antics of Sherman and Peabody, who were owners of a "way-back
machine," were any indication, time has a way
of being fluid.
one of the smartest guys I know of, believed there was a "space-time
continuum" (or is that Sheldon, from the "Big Bang Theory") (or
both?) in that time is like a river, flowing in eddies and currents, traveling
sometimes backwards, forwards, stopping, and starting, slowly and quickly, but
not always in the same direction, or the
wrote his amazing book of touring through time around the same period thatJules Verne envisioned a time
of fantastic travel.
about these possibilities, I firmly believe that I have been a passenger in one
of these time machines. Otherwise, I wouldn't be wondering where in the world
my summer went since my last posting.
say, Avast! My time ship beckoned and I apparently boarded.
course, I did have a multitude of activities which kept me busy during those
extremely hot days of summer.
A visit from my mother-in-law and her friend
in June, with wonderful day trips into the Rocky Mountains, including Rocky
Mountain National Park:
A three-day trip to
Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park in July:
August! So much was done in August, the most time consuming one being the
packing up and moving from my lovely downtown loft to a two-story town home in
The Town home...
Ah, those warm days of September, when we visited the humane shelter and
adopted a one-year-old, purebred black Labrador Retriever. (Getting to know him
these past several weeks, however, has made me seriously pondering if he isn't
with a sloth...but that is another story...)
things seem to have settled down quite a bit (other than a contentious
presidential race) I am planning to devote more time to reading my list of
lovely blogs again, and posting!
Suffice to say that I have (as yet) fallen off
the face of the earth.
But who knows? December 2012 is just around the corner...
Eight, Nine, Ten (2), Eleven, Twelve, Thrteen, Fourteen, Fifteen...
Fairies surrounded me for quite a long time but, in an immature sense of maturity (or so I thought), I gave most of them away to a wonderful friend of mine. But I did keep a few cherished ones... (and, by the way, my wonderful friend ALSO loves Dragonflies)...
I shot these photos on the free mall shuttle on my way to have lunch with my sister. Please excuse the blurriness - they are not your (nor my) eyes that are going, it is simply because I was quickly snapping them on my cell phone while moving...and the pot holes didn't help.
In case you don't have super, carrot-amplified eyes, the sweet older lady is wearing a pair of Cat in the Hat Crocs....
Yarrow, from Oakmoon Studio at oakmoonstudio.blogspot.com (check
out her blog, she is quite creative and her work is superlative!) has agreed to
be the inaugural hostess for my dear friend, Vivi-me!
Once I heard the great news from Yarrow, I quietly whispered the news in Vivi-me's ear.
She was rather exhilarated and was nearly
insufferable for a while, bouncing about on the chaise.
However, she finally nodded off, as did I.
It took me a day (or two) to gather things up and I
mentioned to her just last night that she only had a few more days left here in
Colorado before she went on holiday.
Ever the want-to-be-worldly traveler, she and I discussed
her impending trip to the beautiful United Kingdom over bagels and coffee this
morning, with me imparting great wisdom such as "don't make a nuisance of
yourself and stay up all night," and "make sure you say please and
thank you," and "write!" She, on the other hand, was cool as a
cucumber and took it all in stride as she had already planned out her day with
her own preparations.
Like booking her flight...
And packing (with special gifts for Yarrow from Colorado)...
And saying a tearful goodbye to the cat...
But then she made it clear that she was quite anxious to get
So, by this time tomorrow, she should be boxed up in her
all-in-one luggage and on her way to Yarrow's house for some wonderful and
And hopefully, she will be a such a superb guest, someone
else out there in blogland will invite her into their home too!
