and John is still snoring
John yells out - What are you doing thumping up and down the stairs?
Suzan says - I DON'T thump - I gently ran downstairs to take a picture of the sky - you have to see this - it's just magnificent
John says - What time is it?
Suzan says - It's 4.56
John says - WHAT???????????????????
John says - you ran out in your nightgown at 5 in the morning to take photos?
Suzan says - Yes - because within minutes it vanishes
Suzan says - You see, now you've missed it................
John says - I'll take your word for it......................
John says - And the next time I see you snoring away with your gob wide open I'm going to run around the house moving furniture and running in and out with the back door slamming - and
Suzan interrupts - You really should start a blog you know.
I do not snore -
I do not have a gob - I have a mouth - and it remains closed when I sleep
I'm pretty sure about that.
The lilacs are starting to bloom
love the color of this one !
especially as it tucks into the old ladder
Does anyone know what type of tree this is? They look like miniature pom poms !
I received a package in the mail last week from Kris at Junk Chic Cottage - I'm sure you all know who I'm talking about - the Queen of Shabby? If you don't know her - please do yourself a favor and drop in for a visit - be prepared to be there awhile because her blog is as bad as pinterest ( you all know I mean that as the ultimate compliment, right? ) Shabby chic perfection !!!
Here's what she sent me !!!
This is the prettiest whimsical tote - and it's MINE !!!
Kris said it made her think of Soda & I - Soda's holding my paintbrush for me - how adorable !!!
There's writing on the inside - it reads..................
and that's not all - OMG - that's not all - look what she put in that package !!!
Oh Kris - I can't tell you how thrilled and touched I was by this over the top generous gift
John says - Why do people keep sending you presents?
John says - AND WHY DO YOU CRY EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY DO?
Suzan says - clutching a paintbrush like a microphone - BECAUSE, JOHN " They like me - They really really like me !!! "
( I don't have to explain that line, do I lol ? )
Blogging has been a blessing that was bestowed upon me - plain and simple - the friendships made - the laughter shared - the inspiration gained - I can think of no other word than what it is - a blessing.
And precious gifts from afar........................
Some days you could almost burst with happiness - and you think to yourself
What a wonderful world.
