Lucky

I'm getting ready to head out for my morning walk but I wanted to thank you first for being so good to me.


I'm enjoying the birds, the starlings in the sycamore, their microcosm. They snack on mistletoe berries and make cony island sounds eeeeee, thundering down the wooden roller coaster, wolf whistles, hey baby. How could anyone keep from smiling in the company of birds?


I like to start my day with deer whenever possible, a dose of deer is always good medicine.


I like walking alone but never feel like I really am, in the company of a good dog.
(she knows all my secrets and never tells)



I bought a book once that categorized this particular phacelia as a weed and its sister species as a wildflower.......

Life has never been fair, that's not to say it isn't good but fairness, no.




But I'm feeling lucky, the harder I work the luckier I get! My etsy sales hit 777 on the 7th, they really did! Thank you all for making me feel so lucky, for your support and friendship, for allowing me to do just what it is I enjoy doing.

With appreciation, xoxo Ro

  1. Good morning Ro,

    It's only natural that you have done so well on etsy...You work is stunning!

    I enjoyed you "Muleskinner" story the other day. I was right there with you on the journey.

    Thank you for always being a bright spot in my day through your beautiful blog posts.

    1. Hello Cinder,

      I don't usually talk about sales here, it isn't really my style but the 7's humm must have been all those horse and mule shoes :)

      Thanks for driving out to the desert with us...

      You are always a bright spot too, keep on shining!

  3. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!!! GOOD FOR YOU!!!!! I'd say that's one LUCKY sales statistic, all right.

    Must be Belle's charming personality. Or Churro's commitment to hauling fragile cargo? Banjo's faithful presence along your own trail?

    Or it could be the way you recreate your visions of the world in silver and stone.... so happy for you, dear woman, so happy.

    (Happy for me, too, that I can lay claim a few of those 777!)

  4. Ohhhhh, and you are SO right about phacelia...simply NOT fair, and there you go. But the blossoms of ANY phacelia are so rich in beauty.

  7. Congratulations Ro-bird!!!!! You ARE a lucky girl! We all have so many things to feel lucky about, really. Don't you agree?

    Will you shoot for 888 sales on the 8th, and 999 sales on the 9th?? Lofty goals, indeed!

    It's a tough job that all of us have to do -- getting you to such goals.......



    NOT!
