Last night I was wondering why Don & Rhett needed one of my mixing bowls.... they were making water bombs in the bathroom. I made the mistake of walking in on them right as Don was attempting to tie one of the bombs. It burst and went ALL OVER ME!!! Don just killed himself laughing at me. I changed my shirt which was hanging on a knob in the bathroom. I kept wondering why it was wet too. DUH! I just left that one on because it wasn't as wet as the other one. I couldn't escape it - not that I really wanted to. Then they took them out on the deck to drop them down below.
Stayed up way too late working on the collage again. Got another idea for it... and ran with it. Don got up, came in the living room to ask me if I knew what time it was. I really wasn't aware of time, but knew it was late.
This morning I had another idea... making a scrapbook of all the quotes that I personally came up with. I can just see it now....
Quotes of the Day:
Refrain from envy. No one has it as good as it seems.
-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.-
(This quote reminded me of how I wanted a long, slender single mixer like my mother-in-law had so Don got me one for Christmas. I usually don't like getting appliances for Christmas or my birthday, but was willing to break my rule. I used it for the 1st time the other Sunday morning to make the Jello cookies & cream desert I take to church once a month. It did not work as well as my blender. I had to get the blender out to finish mixing the ingredients. So be careful what you wish for... you just might get it and not like it. It brings a whole new meaning to Thou shall not covet.)
Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of the heart. -unknown-
Take along a small camera when attending a party. Then tuck in a few snapshots when you send your host a thank-you note.
-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.-
We choose your state of mind,
just as we choose our behaviors and our paths in life.
So choose to do something great today for yourself and others- be positive!
Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain.
They steal your energy and keep you from love.
I am trying as hard as I can,
and sometimes things don't go your way, and that's the way things go.
Ladies, leave your clothes here and spend the afternoon having a good time.
-sign on a Rome laundry-
There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Life is like a mirror, if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting

When I went to save this post, I thought I'd lost it & did NOT want to retype it all again! Drove to the library to pull it up and there it was... thank goodness. I was never so happy to see the title "Water Bombs" as today. I had another idea... on the way to the library. Needed batteries for Rhett's voice recorder. It was a good one but I can't recall it now. Maybe it will come back to me... I was noticing the clouds in the sky... thinking even on a cloudy day, there is beauty in the clouds. Wish I could remember it now.
