Hello Blogland from FREEZING Western Maryland!!!! It didn’t get above 15 degrees here today. Unbelievable when a week ago it was close to 70!!!!!
Thanks to all of you for your kind comments and encouragement on Sunday’s rude people post. I do, however, want to be sure no one gets the impression I’m some self-righteous halo wearing prig. FAR from it!!
I have a very snarky, sarcastic sense of humor and am quick with a comeback. My big mouth has gotten me in trouble more than once in my younger days. I always say if people could read my thoughts I’d be in DEEP doo-doo!! I THINK it but keep my mouth SHUT!!!
I really try to abide by some wisdom my great-grandmother Annie (click on her name to read more about her) gave me. Her life motto was the Serenity prayer. “God grant me the serenity to accept those things I can not change, The courage to change those I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
I jokingly like to add ” and enough time to dispose of the bodies”. It’s simple but oh so true. She also loved an old poem called “I shall never pass this way again.” She always said we have but one moment to make an impression , to make a difference, to change someone’s life and we need to never let it pass us by. Remarkable lady and she lived her creed. She used to tell me to treat others as I would like to be treated. She’s been gone 19 years almost and I miss her every day. I often think in a situation..what would Annie do?? She was the epitome of someone who followed Jesus and his teachings–it was her actions not her words that showed it.
Enough philosophy and such!!! This was my worktable in The Craft Palace–cleaned up a bit—this weekend! Got LOADS of creativity accomplished!!
I dressed warmly since it was colder than a witches tit out today. I’m wearing the stunning scarf the always fabulous Helga sent me. I find I wear this combo of raspberry and brown a lot. The plaid of the pants has a thin wine colored stripe in it so wines/reds/dark pinks look good with them.
