This happy traveling star came from Christy in Charlotte, NC. A beautiful batik or hand dyed fabric with the appliqued star and stitched tails.
This wonderful card is from Kristi in Traverse City, MI. I love the dancing or joyful figure fused onto the gorgeous blue batik fabric. You can't really see the little beads she put in the center of each flower. AND, they made it through the postal system. YAYAYAY
Thank you ladies for sending me such beautiful, creative postcards. They are like little works of art. I just love them.
Today, I'm feeling a tad better now that I'm upright and thank the goddess still above ground. My nose is still running, like a little kids. I sneezed in the store this morning and a gentleman said, "Thank you." Since normally I expect to hear God Bless You I was a little surprised and turned to look at him. He told me he was thanking me for sneezing into my chest.
I turned away thinking, Men, it's always about them.
Remember, I still glare at Zeus for giving me this sinus infection/flu bug.
I had to give Murphy his ear drops this morning and after yesterday's episode, where I yelled at him for sneaking out of the studio with my flip flop and chewing it to bits, he was very docile about getting the drops. The cap slid down into the sofa and I had to take the sofa cushions off to get it.
Oh, Lordy, I know my interest in housekeeping has waned over the years but apparently it's really slid off the meter when it comes to cleaning under the sofa cushions. I found one old rawhide bone which Murphy was happy to see, $9.72 in change, assorted pony tail holders, two shop pencils, strange bolts, washers and other workshop like items and a couple of mushed soda crackers. Murphy and I got out the shop vac and cleaned it all up.
Finders keepers on the change and the rest of the "found" items can be rescued from the top of the dryer, if you are interested and YOU know who you are.
I picked up some hot and sour soup for lunch. If I can't have Indian fare this is my second choice for clearing a stuffy head. I told the young man at the drive through window I was sick and he threw in two fortune cookies for me.
SOMEONE IS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU
YOU ARE A GOOD INFLUENCE ON OTHERS
Made me smile, they did.
It's going to rain and we could use a good soaking. I can see my plums have gotten darker and I can actually see them hanging from the tree from my chair here at the computer. I think I will just enjoy them this year.
Last year, in my quest to be Susie Homemaker Revisited I made Plum jam.
When the jars had cooled you couldn't get a knife into the jam it was so thick and hard. But, they did look pretty on the window sill.
I'm going back to bed. Thank you for sending healthy thoughts my way and I hope I'm a good influence..............so go create something today and make your soul happy. :)Bea
