what you'll find there.

If You Need A Present

for someone on your list or for yourself, you might want to check out Cathy Kiffney's Studio, on Etsy. I came across her yesterday, when I was cruising around Etsy, looking for bunny-stuff. (You do that, too. Don't pretend you don't. All of us Bunny People do that. Right?)

Cathy is from North Carolina, and in her shop she sells some art prints, and lots of gorgeous ceramics. Some of the bowls,, plates, and wall hangings have birds, shoes (for the shoe-aholic), and flowers. But a bunch of them have BUNNIES! Here are a few that caught my eye,

First, in neutral colors.

Next, one that would look good in the redecorated room that used to be the Oldest's room. Love the Chinese Lanterns. At least, that's what they look like to me.

Finally, my favorite. I can't resist the blue and green, and you know I'm a pushover for a red rabbit!
Cathy just finished having a give-away on Facebook, but I didn't get her e-mail until too late. But maybe she'll have another in the future. For now, hop on over, and check out her other pieces. Maybe a rabbit will follow you home....

Garden Assistant

Today was a beautiful day, one of the last few we will have as winter sets in. I decided to spend it working in the garden, doing some clean-up.  After I had been working for a while, a helper showed up.

Yes, it was the Neighborhood Lion, on his daily rounds. He claimed my weed bucket, but to be honest, he didn't really help much with the weeding.

He also stopped to smell the flowers, before stalking off.

He may or may not have been headed for the catnip. I'm not telling.

We are supposed to have one more good day before the cold rolls back in. I'll be out in the garden again tomorrow, trying to get the rest of the clean-up work done. And after that, it will be time to pull out the Christmas decorations. There's always too much to do this time of year, isn't there?
