what's on your plate?


glory be has my plate been full
and not just with pretty doughnuts
the month of May has been very busy
{please forgive me if I have not visited you....I hope to very soon }

 {xox}

It is not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy.....
remember the bee is praised ...but the mosquito is swatted.

I can relate, May has been a very busy month for myself as well (the days just seem to fly by!). Hopefully I am the busy bee though and not the mosquito :P
This is the second blog post I have seen today with a yummy looking doughnut..I am getting a serious doughnut craving now :)
Wishing you a lovely weekend!

OOoo how very true about those two creatures. One is gathering sweet surprise for us to enjoy and the other one is SUCKING BLOOD OUT OF US! Sounds like some jobs I know...yikes, did I say that? :)

MY DEAR HEART, are you READY TO START VACATION? I still cannot believe that this is FRIDAY. I am in denial! I cannot believe we still have to go in today, as well as I know my students are thinking the same thing!

Well my sweet one, carry on; we are waiting for you!!! LOVE ! Anita

My plate has been pretty full too! I just wish it looked as pretty as yours does here! :) Things don't seem to be slowing down much either. Oh well, God knows all, and everything for his purposes and plans. Times like these I have to TRUST He knows best...:)

Happy weekend to you, dear friend!

wendy said...

So what have you been busy doing??....fun and rewarding things I hope.
Busy is good...no one wants to be swatted (tee,hee)
If your busy enough, I guess they can't catch you. RIGHT.
Have a great Memorial Weekend and be sure to Play amongst all your busy.

How do you do it Koralee? A jewel like doughnut on a sea of enamel and gold: it looks too precious to eat.
