You're Starting To Make My Husband Wonder What I'm Doing On This Blog!!!

      Let me start out today's post by saying: "I get it!" What I mean is that I know that me going on and on, and gushing about my husband, my friends, and things I've bought or received, is not the most fascinating thing in the world for you to be stopping by to read every day!! Really!! I get it!!
      In fact, I get sick of myself sometimes!! ^_^ But that's why I love blogging so much! Because no matter how much I go on, you guys...and girls...are absolutely wonderful about, not only coming by to read it and tell me what you think, but lately some of you have my husband wondering:"What are you doing on that blog anyway!!" LOL
      So to all of you...every single one of you!...who read my blog on some kind of regular basis; who share your experiences; leave the funniest, most informative, and sometimes thought-provoking and helpful comments; some of you who read, but don't comment; and some who comment, but not here on the blog, but leave me wonderful messages of encouragement and insight either on Facebook or on Twitter...this blog post is for you!!!!!.....Consider yourself affectionately kissed on the cheek, and hugged by a substantially squishy Wug!! ^_^
     (ohhellodear)
        Now, a few of you have gone above and beyond your very appreciative 'words' though! The header photo is a peep at one of your gifts that I received from a long...long....long way away! And yes! I'm gonna tell!!! ^_^ 
      I know I talk a lot, but my intention here is not to cause competition or illicit more gifts . In fact, after my hubby's joking and teasing me, I'm a little embarrassed to be given such a 'lime-light'!! He thinks you're trying to 'Queen' me!!! LOL
      So, from here on I won't be showing any gifts I receive as personal thank yous here on the blog. In fact, please don't feel the need to send me a gifted thank you if you win one of my giveaways. (Which is always in play here on the blog. See the right hand sidebar for what's being given away right now....and enter!) You know how much I love and prefer your regular gift of words anyway!! :-)
      Here's the rest of the story...in pictures...of the gift I received from Bee Happy, all the way from the UK!! She won one of my giveaway hats a while back...a red one sorta like this one...
      {By the way, the red hat above, and the black one below too...
      ...are finally listed for sale in my Wuglyees shop! Yay for me, finally 'kicking LAZY to the curb'!!! LOL}
      ...and she sent me this!...
        It's a beautiful lavender heart sachet!...The other side says....
       And it smells so goooooood too!!! :-) 
            I also got a card!
         I wish I could smell those cupcakes!!! LOL But it's okay, it had some really sweet-viewing 'words'..... :-)
       Bee, this meant the world to me!! Truly....it did! My house has the sweet aroma of a gift lovingly sent, and a smile showing it was lovingly received. :-] {Now I just have to keep it away from my hubby!! He wants to take it and hang it in his car next to Oscar!!!! O_0  NO WAY!!! That would be no way to treat a gift!! LOL}
       Now, what's funny about this is that this is not the gift I was talking about yesterday when I told you I had received a gift from 'across the pond'!! ^_^ I got Bee's gift late yesterday!!!
         The gift I got a couple of days before that was from Dee, of Dee Dee's Vintage!! :-) 
       And since Dee is not around...she's on a trip to Greece with her boys...I can gush over her all I want...in 'private'!... *wink! wink!* You won't tell, will you?!! ^_^ ... Okay, here goes!
     Oh yeah! It was huge!!....And it came from the UK too!!!
        WOW!!!!!
          A sweet card with red roses all over it! :-) Somebody knows how much I love flowers!!
        Hmmm....What's this?!
        All in bubble wrap too?!.....
       Ooooo! Yum!! I'm always seeing her, on her blog, baking all kinds of goodies and making jams and saying to her: "I sure wish I had some!!"....Well, now I 'do' have some!!!! :-)
       Where are my hot biscuits?!! ^_^
      But this wasn't all she sent!
       I also got 2 balls of crochet thread....
        ...a little stitch crochet booklet....
       ...and one of her little handmade quilted pillows!!
           It's stitched so nicely. And it smells sooooo good!! :-) Thank you Dee....just in case you happen to read this when you get back...*giggle*
        So, as I said: "I get it!" I do a lot of talking!! My gushing and carrying on can, no doubt, get a bit annoying. But you'll forgive me...just this last time...won't you?! :-]
      Okay....off to finish Miss Jane Austen's book, and maybe even finish the black and white shawl today too! Now that LAZY has been 'kicked to the curb' I've been raring to go!!! Maybe I'll even pen some 'words'! :-) ...What are you doing today?! 

Poetry

Poetry, the gift of words,
that help you say whats in your heart;
that puts your thoughts of life together,
but pulls emotions all apart.

Poetry, your quiet friend,
that gives your voice a place to land;
that gives the things you'd  never say
a way to jump out from your hand.

Poetry, done to a beat,
a beat of words, said right in time,
without confusion of the music,
but just the rythum and the rhyme.

Poetry, phrase harmony;
the way a noun and adverb meet;
the way they line up line-by-line,
and all Not needed they delete.

Poetry, the passing thoughts,
and all the others I hold dear,
of all the people and the places
that I've  written down right here.

Poetry, the gift of words,
and putting them together too;
Without the pen and paper
what in the world would my mind do?

  3. Good Morning Deb, I love all your talking and gushing. No matter who you are talking about. I like seeing what others sent you. I think it's neat and special of all the people around the world who truly appreciate you for the special woman you are. We all have our attributes that make us special and unique. One of yours is the gift to gab and to be able to express it in a very special way. I sure felt your kiss and hug. I love a good squeezer hug, they are the best. Sending one back your way. Peg
