#182 is Francine Cronos and #231 is Jona Panesa. I will be sending these ladies an email ASAP, and I can't wait to see which pendant they pick!

Again, thank you to all who visited and entered my drawing. Please come back to see me, don't be a stranger! Oh, and I was actually a winner in a giveaway too! I will be posting about it later when I get a spare 10 minutes....Maxwell the cat had surgery yesterday and then today there was a scare that his stitches came out. More on that later too, but he is fine, just having to deal with wearing a hard plastic cone around his precious neck, and that is requiring adjustments from the whole household let me tell ya! I am going to try to get a pic of him...when I picked him up at the vet's yesterday she warned me that he looked like a character out of a Tim Burton movie, and she was right...bless his heart!

Have a great Friday!

tomorrow is the day!

Yes, hard to believe but tomorrow is the big day for the OWOH drawings around the blogosphere. I wanted to post a last minute pic of the new girls that have been added to the series so those of you who have entered my drawing will have even more pendants to choose from. And if you haven't entered yet, go here before 10 PM Eastern tonight and leave a comment. I'll be posting the winners tomorrow, and it may be the evening before I get the winners chosen and a chance to post/contact them, but it will be before 8 PM Eastern. What fun this has been!

about to chill

It's been a rough week. I'm trying to dig deep and find the source of the emotional state I'm in, because nothing has actually happened to cause this funk, for lack of a better word. I have a few theories that I am exploring, one of which is I'm just TIRED. Those of you who work a full time job while trying to create the job you really want in the hours that are left over know what I'm talking about. It's hard. It's frustrating. About every two weeks I have a good cry and ask myself if it's worth it. And so far every cell of my body has cried out "YES IT IS! DON'T STOP NOW!" I've worked my ass off this week, so it's ok if I'm a little grumpy and look like hell...I'm giving myself a break. And speaking of breaks...bright and early Saturday morning me and hubby are flying off into the wild blue yonder for a few days. The change of scenery combined with spending time with my favorite person is sure to get me back on track, and probably couldn't be coming at at better time.

The pic below was taken at Metairie Cemetary in New Orleans about a year ago. It seemed to sum up pretty well how I've been feeling lately. And the pic above is a tree in a beautiful old cemetary right here in Greensboro, Greenhill. I love love love cemetaries.

And one other thing before I go to bed...yes, I am posting this at 9:30 and yes, I am headed to bed immediately after I hit "publish"...I guess I didn't realize how time consuming it would be to reply to everyone who enters my OWOH giveaway. I have replied to some, or visited your blogs and entered your giveaways, and would love nothing more than to reply to each and every one of you, but right now it just isn't possible. I am going to try to keep responding little by little, but if you have left me a comment and you don't hear from me, come back and visit in a few weeks when things have gotten back to normal and say hello again, wont you? I cherish your words and your kindness, and connecting with you does my soul good. Namaste.

The Eve of 51

Just writing the title made me burst into tears.  Not for growing older...I'm thankful for every day in this lifetime.  Not for physical...
