Rock'n it...

 

 This is my rock stack for today.  I change them up every so often, mostly when I find a rock that's different from the run of the mill rock.

 

 

 

 

 This is part of my little garden rock'n on with veggies and flowers.

 

 

And this is Shasta County, CA business owner, father and citizen, Carlos Zapata, showing up, rising up, rock'n it, bringing his fire, passion and truth. Enough is enough, the silent majority needs to be silent no more...! 🇺🇸

Laughing at the rain...

After a fairly long warm and dry spell, it's raining this morning here in the PNW.

Perfect weather for painting, memories,


 and a favorite song by Jon Lord...

"Pictured within"

Here be friends...
Here be heroes...
Here be sunshine...
Here be grey...
Here be life...
Here love lies bleeding...
Memories so hazy...
And dreams that drove me crazy

Here be down...
Here be paradise...
Here be starbright...
Here be pain...
Here be smiles in eyes like rainbows...
My father and my mother...
My sisters and my brother -
Pictured within

Where there're shadows ill met by moonlight...
There are dragons I have slain...
And here be bright eyes with hair so golden...
Sunrise and sunset and running free...
And laughing at the rain

Here be home...
Here be travellin'...
Here be thunder...
Here be blue...
And Sometimes heaven and thoughts of wonder...
The Miracle of children...
A poet and a pilgrim

Kith and kin - pictured within
Lose and win - pictured within

Positives in a crazy negative world...


We had a wedding in the extended family.  I went to the Sisters, OR ranch venue with My Sean.  We do well road trip'n together.  Sean even said on the way back that I was the best road trip'n partner cause there is fun but no drama with me, lol.
None of the social distancing, mask wearing stuff for us.  Hugs and kisses were plentiful all around.

A great time was had by all.

I'm going to be a GREAT grandma in December, thanks to granddaughter Ali and her hubby, Tyler.


It has been a while since we had a baby in the family, and I'm really looking forward to this new chapter.  They had the gender reveal the other day, and it's a girl!

The contractor removed my enclosed deck from the front of the hovel when they resided the unit.  I own the inside, the HOA owns the outside.  There will be landscaping done to the whole complex when all the units are completed.  In the mean time, I planted a garden in that mini space.


Tucked in around the zinnias, are a bell pepper, two tomatoes, a cucumber, a patty pan, a yellow squash, and a zucchini. There are bush beans, cilantro, & basil growing on the tiny back patio.   One zucchini plant, and I'm already freezing them for zucchini bread this winter. But mostly leaving them on neighbors doorsteps and running...
