Up ahead...


warmer skies.  I got married 16 years ago today.  Memorial Day weekend feels like the start of summer  (which I look forward to each year) & holds a special place in my heart.

Gomie- that's what I call him also holds a big piece of my heart.

I feel lucky to have this good human by my side.  Together we're a stronger.

Fully Vaccinated!


Thank goodness for smart scientist– so very grateful!  Looks are nice but, intelligence is where it's at. (that doesn't fade)  Guess it's time for this introvert to head back out into the wild.  My first stop will be the plant nursery- I skipped the whole deal last spring & have been looking forward to filling my car with an array of colorful things I'll probably end up killing over the course of the summer. (pretty sure I over water)

What's the buzz?


Brood X cicadas are making a buzz again! Millions of them come up from below ground every 17 years. (and it's that time again) They crawl out, head to the tree tops & buzz loudly. (that’s their mating call) The female legs eggs and as the eggs hatch the adult males and females die. The young insects (called nymphs) fall to the ground and dig down to reemerge as an adult to start the cycle all over again in 17 years. It's all very dramatic!

Bonus: They are well mannered & don’t sting or bite. (always a plus)

 Green tea!  Forever a fan of bright, bold color.
