Pretty and Smart


First the smart: Vince’s quote, above.  Mr. L knows what he’s talkin’ about!!

Now, pretty.  The Orchid growing in my office:

000Office Orchid (10)It came to us as a tiny stalk and a few dark green and waxy leaves, and now look what it’s done.

000Office Orchid (5)Aren’t those colors wild?!

000Office Orchid (3)I seriously cannot believe this survived, let alone bloomed. Amazing!

Just goes to show that what seems like a hopeless venture can turn out to be an amazing piece of art.

What smart and pretty thing will you share with the world this weekend?  What do you find most attractive in this world?


A New Look for 2015

It’s only taken me a month to decide to change my look for the new year.

Don’t judge!

I may be slow, but I’m intentional, and my intention this year is to do more with my blog. I hope you’ll like the new additions/changes as they come.

Some things that I will be adding:

A Music or Meatless Monday. I’m not a big music fan, but I do have a few tunes that make me smile, and a few recipes that have found their way to the table and don’t include meat. We’ll see where this takes us.

More Quotes. I will be doing this mainly to remind myself of the things I’ve heard that have shaped my thinking, and to share them with others who might be equally inspired. I hope they will be useful to you.

More Photos. I will try to add a photo or photo gallery once a week, probably on Tuesday or Wednesday, hopefully full of images that will help you to know me better. The jury is still out on whether anyone will care about this new addition. Time will tell.

So, here is what I’m asking of you:

If you like something you see here in the next few weeks, please say so. If you don’t like something, likewise express yourself, but be nice. If there is something I could add that you think would make the blog more fun, more interesting, or more useful, share away.

I’m excited about the changes that are coming and looking forward to our adventure into 2015. Woohoo, bring it on!

Create a great weekend, everyone! You guys ROCK!!!
