Finding new things

Hi all, here I am for another day in my blog
Amazing I am here so soon again.
Well soon for me.
I was blogging around, which I like to do, and came across one blog I follow. who had just put in pics of some lovely Hydrangeas she had. I love Hydrangeas and all the colours they come in, so here is a pic I keep in my craft room.
It may not be as good as the ones seen on that blog, but they remind me of all the lovely Hydrangeas I have seen in my life time.
Flowers to me are great healers, and give great joy, and it is a marvel to me how they all come about.
When you see some colours and styles and shapes you can only marvel at the how and the why of flowers
Lifes a bit like that too.
When we know what we have done and seen, and been thru in life, we can only marvel at the how and why of it too.
Lives that have been so tragic and unyeilding, for people who have either been in such pain or lost loved ones or even been thru bad experiences to be able to come out the other side and learn to live a fulfilling and positve life is like the flowers a blossoming, only to be marveled at .
Yes Flowers are so positve.
You see a very small flower putting its head up between the cracks on a road or amongst the weeds. that is how I see life.
I too have had my bad experiences and when I look back see only that it all enhanced my character as to where I am today.
Those experiences will always be with us , but it is whether or not we rise above them all and go on to live a happy and creative life is whether we win, or the demons do.
So I have learnt to be very positive and put my head up thru the cracks and
Soar above it all ,
like a beautiful flower
basking in the sun.
Hey thats me, LOL basking in the Sunlight of my life. You can do that too.
Let all the demons go, and be positve like the flowers.
Lifes like that too, it will drag you down or elevate you.
The choice is yours
So everyone, I hope I am not sounding too much like a sermon, dont mean to. just want you to see what I see in life and try hard not to let it get to you.
Think of the flowers and the butterflies, how they show their glorious colours and styles, and Soar away to a great positive New Year

Hi all


I am lagging behind by not starting my blogging as quickly as some others.
Of course I have been reading all the great things that have been said and done already for the New Year even tho it is only a few days old.
I did have a lovely Christmas time when all went as planned. That is what I like.
when I say I am going to do something and it comes off as planned.
The flower pics are what I brought myself on my B/Day. One pic in my lounge to look at in the daytime and one pic when I took them into my B/room, to wake up to see them.
They put a smile on my face. I love yellow flowers, and to be able to buy yourself some lovely flowers is always a good thing, I think! You can click on to enlarge, you may even smell them, the power of suggestion is at home here!!
Yes I had one of those already this year, a B/Day, so on I go on the wrong end of the 70's , I cant believe it. No, maybe it is the good side, as I'm still here, in great health, and skitting around still wanting know and learn, taking great interest in everything I see on the Internet, a wonderful place to play.! Never lonely or bored with this G/Ma's Toy.!!

Kiddies have their dolls and fireengines I have my computer and computer friends ,
so life is good.
Now you know, and I'm sure you 'll give me some leaway when I make mistakes LOL, as I do have those Senior moments too!!
I am happy with my age, because you can look back on great memories, and great mistakes ?, We all make those, wouldn't be human if we didn't, but it is when we can acknowledge those mistakes and learn from them and go on to be able to live a nice life, have compassion for others, do good things and help where help is needed with grace and kindness.
I think Kindness to others is what the world needs so much of. Here in blogland we find that all the time., when we read a post and support others and when others support us and we know we are not alone. "No man is an Island" so they say and it is so true.
We all need support, and so when you have a problem it is better shared,
Another saying, "A problem shared is a problem halved"
So don't keep things to yourself.
We are all here for you.
So it is back to business for another year.A few things have popped their heads up already, and altho I havent got anything finished , I am working on some things.

Firstly am trying to keep my craft room tidy!"oh yes you may say", a great resolution, as I can get very untidy, and don't have to keep to this Res, as we never do, do we.
So that's what I like to make Resolutions I know I cant keep LOl, Funny!!!

I am awestruck by the people who have already done so much from day one of this year.
I can only conclude that if you are in a cold climate it is easier to work in, than when you live in a very warm climate, which makes you lethargic and more about sitting around waiting for the heat to break and not feeling like work.
Ah well there's always another day.
But with those B/day seeming even closer maybe not as many as you'd like Lol!
See you next post, when things might have changed for the better in the Craft room.
Maybe even some before and after pics Oh No!
May all things around you be
as they may.

I'm trying
