~ Moving and Grooving~

 After spending the last couple of months in a very dark hole...a hole of despair and mild depression...it was so hard to get motivated or even to move...I have finally conquered it though and feel a little more like myself...Personally, I think that I am in the early stages of menopause...Mama went through hers young and quickly  so I am hoping to inherit some of that good fortune ...I have so many symptoms that match the infamous menopause list, woe is me!  I am happy to say, this week I have actually felt like sewing in the attic once again ~ and it felt great to be there...finally!!
 Every day I get to see these bright,  lovely little mini sunflowers...they have definitely  helped brighten my mood...We have them on a table on the deck facing the house...The growing season this year is so out of whack and all of my summer flowers are just about at the end of their life cycle...There should be weeks of growth left at this point ...Mother Nature!!!!!!!!
Finally, I have to include a picture of the newest member of our family, Tabitha...my little witch!
~ Happy Friday the Thirteenth ! ~
Take Care,
Tina

That pit of despair is a horrible place to be. Glad you are doing better!

Beautiful flowers! We have a sunflower (small one) growing, but the heat makes it go limp a lot. Not sure if it's going to flower.

Cute kitty, I love her name!

I think I am in perimenopause as well, and I am glad you are feeling more like yourself!

I'm glad to hear you're doing better. I had a bout myself earlier this year acerbated by our never-ending remodeling project and my knee injury that left me unable to do much of anything. You're probably right about the menopause thing too. Take care and enjoy your new kitty! ~Roberta

Love what you've done with your flowers ... and your new furry family member Tabitha reminds me of one we had years ago ... WE called him 'OJ' ... that was before the real one was tried for his wife's demise. 'OJ', the cat was wonderful.
Hope you continue to feel better and have a Blessed Day with Lots of Peace,
Barb
