Things are going pretty good.  I am remembering to write 2010 instead of 09...Just less then a month.. I just can't believe this month is over. Seems the older I get the faster it goes, guess that is true for most of us. I always remember hearing people talking about how fast time goes and now it seems I am living in warp speed.  Never enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.  Doing nothing seems more important sometimes.  I have been caught up in the FACEBOOK addiction lately.  Seems I check it before I check my mail most days.  Then it IS my mail most days.  Have really enjoyed SKYPE'N WITH my sister.  Just like a little get together.  Such fun. We laugh so hard. I could talk to her everyday. I have missed her so much over the years.

I am looking forward to February.  Wish it was a longer month. I have a lot of plans for February...The past, present and the future....what a wonderful story..............................DIANE

We are suppose to take a lesson from nature.  Always changing, growing, surviving the storm that life gives us.  Learning to bend a little in the wind, not break.  Shovel a little when it gets too deep and cry a little when it gets too dry.  Life is a lot like nature. It never gives you more that you can bear and always renews its self even changed and stronger.  Hope in the new dawn.  Strength in the new night and Peace in the new day.....................DIANE

Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls of Wisdom is what my Mother always called those little quotes that got you through the little bumps in the road of life. "Life is 10% what happens to you an 90% what you do with what happens to you."  How you handle the bumps that life gives you. The black eye and the bruises. The light at the end of the tunnel. The Rainbow at the end of a storm. The sigh at the end of a good cry.  If we count our BLESSINGS and not our TROUBLES...we will always have more blessings...........Pray for the people of Haiti and the rescue workers............DIANE

The flowers that I got for our anniversary were so beautiful.  I am so glad I could photograph them and look at them long after they are gone.  Christmas is gone for another year, the house lights are down and put away. One more day and they will all be gone until next year.

I don't believe in making New Year Resolutions. I always have things in my head that I would like to change or make time for.

I was Skyping with my Brother last night.  It was so fun and this morning I feel like a kid with a new toy.  Now all I need to keep up with the youngsters is an account for TWEET AND TWITTER.  I have my Facebook, Etsy,Ebay, Flicker, Blog and Art Site......and YouTube......OMG I don't spend too much time on the I???  It's no wonder I haven't had time for Art lately. I have made several beaded necklaces that I need to finish and photograph and post. I have a lot of things to up load to Etsy if I get the time. I am seriously thinking of "Sell, Sell, Sell this year. Maybe some of the collectibles that I have. May check out Ebay. I have bought stuff there for years but never sold. I was wondering if it was any faster to up load and list than resizing everything for Etsy.  Any HELP from my fellow bloggers would be appreciated.

Oh ya I bought a painting from Suzan Buckner. My first from her. Can't wait to get it and see it in person.  I just love her art and my goodness she is productive. I will ask her if I can share what I bought with you.
