Tea Towel Pillow, a Quilt, 2 Dogs and some thoughts...

 56 Mays. People are always lamenting the passing of time and here it is again, the end of another month. I've lived for 56 Mays and this one is over.
Target Tea Towels and an old throw Pillow

 One May for each year of my life. Did I cherish it? Did I enjoy it? Not especially, it just flew by like the rest of the months.
The tea towel pillow and a quilt I made
It had some pretty days, some gray days, some flowers bloomed, I watched the clouds and the sunsets, I watered the plants, I cleaned the house and I dreamed of projects as I watched tv.

  I talked to family and friends and I snuggled up with my dogs.
Pumpkin got under that quilt and wouldn't move and wouldn't look at the camera either!

Such is life--light and dark, day and night and mostly we live in our thoughts. Isn't that reality? A few minutes we live in the moment, the rest we spend in our thoughts. What do we need to do? How will we do it?
Looks pretty on the other side too!

Maybe that's why I like making things. For that time, you live in the moment and only in that moment. You have to think about what you're doing.. not what has been or what will be. So I keep sewing and painting and planting and doing.
Tinker wants to know why Pumpkin is so tired...

Those are my 'be here now' moments and I cherish them.
 Have a cherished day!  Cindy
