It’s a Choice

There are no bad days. I don’t invite them into my life. When Boss man asks, “How’s life Barb?”, he already knows what my answer will be. He knows I’m gonna say, “Beautiful! Life is simply beautiful!”

He receives the same, or similar answer every time. It’s my choice to either see life as beautiful, or not.

Yesterday, I began my cross stitch that says, ‘Carpe all the Diems.‘ I went to a different store in search of the materials needed. Once again, the bin for the recommended color was empty. This was the second store I had gone to so, I made a choice. I chose two colors that differed from the instructions.

A dark grey for the lettering, and silver for the crown. Sticking to the color used on the pattern wasn’t fruitful. It was time to choose for myself.

It’s overcast and rainy this morning.

I can choose for my mood to reflect the weather, or rise above it. Once my daughter left for class, I set the stage for the type morning I desired. Cozy.

It doesn’t matter what’s going on outside.

What matters is what’s happening inside.

I poured a fresh cup of coffee, lit a candle and sat down to do some cross stitch. Are you loving that basket? It’s wool with cotton trim. It was sitting on the bottom shelf all alone just screaming to go home with me! It holds my supplies and makes me smile.

What is your day looking like?

Remember my lovelies. It’s a choice.

Carpe all the Diems

I walked into a well-known craft store yesterday to pick up some cross stitch supplies. The bin holding the color thread needed was empty.

So, I left the store carrying a box of new landscape lights. Does this happen to you too?

Standing in the checkout line, I scanned the display in front of me and contemplated an additional purchase. I’ve always loved these and I smiled as I reached down and grabbed one. My daughter will think it’s for her, but no my lovely…

It’s for me, but I share good. 🙂

The cross-stitch I will make when I find the supplies says, “Carpe all the Diems.” It has a crown at the top to go along with our Queen B theme.

My hope for you my darling is that you follow suit and Carpe all the Diems.
