Rose Petals, Book Pages!

IMG_9803___

~

Roses and books, two of my favorite things. To compare them seems an oddity, yet I never tire of the endless variety of each. Nor of receiving or giving either one and in slightly different but similar ways I receive the same amount of pleasure, although perhaps with a bit of uniqueness to each.

Roses are wonderful to behold and to touch. And although the bloom fades quickly the memory of the fragrance and delicate beauty lasts ~ until the next one. As the bud of a rose slowly unfolds it’s blossoms just so a book unfolds its story through the pages. And at the conclusion of the book, the memory lasts ~ until the next one.

ROSE PETALS, BOOK PAGES

Creation of nature, Creation of man

I partake of your glory

whenever I can

fragrance of flower

touch of written word

rose petals, book pages

seductive allure

*

Dissimilar dichotomy

nothing to share

rose petals, book pages

yet both are there

mine for the pleasure

mine for the ages

I revel in your wonders

rose petals, book pages

Hoping everyone’s week has started off well!

For all you Readers out there …

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

It’s Sunday here in Northwest America and there is nothing, I’ll repeat this, nothing that can beat curling up in a comfortable spot with a good book. In my case, the more mysterious and filled with adventure the better! Can’t talk more, my book is waiting for me.

Have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday. Pick up a good book and read. It will do wonders for you, I promise!

With much affection and do remember to take care of you,

~ Penny

the breeze is blowing,
the birds are singing,
and the lawn mower is broken.”

Reading – Does a Body (and mind) Good!

Reading on a bench

~

Regardless of your age.

Reading is always cool! One of the things I incorporate

into most of my days is taking a little time to read!

I have a book (or kindle) handy

while waiting for appointments or trips to the park.

Relaxing in the evening

with a good book, curled up in a chair is a treat for me.

Have you read a book lately?

Give it a try! A great way to unwind!

Have an excellent day today!

The Minions of It All.

We have officially adopted a handful of “minions” into our household. Their purpose – create laughter and fun in our daily lives … and to remind us not to take (so seriously) the very minor, everyday happenings we may encounter.

The following video is the official  movie trailer for Despicable Me 2! The minions will make you laugh, again and again, in their playful and delightful innocence with all things in life. Enjoy:

(To view directly on Youtube, look for Despicable Me 2 – official trailer.)

~

And I recomment you adopt a few minions for your own home. More chaos, for sure! More laughter and fun – Absolutely!

Have a great day and a better tomorrow!

Those times when it seems that all is well with the world! You’re in the perfect spot to be.

And in that moment you wouldn’t change a single thing!

Have an excellent Wednesday,
