Hunky Dory at 65/Diversions...Reading and Crosswords

First in a series
all about me at 65

Crossword Puzzles
Armchair Travel

This would be a dream spot to read. I love anything tropical and these things evoke that feeling...leafy wallpaper, rattan furniture, sunshine.

And when I read I like a dictionary close by. Art, another love.

Art book
Bird book

Shelves loaded with cool things.

Horse sculpture made by my son.

My husband's high school senior photo.

Photo of my son, stepdaughter, and husband.

A paint palette my Mom had made since my son is an artist.

Crossword puzzle and COFFEE, though I like mine with milk in it.

Cushy pillows on the floor.

Gotta have these.

And I strive to be nice just like the pillow says.

The Little Menagerie

Days are busy when you have a little menagerie. Not only do you have the indoor crew, but others are waiting at the door.

New ones in baskets.

Medium ones on a leash.

Getting into things.

They do have intelligent creatures...very well read.

Better have some resource material.

Look who's outside!

No room inside, but there is food for them on the porch.

The idea for this came from my son, Will. We were starting to collect lots of little animals and they were just too cute not to use in a scene. Will gave me the Playmobil mother bunny and the basket the rat is in for my birthday....that made the scene imperative. Also, it is he that put the bunny by the front door...also the Playmobil unicorn.
