blues and greens

Am I the only one missing the colors of summer? This usually doesn't affect me too much but since we haven't seen the sun in I don't know how long I feel a little desperate to relish a warm, sunny day.

Many years ago I copied this Mother's Prayer into my journal, I am not sure who wrote it.
Dear Lord,
So far today I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or very indulgent. I'm very grateful for that. But in a few minutes, Lord, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on, I'm going to need a lot more help. Amen.

October has been a full month...and it's only half over!

My life is extreme right now, with Ken away there are always issues going on. I am trying not to use my blog as a podium for whining. At the same time I miss being creative and finding those short blocks of time to renew my spirit.

For the remainder of October I send happy wishes your way. Days filled with frosty mornings and sunny afternoons...and lots of Autumn colors.

Or you could buy pink slippers. I bought these here for $4.99- though these are from the kids dept.

Missed your blog posts lately. LOVE the poem. Keep your spirits up. The sun will shine soon, your smile will return, and you'll hear the laughter in your voice. Keep posting please. You make the sun shine on our darkest days!

I've heard that poem before and I love it. The sun hasn't shined here in 5 days. Supposedly we're to get some later this afternoon. My fingers are crossed! Cute slippers, btw :)

That poem is so funny, I'm going to send it to my friend who will love it too. Don't worry about have a whine, you are leading a demanding life and it probably doesn't feel like you are getting enough time for you. Hang in there sweetie, it will get better. At least you have your sense of humour! I hope lots of sunshine comes your way xo
