Simple Woman's Daybook for Monday, May 24, 2010

Simple Woman's Daybook - Monday, May 24, 2010

Outside my window, my pretty red and white flowered table cloth has been "decorated" by bird poop.

I am thinking that I love the new coffee cup my Mom bought me that says "It's all good." inside the rim, so I see it with each sip.

I am thankful waking up feeling energized and ALIVE this morning...I was even singing and humming pre-coffee. Also for the sweet visit with my Mommy this weekend. Short but so sweet.

From the kitchen, David's fresh baked and very yummy Pumpkin & Colon Blow Muffins.

I am wearing my favorite paisley pajama bottoms, a grey t-shirt, white flip flops and a yellow daisy behind my ear.

I am creating journal pages that blow me away - where do they come from ?

I am going to be painting lots of Rock My World rocks today as I have an order for ten little bags of them from a local restaurant owner.

I am reading Marian Keyes, The Brightest Star in the Sky for fun and Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking by David Bayles & Ted Orland for some brain food.

I am hoping/praying that the way I feel this morning carries me throughout the week...

I am hearing the garbage truck moving on to the next street and the crazy cardinals tweeting on top of it all.

Around the house it is quiet, and things are nice & tidy since my Mom was here for the weekend and the big cleaning was done last week.

One of my favorite things is Gerbera Daisies like the crazy huge Lollipop variety that David talked me into getting to grace my back deck container flowers. (See photos to share below). How can you look at them and not smile ?

A few plans for the rest of the week : Seeing "Sex & the City 2" with Sonia 'cause that's what girlfriends do, get rock orders done, enjoy the summer-like weather and get my doggie to a swimming hole !

A few pictures I'd like to share...

Check out these Gerberas !!!

Pretty red & white table cloth (sans bird poop).

Latest journal page - "Herself" - May 24, 2010 (click to enlarge)

A great quote from Sarah Jessica Parker fit right in on this one.

I look good in hats, don't you think ?

Too bad they aren't more in style.

Such a great accessory.

A reference to my Lollipop, the flowering plant of the season !
Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian Family & Pals ! Enjoy your Monday off !
It is nice and early as I finish this post.
I will make one promise to myself on this gorgeous, sunny warm day in May :
Get Thee Away from the Computer !!!
Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones!

I was hoping for a pic with the daisy behind your ear.
You DO look good in hats, and the daisies are scrumptulicious! Enjoy the day...

Mary said...

love this journal page, and bird poop on your tablecloth is better than where it landed on my husband!!
He was getting in his car, his sunroof was open and he felt what he thought was a big rain drop!!! :)
Yep, it was bird poop! He said he was glad I was not there, he said I would have peed my pants laughing so hard....and I would have!!!!

The page is awesome. Did you start with the quote or with your picture. I am always interested in seeing how others begin.

You look great in hats, you just start wearing them and before you know it you have started a trend.

Have a fabulous day....

Had to laugh at your bird poop decorated table cloth! Enjoy the movie!

Terry F said...

Sounds like a glorious day. Next time I am in "need" I will have to visit on muffin morning! I wish hats were in fashion too. They are fun.
Many more happy visit days with your Mom!

Lynn Cohen said...

I loved reading this all...bird poop and colon blow??? Oy Vey...strong muffins those.
Love the journal pages too.
They come from your inner depths, your soul...I love when art seems to spring almost unbidden, and surprises me/us in glorious ways.

Cindy said...

I really love all your journal pages, wonderful. take care, have a great week.

BJ Lantz said...

Beth above beat me to what I was thinking as I read your post: I want to bottle your mood!

Elizabeth Halt said...

You could wear them (hate) and inspire others to wear them and cause them to be in style!

Those do look like lollipops! I've never seen them before.

Ooooh. SATC 2!!! I think I shall indulge this weekend.

Have a fabulous week!

Hi Kim ~ I love the way you appreciate the little things in life. Of course you know that the little things really ARE the important artwork. I have not given up on my wish to hang out with you sometime in your studio - just playing with paints and markers. Someday.

Bethany said...

Weird, look at my May 24th post from one year ago!

I love your daisy and your page and you in hats. You can make them in style again babeeeeeeeeeee.
