My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Pink Saturday 1/5/2011

This is one of the very, very few and rare times I compose a blog post and post it the same day. But as I've said before I'm being a slug lately and today is no different.

It's raining and foggy here in the desert. I tried to get something new to post but I just can't get into getting out and finding something. I'm still in the thinking process of how we can get the maximum amount of space out of our 1800 s.f. house. It's a challenge and I'm so hesitant to give/throwaway/sell a lot of stuff, but when it comes right down to it, that's exactly what will be happening.

We had a gathering at our house monday night and a man who has never been here before walked in and his first words after looking around were "busy house." Even though it's true, it took me aback and I'm still deciding if I was offended. Men rarely, if ever, comment on these kind of things. Oh, they've said things like "A pink house?" but nothing as jarring as that. Knowing neither he nor his wife will ever read this I feel safe in posting it here. More random thoughts later.

I do give you "eye candy" though. I went outside and photographed this little vignette with my flash on and way back in some and very up close in others. I ordered and received these lovely pink candles a couple of weeks ago and just love the pinkness of them.

In this one my nose was practically touching the rose! I was extremely close, set it for closeups and shot away. Just starting to distort the rose, but still lovely enough to share with you. I love photography!!! Oh, and I cropped it up close as you can see. It all works together to get perfection.

Random Thoughts:

I usually speak "meaningful eye contact" with Love Bunny. Sometimes it's the only way to let him know how serious I am about things. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean.

So many people have difficulty acknowledging the existence of evil; they hoped to wish it away through positive thinking, to counsel it into remorse through psychotherapy or to domesticate it with compassion. This is entirely fraudulent thinking and not possible. Trust me, I've been in the presence of evil and it has a different look. I knew that there was no way possible to save that person. It was truly frightening. I've also known a few people who have witnesses it and their thoughts are exactly the same as mine were.

I wasn't particularly fond of high school. No, contrary to popular belief, those are NOT the best memories of your life. Those will all come later when you have more wisdom than you do from 14 to 18 years of age. I wasn't among the most popular girls in high school and I've truly glad because it's given me a different perspective than the so called "popular" ones. They were completely absorbed in themselves and some have lived tragic lives because of them. I lived a normal life and am happily married to my original husband after 50 years. Most of them are divorced. One girl I knew couldn't give up this guy who was several years older, a complete loser but she got pregnant and eventually divorced. She was gorgeous and could have had just about any guy, but....well, you know what I mean. It's such a waste. A few have ended their lives. But I have to think what my first heartthrob is doing now and what he missed out on. Nope, they didn't flock to me and I feel sorry for what they missed out on. My hubby thinks he's just about the luckiest guy in the world. But he's wrong; I am!

Have you ever noticed how some lies wrap around us smugly? Uh oh.

So with that and trying not to bore you too much, I'll end here for today, go walk the treadmill (ugh!) and then eat lunch and read a book. Happy day to you all!
