what started out early this afternoon as a highly inspired blogpost, has turned into a humbling experience since three minutes ago i pressed return and everything i had written VANISHED! my few free moments to share with you before my trip to oaxaca next monday, gone with a single click.

i will try to remember a three line poem i had written and summarize what little i can remember of the rest and summarily include a few photos as i get over the blood boiling in my veins and my anger at blogger for allowing that after i carefully saved over and over again.

a new leaf,
the good earth's
green heartbeat
what i was so happy to share and had written out so eloquently before is that i woke up to 
new sprouting leaves on the first plant i ever bought when i moved back to california in 1999, a plant that has
moved with me numerous times, always a survivor, a fighter, a symbol of every change in my life.  

and then i stepped out into the garden and the cecile brunner climbing rose had but one tiny pink rose on it, the first since we moved three weeks ago.

and my first thought was to share it with my soul sister chichi.  she will understand.
and to share with you my birthday gift: a stunning painting by jeanne-marie.

i need to make a run to have some of my paintings framed, paintings i've been storing until the big move; one by jenny wentworth, another by rick beerhorst and several by cathy cullis as pictured above the mirror which will go over the mantle.

progress continues on the house in giant leaps since i want to leave for the trip having left it as comfortable as possible for richard.  

 this is the corner we come to relax and where we have been ardently glued to on sunday eves
watching season 4 of downton abbey.


 and this is where i tiptoe off to when a cup of coffee is in much need or to cook on these cold cold nights we have been having. no rain yet though but for a few minutes of droplets yesterday.
it has been hard adjusting to an electric stove.  so far so good other than higher temperatures needed but if further down the road we can switch back to gas, i would be more than obliged.


 i did it, re wrote just about every word.
 and there it is again.....the tiny leaf that started the day.
