This Morning

I was on my way to work this morning….

Going out of our Condo area when this flash of white fur went running across the street.

I pulled off to the side of the road (In a red, no parking, no stopping zone)…got calmly out of my truck (threw open the door, didn’t look for traffic, and flung myself running across the street)

Looking around for the white flash….I found a cute little white Bichon puppy. I walked over to him as coolly as I could (skipping, smiling, giggling) and said “Hi Puppy”!!! He JUMPED right into my arms…..At this moment I was thinking the following things, which I am not terribly proud of:

1. Does he have a collar?
2. Is it a he or a she?
3. Hmmm…my parents would really think you are cute.
4. How many (I mean one located on the backside of my front door should be plenty )and for what duration (minutes, or seconds) do you have to put a “Lost Dog” sign out before giving said Puppy to my parents?

I opened my truck door, threw the puppy in, just in time for a snot nosed teeny bopper boy to inquire if I had his dog???.(Hmmm…I admit… I thought about lying)… As I passed the puppy thru my truck window, I inquired as to why his dog Did NOT have a collar on….Hmmppp…Irresponsible dog owner…

As the terd walked away with what was surely my Parents next dog, I attempted to turn the key on my truck…..which ended with a pop, a fizz, and nothing… and don’t forget I am stalled in that no stopping/parking zone…

That’s right…all Good deeds do not go unpunished in my little bubble….

After a call to my husband, a call to AAA (Thank goodness my Mother in Law got us our first Membership), I found myself on the road to work with clean battery cables….(Who knew corroded battery cables could cause a lack of power to the engine…), a deep sadness of loss over what could have been a new member of our family, and feeling wonderfully Grateful to a God who makes small Blessings happen every day!!

Dear So and So....

To read more So and So....visit 3 Bedroom

Dear Cute Little Brunette Secretary,
Skirts should accentuate all of your curves. If you can see your panty lines, while holding your breath.....its too tight for bending over as you "file".

Fondly, The Cute Not So Little Brunette Project Coordinator

Dear Husband,
I respect you for working this week even though you have this terrible cold. You are such a Good Man.

With Love, Your adoring Wife.

Dear Executives at Un-named Company,

Your company is like a Bumble Bee when it comes to making money. We Know it flies, we just don't know how!
We know its hard to connect the dots, but sometimes the shortest distance between point A and point B really is a straight line.

Kind Regards, The Sane Employee locked in the Insane Asylum of a company.

Dear Rain,
Why is it that when you come to California, your visit causes a panic worse than an Earthquake.

See ya around ~ Stuck in Traffic.

Day 1 - 30 Days of Elegance finding time for 30 straight days of Elegance has proven to be a little rough....perhaps this is one of the reasons I feel like we are always rushing and running!!! Hahaha
That being said, I have made my best effort to get started!!! The Great Wall of China wasn't made in one day, and this Journey might take just as long!!!

I'm taking the list of things, a little out of order due to schedules, but am so excited that I got started!!!
Day 1 Tasteful Luxury - February 12,2010 - Visit your local garden club. Take book to read, surrounded by the beauty God Created

I invited my Mom to join me on this little adventure.

We visited The Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona Del Mar! It was a most beautiful day, and the Gardens were amazing! I was simply captivated by all of the different textures and colors!! Especially the wonderful Koi in the Koi pond (I'm kind of drawn to animals like that!).

What an amazing gift from God, his creativity is awe inspiring!

Do you ever just want to cry...

I lost some weight and was feeling really great about it. Aunt Flow started on her own without hormones …the first time in years... I thought I was making progress….
Now it won’t stop!!! I’m going on a 5 week long period….
I’m exhausted, I’m cranky, and I’m just done.
Do you know how hard it is to continue eating Salads, Fruit, and Veggies….when all I want is Pasta, Cheese, and Cotton Candy????
I know with everything else going on in the world this is all very trivial….
But in this moment, right here in my little bubble….I JUST WANT TO CRY….
Okay…I feel better now….thanks for listening…
