Tulips and a Turtle for the January Cure

The January Cure has come around again, and Stratoz and I are giving our house some attention.  Besides cleaning tasks, there is the task of buying flowers weekly, and the color is a lift in the winter.  Another task is to sit in a place you don’t usually sit, and observe the new view for 10 […]

Creating an Oasis of Light and Color in the Winter: Wall of Lights

  My Partner-in-Craft is taking good care of me as the days get shorter.  He set up the Wall of Lights, after much untangling.  The tradition started a few years back when we were too exhausted from doing craft shows every weekend to set up a Christmas tree, and instead Stratoz hung all the lights […]
