No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

Oh My - I'm Addicted

"My first word of advice is this, Say yes. In fact, say yes as often as you can. Saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to new experiences, and new experiences will lead to knowledge and wisdom. Yes is for young people, and an attitude of yes is how you will be able to go forward in these uncertain times."- Michael Hogan

Little did I know that a little gadget, the mp3 player, could take over my life.

But I am talking about being addicted. I plan to download ONE song. Before I know it, I have found another favorite; I load that to the cue. I'm at a new page, and "oh there's another song I cannot live without." So the list grows.

It's not entirely the players fault; my L-top is not that new. The fact that I can load up the cue of all the songs I want to be converted and then to do so, my L-top slows way down. The slowing down is what is taking so much time.

Before I know it I have 20 songs to download. That my friends, is going overboard. Have I gotten anything done in the house? No. I at least have gone for my walk except for yesterday.

I wasn't feeling well yesterday. I have several nights of not so good dreams and I wake up fussy. Then I have had several days of being busy outside of the apartment and dealing with other people. To put it bluntly, I am not a happy person and I'm grouchy at Michael which I hate to be. I'm very lucky he understands and lets me have my space.

Today when I woke up, I'm feeling in a better place. I'm not grouchy and I did go walking. Michael chose to stay in to sleep.

Friday when we went to the food bank they had a couple of buckets of bouquets. I had not planned to take one because usually they last about a day or two and then die. To me it is not worth the trouble.

As we were leaving, a friend inquired if I wanted to have her bouquet because she realized she still had some at home from a wedding she attended. I said yes. When will I learn to say now but this time I'm glad I didn't.

When we arrived home something came over me and instead of putting the flowers in one vase; I trimmed them and made up five different bouquets. They make the house so cheery. Michael says it's my creativity coming out and he is glad to see this. Even he likes where I have placed the vases.

Here I shall share them with you:

this is my tranquility corner

Blue bottle with flower 10 28 12_0001

This is the dining room table bouquet, a blue bottle and my biker cow salt and pepper shaker - Does anyone know what this flower is?

Bedside posies 10 28 12_0001

Bedside posies in the company of my smiling Buddha

Bathroom posies 10 27 12

Small carnation 10 28 12_0001

Even skulls like flowers in a bud vase

Have a great day everyone; and, those of you on the East Coast, take care with this storm. You are all in my prayers.
