Me On Monday - September 14th



Big wave to all & joining in with Sian's Me On Monday.  You can find more at  http://fromhighinthesky.blogspot.ca/ 

Blue Morning Glories In My Garden
A week of many emotional ups and downs / I need new runners as my latest pair from all my walking have worn away in the lining so rubbing my heel / sending a get well card  & flowers to one of the ladies in my horse circle who fell off her horse, she broke a shoulder, collar bone and two ribs with a concussion and was unconscious in the field but no one knows for how long, she was out alone, thankfully she was wearing her helmet – scary situation / temperatures finally return to normal breathable air / rain / celebrations for Mr Man’s birthday were very quiet, he didn’t even want cake!! / training schedules for new hires at physio clinic sorted / tomatoes ripening all together / giving away tomatoes / still waiting for library to call / gathering ideas for a Thanksgiving table setting / dirty paw prints all over patio furniture – squirrels or raccoons? / getting out some of the seasonal change in clothing / only half way through federal election campaigns – oh Lord give me strength / weekend weather was chilly & damp / Michaels Craft had big sale on paper, 5 sheets of 12X12" for a $1.00 / online December Daily activity has started; so many wonderful talented scrappers out there; I certainly feel over whelmed / taking one of my cameras in for repairs – it fell over while on the tripod - the thought of repairs costs is making me feel ill! / painting my toenails a shade of teal blue in support & awareness of Ovarian Cancer. The photo is showing it to be much more blue than it really is.  This Monday is seeing me feeling a little blue but I hope that is just reflection of the skies above! For all shall be well, for all is well.

    1. Thanks Helena. I will just keep repeating Professor Dumbledore's quote - happiness can be fought even in the darkest of times if we only remember to turn on the lights.

    1. This is the first time in 2 years that my morning glories have bloomed, so in spite of them being blue, I am cheered by their loveliness.

  3. The great thing about Me On Monday is that you can put out the call for a bit of cheer and someone is bound to turn up and offer you a friendly pat on the back. I hope you find a little lift somewhere this week and that sky stays blue for you

    1. Thanks Sian. You are so right. Often a self debate as to whether to say one feels low but I do believe everyone knows that we all have ups and downs. Looking up and forward ... no rainbows without rain :)

    1. Thanks Louise. Unfortunately my friend is now having what they call Concussion Sickness, throwing up, disorientated, headaches. Not good. But if any good comes of it everyone is wearing their riding helmets today.

  5. Hoping that all the ups and downs are just life's little hills and vales rather than anything major, causing blueishness. It's easy to get despondent when too many niggles come at once. Hope this week brings lots of smiles and nice plans to look forward to! :o)

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. Yes too many little niggles in a short span of time. One day of blues is not a life sentence.

  6. Wishing a fantastic week for you to lift you out of your blues - although the beautiful blue nail varnish is allowed to stay x

    1. Thanks Sandra. My friend's mishap is giving Mr Man an excuse to discourage my riding - he has always thought it is too dangerous. I enjoy Thanksgiving/Autumn decorating so definetly will be posting :)

  9. I hope your friend recovers well, good she was wearing her helmet. I hope the camera repairs are not too expensive!

    1. Thanks Barbara. Camera repair will take 7-10 days for the technician to look at, who knows how long afterwards to repair - I am being positive that repairs can make it all fine. ;)
