If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear." Winnie the Pooh

How did your day go yesterday? I really don't think the stars were aligned.
Mine was a series of annoyances. Including but not limited to: bad hair day, shoe falling apart, seeing kittens beside the road that were obviously dumped and getting caught in a rainstorm when I was walking at lunch. But my grievances paled in comparison to a co-worker's. While driving to work she was behind a truck that had a portable basketball hoop in the back unattached. You know the one's that are on a long post and roll around on wheels. You've probably figured out where this story is going. Yup, you guessed it. It flew out of the back of the truck, luckily landed in front of my friend's car instead of on it then bounced to the side of the road. The driver of the pickup......just kept going.

Power Stones revisited

Need a crystal reference? Power Stones has been re-released with Smashwords. Download price: $2.99. Like the cover? I took a picture of some of my stones then turned it over to Bev Haynes to work her magic.

Our love affair with stones and crystals is deep and long abiding. We lust for them, we use them daily in our lives and often we turn to them for guidance and surcease.
Crystals have been used through the ages for all facets of life. In olden times, Britons wore agates to protect their skin. Frogs carved from amber were worn by the ancients for fertility. During the renaissance an amethyst was commonly engraved with a bear and worn as a protective amulet. Bloodstone was used in the distant past by Egyptians to break bonds and crumble stone walls. They used carnelian to dissipate hatred and ground malachite for eye shadow. Rubies were known as carbuncles in former times and were deemed the perfect gift for Buddha. Ground turquoise was used by the Navajo in sand paintings to attract rain. And the list goes on.

Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock. ~Henry Ward Beecher, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers

Hope the Easter Bunny was good to you and that that your Easter basket overflowed. And yes, the Easter Bunny remembered my Fannie Mae. If you're a misplaced mid-westerner, checkout their website, as of Saturday their Easter candy was 50% off.

Manic Monday

Of all the days I hate the most, Monday is my favorite.


Here's a head scratcher for you. No one interferes with the 'right to bear arms' yet a principal is telling her students that they can't bring sack lunches. They either eat from the school lunch program or go hungry. And its for their own good, of course. Does this make any sense to you?

I'm blogging today at Night Writers on Snowshoes. Nope, not the kind you put on your feet in cold weather. The four-legged variety. If you're in the vicinity please drop in and say 'hey.'

North Carolina takes second place for.......
worst roads in America. I can attest to this as I'm always looking for a new route to work to avoid the potholes.

Plants and Ethics

A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.

Night Writers

I'm blogging today at Night Writers on cat allergies and what you can do about it.
Other than jamming my finger during kickboxing it was an uneventful week.
Hope yours was filled with fun and accomplishment.
