could it be?

After much coming and going, could it be that I now have new tenants? 


happy b-day

it has become routine for people in the civilized world to pass the age of 40, 
sometimes more than once."  ~Dave Barry

An Irish Blessing
"May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!"

all gone . . . .

I was looking for my favorite Irish butter today to go along with all the traditional fixings and there was none to be had. Leaving the store I spotted these fresh tulips. They are grown by a family in Virginia - so, I was thinking about our Irish ancestors that traveled down thru the Shenandoah Valley and thought these would be appropriate . . . Erin Go Braless


open house today! (fcp)

Apartment for rent. Cozy abode for two,
 Great location for starting a family!
 Nice view, shelter from inclement weather,
 Accompanying ledge/deck for entertaining or learning to fly.
 Must be accepting of nosy landlord with camera.
 No cats allowed. 
Every spring is the only spring ~
 a perpetual astonishment. 
 ~Ellis Peters


blues . . .

I do love those grays . . looks like we were in the same neighborhood?


grays (fcp)

I never appreciated gray days until I started to paint, but now I know neutrals make colors really pop. But then you have always embraced those muted shades, haven't you? I'm just slow to get it, I guess.
