"Sure...I'll take some more chocolate," leaning forward with a rather burnt stick trying to stab another marshmallow on.
"We really have some talented women in our group don't we? I went fishing with my Dad when younger, even caught some frogs in a lake...ate them too! Only it seems when I was younger I could eat the legs and was convinced they tasted like chicken, just because everyone said they did...now I can't stand to look at them! Yuck! I wouldn't mind learning to fly fish...it might even seem sexy! But...I'm not sure I could handle the fish wiggling around and all that...someone would have to do that....and clean em too!
I think I'm doomed to eating Sushi already prepared and/or Salmon from Costco!
Hobbies??? I'm an artist myself. I've been a Faux Painter/Muralist and now I'm working of canvas size paintings in oil...mostly Portraits...love people...something about humanity and what and who we are, how we see and handle our lives, loves, philosophy. Sounds a little 'woowoo' but I am into the Universe and Metaphysical interests...touch therapy, science of mind and Deepak Chopra subjects. Spirit and connectivity. Meditation, Yoga and don't forget the power of 'CHOCOLATE' again! hee heee...!

How does this relate?

One of my favorite quotes:

"You make what seems like a simple choice: choose a man or a job or a neighborhood--and what you have chosen is not a man or a job or a neighborhood, but a life."---Jessamyn West

I have this quote taped up on my bathroom mirror among some others, but I've found that this quote is so very true for me... I grew up in the Midwest(KCMO) and left there for my job TWA airlines and was based in NYC then married a local guy there...when my whole beingness 'really' wanted to be in California where it's warm...so life happens, by our choices and we make so many choices without fully understanding the full consequences...so I made a life somewhere I really didn't intend to be...
Thankfully, I've had another life given to me, my last half of my life that I can create in the form I really choose it to be! I got my beach house, my painting career, my Bambi, my health, my daughters...and my friends....what else can someone ever want?

I'd love to hear everyone's story about how they got from there to here...???
Now I think I'm ready for that Bailey's if there's enough to share...

Debra

Sharon, great graphic! From Babee. . ."Meditation, Yoga and don't forget the power of 'CHOCOLATE' again! hee heee...!" This reminds me of something else I'd really like to practice if I could find a teacher: Tai Chi. Absolutely beautiful meditative movement. On a trip in San Fran, a group of us had hiked up to the heights of Grace Cathedral early one Saturday morning. There on the grounds surrounding the cathedral were clusters of practitioners of Tai Chi, taking their morning exercise/meditation. These totally self-absorbed performers were moving in the most graceful ways I've ever seen. Soon one small group began a procession along a sidewalk around the square in front of the church. We noticed that a few people joined in as they passed by, so very quietly another friend and I stepped in line behind, observed their quiet gestures and pace, and began to move along with them. In the words of the Mastercard ad: Priceless. This is my most personal memory of that great city. Also, in front of the Cathedral to the side of the doors is a great Labyrinth. We walked that too and I carry the grace of that experience with me too. So, I guess quiet meditative activity is also a component of the essential I of who I am. Anyone else out here practicing Yoga or Tai Chi who could bring this along to a rally, for some quiet moments early morning moments among the day's hilarious? ~G

I love yoga (but don't do it enough...somehow life gets in the way) and I agree about Tai Chi. It's gentle and fun and if you can let yourself go with it, it really is beautiful. I'm not sure I could teach it, but we could all fake it together. I can see us all with red polka dot bandanas, silver glistening in the background, doing Tai Chi...

Tai Chi...Yes! I took a ten week course for $350 while I was living in New York, and yup...real cool...more than real cool...One thing tho that I learned...there's like about 36 or more moves to learn to get thru the process and I learned only 12 in the 10 week course...so expect to learn it very slowly and be prepared to spend some big bucks to take lots of classes.
Geeee....I would really like to do it, it was alot of fun...and so cool when done in a group...especially if with complete strangers like in San Francisco at a park! Think Electric Slide X 10.....
More popcorn please!

Yes I am up for trying that! It looks so wonderful. I think that is one reason we all have our Airstreams to get out of the hectic rush of daily life. Then a nice hike and some down time for journaling or picture taking or painting then back here at the fire tomorrow night.

Sharon the theme is looking like it is falling right into place, lookin good.

I am really enjoying getting to know you all the better. Great thread Jamie!

*tosses a couple more logs on the fire and scoots over next to Debra hoping she'll share some of that chocolate...otherwise it may be a grab and run *

Sounds like we may need a week or two for our rally...so much to do, so little time! You can never get enough girl time or enough time to just relax.

Good morning silver sisters!!

Sretches - Stirs up the virtual fire and adds a couple of large logs.

