Little Joys


I finished my little afghan of solid crochet squares.  Love it!  I'll share more info later.


My Beloved and I recently enjoyed Grandparent Day with our Little Men.  Quite the day!  The boys were so very sweet showing us around their school.  I'm so proud of these Loves.



These roses won Flowers of the Walk this morning.  Sooooo beautiful!




Made me whip out the watercolors... oh, it's been so long!  This is the first pass at it.  We will see where it goes from here!  Ha!  Maybe the trash can!  LOL!  Those of you who have seen me mess with watercolors before know I have a hard time finding the place to STOP!  It's not like knitting or crochet where you have a specific place to start and end; and, for a person with slight perfectionist tendencies, it can be almost impossible to find the quitting place!  If you know anything about watercolor... there is definitely a place where you have just gone TOO FAR.  More to be revealed. 


 I'll leave you with a little chuckle.  Our tournament this week was Diva Day, as we hosted the Nine Hole Ladies, who on the whole are much more "well dressed" than we, the 18 Hole Ladies, are.  I'm with my friend, Cynthia (one of my regular peeps and who was one of the chairs of this fun event).  The wind BLEW and I molted everywhere!  Ha!  I'm thankful I don't have all these "accessories" on my normal rounds. We did have lots of FUN!

I hope each of you find a LITTLE JOY, a reason to smile this week...  
I hope you hold that joy and let it seep deep inside... 
I believe we mostly find what we look for in life.   Doesn't mean there aren't bad things and tough days.  Just means that our everyday lives are colored by our "vision".  

See the GOODBe the GOOD.

Hi Tanna, The colors of your afghan are so warm. Beautiful. How precious are your grandsons; how special to join them for Grandparents Day. That's a great photo/memory. Oh, I love your be-jeweled sunglasses! lol Glad you guys had fun. Those roses are pretty and so is your watercolor. Hope you have an enjoyable rest of the day.
