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, 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. Namaste’
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
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.