I Shiver and wrap a wool tartan around my shoulders to ward off the chill on this bright sunny +20*f. moring. As I watch the birds coming to the feeders I wrap my hands around a cup of steaming hot cocoa.

Cardinals, chickadees, juncos, a pair (male and femal) of red bellied wood peckers, blue jays, house finches, both white and red breasted nuthatches, titmice, house sparrows and LOTS of fat mourning doves. Hmm I half expect the Coopers Hawk to come take her breakfast from among the fat doves, it has happend before. As long as the hawk does not take the red bellied woodpecker she is welcome to feed at the bird feeders. Of course I have no say in her choice. I watched a male Cardinal have a very close call with the hawk one summer day.

Earlier this winter when I investigated a loud bang that I knew was a bird hit on a sunroom window I found the female red bellied head down in the snow bleedingfrom her mouth. I turned her over so she was not on her back, brought her inside, and held her quietly between my hands to warm her up and fight the shock she was suffering. It took a couple of hours or more but she eventually recovered and when I released her I gladly watched her fly strongly away into the red cedars in the hedge row. I was not sure if she had truly survived but I have seen her several times now with her mate and am gratified that this year the male did not loose his mate on the window like he did last year.

What a glorious winter moring - but I am glad to be INSIDE looking out

....Stoking fire......so that is where all our birds have gone for the day - MI. Must go out and fill the feeders - smart little critters they are - going where the food and fun is.

As mentioned we are going on a road trip SOON. Carol does not know this yet but she gave me an Idea!

What about an RVF Luncheon?? What the heck is this gal talking about you say.....

RIVETTE VALENTINE FLING - open to of course Rivettes but DUDETTES (Yep guys that would be you) and the RIPPLETTES ( as I just mentioned to Tin Sista in a PM this would be referring to the little refelctions of their parents like ripples in the water.)

Okay to the point - We are traveling through MI and IN hopefully during a 4 day flash in the pan in and out so to speak. I will be in dire need of some Rievette Vibes to get me through the rest of the winter.

So instead of everyone trying to hook up in all different places - what a bout a (Carols idea) Valentine Fling - possibly the only time the fellows would be most welcome And those with kiddies won't want to miss out either.

I can see a Restaurant somewhere??? with a booking of x - x time frame and one or many show up - this restaurant is located at or very neat to a "resting" place hotel or motel or something hmmmm talk to Carol on that score. I'm thinking a Saturday so that those who work can enjoy - afternoon so those with children can have fun too and the stay over so those Rivettes who like to GAB can go all night long - and let the Hubbies doing the driving home.

Putting the idea out there - not much time to get anything too fancy arranged but the whole point is I have no clue what's available. But I do know that our furthest point is Lowell IN - Lake County and hopefully we will be there on the Friday am thus leaving us the Saturday to hook up with the Sistas and families. Get the overnight in and use the Sunday for the Travel day home - need about 9 hours from the Mid way point (between IN & MI) to get home.

so anyone in for a Rivette Valentine Fling - the non-virtual kind?

Ha ha you funny girl - I will once I stop in to see the gals in California. So it might be late Sunday

Ooohhhh Annie have to don the winter clothes and get too on the driveway have about 4-5 inches I have not cleared and don't want the ruts in the drive - have to keep the snow cleared off MoonBeam too as we start to think about moving her for her last ride with us .


Keep your eye out for an old wood plane propellor for me on your "dumpster diving" trips.... Can you believe this Annie - all these crazy Americans love junk TOO and here I thought we would not fit in with the crowd. I'm heading to an auction with Barb tonight I think - we need a junk fix or some sort of fix!!

LOVE the Rivette-r decor scheme!! And glad there's a caravan of you gals headed to my warm state of CA for Valentines, it's so thoughtful!!

As to the topic of dumpster-diving... I NEVER pass up a free piece o' %$#*, as hubby affectionately calls my finds, (till I tweak them). But the dumpster girl in me started way back when I was around 8. My step-sister and I were living in Idaho and spending the days outside mostly, and many of them in the neighborhood dumpster. We found many things to decorate our dog, bikes and wagon and had many parades. But one day we found a kitten (probably the neighbor's) that we tried our hand at caring for... the best food we found in that dumpster was bananas, so she left us... but it sure was fun!!

Speaking of free.. we once rode our bikes to the cemetery and collected all those free fake flowers people just leave everywhere...

It's Love, Sister Love, say

Sister Love's Traveling Salvaging Show

Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies

And ev'ryone goes, 'cause everyone knows

Sister Love shows.



Coming to a location near you. Share that Valentine's love.

(OK may need to do some fast figuring here gals, any ideas?)

Nancy what a gorgeous morning you just shared, must be the morning meditation and exercise we did, or was it all that chocolate we cleared out from Sharon's fridge last night when everyone else was sleeping.
