...this was my fortune cookie on Friday. I couldn't believe it because a couple of hours earlier I had a conversation with Shari about balance while running errands instead of working in my studio. I thought the universe was telling me something.

What does balance feel like...would I recognize it? Sometimes I feel like I don't know I am balanced until I am out of balance. Is this sounding like jibberish to you too?

Do you see that shadow in the photo...the sun was out here in Washington, and we had 3 days of it. I soaked up as much as I could and even managed to get a little too much sun on my nose, but I did not care. It was heaven! Most people here in Washington begin to panic as soon as it gets over 75, but not me. I like it hot.

The garden is starting to bloom and everything is green. This is one of my favorite lilac bushes. It has a double flower and smells amazing...

Oh my gosh, Lisa! I cannot believe that fortune!! Too much for mere coincidence. Wish I could smell your beautiful lilacs in person, my dear... Hugs, Shari

I bet you are cute with a pink nose! I can smell the lilacs in my head Lisa. Glad you had some sun.

We in the S.F. area had a heat wave here for about 3 days and its over now and I am freezing. If I get into bed at night with cold feet they never warm up and I don't sleep very well but then if it's too hot well, I don't sleep very well either.

I look forward to seeing what you post about. Have you made anything pretty you could show us?

Have a nice rest of the week.

I used to live in Washington so I know how precious the sunlight is there. Hope all is well and good!
