Toddler Lessons For The Imagination

IMG_2133

My blog may have been a bit silent for a few weeks. We have had a temporary situation of having our daughter-in-love and grandson staying with us so that we can look after them while she is dealing with the first trimester of pregnancy and major nausea. Dealing with that and taking care of an energetic two year old was a bit too much for her so they are staying with Dodi and Pa while dad works. Needless to say, our life looks a little different with them here.

Even though at first I was a bit stressed because my studio time was cut to almost non-existence, I’ve been embracing the wonder of seeing the world through his eyes. What an imagination he has! What curiosity!

His sharp eyes see every little detail that I may have missed as I briskly walk through my day with my mind on everything that I need to do. Tiny mushrooms become mouse umbrellas and acorn caps and a leaf set the table for a chipmunk’s breakfast.

IMG_2154Hopefully I am teaching him as much about wonder and creativity as he is teaching me. I hope he always sees me as the fun one who is willing to join in and experience his world. How blessed I am to have him and our granddaughter and a new little one on the way. My cup runneth over. :-)

Autumn Glimpses

The garden gave up a few morsels before frost. It’s sad to think it is done, but nice to have a break from figuring out what to do with never ending squash. I found the mushrooms growing by a straw bale. I didn’t know what they were so I got out my trusty mushroom field guide and tried to find them. Making a spore print is a crucial part of the identification. They had white spores, but I couldn’t figure out what they were, so I threw them out. They were very photogenic though. :-)

The sunrise is an never ending source of inspiration to me. Now that the sun is coming up later, I get to experience it more.

They early morning mists draped all of the spider webs with strings of pearls. It seemed as if every tree and blade of grass was decorated. It’s kind of scary though to think of how many spiders there are out there making all of those webs.

I couldn’t resist a little photo manipulation with the webs and some tree photos superimposed on each other. It reminds me of strings of party lights on an autumn evening.

My early morning walk turned into a collecting stroll. There is always something to pick up and admire if you only have eyes to see.

True Story

Living in the south is interesting.


I was shopping in Aldi one day with my cart filled full of mostly veggies and this tall and somewhat round guy in overalls stopped me and said, “Well honey you ain’t no bigger than a minute! That ain’t gonna fatten you up. How ’bout you and me take this here watermelon outside and break it open on a rock and eat the middle out!”

I guess that was his creative pick up line. I just laughed and politely declined.

I wonder if anyone has ever taken him up on that invitation.

Feels like summer is a bit early today. The high is about 95 degrees. I’m thankful for air conditioning and ice cold watermelon.
