Up near the Idaho border is a nice small town named Spokane. It's Eastern Washington's answer to Seattle, without suburbs and everything their 3 million people bring with them.
Nevertheless, business took me there today and just across the street from my meeting was this charming home. I'm crazy for a picket fence and when combined with flowers my heart skips a beat.
I walked closer as I fumbled around in my purse searching for my camera in an effort to take a few snapshots. I will keep these images with others to daydream over on quiet afternoons.
The closer I got to the garden the more apparent it was how neglected it had become. Still, as I stood there with the setting sun streaming through, the beauty of the garden caused the weeds to somehow disappear.
Here I am with my best friend in the whole world, Renee'. It took me thirty-two years to find her! I used to hear the expression soul-mate and I really couldn't get it, then I met Renee`. I believe men and women are just too different to be soul-mates. So, ladies, if you have one out there, it will be a girlfriend.
- I am fifty-eight years old and a happy empty-nester of three grown children: nearly 26, 33 and 37. My 33 year old daughter is married and gave us our first grandchild, a baby girl named Astrid. I have been married one time for 41 years so far. I am the sixth of eight sisters. I have done some traveling. My restless oldest daughter took me to New York, Paris and London. I love to scrapbook, do needle art, beading, quilt, sew, decorative paint, home decorating and anything else that I can imagine or inspires me after looking at a magazine, HGTV, or the web! I enjoy having internet friends and think of them as modern day pen-pals.
