Free At Last!

Free to see the sunset without worrying about getting up early...



And to tend to the neglected garden...



And take care of the ancient kitty...



Yup, it's summer for sure...for 6 glorious weeks!

How I Spent My First Week of Summer

Three days down and two to go of my math training. Earning every penney by keeping the old peepers open and mouth from saying rude and silly things. No wonder it doesn't QUITE feel like summer just yet...

Glories of the Morning

This will probably be my best year yet for morning glories. Here they are as they open to greet the day...

Sorta' Summer

School ended yesterday so I'm off to the beach this AM wearing my new beach glass ring and ready to relax. This California poppy is about as bright and sunny as I feel! Only 3 days really as I have math training next week...then my true summer starts.

Sea Glass Ring

Found this piece of beach glass a while back.



Here it is made up as a ring by the West Coast Sea Glass Company in Sequim, Washington. Got it just as I am about to embark on my summer career of Lady of the Beach.


Tomorrow is the last day of the school year when I will happily wave good bye to one of the most challenging (Ha! I could tell you stories...) classes in recent memory.
Another year like this and Lady Lemonade will start taking something strong with that lemonade...

Out and About

Found these cactus while out and about rambling. What interesting things are to be found around us!

Where the River Meets the Sea

Here's where the Santa Clara River (think:rocky wash most of the time) meets the Pacific Ocean. The tides come and go making it look full and watery or sparse and dry. I cross over it everyday on my way to work. But only for 8 1/2 more school days.
