yesterday hubby stopped by Walmart to purchase the monopoly game
since we were going to be snowed in.
did i mention i hate playing games!
around 6:30pm the games began - son, fiancee, hubby and i.
did i mention she's good at her family's madeup rules.
did i mention i hate playing games!
right away we could see she was out to win and win big.
strategy was her strength and boy did she lineup with hubby.
me - i'm slow at figuring out things plus i was the banker.
end result - hurt feelings - mine of course.
i don't do well when hubby lines up against me even in a game.
isn't he suppose to defend me, protect me! lol even in a game.
End Result - hubby went bankrupt first, then son's fiancee
and well of course that left son and me.
He played pure - meaning by the rules and won
i don't like that little top hat(e) dude!
no more playing the game - i'll stick to watching!

how refreshing and wonderful the feeling is - letting go of the past so i can enjoy the present and look to the future.
i also worked outside in my garden getting rid of broken pieces of pottery and ole' flower baskets. it's looking great! a great book i purchased was "The Declutter 101 Workbook". very
feng shui, though i didn't know that when i purchased it. love the diagrams and such.
at the same time hubby and i are working on a budget and setting goals to enjoy life together.
this has been an amazing year so far, who knew, i would actually be able to "let go" of stuff i have been holding on to forever it seems like - esp. ideas, attitudes and thought patterns. they are going too!!! Free At Last!!

i was late meeting the deadline for my fob.
but i must say i do love how this one stretched me to work.
the fabric is snow-dyed, then i used my great gel pens to paint her.
thank you God for the beautiful day of drear, the rain and all You
have for me, what a glorious, glorious new morning. refreshing!
attached ribbon holder, the halo of beads and letter flower with leaf.
part of the challenge was to use wire so the letter "T" is added on the flower.

clumps of threads - ratty, gorgeous threads. this group formed a flower, even the long piece of fabric was tangled into it and so i decided to leave it there - makes for a wonderful flower.

here is my 2-page layout for Choosing Gratitude, week 2 titled Thankful For. the requirements were it was to be a 2-page layout, to use the title Thankful For, pic 10 pics of same size to place on page and make a list of those 10 everyday things i am grateful for. no one said the pics had to be seen on the page all at one time.
this is canvas painted with watercolor paints. i added chip board letters and dots, paper flower and word "life" with a polka dot ribbon running across the page, attached to the ribbon my "celebrate" tag with the list handwritten on the back. my 10 pics are hidden on the proportion scale. each time you turn the wheel it reveals another gratitude pic. my list of 10: sunset, flower, animals, seeds, clothes, home, marriage, beach, water and clouds. i had always wanted to use the thumbnail prints from my Caribbean cruises and that is what my pics were selected from.
i thought my title letters were originally too big. But as i kept working i really felt impressed that gratitude was the focus of this page not the things i was grateful for. i am so grateful to God for so many things - His faithfulness, His mercy and His love. i realize i need to be thankful in all circumstances no matter what! that is why my pics are virtually hidden unless you rotate the wheel. isn't that how most of us are - our attitude of gratitude is hidden or non-existent? and the list is hidden bc quite honestly whatever we are thankful for changes so quickly. i hear it said abroad that we americans are whiners and ungrateful for all that we do have living in america.
i have a question for you - are your hands open to receive and let blessings flow through you to others or do you tend to close your hands rather quickly to try an hold on to everything?
this study is helping me to realize just how much my attitude can change bc of circumstances.
it ought not to be so - bc of what Jesus Christ did for all of us we should be a steady stream of giving bc our focus is not on us but on Him. let today be a day of giving and thanking Him for all things, all situations and all of life right where we are living. it was the best of times.....regardless
