Chop Suey Saturday

off in the distance,

under the afternoon skies

they saw the same grouping

that they were looking at

just down the path

half covered by vines

background 7.29.17

Neither spoke

they stood rooted on the spot

another mystery

to be uncovered

journey doll 7.29.17c

Yvette arrived earlier

Clementine was due next week

excitement was building

Rosie promised she would

let them explore her

chest of drawers

they still had no idea

where the music came from

it happened when she was

working in her room,

and now, double statues

3 maidens high above

and 3 maidens on the ground

somewhere there was a clue

quietly no words spoken

they turned

walking deeper into the gardens.

chest or coffin 7.22.17

neither saw the chest hidden further in

from where they had been standing.

How nice, another birthday card.  Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house.  Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.

Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating.  So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night.  She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.

Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it.  Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.

Birthdays were such happy times.  She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled.  Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.

roses for Rosie

*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…

The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie.  Every day was so full of surprises.!

We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

why?

Why?

I tried, I wanted to

I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,

pristine white, blank pages,

for days I even  practiced the different styles of lettering

anticipation high, time to doodle and write.

Yet when I got to where we were going,

Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering

The pads of blank pages, came home empty.

Why?

It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries,  a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

May happiness and good health bless your day today!

Chop Suey Friday 6.2.2017

found 5.30.17a

We’ve all had them.

Some more often than others.  Days when we are going all day, but come the end of the day, as we prepare to shut down, we realize that things are still left undone, unfinished, or just not “jiving”.  You might be ready to call it a day, but the projects you started are still in  “hey, what about me” mode.

The next day I went out to buy the above doll an outfit of some kind, to cover her up. Looked, searched, and finally decided on an outfit that came with another doll,  in the same series. (or so I thought)… when I got home, the other doll and her clothes, were maybe half the size of Jezebel …  So Jeze is still naked.  AND the picture, well, at the moment, I’ve lost interest.  So it is still hanging around too.

Today was church day, on the 1st of every month we celebrate Day of Peace.  I had made arrangements to take Sienna (doll) into have her ears pierced today….nooooo I’m not kidding.*..  I had planned to get her to the store for 9:30, but was reminded that the service today was at 10 a.m.   I love the formal ceremony that we do.  I always feel so at peace and “content” when I am not part of it, but sitting and taking it all in.  Rev. Eugene was a “doll” and said he would do it all today, so that I could just sit and enjoy.  What a treat, I soooo needed that  “precious time”  I could feel negative energy falling away.

The rest of the day, flew by, I drove from one end of the city to the other, even took the super-duper highway instead of winding my way on the secondary roads.  Got all that I wanted to do, done.  Came home with time to spare.

All this to say, there are times when life just  hiccups along, we seem to be spinning our wheels…. However, we have to have these times, so that when it is smooth sailing, we know to appreciate and be grateful, for the blessings that come our way.  Blessings come in all shapes and sizes.  Sometimes the blessings are in disguise,  PL Precept #11  Always be with God.  When we stay connected, life is good in whatever way it greets us.  Jeze may still be naked, but I sure do enjoy her   “attitude” and the half done painting, well, it is what it is.  Eventually I’ll use parts of it, or all of it.. I’m not concerned, That was yesterday, and this is today.
