Random flow...

With my love for elderly folks, I was quite happy to stumble upon this beauty. Isn't she sweet? Love the way she writes. And what an inspiration - she's wheelchair bound & still just as positive as the day is long. A lesson to all of us (me) when we start to whine. Can't wait to read more of her;

Back to work w/the 'new hair.' It's nothing drastic, just cut evenly blunt & flat-ironed. I love how easy it is & how much 'swing' it has. I look more 'up to date' now; I dumping all of my 'hair guinea pig crap' and sticking w/this stylist. I want it like this always. JCPenney salon - who knew?

Should've bought those bananas on the quick-sale rack & made banana smoothies;

The weekend was beautiful every day. The weather channel called it 'abundant sunshine.' Not one cloud in sight for 72 hours...

Am very thankful for my full day;
  1. Bible study in bed when I woke
  2. coffee on the porch & read paper
  3. pancakes & bacon for son & D
  4. watered w/watering can, then pulled out hose
  5. watered everything & sprayed down porch & patio
  6. marinated roast for dinner & put in crock pot w/onion & green peppers*
  7. washed collard greens; made w/cabbage, onion & green peppers**
  8. cleaned kitchen
  9. played around w/the camera (results to follow later)
  10. did a load of laundry
  11. cut son's hair
  12. sat on porch & patio & listened to the crickets
  13. actually made our lunches/set coffee pot/got clothes ready tonite**
*did get green peppers off quick sale rack
**this never happens

I was going to make these, but I didn't feel like turning the oven on & didn't want to run the air. I had a baking spell, found that website & these popped up first as 'easy.' I'll keep you posted;

I kept feeling like I should 'rush' for some reason throughout the day, but I consciously made myself slow down & be in each moment of what I was doing. Instead of thinking of what I was gonna do next, I took my time & focused on the moment. It made me 10x more calm...

There's an abandoned house behind me that will (hopefully) be torn down soon. I have dreams of being able to get the lot, fence it in & there goes my space for gardening & flowers that like LIGHT. And right in the middle will be the mighty willow! Prayers...

Speaking of elderly, Sat. I met a couple named 'Bob & Dottie." Dottie still wore her hair like she probably did when she started going w/Bob in 7th grade. Married 40 years, Bob's eyesight was nearly gone, so Dottie was his eyes. She was all of maybe 4'11 & had the most beautiful smile. They were still very clearly in love. I have their address & I'm sure will drop them a card.

Finally, I got my gift of jewels project all ready to ship offf. I hope it brings her joy; I love being a part of this. As I always say, Se'Lah is amazing.

Sweet story behind the elderly love picture. All that w/a pencil, huh? Amazing...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pencil drawing of the couple. I did go read about it and saw the original photo. Just lovely.

  2. Hey Girlfriend!! (LOL!) thanks for the kind words & thanks for coming by. Glad you ejoyed 'a day in the life of me' (LOL!). Come back anytime, old friend - the door's always open :-)
