Hello Wednesday

Wednesday what a beautiful day it is. I can see the weather slowly creeping trying to change even though it is suppose to be in the 90's today. The mornings are simply crisp and cool. It is dark now at 6:00 am but I love it just the same I sit outside on my front porch while the neighborhood sleeps sipping on a cup of coffee while a ponder away with thoughts. I guess you can say that is a little part of my Joy. What gives you Joy? I use to ask myself that question and then one day I sat down and decided each day I would find Joy and snatch it up like it was my last breath. Therefore, is where I came up with the saying Snatch JOY! just grab hold of it and don't let it go. Often times we loose site of the small simple things in life not realizing it is our Joy!

I have been doing lots of thrifty shopping lately keeping myself busy it won't be long now before I go in for surgery I am ready to face this monster and soon it will be a distant memory. Tell me what you think of my latest thrifty finds also I need some help on deciding what color sofa to get. I found one I am so in love with at JC Penney just can't decide between red or gold maybe even white.

I love this sofa but I am not sure if I get it in red if that will be too much

Love to hear your suggestions also Nancy at Victorian Whimsies is having a giveaway for a Beautiful Victorian Cone please stop by her blog
I can't remember how to hyper link her web address. Belle Vista is having a Rooster Party this weekend you can click on the Rooster on my side post. Until my next post I wish you all Peace and Many Blessings

Relaxing Sunday

Today is one of those calm relaxing Sundays even though the temps outside is crazy hot. Last week I went to see the neurologist and things are coming along pretty good. So now it will be up to my primary care doctor to go ahead and give the oncologist the ok for my surgery. I just will be one happy woman when all this is behind me.

Each week I am still struggling more and more to get motivated to do some sewing I look at the piles of fabrics and sit there dreaming not moving not taking a step to even begin cutting. I guess everyone goes through a stage like this. The ideas are all there in my head but I guess with everything else my mind just wont allow me to do it right now and that is ok!

I am shame to say how much time I spend on here just drooling over so so many blogs I must say it is a HUGE amount of creative people out there. I discovered one blog the other day Barb at Bella Vista I was stuck in her blog for hours just gorgeous ideas so much talent. I decided to even join a Rooster Party she is having, I had laugh but for some reason I thought I was alone for my love of Roosters. So on the August 28, all that joined in on the fun will be showcasing their Roosters, I cant wait. I need to get a new memory card for my camera for some reason the darn thing just stopped working I keep getting a memory card error every time I turn on the cam. Oh well that is on the to do list for this week.

Most of you know about my love for PEPSI now I have found something else it's not a replacement but for now I am loving the Canada Dry Ginger Ale Green Tea DELICIOUS

Well time to fix dinner!
Peace and Blessings all
