The most creative thing I've done all week is paint my toenails blue. I did it a couple of days ago. I'm noticing from the picture that I already have a chip on my big toe. From the top of my towering 5'2" frame, I can not see this chip. They look alot better from my vantage point. Oh, well. You'll notice that I've only photographed one of my feet. My other big toe had a mean ingrown toenail. I attacked it with a wee bit of aggression. The result is a toe that looks like it was pedicured by a lawn mower blade. I don't want such a graphic image to be burned into your retina for life, so I won't show you. By the way, do you like my sandal tan?
I think the reason for my inability to create, besides that fact that I have been crazy busy with life, is that I have been distracted by the beauty that comes with summer. Look at this lovely little girl that is growing in my flower bed.
I hope this doodle that I finished a couple of weeks ago will remind me of her when summer days are gone (Ewww... I'm going to banish that thought and live in the now!). We are having a warm, beautiful summer in Montana. I know that fall is just around the corner, but I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet. I love summer!
Speaking of summer (and other seasons)... My mom always reminds me that there is a season for everything. I sometimes express apprehensions about my girls growing up and taking on the world. Mom gently reminds me that when the season for them to do something arrives, I will be ready. Well, my oldest daughter, Hailey, got her driver's lisence last Friday. Guess what? I was ready. I felt a teeny-weeny bit sad that a chapter in her life had closed, but a new chapter has started. She is ready, and so am I. We are both feeling a sense of freedom. I've put her safety, and that of her passengers, in the hands of the Lord. It's all good.
Enjoying summer days,
P.S. Clear back on July 24, Gemma at the Dancin' Puffin gave me a lovely blog award. I have neglected to mention it or thank her. My apologies. I am flattered. Gemma lives in the United Kingdom. She cooks, knits, stitches fun things, and has the cutest chicks and chickens with the best names ever. There's Lavender Leigh, Petunia Paisley, Jimmy...what am I telling you all this for? Go check it out!
Editor's Note: License? lisence? liscence? Do you have a word that you habitually spell wrong? I have several. License is one of them! One of my children pointed out that I spelled it incorrectly. Oh, the shame...LOL!
