What is right with you is the starting point…

P8260019Thursday afternoon tea with arty friends Colleen and Terry on the back deck.

David said he could hear my laughter from inside and it made him happy to hear me laugh with my friends. He is such a sweetie.

Friday evening, my lovely pal Sonia and I went to the movies to see “Eat, Pray, Love”

He is in it. Ah, hem…

(Sorry, David. You are the man for me forever. Javier is just a little eye-candy…okay a lot of eye-candy.)   Javier Bardem and Julia Roberts photo from Eat Pray Love

Oh, and Julie Roberts was in it too. ;) Liked the movie. Fun, fluffy, “search for one’s self, but find hunky man along the way too” stuff but I do think it is awesome that movies about self-discovery and “being in the moment” are being made. A lot better than one more shoot ‘em up or “the world is coming to an end” movie for me, anyway…

Saturday, I spent a few hours on the back deck under the umbrella while David did yard work.

Our gardens and lawns look so lush and lovely thanks to the Man.

I was working on making this :

I used many of the suggestions that you lovely readers gave me for the 400th Post giveaway to fill the rocks. The added bit of inspiration made the rock painting flow and I filled two whole trays of lovely Rock My World Rocks in no time !

I have a few orders to fill – one for 100 rocks for my lovely meditation teacher Deb, at Full Spectrum Wellness. I just love seeing the trays of the rocks all painted. It makes me think “abundance” every time !

And today, this will be me :  P7310057

My honey and I are going to the beach in Hampton today. It is supposed to hit 92 degrees and I can’t miss a beach day like that so late in the season. It may well be the last one.

I will soak up some rays (through the sunscreen, of course), read some trashy beach book, walk in the surf, holding hands with the man I love, and BE in the moment on that sandy beach as much as I possibly can.

Life is good, Lovely Ones. So good.

I will send Big Love, prayers and wishes to you on the ocean breezes…

Whee! Catch some rays for me. We are down to the crunch now with school starting tomorrow - had to run out today and pick up something on the list I somehow missed. Then it's yet another birthday party for R. to attend - that's what happens when you're a nice person, you get invited to alot of do's. Catch 'ya on the flip side and don't forget to turn over every half hour.

LOVE the painted rock idea....what pen did you use? & Did you seal them afterwards?

Olivia said...

How nice to have the beach so close by, and what a relaxing post. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day, My Queen, and enjoy ocean ministrations, kisses from the sun, soft breezes, and love from your hubbie. Love to you this Sunday, O

Love your rocks. So inspiring.

Judy Wise said...

Oh man, I can just taste those sugar cookies and feel the heat from the great music and description of a 92 degree day at the beach.

Your life is beautiful indeed. I think all the messages of love you write on the rocks end up in your own heart which is big and beautiful. xo

Kate said...

Oh have a lovely day at the beach. The rocks look wonderful. Its cool here, so I am wearings sweats and two shirts. Its still beautiful just chilly. Enjoy your day.

Paula said...

Hope you had a great beach day! I grew up in Hampton, and we always went to North Beach rather than the big one - but they're all so lovely!

I am so enjoying the rocks that I got from you. Seeing the photo of the new ones -- well, I want more! I'll have to go order some as soon as I get through with this comment. ;) You know, that photo would make a lovely note card or post card. I'm just saying.
