Look who's waking up!
Along a garden wall by my room, one of my most amazing coworkers has this garden... and the African
Daisies are just popping up, stretching and yawning and sunning their beautifully sweet, golden faces towards the sun!! I can't resist them! So I grabbed my camera and hopped up on the wall to get this shot.
They bring me joy!
I'm also partial to the title 'Fields of Gold'... you know the song by Sting.. ? To me, it is the most beautiful love song of all... I remember one time...driving from Cordes Junction into Prescott Valley... a friend with me... we were on a road trip for the day. This song came on the cd and I just began to cry... then weep. She wondered if I was ok, and I said I was... but my heart was longing for what the song embodied... Despite that moment, I am able to love the song for what is says...
These little cups of sun are my gift to you this day...

It's been a beautiful day.... billows of all shades of grey swirling above... tulle tu-tu's of white spinning across now and then.... breathes blowing the dead off of frozen trees... and fresh drops plunking down now and then... at their whimsy....

I took a step of faith today....
despite a horrible car repair bill...
a leaky toilet getting fixed...
and everyday life bills....
I took a class today at Ink It!
I've wanted to take one for sooo long from super talented gal, Liz Eaton, a class on how to make soldered glass slide charms. I've been intrigued by these little gems since falling in love with Sally Jean's charms! The class was offered last month, and as tempted as I was, I just didn't feel that I could spend the money.

Yes, I do choose JOY!
Oh, and a bout with the flu this week, too...
I CHOOSE JOY!!
*what the hell was Henry Miller smoking when he wrote 'Tropic of Capricorn' ?!?!
*Oprah is on right now talking about 'the secret'... which apparently is that our thoughts attract what happens to us... apparently there is a law of the universe; what you focus on expands...
...if that's true, I'm going to quit thinking about my waist
*can you smell it ?? spring is in the air... oh yeah....
*I must say that I outdid myself with my cream pasta sauce last night...best-to-date
*5 things that I am grateful for tonight: my health, my children, my family of friends, my job, the ability to get up tomorrow morning and live my life one more day
what are you grateful for ... right now.... what are 5 things that you are grateful for?
