Hmmmmm...How Do I Not Bore You Today?!

       When I was trying to think of what to talk to you about for my post today...I drew a blank! O_O Do I tell you about the great tennis matches I've been watching...Nadal, Djokovic, Sharapova, Williams, etc...?
        Do I tell you about the pork chop my hubby cooked...that ended up not tasting like pork chop at all?...Don't ask!! I'm not even in the right state of mind to talk about that yet!! ^_^ Let me just say....YUCK!!
       Do I tell you about the cute new boutonniere I made yesterday, out of leftover threads? I call it a 'one-of-a-kind', but actually I just wanted to use the threads up instead of throwing them away, and I decided that however it came out was how it was gonna stay! Lol...

     ...but it actually came out a lot cuter than I thought it would! ^_^ I like it when that happens! :-) ... By the way, I also made this lapel pin...

      I had enough thread for that one! :-)

      I know!...I'll tell you about the cute items I found on Etsy!...Okay, you knew that was coming, didn't you?! ^_^ ...

      I love, love, love these little button boxes!! (above, and in the header photo) I have LOTS of buttons I could put in it too!! :-) ...

        And when I saw this bag...

     ...my pulsating LOVE heart started to do a little jig! :-) I don't know if it's the stripes, the colors, or the design, but I just love it!! :-)

       Are you bored?!...Well, let's see if this perks your interest, or makes you tilt your head...like it did me! :-)) ...

      I'd never seen anything like this...a cameo carved into a conch shell I mean...Soooo cool! :-]

       And last, ahhhhhhhh! A good place to sleep! :-) ...

      Considering the quietness of my life this morning....and PLEASE, for the most part, let's keep it that way!!! ^_^...taking a little nap in between tennis matches sounds like a good idea! ^_^ Of course I have to have breakfast first!...I'm bored, not dead!!! LOL
      Have a good...non-boring...day, Everybody! And I'll try to do the same! :-)

A Little Doze'll Do You!

I enjoy my sleeping, and a doze,
a nap, and such.
In fact I might enjoy a snooze
entirely waay too much!

At any time of day,
you'll find me like a weeping willow.
Head hung low and dragging,
looking for the nearest pillow.

No, there's nothing wrong.
I'm not depressed. I've still got bounce!
And I can stay awake and be
quite witty when it counts!

But I have been awake for things
when I could have been asleep.
And now my time's so valuable
I don't treat it like it's cheap.

My sleeping, dozing, napping,
is to my life a special key.
It unlocks and refreshes
and dispels anxiety!

Most people try to fill up
every hour in the day.
But me, I'd rather be asleep
and waste it all away.

There's plenty hours left
for all the flit and play and chore.
An hour for a nap right now?!
Why not?! There's 24!!
