Rain, Rain....You Might As Well Go Away!

     Yep! You probably can guess, from the header photo, that the rain we were expecting yesterday...came! And it's still coming now! It's foggy, misty,...wet! But you know what else?!....It's not gonna stunt my mood today one...bit! ^_^
      I'm in some pain physically, but my mood is so good that it doesn't even matter!...Why such a good mood, you ask?!...Well, I'll tell you! ^_^ For one thing, I got a good night's sleep. And I didn't think I would either, because I went to bed late last night. We had our meeting, and I didn't get to bed until almost 10:30 p.m. {By the way, my hubby had a Bible reading last night. He did a great job!}
       The other thing is that that although our car is dead and almost gone...hubby's gotta sign the papers for it's release this weekend...last night some friends offered us their old car...for free!...they recently bought another one! :-) So, the hunt for another car for hubby to drive back and forth to work may be over!! ^_^ Isn't that great!!...In fact, considering we had no idea what we were going to do...except pray and be patient until an answer's pretty amazing!!...Sorta like these baskets!...

      Sorry...I couldn't help myself. I had to show you SOMETHING! ^_^ 

      I'm also in a good mood because I'm going to be sharing a few words with my next blog poetic words, I mean. :-) Yep! I'm giving away a copy of my book of poetry!...

      This is the same one that's on sale in my Wuglyees shop right now. Most of the poems in it are ones I've shared on this blog before. A few are new though...

      I designed the cover, and chose the colors for it too. I even chose to use the paper with the clouds all over it for the inside pages...

        It's a pretty large poetry books go. And truth be told, I'd make some changes to it if I was re-releasing it...I'd change the script to something simpler (It's all Victorian-like now). I'd make the print larger. I'd get hubby to add some of his stick people... ^_^ ...and I'd change the outside cover color to a more vibrant green or orange or something! Something that would make it stand out so people wouldn't be able to resist wanting to buy it!! ^_^ ...They're resisting now. And they're resisting a LOT!! LOL

        Last, but not least, my mood was kinda altered by some coffee last night...^_^ Yeah! I had a small cup before bed (knock-out medicine, I called it! ^_^) cookies!! ^_^ Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!!!...

       I got them as a most unexpected...and delicious!....! ^_^ Yes...a gift! I got them from the same person that made my gorgeous tags!...which came with the delicious cookies last night! ^_^ They were wrapped up so pretty that I almost didn't wanna open them!...

       ALMOST!!!...But you know I did!!...

       They've even prettier in person! :-) And the cookies weren't the only free gift that came with them! I got these too! :-) ...

        I'm in my green butterfly 'happy place'! :-) Thank you very much LillyThings!! :-) ...

Now you know why I'm in a good mood this morning...even though my body is not in a good mood! :-))

       Oh yeah, my 'tiggerific' girlfriend is here for our Friday morning together too! :-) How could I possibly be in a bad mood with her around?!...NOT possible! ^_^

     One more, two more things! ^_^ ...Here's a glimpse of what I'm 'fiddling around' with right now...

     It's an old vintage doily that I'm transforming into a bag. Sorta like a beach bag...if I can get it to that point. ^_^ We'll see!

       It's gonna have all kinds of leftover colors on it by the time it's done!...

        For right now...until the rainy weather tapers's just sitting there with my hook stuck in it! ^_^ In all it's 'Ugly Wuglyee' pink beautifulness! ^_^
       So, would you be in a good mood if you had new tags, cookies, a crochet project made out of leftover yarn, and the bounciest friend ever visiting you?! ^_^ I think you would...especially if you're being serenaded by John Denver...which is what we're listening to right now. :-) ...And you're planning a 'virtual date night' with your hubby to a beautifully scenic place...The rain might as well go away! It doesn't have a chance of making me moody today! ^_^ Have a good day everybody!!

How Can You Be So Positive

"How can you be so positive
with everything so bad?
When folks are so unkind
and all those doctors make you mad?"

"It's easy!" I assure them.
'Cuz one thing makes it okay.
I wake up every morning,
and I'm breathing every day!

When I can't move a muscle
and can barely lift my head,
I think of all the folks I've known
who now are gone, yes, dead!

No matter what my problem is,
and if I stand or lay,
I'm thankful that my mind still works
and I'm breathing every day!

So how am I so positive,
When things sometimes seem bleak?
It's easy, 'cuz my breathing
keeps on going every week!

Oh yes, I have a choice!
I can be miserable and whine;
Be mean to folks around me,
Be demanding and unkind.

But who would make that choice,
when there's a better way to be?
I mean, who's breathing every day
and writing poems?...ME!      


  1. Wonderful post! No wonder you are in a good mood despite rain and an aching body. I hope your body catches up with your mood and feels better soon!!

    Gosh, I just love those tags you got. Might have to order some myself. And your book of poems looks just beautiful! The perfect look for your inspiring words...

    I feel sort of cheated - it was supposed to rain here yesterday and it totally passed us by. Today it's all gloomy, but I think we are not due for rain again until tomorrow. Since it doesn't rain so much here (and since I lived in the desert southwest for 10 years), I still get excited when it rains... So feel free to send some our way! :)

    Keep enjoying your day! Hugs, Silke

    1. Hi Silke! I hope the rain comes your way...if you really want it! O_O It's all gone here. Now we have higher temperatures and sunshine! ^_^ It's a win/win kinda day!...LillyThings will be so happy to get an order from you, and I know you won't be disappointed! My tags are wonderful!...And thank you for the nice words about my book of poems too! ^_^ ...I'm off to see if I can figure out how to deliver you some rain!! LOL If you get it...don't put a "return to sender" stamp on it!! ^_^

  2. I'm so happy you're getting some sun. You're aches and pains will be gone before you know it!! The rain will be gone by later this morning!

    Isn't Jehovah's organization wonderful? Just when you are in a position where you're not sure where to go, Jehovah moves someone to help!! Congrats on the car!! We have an old one here too that we don't drive but it's in good condition. I thought about you too!
    Those cookies look great!! Elizabeth not only makes gorgeous paper products by great looking cookies too! LOL

    Love the new giveaway! ENTER ME!!

    Have a wonderful day my sister!

    1. Hi Bead! :-) Yes indeed! We have SUN!!! So nice! My body is very happy!...And as you know, our friends are just amazing! We're an organization that doesn't just give 'lip service' to the command to 'love one another intensely from the heart'! This isn't the first time we've experienced the love of friends in times of need...and probably won't be the last!...but every time it still amazes me at how timely and complete the love is shown! I'm proud to be in this organization. I hope I'm always as attentive to others in their time of need. And that I encourage others as much as I am always so lovingly encouraged!...Speaking of which, it's too bad I couldn't share my cookies with you! I feel so bad about it too! -_^ Have a good day, Bead!!
