My rug-in-progress has a, "force field," around it. I just can't touch it. I can't stay in the house, and I can't sit still long enough to pick up where I left off. It's the summer. It needs me to be an active participant. I suppose I could bring my work out to the back porch, but that doesn't seem to work for me. This year I need to wander through the summer. I mosey around the place and monitor summer's progress on a slow loop. I waited so impatiently for my retirement for just for this. I am fortunate to have one of my deepest needs met so well. Thanks Be.

Finally, a sunny morning. I love the way the slanted rays illuminate, and how they add a golden color to the morning. Thanks be.

I have an unstacked pile of fire wood around the bottom of the Bass Wood tree outside my bedroom window. I stood there digging the morning beauty, and making silent promises to get the stuff stacked---Soon, Honest! Down the trunk came a little red squirrel, and hopped onto the wood, and commenced to sample the different bark flavors. I watched him for quite a while, and left convinced he, liked Yellow Birch best.

One of these days, I'm gonna' "Get a Life." 'Eh, maybe not, this stuff makes me so happy.

I'm just back from our tiny Farmers' Market in Canajoharie, N.Y., where I sell my rugs. It's a bit early in the year for homegrown produce from upstate, where we are, but there were Strawberries. Those who arrived too late for them had to content themselves with a large assortment of greens.

One of the regular customers is a fellow that dresses Native American. He has moccasins, and head band, necklaces, wrist bands. All of his accessories are decorated with porkupine quills, crystals and feathers, etc. Today, he brought with him a ream of poetry, and read 20 or so pages aloud. I wasn't quite sure how folks were going to react to all this, but about 1 1/2 stanzas into his work, I was spell-bound, as were others.It was so relevant to the world we live in today. He made one salient point after another gently and with his own spiritual insights. 'One of the nicest surprizes I've had in a long time. I found myself feeling moved several times,and noticed other listeners reacting to his words. I wonder what next week will bring? It could turn into an interesting market place this year.

I wish pleasant surprises for all
love, Joy

Late Spring

I have to thank Tammy for setting up my Blog. I think she did a beautiful job. I am grateful.

This late spring weather so enchants me. I live rural, so the evening carries the scents of the blossoms that are everywhere. Everything is bursting with blossoms. I think it's Glorious, and it kind of makes me feel that way. I love to sit on the back porch in the evening and hyper-ventilate on Earth Mother perfume. ('Old Hippie.)

The Chamomile has been, "coming on," for a couple of weeks. I want to try to break a personal best record for Chamomile gathering. Of course, I can't really remember how much I picked last year, but my back will tell me when I'm getting close.

I'll close with Blessings

Sunday June 7

Hello Everybody,

Wow, I finally get to blog. I had to move my whole computer set up to a new place with inadequate space. I compensated with, "creative shelving," actually it wound up being, "Hair-Ball-By -The Seat-of-My-Pants,' shelving, but it works at present, and I have every confidence it will do so in the future. It only took me three days, and I think I may have a bit of P.T.S.D., but it's done, and I can get on with everything else.

Everything else for me is house and lawn tending--a bit of veggie gardening. For the past year I have been crochetting rags into rugs and selling them at craft fairs, and recently at the local farmer's market. I like the farmer's market much better that I do the fairs I've done. The prevailing mood is so, "laid back," and so far the vendors are very supportive of each other. So nice.

Well, I'm right at the end of my first blog. Good Wishes for all,
