so, as you all know, the Rhonna 21 day challenge has come to a screching halt....all because of the corrupt, evil, no good, good for nothing...I will stop there....it does no good to rant, we need to keep encouraging Rhonna to continue on..... We MUST NOT leet the bad & ugly get the best of us...God allows hardships to teach us about ourselves and our strengths..FIND THE BLESSING IN THE BATTLE!
here is a quote to help her and help us continue on.
...Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed. - Corita Kent
Happy Monday...day thirteen of the 21 challenge...71 degrees at 5:00 am in Orange County CA, humitity 78%, slight breeze...a bit tropical but I can not see the beach from my window...I do hear some birds though & if i close my eyes & smell my sunscreen, I pretend that I am in Maui....dreamy!
okay, so back to real life, before I post day 11/12.... it is done.... just not colored yet, I came across this www.autumnleaves.com/meBlog ( challenge and squeeked out a page this morning...)
whoops...here is my day 10...on day eleven...its okay,right? I dont like to be late....I am really trying to "pratice what I preach" and not go "postal" on my computer...is it Typepad, or just my computer? breathe, focus, pace ...
Day Six...what A great quote to wake up to! I needed it too because I had ALOT to do early this morning so that I could lay by the pool prior to continuing the rest of my work from home day...soo, for those of you who don't know me, my creative engine fires up each day at about 3:40 am...so I got up, put on my multi-tasking hat (actually a Hurley hat) strapped on my apron (suzy homemaker!) got my GIGANTIC cup of coffee with hazelnut nut cream (yum!) and started in on modge podgeing two gallon paint cans for Father's day gifts, baked 12 dozen chocolate chip cookies for an order on Monday, frosted & completed 4 cakes (that need to be delivered prior to 2pm, but after the pool) four loads of laundry and completed Day Six of my journal....
Now, it sounds like alot, but for me, they are the things I love and pretty much do on auto pilot, so, to go with my self-proclaimed title of "Simply Complicated" the things above are the the "Simple" things for today....the complicated part of this morning is that it is OVERCAST!
at first glance, I was thrown by today's quote....had to re-read it...a few times...all that came to mind were negative things...I think because of the word SCARY! I do not like scary things...who does? no scary movies, no scary rides, no scary stories...YIKES! So, after thinking about it for a bit, I started journaling and doodling and here is what I came up with....
P.S...I use chalk pencils, q-tips and my writing for these! Keep it simple!
