Manic Monday

Thanks to Fleur de Lisa for Manic Monday

What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their body language ... and the eyes .. eyes don't lie!

What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
ohhh .. so many songs! Right now it's Colbie Caillat's Fallin' For You

What fashion trend do you just not get?
oh, J would have way to much fun with this question! I am not the fashion guru ..
so trends ... I think I was just recently told that I was dressed in 70's style ...
Jeans, white t-shirt and jean jacket .. 70's??
I think I don't get the show-the-dental floss-jeans .. or too tight hip huggers and the muffin tops show... are those fashion trends? Probably not!

Happy Monday!

This flower/weed/plant (I'm not sure what this is) calls me every morning when I walk to the truck to take the kids to school .. I love frosty mornings in Maine.

Manic Monday

So .. I didn't like this week's Manic Monday, so I chose to take an older one, since I skipped so many opportunities this summer. Thanks to Fleur de Lisa for Manic Monday!

When and with whom was your first kiss?
I was 15.. with Paul. He was Irish. I couldn't have asked for a more gentleman first boyfriend.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
ohhhh YES! Not only do I believe things happen for a reason, but it happens to prepare you for what is to come. I would like to sometimes know WHY things happen, though!
What would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
You done good, come on in! Grab a chair and your wine glass .... let's review, see what you could have done differently and then let's celebrate!

For the weekend update: Great Sunday evening ..Colts won! Even if the Pats had won .. it would have still been a good evening ..

Love Note ..


My sisters and I met again in Amsterdam in September. We are trying to have an “annual sister reunion” .. this was reunion #2.

While walking with sister, Saskia, I saw this note on the ground. I don’t think it needs translation .. but just in case: “hey lovey .. or Hey Love” . The note just struck me .. it says so much without much written. 

Hey Lieffie, Ik hou van jou!
