Colorful Calm

 

Just as the rainbow promises Hope after the rain, so does a garden in bloom.  If you'd like to see mine, please click on the smilebox creation below.  My images seem to be too large, and some of the petals are cut off, but so be it....  :o/

AOL won't let me post albums any longer ~ Something to do with my browser.  I'm assuming it's the change in computers and nothing else.  No, I haven't gotten a new one and most likely won't be getting one for a while.  For now, I'm content (grateful, really) for the use of my daughter's. 

Speaking of my daughter....  Thank you, for the kind and supportive words I received after my previous rant.... uh, post.  Of course, things settled down and improved greatly as that particular evening went on.  Just recently, she pointed out that she tells me things her friends would NEVER tell their parents.  THAT, my dear friends, is good to know. 

I also have another vehicle now, so the problem is mostly just financial at this point.  I have two catering jobs coming up and another possibility or two in the making, so for now, I'm doing okay. 

Life is good.  I've been enjoying it lately, which is a plus.  Let's hope it stays that way.

Hope you enjoy the photos ~

Computers will always be a mystery to me.. always something not compatible with something else.. no matter how much you update.  I am just happy if I can do my e-mail, online banking and journal.

Any kind of nature can usually cheer me up. I love being near water, or fields, or seeing the sun shine through the trees.. Flowers are an extra special beauty.  Your flowers are gorgeous and a wonderful way to surround you with peace.

Financial woes will always attack us.. just keep tackeling one problem at a time.
YEA!! A different car.. no more getting stranded or not starting!!!

I really liked your smilebox creation.  You did a good job.  Glad you have a vehicle and a couple of jobs coming up, and I'm glad things are well with you and your daughter.

Beautiful display of flowers! I'm just beginning my adventures in gardening - and of course I had to do it with another new journal... http://journals.aol.com/lifes2odd/going-green/

Forgive how late i am.
Those flower pics are HEAVENLY. You DO have a gift thru photography. I am glad you have another car.....i am glad you have the catering jobs to help too.....and you know what? ANY time that a teen comes to YOU and talks from their heart, even about the mundane things or the big, secret and scary things, that is a gift. That means you are connecting with them and the HARDEST thing on earth to achieve is the trust of a teen.
i love you TRULY.
