Good evening! Tonight I am looking back at this odd summer, enjoying again my tiny bouquets.

I have a pet peeve about bloggers who just disappear, so to keep everyone updated, I am sharing that I am suddenly facing some health issues [not covid!] that may impact my  beachwalking, quilting, writing---and blogging. Please know I value all my readers, you are my friends. I will do my best to post and especially to respond to comments. I am not always able to do that right now, but I am trying. I added new Follow by Email buttons to the right sidebar and to the end of the post page for phone and tablet viewers. This will keep you in the loop. Please keep in touch. All will be well.

Mo and I had a wonderful summer! I hope you all did too.



gone to the beach...


  1. Prayers and good thoughts coming your way, love to you and Mo.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about health problems, Lizzy! Whatever is going on, I hope it turns out to be something mild, not too painful, and very short-term. I'll include you in my prayers.
    Thank you for sharing your zinnias and hydrangeas. Beautiful!

  3. Sorry about your having health issues--I totally "get it" as I have "disappeared" from blogland myself with this sciatica and the spasms from it...hope all goes well for you and you can get back to your lovely wandering walks...hugs and good thoughts, Julierose
