It was a beautiful day today, Father's Day. After gifts were opened and supper eaten...cooked perfectly by son #2...the rain came. I love sitting under the protection of the overhang on the front porch and listen to the gentle rain.

I sit here.....

And this is the view from here.... Poppy...isn't it beautiful?

Double peonies beginning to open I love June...the garden is bursting...the weather is perfect (most days)...no wonder my grandparents named my mother June, born on a perfect sunny June day. Even today with my boys all grown up, I remembered today, the joy I felt in June...beautiful early summer days that were quiet and lush...a time to savour before summer holidays!

Free for all Friday
TGIF
Friday the 13th


I just learned that the Italians view Friday the 13th as a lucky day! I'll take that view over the "others".


I just won the bidding on a singing bowl on eBay. The sound is beautiful and deep...I think this bowl was listed as a "G" - Throat Chakra sound...it's a lovely sound and gives me goose bumps and is calming...........all at the same time. I have been bidding on bowls from this site for a few weeks now and always, the prices went way too high, especially when you factor in almost $20 to ship...but yesterday was my lucky day.

Happy Friday.





On another note....I was thinking about the dangerous, exciting and exhilarating things our (grown-up) kids do that scare us. It's the job of parents to worry FOR-EV-ER I think. L's daughter treks through PNG and travels to exotic areas of the world - Thailand, Cambodia, etc. ON HER OWN!! LM's son is back planting trees deep in the interior of British Columbia and then heading to Spain to learn Spanish and teach English. We worry constantly about our kids and up until now I thought I was "SAFE". That feeling lasted until my son #1................just bought himself a motorcycle!!

I pinched this photo from a blog I frequent http://www.bohemiangirldesigns.com/ and it made me think of my best friend. Here's "boho's" picture:




The theme around blogland on Thursday centres on love....and the picture above of course made me think of my bbf...here we are, oh about 45 or 46 years ago:

....and now..well, last year at TIFF:

I would love to drive 3 hours to squeeze my best friend's butt!
