I thought this song was totally appropriate for my little post tonight…..

So I just got a note from Georgia, a new customer that visited me on my LindaGeezToo shop! Such a wonderful person! I like it when people send a note to me, a connection to an otherwise wordless digital transaction! Sales are nice, but a sale and a conversation, priceless :o)

I’ve met so many wonderful people on Etsy, and that is so nice! And Georgia is another wonderful person that made my day! I’ve had a lot of wonderful notes and conversations this week from customers. I got to talk to Susan again, Deva , Vicki, Mary and Laura, all just lovely and their souls were uplifting to me! Wonderful feedback also in my shop, that makes me immediately smile, tilt my head and say ahh, how nice! These people restore my faith in mankind! No seriously, it’s such a fast paced world, and when others just take a time out of their busy schedule to just be nice, well that’s a wonderful thing! Thank you girls, it’s what makes all the time I put into my jewelry making SO worth it! My customers rock my world! 

So, I thought I would put some flower photos up tonight and take a moment to enjoy their beauty!

Poppies!

More Poppies

Clamatis

Early blooms – Flowering Quince

More Flower Quince – early May

Delphinium

So, I hope you enjoy my blooms! I can’t wait to get my garden totally planted this spring, I’m a bit late compared to usual…but weather has been quite different this year in Illinois!

So, I thought I’d add another really pretty song to end the post for today. It’s a such a pretty song by Jason Mraz, enjoy!  04 I Won’t Give Up

Well, I won’t take so long to blog next time, there are flowers in my yard to share!

So when you’re not in the garden, and have time to spare, please take a look at my Etsy shop! I have so many new styles! I’ve been getting into copper, besides it’s beauty, it is a healing metal, especially for arthritis and rheumatism. I handmade the medallion in one of my favorite flowers, a lotus flower! You can read all about the meaning of the lotus in my Etsy shop.

Enlightenment Medallion

Until Later….Love and Peace….Linda

it’s a beautiful morning

01 A Beautiful Morning

So, here it is a Saturday and I’m doing what I love best…let the moment guide me to happiness! Yes, of course I have plans, rather HAD plans for this wonderful day! But, my favorite thing on my day off is a little bit of this, a little bit of that! The day usually doesn’t progress quite like my initial plans as they were forming in my mind as I lay still trying to open my sleepy eyes! Somehow, the garden always deviates me a bit from the master plan (although “the plan” is always open to revision and rewriting!) (Another pretty song to enjoy 12 Good Morning Starshine

So Jaden is here with us for the weekend! This is always a welcome addition to the weekend agenda! The adventures began last night….first Culvers for dinner followed by ice cream! (they have nothing that I would consider anywhere near the caloric intake I would have liked to have for dinner….I’m sure the veggie burger and cheese fries were beyond my daily limit of calories!) But, after all it was fun Friday, right? So somehow, a trip to Crystal Lake for an ink cartridge, somehow resulted in Culvers, ice cream, an iPod cover and a new xBox game….and they didn’t even have the ink cartridge! I guess that’s what happens when your grandson is with you….the evening gets revised and rewritten!  But he is so worth it! :o)

My little buddy keeps checking out the blog, waiting to see what I might put in my blog about him! Gosh, G’Ma can’t get away with anything, however, he’s gone now so I can put in a pic from a bit ago! tee hee hee!

So, the day is a simple one here for all of us!  I started out walking around gazing at the bushes and flowers beginning to pop open in the yard…which is why tomorrow will be a trip to the nursery for some new blooms to purchase! And, all of us here are occupying ourselves in our own bit of happiness. Jaden is playing xBox, Savannah is sleeping, I’m doing a bit of this and that, and PaPa is getting the garage cleaned.

But, I couldn’t let the day pass without sharing a few more magnolia blooms pics! It’s rare here in Illinois when these early blooming trees don’t get ruined from the irregular spring temperatures. Usually as these blooms are forming, we get some sort of cold weather or frost and the petals often get the edges browned or the petals start to fall after just a couple of days! But this year, spring has sprung early and the yard is filled with the beginnings of beautiful spring blooms! I see hostas popping us, Lilac buds forming, my Quince bushes coral buds forming, the Columbine’s beautiful leaves have emerged from the soil, and, well, many more beauties just waiting for a bit more warmth and sunshine!

So, I’ll leave you with a pretty flower and a pretty song and wish for a great weekend! Enjoy the song!

01 Just the Way You Are

Now, onto my jewelry making! :o)

Love and Peace….LindaGeez

Daydreamer

03 Daydream Believer

The Monkees

What kind of girl would I be if I didn’t honor Davy Jones! A little bit of my yesteryears creeps in my memory. Of course Suze and me loved The Monkees! We sang their songs and decorated our room with their pictures. AND, as any little sister would do (sorry Suze, I always mention that she is older than me), I would love what Suze loved! So, when she said  “Let’s tape Micky Dolenz pic up on our bedroom door”…who was little me to disagree!  Hahaha! Actually, I don’t remember who I thought was “cuter” him or Davy, I just knew I loved all of them too! So, I thought I would share a favorite song of ours that we enjoyed!  And a daydreamer I guess I will always be. Whether it was yesterday, or even today, I still admit, I am a daydreamer!

So, speaking of daydreaming, this blog will be all about things I dream about! I think dreams are healthy. Dreams help us escape from the day to day dreariness that we all must endure! And, although I don’t have enough pages for all the dreams that I have, I will write about one dream that none of us can change in any way!  I dream about TIME! Yes TIME! There is nothing we could do about the time we have….we can’t add more time to our day, add more time to our lives, take any bad times away, or even change the times we have made a mistake or two! No time tunnel here, although that would sure be fun! Enjoy this oldie 2-12 The Time Has Come Today Am I aging myself? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time today I heard that! Does this sound familiar all the “M’s” in the office!

 

Yellowstone

14 Born To Be Wild And, another thing spring weather tends to do to me, is make me dream of a road trip! The destination is not as important and the ride, the adventure, the escape from reality! It’s hard to pick a favorite vacation, we have had so many lovely ones….but I do have a couple of favorites! I LOVED traveling to Yellowstone National Park! AND, I also loved our first real motorcycle adventure…traveling on Blue Ridge Parkway, through the Great Smoky Mountains. Nothing ever compared to the freedom I felt on that vacation! Sony Discman in pocket (pre iPod days), trailer in the back, holding on to the big guy without a care in the world! Besides the sites and the carefree days we had, it was great because I didn’t have to even look at the map for him….I’m not a map person, in fact I think I hate it! Total freedom! Oh, forgive me, I was just daydreaming for a moment there!
