I've Come Full Circle

Monday, June 17, 2013
I really do enjoy blogging and like to  post each Monday. Life got in the way this past month as I got caught up in a whirlwind of downsizing, garage sailing, trashing, packing and unpacking. As I indicated in my post of May 15, The Cycle of Life, here: http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=2358905162839317966#editor/target=post;postID=6240603971899533456;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=2;src=postname
we've moved. I think the "cycle of life" has come full circle. How do I know? Well, the boxes and packing paper have been picked up by the movers and I have baked chocolate chip cookies in my new kitchen! I can brush my teeth and sit on my patio to crochet! What else does one need in life?
We "warmed" our house last Friday night on the patio!













On a walk around our neighborhood we passed by Lakeview High School where I really enjoyed the mosaic-encrusted sculptures:


















As the  sun was waning last night, I took a look straight up from our patio. Note the incredibly blue sky!


This building is classic Chicago greystone and was built in 1893. I was intrigued by the shadow play as I relaxed and enjoyed the last warmth of a wonderful day:
Because we have such a short growing season, I was determined to make filling my flower pots with colorful annuals a priority. I've been watching the peonies open one-by-one this week! Chloe and Nicole made this heart mosaic for my birthday. I'm so happy Chloe is interested in doing "crafts" at age 3 1/2!

I love my new patio!
