When my eyes opened yesterday morning this is what I saw.  Before I got up I snapped this with the phone.  My world is truly amazing.  It really is.  Do you know the Paul Simon song "Born at the Right Time"?  That's me.  I know we do make our own luck but I seem to, for some reason, have more than my share.  I am very thankful for it too.  I do not take one single day for granted.  I try to live each one to the fullest.

Take yesterday, I went to the pool and had a good time exercising, sat there a bit while waiting to dry, then came up and showered and had a nap.  Then I was thinking about what I could do with the rest of my day.  I didn't want to waste it.  Well I certainly could go into that cavern of evil I lovingly call a closet and spend many hours but no, that didn't interest me.  I could do the same with my pantry but again, no interest there either.

So what exactly did I do you want to know?  Well I'll tell you.  I played around in beads.  I didn't make anything but I got some things done with them.  They, like my closet, are totally out of control.  I must have enough beads to fill a bathtub.  So many little treasures just waiting for my fingers to turn them into something wonderful to wear.  And still I don't.  It is what I did when Sarge was sick and I loved it, it kept me busy sitting next to him but now I can't seem to make anything.  Strange?  Yes.

Have a wonderful Sunday y'all.  I shall be with the duck so mine will be wonderful!


  1. Bee-utiful painted sky!! I was just saying to my sister Janice yesterday that I haven't painted in months, unless you count the outside of the house. :) Today I shall be painting ... walls inside the house, unless life happens and changes my plans. Isn't it lovely when that happens?

    Enjoy the day with OCD! big hugs xoxo

  2. Yes Bee, I agree with you but at the same time you as that person made your life that you created more positive for yourself and others. It's not really luck, it's the person themselves and you my wonderful friend has it and in the process, help other get it, like me. You deserve all that you get in this life because you make it that way. Boy do I sound brilliant don't I? ha,ha,ha. That's enough of my brilliance today. Have a wonderful Sunday you gorgeous friend. See ya.


  3. That's a lovely shot of the morning sky indeed. Does Roche appreciate it too or is he too busy grooming?

    You'll do what you want to do when you want to. It's the way of things.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥

  4. Bee, You look for your blessings everyday and appreciate them...that's you way. I know what you mean about your beads. Maybe you could start making a bracelet for each of your game friends. , for Christmas gifts. Just one at a time. I have lost interest in many things I use to be crazy to work on. I know many people do that. I truly can't explain it. I just try to do a thing here and as not to turn into a lump. LOL. Bless you,xoxo,Susie

  5. Bee that is a beautiful view to wake up too. You're a fortunate woman! So many treasures in life to hold a grateful heart in,and you are the just the person who does so. You inspirational.

  6. Certainly is a beautiful sky...and life. Yes, you make the most out of it, just as you should.

    Big hugs, honey...

  7. Maybe beading just reminds you of a tough time. Maybe you could do something else with them, like glue them onto stuff like a mosaic. Xoxo

  8. My husband gets so angry with me when I tell him how I feel so lucky. He says that we worked very hard for where we are and what we do and have. I have no doubt that is true of you, too. But it's my experience that a little gratitude never hurts. I always thought that beading was something that got you through a hard time. But I wouldn't mind if you made me a little something as beautiful as the others stuff you sent me...
