Good, I'm not the only one who doesn't get 5th grade Math and forget anything in 11th grade!!!

I hear ya. Today has been housework day and it has been going downhill since morning...I just burnt the heck out of my hand trying to make dinner so it hasn't gotten any better. But, the silver lining is I just remembered I did not have my Dr. Pepper yet for the day so I'm going to turn on the t.v. and veg out while I get my caffeine fix.

How many times a day I'm thankful for you...at least 84 times a day!! I love the pictures. The last one of you behind the lens is FABULOUS!!! I love those chicken/rooster...is that a chicken or a rooster??

You're beautiful...just in case no one has told you that today!♥

it's also how many tissues I've used with the allergy season just beginning hehe
I hope you are better, remember that God loves you and you are His Precious Princess no matter how bad things get, He's always with you and loves you unconditionally. =)
Hard times will always come, but be strong my friend.

I wish you weren't feeling blue today. Unfortunately, I know what it's like to feel that way.
Go grab a cuppa, a book or magazine and sit in the sunshine and escape into someone else's world for a little while. That helps sometimes.
Thank you for blessing us so often with your beautiful photos. I look forward to new posts from you all the time!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I'm so glad you found me here in the blogosphere! xx

Mighty M said...

Aw, I hope you cheer up soon. Tell Kaishon to "stay" when you hug him. I am SURE that will work!! :)

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

I hate those days when you are feeling blue. I have had many of days like that. Fortunately today is not one of those days... but I am sure some time by the end of the week I will be having my blue day...

i hope tomorrow is a better day

Skeller said...

woohooo! a self-portrait!!! y'know, we all want to see more of you, Becky!!!

I'm sorry today is a "blue" day. And I'm super sorry Gary worked so much and so long. I mean, work is good & pays the bills and all. But too much is too much. :-(

I'll pray today and the rest of the week get more "yellow" for you ...

...::Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride::... said...

Well I hope tomorrow is a much better day for you!! :)

Martha in PA said...

I'm sorry you are blue today... I had a good quiet day. We need to figure out a time to get together - Freddy Hill? Merrymead? somewhere else?????

Kristina P. said...

I'm more tired than blue. But I often think they have to do with one another.

Kimmy said...

I'm sorry you're blue though :o( Hope the sunshine starts to peek through your soul soon!

Yay for the self portrait there at the end...that is a rare treat. :) Hope you feel less blue tomorrow.

Buckeroomama said...

When she saw the pic with the chicken's head, Z said, "Mommy, look at the tongue (the wattle)!" And then she asked, "Why is he holding the chicken?"

You always write with such warmth, Becky! :)

I hope Gary gets a break and you guys can spend more time together. :)

Ginny said...

This is all beautiful. I'm grey.. I might not be 30 yet, but I had more than 84 white hairs before I graduated high school. :)

The homework thing gets difficult, doesn't it as the child gets older?
As usual, your photos are magnificent.

Marie said...

Lovely post with many nice images. Í´m fine thanks but I can feel the autumn coming closer with darkness and chill.

Marilyn said...

Ah, I'm so sorry you are blue. I hope things brighten up for you. Maybe counting the good things will help. I try and do that when I am blue but usually fail. Ha

Love Letters To China said...

I hear ya about those gray hairs! I'm getting real close to buying one of those boxes at the drug store. ;-)

Hope you're feeling better real soon!

Colleen: said...

I'm so sorry that you are feeling a little bit down today. Hope you feel your regular happy self very soon. Amazing that even when you are a little blue, you still take the time to make us all smile! Thank you Sweetie!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Mental P Mama said...

I could never do the math after third grade. And I hope your blues are gone today;)

Maddy said...

I hear you loud and clear!! And I'm so happy to see a little bit of that beautiful face today! Hope you're week ends on a better note. So when are we going to get together?? Just let me know! I want to hang out with you soon :)

Brooke said...

i'm sorry that you're feeling down :( not a great way to start your week. hopefully things will start to look up.

TechnoBabe said...

You miss Gary when he put in so many hours at work. Hope you have special time with him soon.

Bunch of Barrons said...

Hope your feeling better soon! Love your pictures today! Have a great Tuesday. :)

April said...

I'm doing pretty well. Chris stays on the road all the time, anymore, so we hardly ever see each other. Then, I miss Brittany a lot, but she's so happy, so it's hard to feel too sad. Abby just lost one of her 8th grade classmates on Friday. He was hit and killed by a car. Really puts things in perspective.

Hollywood Farm Films said...

Love your photos, and looking a K with that chicken is making me miss mine! WAHHH

Jabacue said...

We all have 'blue' days. I try to learn from them....there is always something to be learned from these. And besides, we all know they do not last forever!
Yes, you have a great 'eye'.

urban muser said...

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Sending hugs and good thoughts, and of course, saying a prayer. Hope today was a better day.

photowannabe said...

Hmmmm???? I thought I had left a comment this morning. I guess it went to cyberspace.
I'm so sorry you are blue. If I could I would be there to wrap my arms around you and give you a big hug. I know its trite, but things will get better.

Just Bits and Pieces said...

Booooo! My husband works a lot....not usually that much, but there's been periods that he doesn't have a day off for 5 weeks straight....I hope you had a better day today...and tomorrow....

Danelle said...

Great photos, as always! Don't worry, I don't get the math either. I think we know how to do it, just not the way the kids are supposed to do it!
