I want to say
I love you.
And, I’m happy.

I am surrounded by things,
A world created
Long time in the making.

A home.

Dishes and things,
Books, papers, supplies
20 years worth or so.

Of doing.

Now, it is finally
The new year
Of the Horse.

The Chinese lunar year.

The only new year
That really counts
Because it seems so real.


I sense the change.
This is the time
To begin again.

May peace be with you.

Loretta Warner, I Love Knitting


I’ve changed my patio garden this year, moved things around, leaving space where once stood many plants huddled together. I will have to rethink things when the warmer, sunnier days come. One giant umbrella simply will not do if the plants are to remain in their new positions. All this is what I call problems I like to have.

Here is a dress that was once only a top. An example of another problem that I liked having. Solved!Image
