A little break

I am sick and family members are sick--coughing, sneezing, wheezing, blowing, groaning, whining. It's nothing serious, but it diminishes productivity, so instead of thinking of this blog with regretful anxiety I've decided to institute an official two week hiatus, while I catch up on other stuff. 

I do plan to get some work done in my garden. It's the season of high hopes! 

The illustration is by Cicely Mary Barker. I tried but cannot track it to its online source, It's from her book Groundsel and Necklaces.


  1. Love the picture. Reminds me of you and your drawing. Hope all feel better soon. Aunt Dee

  2. I love this illustration too. I can so picture myself as that girl and think happy thoughts of summer. I hope you and yours feel better soon!

  3. My goodness, I'm so sorry I didn't get to these comments. Aunt Deanna, I'm so glad you can leave comments now. Its fun to hear from you in that way. The girl in the drawing reminds me of me, too, a past me that I still identify with, a child in God's presence that feels very connected with nature. Linda, thank you for your comment. I love that you can see yourself as that girl too.
