Orange, Yellow, Blue and Gray

        Not everything that's good in life is all about color. Case in point: hubby made the most delicious tuna salad yesterday...elbow noodles, bell pepper, onions, mayonnaise, grated Parmesan cheese, celery, salt and pepper...and it didn't have much color at all. In fact, I stopped him from putting any more 'color' in it! He wanted to add Dijon mustard and red pepper flakes...Uh...some times you need to leave 'well enough' alone and let things remain colorless! LOL
        That's true with tuna salad and with tennis! :-) Speaking of which...

**********  ...Maybe the Williams girls...Serena and Venus...should've left the French Open alone this year! It really hasn't been a good place for them this year...Serena lost in a crushing defeat day before yesterday. And yesterday Venus played the world number 3, Agnieszka Radwanska, and... guessed it...she lost 6-2, 6-3. :-( 
       Venus was playing at a major tournament for the first time since August of last year, when she had to withdraw before her second-round match at the U.S. Open. It was then that she revealed she had been diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, a condition that can cause fatigue and joint pain.
      That's why yesterday's defeat wasn't as devastating as Serena's the day before, because Venus wasn't slated to win the French Open, as Serena was. Venus is enjoying her play and  working at it at her own speed, and keeping a positive attitude. She says she's not allowed to feel sorry for herself. Good for her!! 

       In other tennis news...winning and moving on to the next round are Victoria Azarenka,...Roger Federer (who was made to work yesterday when Adrian Ungur gave him a bit of a hard time!...but he kept it cool all the way to the win.),...Novak Djokovic was actively stretched during his second round match too, against Blaz Kavcic. But he somehow pulled through! :-)) 
       Already this morning Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova have won their matches; and Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal ("baby boy" ^_^),  and Wilfried Tsonga's matches are in progress. 
      Caroline Wozniacki, Li Na and Francesca Schiavone are all hoping to progress to the third round today...While Paul-Henri Mathieu (of France) vs John Isner is being touted as the match of the day!...You know where I'll be!! ^_^ **********

        But, all that being said, sometimes you need a fuller spectrum of color going, yellow, blue and gray! :-) At least that's what me and AngelaDesign think! :-)) I say so...because I'm always all about color! And I was thankful to be included in her treasury! :-)

           Talk about color!! :-) Here's a few of my favorites she chose...

      ...And I'm really partial to this pick (below)! ^_^

     Of course I 'would' be partial to this colorful little 'baby''s mine! ^_^ ...If you're interested in purchasing this little necklace, or any of my crochet creations, you can check them out in my Wuglyees shop--> HERE <--!

     Okay...that's all I got for today! I hope I'm not boring you too much with the tennis updates and all, but sit back and relax. There's only another whole week and a half...or go! LOL...I'm off to do some studying, watch a video, do some eating and crocheting, and maybe a nap...or two. ^_^ Have a good and colorful day, Everybody! :-)
