Gifts from Nature

I just received the coolest gift!

I was sewing and my dog was whining by the window, I stood up (not sure why, I usually ignore this as she is always noting walkers) and to my amazement there were three young buck deer in my front yard!!

Deer are common in my neighborhood but one rarely sees them during the day.

As I crept up to the window to get a closer look they decided to move on, but one, the youngest one by the looks of his antlers, paused for a moment and looked right at me.

I had to blog about this because I also got to see a hummingbird this morning. I just happened to turn toward my window to unplug my phone charger and got to see it feasting on the lantana.

I'm so grateful for these sightings, my heart is very heavy right now as my personal life is in dramatic transition and getting to witness this beauty is a reminder to me that everything is going to be alright.

Syd Gris, Smoove, Lee Coombs (playin' on my birthday, yo!)

Everytime I was there last year I was blown away by the talent. I'm going to pay much closer attention to the line-up this year so I can keep track and recognize all of the incredible talent.

On to making hats...I'm slammed.

Burning Man Preparations

Wow! Where in the world does the time go? So much to do, the only way I can keep from being overwhelmed is to say my mantra: "There is time and space to do all I need to do, my needs are met!" You think that's silly!? Well, it works.

My friend Theresa said she was so overwhelmed by her upcoming elopement arrangements she decided to treat it like a second job.

GREAT Advice!

I've decided to do this with my Burning Man preparations! It's the only way to fit in all that needs to be done and still maintain the rest of the crazy busy stuff that is going on in my life.

Tops on my list:
-Finish putting new art on the shade structure panel and get it shipped back to Nage
-Clean out my tent!
-Start Packin'! Sheesh, there's a deadline now to mail off a box since I can't fit it all on the plane anymore!
-Wrap up at least two new outfits I have in the works...I can always recycle my old ones...if I have to...

Well, that's a good start, more later...I mean who has time to BLOG!?
