Yes! That is me this week.
Miss Butterfly Brain! (“So what else is new?” you say)

So Tuesday morning I grabbed my sketchbook, (yes, you know me, it’s an early 1900 music book), and caught up.

My grandfather and I used to keep a vigil every spring to see the first swallow of the season. That was one of our special rituals I remember. I put these little guys on the In The Merry Month of May song.

With Kerstie, Adam and our little girls; a long weekend round up

Little girls in the morning! That’s always so wonderful for me. There’s nothing like the pitter patter of little feet, and believe me, with our three it really is nothing like pitter patter. It’s more like a mini elephant stampede. Lol, but we love…

It’s a bank holiday weekend here and I’ve been dying to get away for a few days, and I wanted to visit my daughter Kerstin, but I also wanted to spend some time at my cabin. I decided to take the very long way…
