Paris To Boston To Holyoke

       ********** Right out of the blocks this morning, I'm all about tennis. Why? Because there were two good matches going on last night, that had to be postponed until today....because of darkness! :-) ...and both of them are being finished this morning. In fact, the Tsonga/Wawrinka match is distracting me right now! It's 4/4 in the 5th set!....Juan Martin Del Potro and Tomas Berdych have to finish their match too. It's going on right now in another court.
          As tennis goes, when it gets to these later stages of the tournament, the top ranking players are like cream that rises to the top when you're churning milk....Usually, they are the clear winners in each match. But there was an unexpected development yesterday...The #1 seed, Victoria Azarenka, was beat substantially by #15 seed, Dominika Cibulkova, 6-2, 7-6!!...It was a sledge hammer match...and so much fun to watch!

          Later today it'll be Andy Murray versus Richard Gasquet, and Varvara Lepchenko versus Petra KvitovaMaria Sharapova , and Na Li both have matches with players that I think they'll easily get through. And so does Rafael Nadal ("Baby Boy"). If not, you know I'll let you know about it! ^_^
       SPOILER ALERT!!!...Tsonga just won his match!!! :-)

     As I was saying...something about cream rising to the top...Congratulations Jo-Wilfried!!! ^_^ ...Anyway, it's gonna be good watching today too...that is if I can keep my eyes open! I didn't sleep good again last night. Grrr! 

        This time it's partly my fault though, because I was really sleepy at one point last night, and could've really went down for a while...I think!...but I forced myself to stay awake because I was watching the Boston Celtics/Miami Heat basketball game. ^_^ ...It was a nail-biter right down Paul Pierce and  LeBron James getting fouled out...and to the second over-time...right up to the very last second of the game!....Congrats to my home team, the Boston Celtics!! ^_^ I hope I don't end up paying for that decision later today. I've got things to do!!!! **********

        I'm working on a new crochet line for my shop. Lapel pin sets...I purchased some cuff links yesterday. I'm gonna see if a cuff link, instead of a button, works for the tiny colorful lapel pins...I'm gonna be making as many lapel pins as my arthritically rained on fingers can make...until the cuff links get here...If the cuff links don't work, at least I'll have the lapel pins all ready for button sewing!
      I'm also starting to put price tags on individual items as I make them, and put them into a carrying case for hubby...

SPOILER ALERT:...Del Potro just won his match!!! :-) ...Congratulations Juan Martin!!!  :-) Next stop...Roger Federer!!...

       Now, as I was saying...Hubby has agreed to be my tester/salesman. He's gonna take my crochet jewelry over to the family and friends and see what they think, and if they would buy any of it...My family will be brutally honest. That's what I need right now...from someone who can see my work up close and personal....I'm not giving them my poetry to critique though! O_O I don't care if they like that or not....I'M GONNA BE TALKING!!!! LOL
      Okay, off to finish eating...

      ...I'm not gonna eat this bread box though. It was just so cute that I had to show it to you! :-)
      ...Then I'm gonna relax myself and try to  get some sleep!...

       *Yawn*...Have a good day, Everybody!

 What do YOU talk about?

What do YOU talk about
when you don't have much to say?
A short phrase about the weather?
Or the 'fine'-ness of the day?

Do you ask: "How do you do?",
hoping they won't say a thing?
Or just say: "Call me tomorrow",
hoping that the phone won't ring?

Do you lend yourself to grins,
and slight noddings of the head,
knowing big smiles and eye contact
would make you committed to what they said?

What do YOU talk about
when your 'talker' is 'on the blink'?
Not hardly much at all.
Certainly not much as you would think!


  1. Thank you so much for featuring my bread box :)
    Have a wonderful week ahead!

    Pei Li

    1. It was entirely my pleasure! It's so cute! :-)

  2. Cute poem, Debbie! Oh my goodness, what's a girl to do with so many exciting sporting events being televised? Good luck on your new crochet line and your husband selling you fabulous creations! Love the sweet miniature bread box. Here's hoping you are slumbering peacefully as I type this.

    1. Hi Julie!...Thank you very much for the nice complement about the poem, and for the well wishes for my new cuff link lapel pins...I wish that I could get as much sleep as there is sports on TV right now! ^_^ That would be some serious rest!!...Have a good week, and keep watching the pretty birdies!

  3. No time for tennis around here... we're watching the Jubilee celebrations! I've missed most of it despite being a Londoner as OH is sick and I've been playing nursemaid. But thanks for the tennis update - I'd not have a clue otherwise! That is one seriously cute bread bin - love all your Etsy finds!

    Hope you had a great weekend x

    1. Hellooooo! :-) ... Hey! Tennis isn't everything, you know! LOL Sometimes sick OHs have to take precedence! ^_^ I hope you're being a good nursemaid...YOU leave the tennis updating to me!...Have a good rest of the week!

  4. Thanks for the tennis update. I'm not one to really watch it, plus its only on pay tv here & we don't get that. As I was reading through the names I was thinking I am so glad I am not a commentator or a news reader I would surely pronounce the surnames incorrectly. They're rippers aren't they?!
    I hope you manage to get some much needed sleep tonight.

    1. No...thank you for taking the time to READ my tennis updates! LOL...especially since you don't really watch tennis that much...As to the names, as with anything else, once you hear the commentators talking about them, and you get to see them over and over again at different tennis tournaments, the names become second nature. So, none of them seem hard to me...just their tennis seems hard to watch sometimes. ^_^ ... By the way, I did get a bit of sleep today. I hope to get some more tonight!

  5. I absolutely love that first picture of the Eiffel Tower. Gorgeous!
