SUMMER 2019

 SUMMER VIBES 

 "Time Flies!" 

  Those words swirl around in my head a lot these days
We are mid-way through May already and I am
still barely comfortable thinking of this as 2019.
Fast approaching is Summer and our slow season as
Snowbirds and "Part-Timers" depart for cooler temps.

I feel anxiety whenever I stop to think of how fast
I travel through the seven days of each week.
During our busy season, I am packing and unpacking
so often it makes my head spin!

When it is over, the quiet is nice...
(for a bit)
and then I get ansy!
Now, we have another local art market
on the Malecon or "waterfront" and
I can pack up and head down there on Saturdays.

I like busy. Busy is a good thing.
I guess if I had nothing going on,
life might slow down.
And, I am not sure that I would like that.

(Enough of my "I can't be 55" yet rantings.)

What does my Summer look like? 

I will be sewing - of course - that is therapy!
Working on a new cross-body bag design. 
Making some men's shirts for summer and fall.
And, Always looking for new ways to recycle garments.

"It's been such a funny day
I don't know why
Walking on an endless lane
Life passing me by

Tomorrow is calling
But I'm dragging my feet
The skies are indecently clear
But I can't stand the heat

You know, time flies
And the rebels, one day, they all go quiet
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind."


~ Lyrics Time Flies by Vaya Con Dios

"She said luck is all you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let's dance a while

She said nothing ever happens
If you don't make it happen
And if you can't laugh then smile

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies."

~ Lyrics Time Flies, Porcupine Tree

Spring 2019


It is March already! 
And, we have had a week or so of really fantastic weather - after a really long and wet winter. 
I guess it is Spring Break this week; and, I heard a funny new term.
Spring is the time for the annual "Bikini Hatching".
