Remember last Sunday...

..when I had sooo much ambition and got sooo much done? That's how much NOT I was today.

Everything I did was an effort. BlahBlahBlah.

Thing is, this is more the "normal me" .. Not too productive - more "laid-back"..

....yeah...that sounds almost as if it's something people need to strive to be more of..."laid back"..

I like that so much better than...plain ol' get-your-bum-off-the-couch-and-do-somethinig-for-crackers-sake... lazy.

OK - so in my laid-back mode, I forgot to show you some of the fun "stuff" I managed to get this week-end..

So, when Betty, Kathy (her sister - we went over that yesterday, remember??) and Jamie were here and we went to Garnder Village, I found a couple of WAY-SALE things...

Pretty little plate (I know it's not MammaSweetieBird- but I can pretend..

This is wooden (like,'s made out of ....pickets....), probably about 4 feet across and 3 feet down

Love, love, love my pillow! About 3 feet long..(and distressed - not dirty...there is a difference)

I even got presents from Betty and Kathy!

Not Betty's Kathy - why would she give me a "Sisters" mug - she didn't even know me..

I guess she could have given it to her sister Betty..who is her sister..but this one is from my sister Kathy...not to be confused with Betty's sister Kathy. Who is not my sister. So she wouldn't give me a mug..well not a Sister's mug anyway..

And Betty brought Mr. B this cute sign for his wester-themed back yard..if the pups were still, you could see that it says "Western Welcome"...which is what you'll get from the pups, and me & Mr. B if you visit!

So, I'll let you go to bed. Or get up. Or craft. Or start your day. Or end it.
Or whatever you feel like doing.
Or not doing.

Not that you have to do something. Or nothing.

You could learn to be more "laid back"..
Like me.......I seem to have it down pretty good.

Laid back is good. It's a state of mind - and body. Every body needs to do it some times more or less. Some people more. Me - less. I stopped by for a visit via Sweet Repose. Nice to see you!

I'm still so confused by the last post, I'm not sure what I'm doing or where I was going before I sat done to the PC, if that's what I was going to do I will try to be 'laid back', if I think that is what I'm supposed to do...and by the way...who am I...and what WAS I doing???


By the way, my word verification is POOEE...HA, go figure...
