the number 21, a lucky number=spring
the winter was long this year so i am especially happy with this promising season. I have already planted so plenty of seeds sprouting already and the malva is robust and covered in purple beauty as are the azaleas. 


i've been stitching a lot. A LOT. it is therapy, it calms me down, almost sedates me. 
and all my stitching speaks of life

and hope for Richard
the best thing has been being able to get outdoors, take long hikes with Tatiana and Tigo



nature also being one of the great healers




and in between, tons of reading and Netflix as I nurse R before his big surgery. 
through this difficult time, we somehow seem to make things work and keep it joyous, positive and love-filled with plenty of laughter too.


i guess you can guess that just by the colors we surround ourselves with





and fresh flowers ALWAYS



there is little to complain about other than  this prolonged wait for R's surgery

still spending a lot of time homebound and trying to make the best of it. richard still undergoing a myriad of tests and still no diagnosis and he keeps losing weight, sleeping long hours and quite listless. i am present. and playful.

tigo lovin'

keeping the home warm and comfortable for him.
and making



stolen moments
a stitch here and there
always becoming
subconsciously patching


for tomorrow may rain so I keep following the sun even if i have to create it myself
