This is the Day that the Lord has Made!

flower power
To all my bloggy friends that have flowers galore, this one's for you. I do not have a green thumb, unless some of the green paint gets on it. This has been a lazy Sunday. I was on-call last night and I was up and down talking on the phone quite a bit so I couldn't wake up to get ready for church. I have been working on this picture for my daughter as she loves orange and I had promised her a picture over a year ago. Truth is..I had procrastinated and just got moving on it.
Avery wanted to call it flower power so that is the name. My cousin just called and I hadn't talked to her in years. She said she is shrinking and is now 4'11. She said her son tells her that if she keeps shrinking that when she died they can just put her in a shoebox. I have the funniest cousins. When we are all together we just laugh and laugh. It's so much fun. Avery, Jo, and I hope to go up to Indiana to see them in a few weeks. I can't wait. I hope you guys are having a fabulous weekend. Love to you all.

Oh, gorgeous flower, lush looking.

that was funny about your cousin shrinking. I swear, I always disliked being tall, near 5'11 and I know I'm growing taller, darn, ...what is this about?!? I was hoping to shrink a little as I got older.

I love your picture!

We missed church today, as my youngest was exposed to chicken pox last week and will be contagious as of today...if he gets them. We are hoping for...no.

Everyone is so kind. I hope no one thinks I am fishing for compliments. I made a creative pact with someone and we decided on Sundays for our reveal. I couldn't get the picture right on this one. I actually took a picture of a chunk of my mantel at the bottom of the frame. You guys do make me feel good with your sweet words and I can't deny that. Thanks.

Very beautiful painting! Looks like an O'Keefe close up of a flower.

I love how you jazzed up your blog! How did you do that new background? I have had the same look for a very long time -- I get lazy..lol!

I hope your cousin is taking her calcium!

Hugs, Pat

Trish, Your flower is just fabulous! You are a Nana of many talents. The story about your mother was amazing and very touching. She obviously was a wonderful and very special woman. Thank you for sharing!
