a perfect frosty frame around barbara’s house this morning.
thanks for all the weather news about the PNW.
i imagine when i get older i want to live where i can see more stars at night. hear less city sounds.
a new adventure in 8-10 years to coincide with retirement.
i have to be on the west coast, close to ocean, forest, cool air.
santa barbara area is my first choice, but it’s too expensive.
extreme northern california is too rural. i need to be near a major metro area with a big airport.
can’t tolerate constant gray or constant drizzle & mist (as i hear portland has)
want a woodstove, except don’t want to burn wood – maybe those eco pellet thingy majingies.
maybe a houseboat is in my future. like sleepless in seattle.
it’s fun to dream.
my acacia is blooming!
shhhhhh…don’t tell moss cottage of my plans.
this morning i went car sketching. trying to get better at painting buildings in a non-fussy sort of way. i am drawing with a pen less and less. i just want to paint with watercolor & gouache. impressions. the pic came out blurry but i like it.
looking east from barbara’s house.
more acacia blooms.
who knows where i’ll wind up.
maybe in south america.
can’t wait till i get to my island in july. here’s a sneak peek of the house we’ve rented.
we’re gonna drink our morning coffee in these chairs. i wonder if mt. baker has snow in summer. one of you will tell me.
