new hair cut,mud art ,hello darlings,life is about:

hi darlings,well got a new hair cut,feeling better,still a bit tired,while down at hospital,sister took me to beach,we got to see a turtle next hatching and found a giant sea snail.hoping to get some art out to folks I own some to and working on some mud is everyone doing?going to try and visit some today.

There once was a woman who woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror,
and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?"
So she did and she had

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror
and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

"H-M-M," she said,
"I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?"
So she did
and she had

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.

"Well," she said,
"today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."
So she did
and she had

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

"YEA!" she exclaimed,
"I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,

for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,

Speak kindly.......

Leave the rest to God

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

I am so happy to hear from you and see your happy face! You look so tan! Well you have a very nice shaped head! The "Swamp Witch" never arrived but please don't even think about it , it's totally ok, I love your book you sent me anyway so that is fine with me! I would have immediately thanked you if it had appeared but never fear just work on the things you need to make and I love hearing from you!

Hello Dear Jessy. It's good to hear from you again.

I was sorry to hear you were feeling bad, but happy to hear you are feeling better, now. Your new haircut is lovely!

Well, well, so much going on that I didn't know about.

I'm glad you're better and your hair cut is fine.

You had a very smart grandmother to teach you all you know about painting with mud.

No red dirt around here. If we dig much we find that old heavy gray looking clay.

It's still warm (90's) and not much rain over in our county. Even the pumpkins are small this year.

I'm glad things worked out so you could get the garden things canned before you went to the hospital.

Take care!! Love-n-hugs!! I'll be checking back.
