Hostas


Hostas. Late summer flowers in my friend's yard. I think they're pretty. Unusual, but pretty. And soon they will go away until the same time next year.

Boy how time flies. Whether you're having fun or not. I keep saying that, only because you have to decide if you want to have fun or not. I've decided to keep working on having fun. Yes, crappy things will always happen. Bills will always be due. Life is too short and you only get one shot. You can be hateful, spiteful, and miserable or you can find your happy. Help someone if you can, be a part of the wonderful solution instead of the problem. And if that's too daunting, work on you. I'm working on me. There are things I can't change. I can't make it rain out west where all the fires are happening. I wish I could, but I can't. And that's okay. I can send prayers and blessing to those wonderful men and women out there working hard to contain those fires.

One more week of this month. A few days ago, I wrote two letters to two different friends. Yep, I still hand write letters. I love it. I makes my friends happy when they get a handwritten letter from me in the mail instead of bills or junk mail. And it's a wonderful feeling to get mail from them. Especially after a rough day. News from someone who cares and thinks about me is great.

I did manage to straighten up my computer area and some of my sewing room. Already it's back to being messy again. That's okay. Shows that I'm working on things. I'm still working on my Bargello quilt and I've signed up for a workshop that will take place this Friday. I have lots of prep work to do.
The week is still young.

Be cool peeps!
