The Two

The Aayla-3The Stars

As I sit here looking at the photos I took today, which took me awhile to get to as I get distracted very easily, so here I am an hour later and finally posting on my blog.

I often do get distracted, you know I start one project, walk away for a moment and then get distracted by something else, conversation with someone, other things that need to be done, shiny things, etc.  It’s quite frustrating for me, rushing to get things finished because I lose my focus so easily.  I often say over and over in my head (because saying it out loud would just be crazy) … focus, focus, FOCUS!!!! So here is hoping for betters days for me and more focus, oh look a cat … lol!!!

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!


The Purple and The Green

The Green-3The Purple

I have skipped a few days again, so I posted two pictures tonight.  I have let myself slide out of routine of a new photo ever night and it seems I am having a little problem getting back into my routine, but I am diligently working on it.

I love those days when you work with someone and everything just clicks, well today was one of those days.   You know when you  work with some people, you just feel as though you learn something and you feel as though you were helpful, yes those days that make you feel good.  I had more to say, but the hour is late, I am tired and I must try to get some rest.

Good night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Oil

I had this in mind a few days ago, but it took me a few days to get it together to accomplish it, you know I am a procrastinator (I’m actually the Queen of Procrastination). This is olive oil being poured into water, pretty interesting.

So I want to talk about a good news story tonight.  I have a friend who was in need of some car work and she asked on Facebook if anyone had a good recommendation to get it fixed.  Long story short, her car is now fixed, thanks to a great friend (mind you she just asked last night and today the car is fixed).  Such a blessing to have a friend who will step up and help out right then … not I can help you on the weekend or in a few days …. no excuses, just action!!! This made my day!!!

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed (see above story, my friend is such a blessing to others, she has been blessed), keep it positive (this friend always remains positive, no matter what life throws at her) and smile (she has the most beautiful smile too, she is the walking epitome of my life slogan)!!

The Mysterious

The Back-5

Oh my gosh I am finally posting a picture, it has been over a week since I posted a picture and I went with a little easy.  I love these photographing these flowers, they have so much depth and detail, unfortunately I almost waited to long to photograph them as they are fading a little.

I have been under the weather this past week and just wanted to sleep, so that’s what I did and of course clean when needed.  So now I need to play catch up with my blog, I am thinking I just might try to take more photos and post two photos a day to make up for my down time, but we shall see if I can make that happen, after all I am a little lazy and a procrastinator.  Of course that is one of they things I wanted to improve with the help of this blog, but I am not sure much improvement was made, so maybe I will need to keep this blog going for another year, something to think about as the year is coming to an end.

Good Night my friends!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Beads

The Beads-2

Yes my friends, it’s that time again, Christmas decorations.  You can expect a few more pictures of our decorations in the coming weeks, so prepare yourself.

Today while I was driving to work, wait let me correct that …. today while sitting in traffic trying to get to work, I realized something, I hang on to negative way to much.  All the bad things, all the times I goofed, all the times I thought others were being hateful …. I hang on to all of that, like it’s who I am.  Well today I thought, I need to be more positive, I need let go of all that negative and I did that today, well today was a better day.  So try that sometime, just let go of all that negative stuff, it’s not who you are, focus on the positive, focus on God and just see how much better your day will be.  Since you shall be in a better mood and having a better day, maybe that will overflow and make someone else’s day better, kindest and caring go a long way.

Good night my friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep positive and smile.

The Whole Bunch

The Bunch

With last night’s post I have discovered something, flower pictures are much more the popular then my cat pictures and I had planned on a very good cat picture to post. Oh well, the cat pictures shall make another appearance, but alas not tonight.

I normally don’t post on Tuesdays as I have a weekly thing I attend and so I am usually too busy to even thing of posting.  Well two things made this possible, I arrived home a little earlier than usually and I just felt like it (okay, so the last reason is a little on the selfish side, but it’s true).  So today I was thinking about many things (which I tend to do way to much), but anyway, I was thinking about the struggles I have, I am not going to talk about them here (they are struggles within my mind, you know my sanity), but I am going to talk about my God who has helped me this last year to overcome some of my struggles. Let me tell you, I am not who I was last year and over the last two months I feel I have traveled out of a cloud that has encompassed me for far too many years. This cloud is something I held onto because I felt I deserved it or maybe I thought it was who I was, well God showed me, that is not true. I am His, I am a child of God. So that’s it, what I had to say tonight, why I wanted to post tonight and of course the tonight’s picture is here. ha

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

The Orange Petals

Yes, I went shopping for flowers again and yes I decided to use them as my subject tonight. I really love using different forms of lighting and not always use the flash.  

I am learning day by day to accept myself, learning to change the things I can and accept the things I cannot change.  It’s really difficult to accept yourself as you are, especially when you feel as though others see those characteristics that are not the greatest, but I am learning to not let it worry me so much.  Okay for tonight that is all I have, I am once again tired and ready for some sleep.

Good Night my friends!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!! 

The Look away

The Cutie.jpg

Very excited to get this picture, as this girl does not roam the house much, so super happy she showed her face in public and I was able to capture this photo.

I didn’t post last night, because well I simply forgot.  Now you might be asking yourself, how can someone who has been posting a blog every night for almost a year forgot, well let me introduce to my brain … this thing that is supposed to work, think and remember things, but in fact, doesn’t always work, occasionally thinks and rarely remembers anything.   Thankfully I remembered tonight, took a good picture and as you can see posted on my blog.  I really need to learn to focus more …. focus, focus, focus!!!!

Good night my friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep positive and smile!!!

The Green

Green Eyes

Once again it’s my Josephine, but seriously this girl is always willing and so patience as I try to find just the right lighting …. love her so much (she is my favorite, but don’t tell the others).

You know I am not sure how many read my blog, but I know at least one who reads what I have to say.  It is actually pretty awesome, because she noticed I have been sounded down  and I seemed to be filled with a lot of self-criticism lately.  Well of course she is right, because I struggle with liking myself, I actually come near to loathing myself at times.  I am getting better at accepting myself for who I am, which I guess isn’t as bad as I think it is, after all there is some good in all of us (I just seem to see all my bad points and not much of the good).  So I shall try harder to be kinder to myself and in turn, be kinder to others.  I am thankful for those friends who are there to remind you that you are okay just the way you are and they kind of like you for you!!!

It’s that time again, time for me say good night.  Remember my friends, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.


The Glass

The Glass-5

I found this one fascinating, this is a thick piece of glass. I was just looking for something and there it was and now we have it.

Today is a little sad for me, 10 years ago today my dad went to be with the Lord and I miss him so much!!! My mother had passed away when I was 18 so dad was all I had left and then he was gone.  I still feel as though I am an orphan, no parent to love me unconditionally and that is what we do.  As I long to have my parents with me, so many leave their parents, they don’t communicate, they don’t seem to want to see them or spend time with them.   So very sad, we love are children and they don’t seem to care, they don’t seem to need us, but I sure still need mine and I still need my parents, even now, at my old age.   One day maybe they will realize just how much they do need us, want to be around us and give us a big hug and tell us how much they love us.  Maybe you will hug your parents for me, because I sure would love to hug mine.

I am including one more picture tonight, my dad, who I love and miss with all my heart.  This person, along with my mom, put up with a lot and still loved me, was still there for me and well was just wonderful.


One of my favorite pictures of my dad.

I shall now bid you all good night and sweet dreams, that is if that applies to you.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.
