Much to the chagrin of my friend Denise - I must announce today that there are "200 Days 'Til Christmas!"

I know what you are thinking - I am totally nuts!

In some respects - you are correct in your assumption. But, I digress ... Since my sabbatical began two weeks ago - moments have become memorable. As silly as it sounds - when you are stressed - it is hard to remember what you had for dinner the previous night. I can tell you what I have eaten all week! Today, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

Yesterday - I took a few snaps of my peonies ... their fragrance is intoxicating!

The blueberries will be ready to pick in a few weeks ... in my haste of life, I had forgotten these babies in the freezer! Thankfully, they made 2 loaves of delicious breakfast bread!

With 200 Days left - I am determined to make most of my gifts this year - and if I am unable, I will purchase from artists & crafters. There are to many inferior goods out there and WAY to many unappreciated persons who create masterpieces on a daily basis.

This weekend - I hope to create a masterpiece or 2 and savor all the moments. I hope you do too!
Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! Comments, please!

Beautiful peonies! The white blossoms are very striking. Mostly around here I've seen pink ones. Someday, if I ever get the landscaping finished, my yard will include at least one peony.

P.S. mumble... 200 days... grumble...
