When one can't sleep because she dove into bed at 8pm and back up and at the computer at 2am, a bagel with strawberry jam and left over coffee with Vanilla creamer hits the spot! I know. It's NOT good..but I can't SLEEP I tell you!
I have a question. I don't think I am going to like the answer..but..Shelia's last tabletop post has given me a bit of a heads up..and as sweet as her encouragment is when I mentioned it to her...I am..well..thrown.
You see..I like silks..good ones of course :) but silks never the less. You can hardly tell them from the real and besides it is nice not to have to water them..although I do have a couple of live plants in the house right now. (NOT in great shape.)
The question is about ..I cringe here...silk greenery on top of my cabinets...
YES..I have that and now I understand it is...not thought to be really..the thing to be doing fashion wise. I love the look. I do. I have them on my fireplace..to hide that it is uneven..and on top of my cabinet in the living room. Etc. etc.
You know how you see things around your home, but you don't really? I am afraid I have done that. Hung onto an old decorating fashion and not even known it. Now that I think about it..my daughters don't have them. They have never said anything..but still. It's like wearing white lipstick after it is ten years out of fashion. You know what I mean? I would have never known had I not read Shelia's post on NOTE SONGS.
She defends using them too..and told me to never mind..and do what makes me happy, that she certainly is...but...perhaps it is time for a change.
I love this little wooly sheep with his velvet face and feetsies! He sits on my desk...sometimes above it and sometimes in front of me. I think he likes me! :)
Of course I have more serious things on my mind than ivy and whether it is in fashion or not. Lots of them..or I wouldn't be sitting here trying to turn off my mind and relax. Earthquakes all over the place and the economy, getting old and struggling with health problems..just all of it.
But here is the thing. My family is well and I thank God for that. They have worries like everyone because they have businesses that are struggling and children trying to start out in life during hard times. But that has always been the case over the last century and will be over this one.
We all have our worries..our hurts..our reasons for not being able to sleep sometimes..but we have each other. Right?
I like to think we do.
Hugs and love,
p.s. NO NO! Shelia said NOTHING to me. I was only reading her post and asked her about the greenery thingy..and she immediately tried to tell me NOT TO WORRY! THAT SHE WAS GOING TO USE HERS AND WHY SHE USED IT! She never did or said one word to
LOL :) cause me any loss of sleep. :) She read this and worried...oh dear! It's ok Sweet Shelia!!
