Red Queen

When will I find him, that man of my heart ?
He is lost. In my search I have wandered near and far..
He distracts my mind. But when I find him
at last my mind will be at peace...
if you know where he is hiding, be kind -
tell me of it.

I Can't Hardly Believe It

Woohoo wow OMG... Finally Finally done moving out of the house we have lived in for the last 9 years. It is a big house and we filled it up. I do mean FILLED it. I never want to do that to my children and myself again, ever ever. My kids are so sore from all the work, they are such Good  Troopers.
You can't believe how much recycling loads and Goodwill loads and dump loads we hauled away. I thought I was keeping up with that, but so much lurked in corners and garage. I still need to massively edit but will have to do when I unpack. We were in such a hugh time crunch that things ended up going into boxes into storage unit anyway.
The realtor guy said it was the cleanest he'd ever seen a house left. My motto of always leaving my camp cleaner than when I found it really ruled that effort. We cleaned until our fingers bled. And out by midnight on Halloween. What a trip. So glad to start a new chapter. Sometimes you just have to up and get the hell out and move on. Pain in the ass or not. Guess the universe saw fit to kick my butt to the curb... hA. I laugh today but yesterday I could only cry from exhaustion.  
 I have everything in storage and am floating till I find a place. I was so busy packing and cleaning I had not even a minute to look properly. So I will start doing that tomorrow.
I am at my youngest daughter's house crashing in the spare bedroom and the boys are at their Dad's. I will go get them tomorrow and go out to eat or something. It is certainly liberating to be free from house worry for a few days, but we need to get into our next house before it rains. After all, now we have to move in reverse...but I'll worry about that later.
The moon is spectacular tonight and the sunset over the ocean was ultra beautiful. Hope to walk the beach tomorrow now that I have some time.
I am using a laptop to write this post and feel naked being mouseless. I keep grabbing my cell phone lying here thinking it is the mouse. Too silly.

Into the Void

The boys and I have been busting it out trying to get all our things into a storage unit. The rented house we have lived in for the last 9 years has been foreclosed and is now owned by the bank. They don't want any renters in here, so we are out. It will be on the market. The guy who lost is the 2nd owner we have gone thru. This guy was nuts to buy the house at the height of the market when prices were insane. The handwriting was on the wall, I thought everyone must see it ! The banks new price of the house is going to be 100,000's less than when he bought in 2007. We are caught in the crossfire. At least we aren't losing it all and can walk away.
We are better off than 99 percent of all the people who have lived on earth before us it is said, and for that I am grateful. We have loved living here and the boys have pretty much grown up here. I must say my book collection had a nice quiet nest to grow in and now we are moving many many heavy boxes.... The boys have been so so very good about it. They are getting a good workout. I hope they still love books after this !
So hope we find a lovely home to move into, no leads yet. We have to be out October 30th. Much work to do. Alleve and arnica gel are our friends.

Breathing and Birthdays

Well, my Uncle is doing much better. He was touch and go and still is in the woods so to speak. But the doctors are slowly removing the extra support systems as he is able to perform more functions on his own. He isn't conscious yet, but his eyelids are fluttering. I am almost able to breathe a sigh of relief. Oh alright, I will breathe a sigh. Ummm, better. I realize now I have been holding my breathe for days. And it sounds like the family is having a good get-together. They can be quite rascally.

A big shout out to my friend Sharon for her Happy Birthday !! Wish I could give you a big bushel of persimmons ! Hope it is nice in Florida for you today.

Taken to Heart

original collage of my own

We are waiting to find out more about the condition of my Uncle Marty who had a heart attack Monday p.m. in Colorado. He is a true beautiful blue aura man and I hope that all will be well. Other family members are grouping near from far corners to be there to share strength and love. Altho I can't be there, I would like him to know I've always thought he is so very special and that I adore him, even though we haven't seen each other for many years. My prayers are with you.

Hurray !

Finally I've manifested my long planned blog ! So very happy to do so after dilly-dallying such a long while. Can't wait to see what a great adventure this will be...
I have been Hedgerow Arts since the early 1990's when I started designing, sewing and selling children's clothing somewhat seriously. I have since branched out to include more forms of creative expression. Always have had the need to be creative, like air it is !
I found this great Marie/Halloween header to use for now here. It seems to fit my Hedgerow Arts somehow and also I am starting up this blog in October. I will be working on making my own unique header soon as I figure out how.
