“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


august break day 15: it will look different the next time you see it

2 of my mother's many tables.

i've had the green one since my father died and she moved from the big house to the not so big one.  this other, the dark one, is one that stood inside the front door of that smaller place, one that i kept after her death, and it is about to change, and it is about to change because i have changed, am changing, always and forever, amen and namaste.  i am a secret i will tell you later.

time for whimsy.  let the games begin.

august break day 15


inside the front door - a straight from the camera iphone picture.
the floor needs sweeping and there are no doubt spiders in the corner if you look closely. 



  1. i am a secret i will tell you later.

    that's just the best. and yes, let the games begin, i can't wait to see the result!

  2. What a great way to remember, yet move forward. Can't wait to see how they look when you're done!

  3. like Kelly said, the secret to come IS the best!. I didn't see any spiders, but my eyes immediately fell on the shoes, and left me wondering if you tossed them that way OR how you took them off to that position? I resist change, so am pleased you are able to manage this difficult feat !
    in my fondest, tilda

    1. hahaha! me and shoes! i kick them off when i walk in the door and they get scattered about, this way & that. i am awful! this pair just got squooshed between table legs and those concrete ball thingies. :)

  4. I've got the BEST thing ever for spiders!
    It is a long rod with a trigger at one end and long brush bristles at the other.... when you pull the trigger, the bristles open (this is where you aim it at the spider, or any bug really) and then you release the trigger and the bristles gently close in around the critter... take outside, pull trigger to open, and spider runs for his life.
    No harm done.
    No getting close to spider.
    Was the best 11 bucks ever spent.


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
