|Key West Rain|
But, right now it is way Too Chilly and way Too Wet at my house !!! Were is the Sunshine ???
I want to spend time in my garden . I want to plant some new things and find fresh inspiration in the flowers that are blooming.
But, week after week we have had rain .And not just any rain !
Thunder ,lighting, twister producing ,windy rain!!!
I am very tired of it !!!
I am not an ungrateful person .
I realize some people could use more rain and for some people rain has caused disaster.
I pray for those whose lives are affected by recent floods .
This post is just about my superficial grouchiness .
I keep a very special picture on my desk to lift my spirits in times like these .The photograph was taken by my daughter two years ago while we were vacationing in the Florida keys.
We were very excited to begin a shopping trip to Key West .
But ,we had to sit in the stuffy car and wait out a long rainstorm .
Not about to waste a moment of her precious vacation time,
my daughter started taking pictures of the rain.
This is my favorite, a bright flower petal that blew onto the hood of our car . I keep it on my desk to remind me to enjoy every moment I possibly can.
The photo also brings back wonderful memories of our trip.
The current rainy weather certainly placed a damper on my intentions to work with flowers both real and polymer!
I had planned to make new floral pendants and bead sets .
But , I couldn't seem to get started on them.
My heart just wasn't in the project.
Instead, my rainy day photo made me dream of the Florida Keys!
My head said make flowers. But, my heart said sun , sand and sea !
So I've been working on beach /ocean inspired designs .
They brought me some needed Sunshine for my soul !
This week try following your heart
Bead Happy !
