big face watch, weaving , chorus line clouds, and a gay fridge


I have been looking for a simple wrist watch, one with a large face, all of the numbers, with no luck, until today. As I dropped by to get drugs for my neck, I spotted THEE watch at the jewelry counter, Simple, Big face, big numbers ,leather wrist band. A straight forward watch! ON SALE- 25% off. Just what I envisioned.  
It is water resistant, great for the PNW rain, and my  forgetfulness.
The measurement of time  is probably not important, Wasn't it Albert Einstein who said it is an illusion? 
I am intrigued  anyway- time and clocks -  years gone by- what time does to a body... and I like to be on time!

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
Benjamin Button.

I feel more secure with time on my wrist, 25% off.
My phone is always out of charge, my car clock dead.
No big clocks in town  chiming out the hours.
Wrist watch is GOOD. I hate being late.





From there I went to a charity shop and found  Japanese dolls in a bag for $2.99.
Most of what I found in the shop was - catch, and release. I  rearranged every shelf, and held every object- and released! 
Just the dolls made their way to my house, understandably!!

Came home to find a wonderful surprise in the post from Joanne , Cup on the Buss blog, weaver extraordinaire- Two tea towels of the most marvelous weave. Full of admiration  for weavers- Joanne at the top of the list!
Of course I will not be using them as towels.
"In my mind, the towels are like Tibetan prayer flags. They blow prayers and mantras to the wind, to spread their good will and compassion into the universe"- Joanne Noragon
Lovely- a random act of kindness- something to pay forward...
I will use these so called towels, (art)  in the center of the table,
 on which to put Japanese dolls , geodes, vases full of flowers -weeds,  and other treasures.
They are incredibly soft.



A quick look around the yard this evening,
All of the flowers look like hats for the Royals.




There is a chorus line of cloud, kicking it well above the yard, rare bluest blue sky!


the slanting sunshine casting prisms on my miserable , old refrigerator door, dressing it up for about ten minutes. Making it  feel special.



In between running from place to place- I stopped by to get another x-ray. Seeing the neurosurgeon tomorrow for a look see.
During all of this healing , I have wished time away. Am glad it is marching lickety split forward. 
"Time is the longest distance between two places"
In time, neck will be OK. I will be myself again.
So they say.

  1. Beautiful watch on your wrist to make sure you are always on time!
    And I definitely would have bought those pretty little dolls. What soft carpets the woven towels make for their feet.

    1. They are the sweetest little girls, and they make my house look better. For $2.99 - a very reasonable adoption.

  2. I never got in the habit of wearing a watch. my wrists were too skinny for even the smallest wristband and didn't like them flopping along my arm. Joanne's towels are dreamy and they work well too. and you are always and ever yourself.

    1. Sarah, of Circles Of Rain, wears her watch on a fob around her neck. works really well, as she wears it upside down so that she can see it without doing a head stand. The weaving is dreamy, absolutely, Like Buttah...
      I do not feel anything like myself but slowly coming back...

  3. I've always loved that quote from Benjamin Button, "I hope you see things that startle you." And the chorus line in the clouds, how fabulous. At first, all I saw was a feather, and then of course, there they were, the legs choreographed, about to kick in unison. Enjoy your fab new watch.

    1. Living life backwards seems perfectly reasonable, doesn't it, the Benjamin way. YES, glad you saw what I saw and did not think that i had lost my mind ( I have, but you are not suppose to notice out loud). It is now ten past four, and I know that because NEW WATCH! Yippee

  4. Glad you found a suitable watch! I stopped wearing a watch years ago -- I just use my phone now. I love those beautiful prisms -- a little bit of magic for an ordinary refrigerator!

  5. Phones are pretty great for just about everything, mine is always out of charge or lost somewhere, I can depend on my wrist a little bit better.
