My Girl!

03 My Girl (Stereo) A happy little tune about My Girl!

My Girl, enjoying the porch and the flowers!

It’s a still, bright and warm morning here in Northern Illinois! This time of year things are a bit quiet in the perennial garden as the days have been quite hot! I was awakened by the sounds of the birds this morning! The two syllable voice of the bright red Cardinal is my most favorite eloquent speech from a bird! I must say, I think I am starting to get a little used to this change in my sleeping habits! I’m normally not an early bird, but must say, the mornings are glorious! (I never thought I would say that!)  So, I decided, no better time than now for me and Savannah to wander outside and checkout the morning!

So, as usual, Savannah is perky right away as she hears my footsteps on the floor! There is no coaxing or begging or even morning crankiness from My Girl, what a delight! She is just incredible. So, I thought it would be a nice little blog to share with all of you! When there are times I’m not quite feeling myself, I think that’s a perfect time to learn from my dog! Imagine if all of us lived like our dogs!

Oh how I love this! I can sit here all day long!

For instance, yesterday when I got home from work, I opened the patio door, and of course, there goes My Girl with me out the door….she didn’t even question the blazing heat! Nope, she danced out the door wagging her tail anxious to lay leisurely on the grass and gaze into still glassy pond. It was a perfect time to spruce her hair up a bit as I’m sure it’s pretty warm in that long fur coat that she wears! So, she enjoyed her hair being brushed and in between would get up to hug me as she likes to do! I wish everyone could have a Savannah of their own!

So, I decided, this bright and cheerful morning made me want to dress cool and cheerful for this warm sunny day! So, I grabbed a yellow and green striped top (all pretty sunshiny colors, my favorites), my favorite Peridot and Lemon Quartz earrings, a Peridot bracelet and a Peridot and Green Amethyst ring! My Girl, the sun, my pretty jewelry, I’m already feeling a bit perkier myself!

So, enjoy the happy little song, My Girl (Savannah) enjoying the morning porch and flowers and Today’s Blooms! (click on the photos to see it larger) And, when you need a break from all the warm sun and are taking a computer break, look at my Etsy shop! Inspired by my garden, I have been enjoying making some fine silver pieces! The mix of vintage looking fine silver and the perfect alluring gemstones, make a stunning piece of enduring jewelry! I really love them!

Well, it’s time to get rolling and hit the road soon! Enjoy your day….and take a lesson from My Girl and take time to smell the flowers!

Love and Peace….Linda

I think this song is so perfect being that I have been in a lazy daze for awhile now! Mike and I are off of work! Nothing planned….just enjoying each others company and living life the simple way!

Today we took off for a ride! AND, I didn’t even bring my iPhone! It was liberating! See, I’m old enough to remember what it is like when you want to get lost with someone! Out with the wildflowers feeling free!

It was a glorious day, the temperature my absolute favorite around 70 degrees! We started off getting a coffee and a bit of sweetness to start our day off! Then we took off for Long Grove. Long Grove is a cute little town filled with little boutique shops and art galleries. I’m sad to say so many were closed. But, we enjoyed the mosey walk up and down the brick streets! Saw some great treasures, but the big winner was Savannah…some homemade doggie biscuits…how could I not! She will love them, and she has been a little under the weather, so she more than deserves it!

Just the other day, I said to Mike, oh, it would be so perfect to sit outside somewhere and have lunch, the weather is perfect! Well, he kept that thought in his mind, so when we left we went for a short drive to a little quiet lake called Grass Lake and sat on the patio, and had lunch. Nothing fancy, just a lemonade and a burger. AND, the view, the company and the food made for a perfect leisurely enjoyable luncheon! What a nice day!

The only reason I have turned on the computer, is because I can’t seem to take my daily nap! Mike isn’t having a problem, but perhaps I have caught up with the much needed rest already! So, I thought I would share with you some of my flower blooms that have been blooming this last week or so as I have been on hiatus from any type of schedule!

I’m inspired now to create! A day in nature somehow rejuvenates me, the best inspiration ever…because we belong somewhere we feel free! So,  run away! Enjoy the wildflowers!

So, in your free time, after you have enjoyed the weather and the flowers….visit my Etsy Shop. You will love the natural gemstone jewelry I have created. When I finish the piece, I would like to think it’s no longer just a stone, but a natural fusion between the earth, body and spirit…causing you to feel at peace and one with nature!

Until next time,

Love and Peace…Linda
