For Now...

Well ...
I'm thinking I  must have used up all my photo space here @ Posted from Home as I have been unable to Save and publish a post!! 

 I've tried everything possible to no avail, even giving my old computer a good run-through clean thinking maybe that was the problem.

Then when I removed the photos,  the post saved, so it must be that all my photo space is gone AGAIN although no message has appeared  :-(
  I was surprised to see I had published 279 posts and each post came with LOTS of photos.


In the meantime while I try and figure out why I can not publish a post with a photo ...

 I am getting ready to celebrate Summer Solstice.  I am not a Summer girl at all and do not do well in the heat.  I do however, respect &  love celebrating the 4 Seasons, so I have been creating prayer flags to hang along the garden pergola, enjoying trips to the market for fresh fruit & veg, new canning jars are sitting on my kitchen counter with plans on having a jam and pickle making afternoon with my sweet daughter,  I  have a book bag filled with wonderful reading material - just finished reading 29 Gifts: How a month of giving can change your life by Cami Walker, one of the best books  I have read in a LONG TIME!!  I love her writing style &  highly recommend it.
 When ever I read a book, I keep a stack of colourful post it notes and a pen beside me to jot down any quotes or inspirational thoughts and sayings when I come across them. By the time I was finished reading it,  the pages of 29 Gifts had little post it notes poking out from the cover all through the book  :-D
I have a new journal just waiting to fill with Summertime thoughts with the prettiest watercolour of a Mason jar of blue Hydrangea,  a list of untried vegetarian recipes I want to make for my family that are picnic taking friendly & lots of ideas I have jotted down for my Summer Time Wish list.

I hope to be back posting (with photo) soon!
Looking forward to stopping by & visiting with you on your blogs in the meantime.

52 Friday...

Animals love us
with constant hearts.
They offer us
pure joy,
a place to love
simplicity & purity.
~Julia Cameron~
Happy June 1st!  It is much cooler today, windy & pouring with rain. Peony petals have covered our front courtyard.  The garden will be thankful for this lovely deep soaking, much better than the sprinkler :-)  
I can hardly believe it is the first of June & even harder to believe it has been almost 4 months since we adopted Archer.  It feels like we've been together always.  I love this Julia Cameron quote ~ speaking of constant hearts, pure joy, simplicity and purity. How lucky are we to be on the receiving end of this ♥
Have a wonderful weekend xo
