Life...Family...And Pretty Butterflies!

       Hello! :-) See my smiley face? --> :-) I'm feeling better. A lot better! I haven't coughed for hours! My nostrils are staying clear...except for just after I wake up. And my head is thinking up all kinds of pretty things to make today! :-)
       That's probably why this pretty craft tape from the Etsy shop lillalotta caught my eye. Talk about PRETTY!! :-)

      Oh, if only I could figure out how to get some of it onto my crochet flowers!! ^_^ Ha! Even I'm not that talented!! LOL So I guess I'll just admire it from afar. :-)

      I really don't have anything to talk about today, so this post will be a kind of 'stream of consciousness' ramble..Starting with the fact that I was contacted by my biological father's family recently. I don't know why I'm even talking about it because it's such a confusing situation for me.
      My biological father died a long time ago now. I never knew him. It does my heart good though, to get updates about how everybody is doing. I also must admit that it feels kind of disconnected somehow too though. I mean, I'm a sister, but not really...I have nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles...but not exactly. O_O 
      It almost seems like a book I read somewhere! LOL A father I never met before he died, a step-mom who I don't really know, and who seems wary of me. Sisters and brothers that I never converse with...but somehow we're all related! ^_^ ...Add to that the other sisters and brothers who I sometime wish I didn't want to converse with, and you have the whole story of moi! I mean.
      It's not the 'whole' story of moi...because you'd have to add a whole lot of Jehovah God, some wonderful friends, a trick hip and some arthritis (Grrr!), some Russell Stovers chocolates, a six-foot husband, some crochet hooks, boutonniere flowers and pretty get the whole story of 'MOI'!! LOL
      I've talked about my family situation on earlier blog posts anyway, so I won't get too into again, but if you have any ideas about how to navigate this kind of relationship, without stepping on spiritual and emotional toes, give a girl (me) a clue, will ya! ^_^
      For now...I'm off to get some breakfast, and ponder life...and butterflies. :-) You can join me if you like! ...Have a good day, Everybody! :-)

My Favorite People

My favorite people listen well,
and talk almost as good.
They like to eat good food,
and hang out in my neighborhood.

They like a chuckle now and then,
and dance when music's played.
And give nice complements...
and no! they haven't all been paid!

Some 'favorite people' are, I'm sure,
still ones I haven't met.
But until then, my favorites are
ones owed a 'loving' debt.

They've loved me through some heartache,
and the hardest, roughest time.
They're my favorites for a reason,
and deserve this 'Wuggie' rhyme.


  1. So glad you're feeling better! :)
    I love that tape too, but can't figure out what I'd do with it either. Dilemmas!!
    As for your family situation....hmmmm....I thought I had a crazy mixed up family!!! I know what you mean about having brothers and sisters (sort of) that you don't know and probably never will.
    Hope all will work out for you anyway.
    Have a great day and a great meeting tonight (if yours is tonight...ours is)

    1. Thank you, Bead...Yep, feeling lots better than I was before. :-] And about the family situation, uhhhhh....yeah! Mixed up. Crazy? That is 'Families-R-Us'!!! LOL I'm hoping it all works out eventually too. I'm not gonna hold my breath though. There's apparently a lot of water under that bridge. Most of it flowed long before I was even born!! ^_^ Have a good rest of the day! We have the Assemly this weekend, so no meeting tonight...technically that is. I'm gonna find one somewhere!! LOL

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better sweetie, gorgeous tape, will have to investigate!

    Bee happy x

    1. Thanks, Bee! :-] And I agree about the tape. And if anybody could use it...YOU could on your beautiful creations! ^_^
