Written mostly to update blog subscribers. However, thought I’d share here too …
It’s been over a month since I’ve written or published anything on my blog, with my postings being much less frequent on facebook and instagram. I felt moved to share an update.
I have been busy with finishing tasks to get my upcoming book released by the end of Summer. Here’s a peek at the cover. Almost there with the cover!
I was wrapped in details of …..

Lillian and Camilla May 2019 Date Day
First stop was to pick up the printed graduation announcements.
Second stop – Fries and a bright and beautiful shortbread cookie for Lillian. Crispy cauliflower with a siracha aioli sauce and a vegan oatmeal coconut raisin cookie for me. The cauliflower was amazing. So incredibly good and perfect amount of spiciness in the sauce. 🧡🧡🧡
Last stop – Craft store for sparkly things to embellish the graduation announcements. Lillian still has Christmas money so she picked out a shiny pencil case she’s had her eye on to use for traveling with her colored pencils.

Absolutely breathtaking walk this morning. I was serenaded with birdsong nearly the entire walk.

The only earrings I’ve worn for the past 6 or 7 years. Seriously, no others have been worn during that time.
They’ve always been deeply special for me and they’ve always held a beautiful energy. Mom and Frank got them for me in New Mexico about 7 years ago.
I lost one this past Tuesday. I had put them in my bag and one must have been caught on my keys when I pulled them out.
Change, shifting, something is definitely occurring. There’s this loss of a special earring and what I’m letting go of on Wednesday, the 4th.
I will miss you dear earring and sad you are with me no longer. Yet, I’m feeling an interesting and tingly excitement for what’s to come.
The sole earring that remains will become a part of my alter. And on occasion, I may just wear one earring. What the heck! 💙💙💙

Thomas and Camilla April 2019 Date Day – First stop – Kids on Big Rigs 2019
Thomas had a blast shooting water from the bag the Forest Service guys use (forgot to ask what it’s called)!! I may have done it too!! 💦 💦 💦
That handcar is a workout!! Couldn’t get a picture of us on there as my hands were busy! 😜 It was uphill on the way back! Whew! His favorite was the emergency radio vehicle!
Second stop – An appetizer and soup at Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno.
Organic blue corn chips with amazing salsa and guacamole! Chayote chowder for me and totally tomato for Thomas. And look at the gorgeous salt n pepper shakers! My dream house! Ahhhhh …

Books I’m currently reading. One is a reread (times about 3). I’m a minimalist who loves reading. I also prefer the feel of the book in my hands. So, my books come from the library. 😘 Do you usually have more than one book at a time going?

Reasons I KNOW it’s time for a Lillian break:
I’ve been can’t-move-my-body exhausted (with a side order of pounding headache) every night this week.
I turned the heat on last night instead of the air conditioner … it was a balmy 75 degrees almost all night! 🤪😂 Realized what I had done not too long before getting up.
One of the 3 times Lillian woke me up, she asked for throat spray (homemade with cold spring water and peppermint essential oil) …. She got one good spray directly up her nose! Oops!!! Sorry Lillian …
I had a peanut butter & jelly sandwich for dinner tonight.
The Romano Duo picked up Lillian this afternoon after our library volunteering. She’s off to spend 3 nights with them; rejoining Thomas and I on Saturday. Just in time for movie night! Hallelujah … It’s break-from-Lillian time! Love you to infinity Lillian! And, grateful for our breaks!! (Photo from May 2018)
