Negotiator - SOLD

Now I'm hoping that someone would notice the slight twist of the left arm because she's 'negotiating' through very busy traffic.  But just in case you didn't, I thought I'd point that out cause I think that one gesture makes it all the more readable, believable.  She's got everything she needs in her pack and no doubt she is being 'green'.  I personally LOVE my bicycle.  A shout out to Frisbee's Bicycle Shop here in our little town to owner Barbara who really hooked me up.  No strain whatsoever on my wrists, this was a big deal if I were going to go any distance worth noting.  Plus my back doesn't hurt.  Glad bikes have come so far along that they're actually comfortable.  Love it and glad to be back in the saddle.

This was one of the best Papayas I've ever tasted.  Sweet, perfectly ripe and messy.  Just the way I like it.  I love summer fruit, but tropical fruit reigns queen of the taste buds...  Looking forward to delights such as this through the entire upcoming summer.  Love that there are fresh produce markets on the sides of the roads all over California.

Funbrellas - SOLD

I cannot even tell you how long I've had these little umbrellas - oh wait, yes I can.  They came from our first trip to Hawaii.  I don't save every little thing, but I did bring them back cause they are just plain fun.  The little red one was injured and does not stay open, alas!  But the blue one was sitting pretty in this little aperitif/vodka shot glass which I love to use for single flowers that I gather from anyplace, anywhere, anytime.  I love live flowers.  Flowers from a garden are just different from hothouse flowers.  Even roses that are hybrid (you know the ones you get for Valentine's Day) have lost their magnificent smell.  Not the one's that are, shall we say, homegrown.  Yup, Spring is in the air and I am so there!

Surfers - SOLD

Surfers, California......  naturally.

These three just came out of the surf with an entirely new attitude - happy and fit as well.  You have to love the weather in Cali.  It's difficult to get down when the sun is shining.  Brilliant!
