You Don't See This Everyday

Yesterday, when we were out 'n' about following church and brunch we took a short drive to see if the daffodils were blooming at a nearby winery. Yes, they were starting to bloom but what really caught our attention was this "one of a kind" motorcycle in the parking lot.



I never have seen anything like this in the past.



The artistic skill was very impressive. I wonder what it would feel like to see this "animal" coming toward you on the roadway.  Just look at the size of those HORNS!

It was a very rainy day and the first day of daylight savings time. Things seemed a little "off-kilter" but these beautiful blossoms were very cheerful! I could sure use a good dose of sunshine.


I hope your week is starting off with lots of energy. I am working on it!

What An Interesting Piece Of Art



I think this art work by DC artist Rania Hassan is fabulous. I wish I could get it for my sewing room. It is so clever and unusual. Just what I like in my decorating.  Unfortunately, it is out of my price range.You can check it out on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22616007 and see what I mean. And, be sure and check out her profile. Such talent!

Speaking of knitting, even though I have been quite busy with life, I found time to do some easy, easy knitting on a Misti Chunky Ribs andRuffles scarf. The pattern is available on the internet. Actually, I have several projects in the works that are getting my attention. It just depends on my mood as to which one gets picked up. You know how we can waver from excitement to boredom with our creative/craft projects. I am also trying to give some time to my charity projects.







I hope you are enjoying the start of a new year. It is a little hard to realize that the first month of the new years is almost gone. From looking at other blogs, it appears that many, many new interesting projects are being started. It is so refreshing to start the new year. I hope your projects are going well.


The bonus today is that we have sunshine! It looks like it is going to stay for a while. After having much rain and snow here in the California foothills the sunshine feels delightful. My driveway and yard is a total mess with tree branches (some two inches in diameter) and leaves everywhere I look. Thankfully, none of the large trees presented a problem. Whenever we have storms, I never can avoid thinking about the two cedar trees in my yard that are cabled together for stability. See http://everydaydelight09.blogspot.com/2009/06/i-live-in-trees_26.html. They sway a lot but I feel a little reassured since the cabling was done.


That's it for today. Stay well.
