Sunset at the Beach

I just love the sunsets at the beach. This is Manhattan Beach, CA my daughter has a restaurant here, Old Venice, with Greek and Italian Cuisine. Grandson took this picture and is the chef at the restaurant.
It's perfect right now to be at the beach, we had 102 deg. today inland. Wish I was there right now since it's still very hot here.


These beautiful flowers were given to me by my son. Florist called them Lemonade.
Aren't they gorgeous? We had a huge lemon tree taken down because of the roots going
everywhere and shortly thereafter the florist came with these flowers.
Very thoughtful gift, thank you dear son.

I have made many dolls in the past years and just had to make a few ceramic dolls. I took a class to make this sweet ballerina dressed in pink. Made several other dolls and other ballerinas also.
I remember giving my mother a ballerina dressed in blue, that was her favorite color and added a music box to it, oh my did she ever treasure that doll. Have now been making soft little dolls about 9" in size, they certainly have been fun to make and also making soft cat dolls.

Happy Fathers Day to my dear Daddy, he is no
longer with me but I was the luckiest girl in
the world to have had him as my dad.
I learned so much from him, he was kind and
never would hurt anyone. As a young boy he
raised beautiful pigeons and he always had a
love for cats, guess that's why I love cats too.
Love you Daddy.

We have seen the musical Cats four times and enjoyed it every time, it was marvelous. I feed feral cats and the behavior is just like the cats in the musical. They hide and pop out when you are not expecting them. I made these two cats to remind us of the play.

You know they say that in the garden we don’t count the hours, how true!
We get many birds here in our fountain. It's soothing and peaceful to sit and relax
in our private oasis, watch the birds and listen to the sounds of the water.

We are so fortunate to have nice weather here in So. California, especially cause it's good for working out in the garden. I like the tropical look and that is what I have in my patio. Here is a picture of my oasis.
When I am working outside I just seem to forget about everything else, especially when it's early in the morning when all is so quiet and you can only hear the chirping of the birds.
