After the Rain

Thought I would take some pictures of the gardens today after the rain. I love the look of flowers with raindrops, poised on the edge of the petal, ready to fall at a moment's notice.

Traditions of Thanksgiving

HUMMM, it seems like the traditions of Thanksgiving vary with different stages of life. When I was a child, it was going over to my Grandparents house. When I started flying, it was always flying. I spent the first Thanksgiving I was flying in San Francisco. The entire FA crew was out of my class - 3 weeks of experience. Talk about deer in the headlights. But we had fun even though we were away from home. Now We either have Thanksgiving at my house or a relative's house. When it is at my house, the best tradition is my husband ALWAYS does the turkey, he either smokes it or deep fries it. YUMM! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Beyond the Blue

The Carnival theme this week is to blog about anything to do with your work (past, present or future) which is outside of Etsy. That's a super easy one for me...I am a retired flight attendant.
Sometimes I wonder where the time went. I can still remember certain flights, people and places like yesterday, but the time factor is just a blurb. ( I took early retirement).
I do miss going to Europe every weekend. Most of the time it was just a 24 hr layover, so I either went out and started exploring right away or "crashed". I wasn't one of those who could nap for 3 hrs and then get up and go out and stay out until night time.
One time I had a 2 day layover in Dublin and remember looking around the table that evening in the pub and thinking I am tired of you people, I want to go home. So I tried not to do long layovers again.
Now I enjoy creating items for my etsy shop, watching my boys play sports, talking with my daughters and gardening.

Autumn is Officially Here

Hi Ya'll, it's fall! Such a beautiful time of the year. The oppressive heat and humidity of summer are gone and now it's gorgeous outside! Open windows, cool nights for sleeping, GA football...GO DAWGS!!!!
One of my favorite memories of fall is raking the leaves into big piles and jumping into them over and over again. Now that I'm grown, I realize it was a trick to get us to help with the yard work, but that's okay, it was fun.

My Favorite Color

I just LOVE color. If I had to pick one favorite color, it would be blue, or wait, maybe red, green, TURQUOISE, pink, AQUA, can see my problem. Bold and bright, cool and calming, color is a design element that allows you to express yourself. So for the moment, I'll go with blue.

Something I Did as a Child...

I remember going over to my Grandparent's house almost every Sunday. We would play and Granny would always have candy in the cupboard. We gobbled it up because we didn't get many sweets at home. Our parents would come back over for dinner and then we would return home.
While at our grandparents we would play, ride on the riding lawn mower with Grandaddy, watch movies on TV (black and white), craft, or just hang out. There was no air conditioning and I remember it being SOOOO HOT!!! They would turn on this big window fan in the back room and crack the front door to try to draw some air through the house. Well, I guess you know I am no spring chicken by now, but those were the days!
