The afternoon sun

I took this picture in my daughter's room last weekend when it was still summer./I like the way the afternoon sun reflects on the wall and bathes the room with its dreamy light./Today it is already fall.And it is official.Last night the temperatures dropped bellow the freezing point and the frost burnt the leaves of the veggies in my little garden.Well,it's Minnesota.One day it's hot the next day it's freezing.
The cold weather did not stop me from doing my chores.I am almost ready for my trip to Europe.I am going to Bulgaria to visit my parents.I am kind of nervous about the flying but i believe everything will be OK.

Dream catchers

It was sometime in the middle of this summer.She woke up very early in the morning scared.She said she had had a nightmare.She would not forget the bad dream for hours.
So,I suggested:"Let's make a dream catcher.I've heard they help with the nightmares."
We googled it,found tutorials on Utube,thank God for the world web,and made one.We used materials that we found in the house:some wire form the basement,pink yarn from mama's stash and beads from her craft boxes.She took a big part in the making,I would say she made half of it.As you can see it turned out pretty good and she was so proud of herself.A couple of weeks ago when her dad complained of having a bad dream she suggested to make one for him,too.and we did.

Picnic by the creek

It is a gorgeous sunny day today.I suppose one of the last beautiful summer days.I celebrated this beautiful day with a bike ride in the woods.Because fall is knocking on our doors already.Pretty soon it will start raining,will be cold and gloomy for days.And we will have to stay in our warm and cozy homes dreaming about summer,longing sunshine and remembering the great fun we had.
These two pictures are some of those I will go back to when I start missing the summer. Sweet memories from bike rides and picnics by the creek,collecting beautiful rocks and catching pond skaters in the water.

Random picture

The mornings are cooler but the days are still warm.It is kind of hard to figure out how to get dressed.Jacket and jeans or just a t-shirt and capris?The school started two days ago and it is still a big excitement.I am happy she can't wait to go there in the morning.No problems with waking up and getting ready.Such a relief in comparison with the last year.
And the house was quiet for about seven hours.Did some chores,talked to a friend on Skype.Finished everything i planned to do.This gives mesome peace of mind.I feel like the cat in the picture at the moment /or not/.By the way,I took this picture at a gardening business in the city of Houston,MN.A very pretty place with gorgeous plants and flowers and also with a bunch of cats and kittens in residence.My folks and I love to visit there.

Two quick flower sketches completed with ink and colored pencils during my morning break at work.
