God paints his masterpiece

“Some people say it's late,
but I always say when God paints his masterpiece,
it'll be done at the right time and it will come.
We need cold nights, we need some frost to bring it on.”
William Wilson

Two loves of mine

I've been knitting and crocheting since I was a little girl,
and find it a great way to relax.
I love making up my own designs and colour combinations.
There is no greater pleasure than creating
something with your own two hands.
Oh..............maybe there is ;
crocheting while the most favorite puppy in the world
tries to get hold of my yarn.

or settings wherein are metamorphosed
the element of a childhood pastime.”

walk about the house

I cannot dream
but I wake
and walk about the house
as though I'd find you coming through some door.”

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

we used to think that when we were grown-up
we would no longer be vulnerable.
But to grow up is to accept vulnerability...
To be alive is to be vulnerable.”

and not everyone is supposed to get that kind of humor.
But the people here seemed to like it.
The guy really wanted to tell me what kind of tree he would be,

the blues

I met a girl who sang the blues,
And I asked her for some happy news;
But she just smiled and turned away”

why the bride changed her mind.
What do you mean? responded her mother.
Well, she went down the aisle with one man,
and came back with another.”

shower me with flowers

I'm going to fly like a bird.
I'm flying like an eagle,
Terry ... and when you go down,
1-2-3, they're going to shower me with flowers.
