Dear Koralee, the ripples of your kindness and positivity are felt with every post. I just hope I can send out a little wave, as small as it is, of happiness out in the world. Today will bring nothing but smiles and gratitude for our very breath. Have a wonderful Monday, lovely lady. Xoxo

I could have used the rain boots around here today! My daughter got here yesterday...she hasn't been home since last May. You can imagine how much fun we are having doing almost nothing and loving it!

Lori E said...

Is a day wasted if you do nothing? Or did you use that day to perfection because nothing is exactly what you needed to do for yourself and you sanity.

Lynn said...

A perfectly sweet sentiment. Take care and have a fun week!

tinajo said...

How lovely - now you´ve made me smile! :-)

♥Ingrid♥ said...

Hello Koralee,again a beautiful picture,I love the idea.....have a lovely day today.....x

Colores said...

great picture!!! enjoy teh day you, too!!! kisses

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Koralee! YOU FOUND OUT WHAT IS CAUSING YOUR BACK PAIN!!!! YIPEEEEEE! I am always one who wants to know the cause so one can carry on and KNOW HOW to manage it! Excellent...at least exercises can help you! Now I NEED to get in soon to see what this hip/thigh thing is all about! However, last night, I started feeling the same sensation, NOT PAIN, in my wrists..not the joints, but in the area of my lower forearm....what in the world....so I best go in but we have some bills to pay first. Like I have said even though we have insurance, the COPAY is ridiculous!!!! THANK YOU DEAR ONE FOR YOUR PRAYERS! And yesterday was a wild day, but I have not yet heard anything from the results of the meeting with a concerned parent whose daughter is in my English class...I am hoping that since I had not heard anything immediately, that all is well....oh I do need a sunny spot to visit!!! Let's see...how about the SOUTH OF FRANCE with a final visit up to VANCOUVER so I may bask in the SUNSHINE OF FRIENDSHIP with you and Rosie dear.....

Love and blessings to you and yours my dear, Anita

francis said...

Sweet Koralee , the cuddlecoat is waiting and waiting for my granddaughter.... this is the month ! I have been doing a great job keeping my diet of just looking . Absolutely terrible but for a good cause . Had to do it for my back but becoming a grandmother helped me a lot to hang on .... Must look good on the pictures ! Have been to the hairdresser ...highlights for the first time !
So ....I'm ready for the transformation !
still 2 weeks to go but you never know ....
Many happy groetjes
