I came across this little cartoon the other day and it reminded me so much of myself when I first started out on my own. I was always surrounded by books and plants, pens and notebooks, cuts of fabric, beads and fibers. Much has changed since those early years and much has stayed the same. I am still surrounded by books, my plants are all outside, for some reason I have no luck growing houseplants in Florida. My fabric, yarn, fibers and beads are all neatly tucked into plastic bins, out of sight and always on my mind. When I think of myself this little cartoon is how I still see me. Content.
This month I'm making a few changes inside the house, while its too hot to putter in the garden now is the perfect time to putter in the house, the first room to tackle: the kitchen, I needed a new mat to stand on my the sink, the old mat has gotten ratty and worn and I wanted something bright and I knew a few local places to look, I found this bright mat with a garden theme (what else)?

Today I begin work in my bedroom, I would like to move around a few key pieces of furniture, my desk for one by the window is nice during the cooler months, not so much through the summer which gets quite warm even with those energy efficient drapes, the book shelf unit I'm going to move out of the bedroom. I have a few other ideas rolling around my head.
Well let me leave with a few more beach photos, early morning biking on the boardwalk, and kite
