Positive Thoughts This Friday

Happy Friday!
It looks like it is going to be an amazing weekend
and
it has started already.

This morning, around 6:30 my phone rang.
A sweet voice said:
Hellooooo Robi! Guess who came last night?
GERTRUDE!!!
{Gertrude is Matilda's Elf On The Shelf}

Can you imagine any better way to start the day?

We "face timed" so I could see the dress.
Gertrude was dressed in....
 like Clara from The Nutcracker.

I love this photo of Gertrude.
How wonderful children are
with their imaginations and hopes.

This time of year is for the children
and 
for the faithful.
Positive energy can even perk-up
a Grinch if done the right way.


If you by chance know a Grinchy,
do your best and smile your hardest.

I plan on doing the same thing.
Love you.

Around The Next Corner

I am sitting at my work table, 
knitting a cute top for Christmas parties.
It is still early and I am waiting for COSTCO to open.
Today I must buy Champagne, a standing rib roast,
a rotisserie chicken, salad and fruit.
A few of these things are for holiday gatherings.

While sitting here,
I ordered all of the photos from our holiday.
{401 of them!}
I found one shot that I had forgotten about....
and it still makes me  smile.

It was early one afternoon,
and we were up in Montmarte. 
Larry loves Montmarte but I find it uninspired
and
sad how some people try to cash in on 
the reputations of others. {ARTists}

BUT, I saw this creative face, high on the side of a building.
 Eyes closed, facing the heavens
and
I fell in love...is it Angel?  Human? 
Is it a blank face that we can imagine our face on?

Just when I was grumpy and not enjoying Montmarte...
ART was sent to me in the form of
line, color{less} form and joy.

Someday I will learn
and try to enjoy every second of every day
even when I am grumpy.
You never know what joy you will find 
around the next corner...
Love you.
