Kevin and I saw the musical “Rock of Ages” at the Casa Mañana in Fort Worth, last night. It was very refreshing listening to songs, we used to know every word of the lyrics back when we were teenagers. Surprisingly, I found out right inside the theater, that we got seats in the first row. We were so close to the stage, that “Stacee Jaxx” couldn’t resist flipping a thong in my face. I kept the thong as a souvenir. 😀 😉
Overall, the show was awesome. We had an amazing evening, enjoying great music on a Saturday evening. Kevin and I definitely have to repeat that. ❤

Kevin and I had a good time at the Casa Mañana.
This weekend I spend most of the time planning, washing laundry, what to pack, food, which roads we are taking up to the Great Lakes. After meeting with some ol’ school friends along the road, we will do another item from my bucket list, which is visiting NYC. Before we hit back home, we poke our head in to see family in North Carolina. I will take a break from blogging for these travel days. And when I’m back, I’ll write a “journal” of this trip, with photos attached, of course. 😉 But until then, I still stick around for a few days.
Ready to do some finishing touches for this up coming road trip
Strawberry Full Moon (06-09-2017)
Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, Strong Sun Moon
The leaves on the trees have returned, making the world a lush green. The frantic Spring energy has been replaced by a lazy Summer breeze. The animals go about raising their young as food becomes plentiful.
The June Full Moon is about our dreams and inner visions. The Summer energy calls us to explore, to visit the deep parts of the forest, to listen and connect with our inner voice. It’s a good time to start a dream journal or create art.
The fairies like our garden so much, they sent out the kobold to grow some mushrooms for the garden. Sara was happy, that Mrs. Rabbit pointed the mushrooms out to her. I told Sara, that the kobold must have been very busy taking good care of the mushrooms. Now, she’s waiting for the kobold to grow more mushrooms around the fairy house. 😉 But for the mushrooms to grow, we need a little bit more rain.
The kobold added some mushrooms in our garden.
Since it is Summer time, it’s also vacation time. My family and I use to travel a lot all over the U.S. But we can’t always make it to the beach. Therefore I make sure, we have a little bit of beach flair in our house during Summer Break. The shells come out of the boxes, and I start to be “artsy & crafty”. With some flower pots, candles, paint, shells & glue a lot of cool beach designs can be done. Here are a couple of ideas, I did in the past. And Mr. Pelican approves it.
A shell flower pot I made three years, ago. A pineapple plant is growing in it.

Every so often, I have to pull some carrots. From sowing them directly into the vegetable raised bed, they usually grow too close together. And therefore I have to thin them out to get bigger carrots. The girls like the smaller ones. Because they are easier to bite and to eat.
Hmm, yummy carrots from the vegetable garden
Yep, we’ve got Calendula and Morning Glory blooming in the garden. I planted quite a few Calendula from seed early on this year. They suppose to keep the tomato worm at bay. The same I did with the Morning Glory. I wrap the vines around the top of the chicken wire. This is my first year, I have Morning Glory. And in the photo is my fourth blossom. I call this a success.
The Morning Glory is coming along very well for the first year.
