The petals of this delicate flower remind me of a summer dress flying with the wind in a hot evening.

Nurturing Thursday – Dream

This is my first post for Nurturing Thursday hosted by Becca from “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea”.

I was looking forward for a challenge where I could share quotes and poems that I’m in love with. Today morning I saw Becca post, and I didn’t have any doubt I would like to participate. So here is my first post for Nurturing Thursday.

Yesterday night I finished the book “the lotus and the lily”, I can say I’m another person after reading this book. One of the last sentences in this book is the one I’m quoting today.

Janet quote 1Please see Becca blog for more details about Nurturing Thursday, and to see more wonderful stuff she has in her blog. I’m following her for several months now and she has lots of creativity in there.

Friday Fictioneers: The Cottage

Here it’s my 100 words story for Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers.

I didn’t want any cottage for the summer, but he insisted on it.

He said the kids needed more contact with nature and we’d have fun.

I hated everything about this place: the look of it, the wooden smell, and the giant mosquitoes.

They left early to explore “nature”. I stayed inside with my tea and my books.

It was getting dark and they hadn’t come back. I went outside and saw that horrible thing hanging from the tree.

I knew something terrible had happened to them.

After 20 years I’m still here alone. Now this place is my home.

Monday Musings: Summer is almost over!

I need more 100 days of summer. I can’t believe how went by so fast.

I know we still have until the end of September, but with the kids going back to school next week, I’ll not have much time to myself in the mornings.

They need everything ready before 8 am and I need to be at the work at 9 am. I need to organize myself better to have time to keep up with yoga and walking by the river early mornings. These 2 activities are helping me with my back pain and right shoulder inflammation.

I was getting stressed yesterday night thinking about all the changes I’ve to do next week. I  went to my studio, had a deep breath, and worked on my art journal. One of the pages I made is this one.

I wanted to add the word “simplicity” at the bottom. Simplicity is one of my words for 2014 and until now I haven’t worked on it. My focus for these last months of 2014 is to reduce everything and keep on the important stuff, so I’ll give more value to them.

I looked in all my magazines for the word “simplicity” and I could not find it. Instead  found  “new start” and I liked it. Now I know it’s the perfect match for my page, today is the New Moon, so a new start, a new cycle is beginning.

And you? Do you have plans for the months ahead?
