What is it that they say about good intentions again???? Well, all I know is that my heart and thoughts were in the right place but time keeps slipping away from me...I think I need more hours in a day to just blog...and then let life and everyone else just wait until I am good and ready to deal with them...do any of you ever feel like that?....please tell me I am not the only one :)
Everyone left me such wonderful Birthday wishes on not only my blog, but on Dawns and Cynthia K's and I can honestly tell you that although I was missing my mr wonderful on my special day....you all made it so special for me with all your beautiful and wonderful wishes that not only was my birthday special...but even with all the crappy weather and bad thunder storms we had and having to be out driving in them each day for most of the mornings and afternoons, I can honestly tell you that even with all this and my wet frizzy hair and soggy clothes... because of all of you... my spirits were up all week...I Thank you again :) My intentions were to visit each one of you that left me such wonderful birthday wishes and personally thank you...well as hard as I have tried to... I have only made it to a handful of you :( With mr wonderful back in town late Friday afternoon, trying to spend time together as a family, running errands and preparing for the new week, we have been so busy...his duffle bag filled with his clothes sits at the base of the stairs still unpacked and dirty clothes unwashed...but on a good note we got to spend family time together, visited my dad with flowers and spent some time with my mama...a new week is here and it starts all over again...To be honest we haven't even gotten a chance to celebrate with one of my wonderderful giftcards I got for Christmas...hmmm Chilis and OutBack sure sound yummy about now :) Then to help matters...today we are supposed to have a new storm come in, I am hoping that I can remain online this time (no lightening) and visit as many of you as I can and thank you for your kindness and just see what all of you are up to in your own busy lives and see what beauties some of you are creating...I miss that...my time...where did it go?? If you find it...please let it know I am desperately searching for it :)
So please know that while my heart is in the right place....time isn't co-operating with my plans at this moment :) But I am trying....

I don't know if you all have heard of the Artist Class or not, I signed up for them through Dawn of The Feathered Nest, The Artist Class button is towards the top of her blog in a beautiful black & white button, but I am sure you can sign up through some of the other instructors, I believe they have the Artist Class Button and info on their own blogs too, I just don't have that info at the moment. I can't wait for them to start...I am really excited and a lil scared about trying something new and creative...but my promise to myself for the New Year was to listen to my creative heart and not let fear keep me from trying new and wonderful artistic things and techniques....With these Artists Classes, I hope to, as my favorite saying goes..."I hope to close my eyes and just leap"...I hope many of you will leap with me, if you can. Then again...many of you are so talented and already know how to do many of these things :) Lucky ducks....well daggum it...I wanna be a lucky duck too lol....
Now... I don't know if you noticed or not but.....I am Celebrating myself....I have reached that wonderful milestone of 100 Followers!! Thank you La Plaza for becoming my 100th Follower! (gracias y muchos besos) I know...I can't believe it myself...I am overwhelmed by everyones kindness and you know like I said before, one of the neatest things about having someone become a follower of my blog is that when I go to visit them and thank them, I end up finding a beautiful new blog to not only visit and dream but to become a follower of their blog myself :) So as a thank you...I am going to have my own Giveback very soon! (like in a few days) I am getting some things together for it now, I will let you know more info on my next post! Please be patient with me :) Thank you everyone for being so generous with your time and visiting my lil blog, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do when I visit your own wonderful & beautiful blogs!
Until next time dear friends,
