Pssst... over here :-)

Hey folks! I'm still here. Got so much going on in my mind that I couldn't get my thoughts together enough to put down anything. Here are few random thoughts & pics...

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you
Nathaniel Hawthorne

This beauty lighted right in front of me while I was outside one day. He offered me some flowers for my hair. I obliged... :-)

These are a peony & iris from mom's yard. They're gone now, but they were beautiful when they had their moment. I know it shadow-y, but I like the light;

Books, books & more books. WHY I ask you, am I trying to read 3 @ once? I get so overwhelmed when I go to the library - I want everything! I've been on the waiting list to read "The Help" & screamed when I saw it; had no idea it was such a big book. It's on 'book express' (2 weeks - no renewals), so there's no way I'll be able to tackle it. With so many distractions, I haven't devoted mysef to read-time like I should so....

Same for "Lemon Cake." It's not a large book & so far it is so interesting. It's about a young girl who can taste other folks emotions through food. It's not on 'express' so renewal is possible...

"Styles by Maggie Sweet' is just a super cute paper back that I couldn't resist. I need to dedicate a day to reading only...

This is a bookmark I got from the library that I 'texturized' to make look ancient. Love the look & love the saying...

And finally - I picked up four cute little 'window mirrors' @ a yard sale because they were adorable. Story of my life - now what to do w/em? An idea will come one day. If you buy it, an idea will come... :-)

Lastly, my boss bought me flowers!! I must be doing something right, huh? :-)


  1. When you return "the help", just put yourself back on the list. You'll have to wait a bit, but if it's good, it should be worth it. By the way, let me know how you like it. I've been tempted to read that one too.

    Love the flowers. All of them. :)

  2. Hey Sharon - good idea on the book. I'm sure once I put it down, it'll get snatched up & move on to the next person. sometimes if I can catch the 'right' (or wrong - ha!) person, they'll sneak & renew it for me if I beg hard enuff. Digging out my begging hat right now! I'll let you know how it goes; right now I'm on the 4th Chapter & I can't put it down!!!



Seriously? Day 24? Lol. Sometimes I don't know why I bother with these prompts. 😕 "Inspiring Movie": I loved this one . ...
