Angry Food

Apparently I'm not the only one whose food comes alive and doesn't want to be eaten. Surfing the 'net looking for something NOT food related, this surfaced:

"Eat me and you will die!!!"


My food was a little more friendly in its request:

"Hi. Please don't eat me."
If any religious icons show up, I'm screwed....

It Will Come

“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.” -Howard Thurman 

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." -Howard Thurman.

Little Blue Boxes

My birthday is 1 month from today.
Nope, nothing I can do about it--it's coming, like it or not.

I guess I need to make a plan to celebrate since it falls on a Saturday and one of my friends already let me know she booked a babysitter---trust me, this is a big deal because she never gets a sitter much less one so far in advance. I guess I'm expected to make a plan. I was hoping something fun like Vegas or the Bahamas, but sometimes life doesn't cooperate, so local it will be. Bummer, right?

Anyway, I think I will need to treat myself to another little blue box this birthday, because, well, little blue boxes help ease birthday blues. I'm pretty sure there are statistics on this fact. :)

I'm thinking a Tiffany Key pendant or two, on a long Beaded chain:

Or maybe a Tiffany Notes pendant:

Or a Tiffany Crown charm on a silver chain to remind me that I don't really want to be the queen, but a princess is just fine. :)

Or a Tiffany Twist Bow Ring...
....a string tied around the finger to remind me of.... being.... fabulous??  ;)
Hmmm...their rings run a little small...think I'd need a size 7....

Not sure.... but thinking about shopping is sure easier than party planning....

Dreaming of Summer

With all the rain we had last month, April showers had BETTER bring May flowers and not more rain or we'll float away....

I'm Dreaming of Summer pretties....some of my favorite flowers. :)

pink Peonies

(Smell so good! We had a bunch of them in our backyard when I was growing up) 

Gerbera Daisies

Gerbera Daisies, in bright Crayola colors!
(They make me laugh they're so over-sized and happy)
They come in shades of purple and blue too!

Lilly of the Valley
Lilly of the Valley
(These were by our front door when I was a little girl and the smell of them still makes me happy.)

Lilacs, in purple


(Every house I've ever lived in has had a Lilac bush. When I was little I would cut them and put a bow around the stems and take them to my great-grandmother :)


Roses in any shade of pink. All roses are pretty, but pink is my favorite!

(AND it's my birthday month flower!!: June) 


(A flower that is even beautiful in basic white!)

Dahlia pale pretty peach and yellow color combinations! :)

<---White ranunculus with little blue flowers but I don't know what they are....

Purple lilacs with white and pink peonies. I bet this bouquet smells like a warm summer day....  ----->
