Hiding in Plain Sight

The other day as I was looking for the dust pan, I found this hiding in the utility holder.  He’s a cute yard decoration that we had out in front for Halloween.  For me, Halloween seems eons ago, so I can’t remember why I didn’t put him away.  But he looks pretty happy where he is, doesn’t he?  Maybe I’ll just let him stay there and when I get the broom or a mop, I’ll smile.  I hope you do, too.  Namaste’




If You Were a Crayon …

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?  Feel free to comment below.  As for me, I would be Dandelion.

Today’s photo is because I love crayons.  Always have.  School supplies are already in the stores and so I bought myself a new box of 24 crayons.  I have tons of colored pencils and I use them, too, but there’s nothing like the feel and smell of a new box of crayons.  Go buy yourself and box and see what I mean.  See if a ton of childhood memories don’t come flooding in when you get a whiff of those wonderful wax sticks.  Below are some really cool quotes that I found about crayons.

I consider myself a crayon…I might not be your favorite color, but one day you’re going to need me to complete your picture … ~Anonymous

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.  A happiness weapon.  A beauty bomb.  And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.  It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air.  Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas.  And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight.  Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.  With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.  And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.  ~Robert Fulghum

Life is about using the whole box of crayons.  ~RuPaul

If you want an interesting party sometime, combine cocktails and a fresh box of crayons for everyone. ~Robert Fulghum 

And my very favorite …

Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling. ~G.K. Chesterton

Sunday Soul Collage

Today’s photo is a collage of some of my faves.  Having a gazillion (OK, a slight exaggeration) photos on my computer can sometimes lend itself to some creativity, so here’s my Sunday Soul Collage.  Some of these I took long before I started the 366 project.

WS and I went out to dinner and we both blew our new eating plan all to hell.  He had Veal Piccata and I had the Chef’s special pasta, bread & butter, and a fabulous glass of Merlot …. mmm … to die for!  We won’t even talk about dessert; I’m not fessin’ up to that!  But I have to say it was good for the soul.  Back to normal eating plan tomorrow.
