Morning Menaderings

My morning walks and hikes offer me a moment of peace. I'm fortunate to have avaiable to me such beautiful examples of the wonder of nature right out my front door. Here are a few things that caught my eye as I wandered past, hope whoever happens to stumble upon this blog enjoys the fruit of my menaderings...

Time travel with out a TARDIS

This weekend we did a bit of time traveling. Every year, during the first and second weekends of June there is a Renaissance fair at Camp Richardson, Lake Tahoe. This year I somehow persuaded a few friends to join me, lucky for me they brought their cameras!

There were barbarians,

some very talented traveling minstrels,

Da Vinci even made an appearance!

The queen held court,

And in the end I was forced to walk the plank!

Good times to be had by all!

Summer List

Last class was today! I aced my final and now I'm ready to get going on my summer to do list. Not all of the things on the list are projects to be finished, some are just things I would like to accomplish.

The list (will post before pictures on some of the projects soon):

1. Refinish my dresser

I bought this dresser years ago and have always intended on giving it a new look. This will

be the summer it finally gets done!

2. Embroider some of the very cute designs in my new pattern book

Maybe some pillows or art for my walls, who knows?

3. Finish one of the millions of short stories that I have started wrighting and never got around

thinking up an ending to.

4. Read or listen to (audio books are amazing!) at least 20 books, try to include some classics

5. Finish sewing the curtain for the bathroom that I bought the supplies for when I first moved


6. Take S. to Nevada City and have Mac and Cheese at Ike's Cafe

7. Go Camping!!!

8. Take a road trip to Ashland with Jessie and enjoy some Shakespear

9. Set up a work space in my new place with a table tall enough to work standing up

10. Make a bench so I can sit in the perfect morning sunlight right outside my front door

11. Find the perfect pair of boots for fall

This is just what I've come up with so far. Trust me there will be more!

I am a list maker and proud of it!!

New beginnings

The end to an old life, beginning a new. Not a new me, just slightly adjusted, and I hope a little wiser.

Wish me luck!
