Coral Roses – May 27th


These lovely coral roses were in the courtyard of our local art museum. They are just stunning, I mean stunning! We had a rainy day when I snapped this photo and so there are these beautiful waterdrops on the roses which kind of add a sparkle. Out in this courtyard is a fountain and I save some beetle out of the fountain, they were just floating in there, little legs trying to swim and I just couldn’t leave them in there. So I found a leaf and got them out of the water. They seemed quite grateful to be out of the water. So I guess I can add bug rescue to my many different skills.

Have a blessed day!

The Rivals – September 3rd


The Rivals by James Stephens

I heard a bird at dawn
Singing sweetly on a tree,
That the dew was on the lawn,
And the wind was on the lea;
But it didn’t listen to him,
For he didn’t sing to me.

I didn’t listen to him,
For he didn’t sing to me
That the dew was on the lawn
And the wind was on the lea!
I was singing at the time,
Just as pretty as he!

I was singing all the time,
Just as pretty as he,
About the dew upon the lawn,
And the wind upon the lea!
So I didn’t listen to him
As he sang upon a tree!

Happy Friday – August 9th


It’s Friday and its not raining! I actually can see slivers of sun through the clouds. But as I sit here and pack more and more I am actually starting to look forward to the move and to having so much more space. But I never realized how much stuff you accumulate after living in one place for a while. As long as it doesn’t rain. It’s an interesting season, I have several friends that are in the same season of life I am in moving to new places, both locally and across the country. I look forward to hearing about the new adventures that are happening in their lives and getting to share about my new adventures too.
I hope for all of you that it is a blessed Friday and that you have an even greater weekend! May it be filled with all that August brings! Do something fun, get out there and enjoy some time without the worries that so want to weigh us all down. I know I will!

Have a blessed day!

Rain Drops of Pink Roses – August 8th


Rain, rain go away,
Come again another day.

I can remember singing this as a child every time it would rain on a weekend. Mostly because I wanted to be able to go out and play. I guess I never realized how long ago it was written, sometime in the 17th century or earlier. Just imagine how many people have sung this little nursery rhyme over its many years.
But seriously, we need the rain to stop for a couple of days so everything can dry out just a little bit. And because I am tired of waking up to the gloomy grey skies.

Have a blessed day!

Hold Fast Your Dreams – June 10th


Hold Fast Your Dreams by Louise Driscoll

Hold fast your dreams!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And sheltered so,
May thrive and grow-
Where doubt and fear are not.
Oh, keep a place apart
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go.

A Little Song Of Life – June 7th


A Little Song Of Life by Lizette Woodworth Reese

Glad that I live am I;
That the sky is blue;
Glad for the country lanes,
And the fall of dew.

After the sun the rain,
After the rain the sun;
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.

All that we need to do,
Be we low or high,
Is to see that we grow
Nearer the sky.
