About Normal...

I used to tell my husband when we would be traveling to far away distances that the ability of traveling so fast could cause the soul to have some type of delays. Some things to me are not "normal". For example: Huge boats the size of skyscrapers floating in the ocean, traveling so fast in any type of craft, the ingredients of a Chicken McNugget to name a few.

So my previous "theory" will serve as an excuse as to the reasons why I have perhaps been a bit bizarre and absent minded. The reason? Is that my soul has just arrived the Florida and Georgia state line. I will blame it on the fact that I traveled so fast up and down I 95 from Savannah to Miami Beach... that my soul stopped for some free orange juice samples somewhere along I 95. Filled with excuses we repainted the sun room. I am now very happy with it.

It is a happy place but yet warm and I have vowed to stay away from Winter colors.

The color's name? Pumpkin Patch. Autumn enough?!?

Something else that isn't "normal" to me would be the recycling of certain things. For example: Old boyfriends and Ex husbands, diapers and jobs. Yesterday I was asked back to a job that I had previously quit due to the high levels of stress. For 24 hours I pondered whether I should return to post like an obedient soldier. Times are tough and many are looking for work but one thing I now know is thyself... So for now I leave and I am quoting the great poet Brandon Flowers from The Killers which once stated... I got soul but I am not a soldier.

  1. Glad you found a color that makes you happy :)

  2. I just want to walk over with a cantaloupe and some port and sit and catch up. LOVE the color. Perfect for all four season. And love this smile xx

  3. I got soul but I am not a soldier!

    Amen to that!

  4. I like that as well: I got soul but I am not a soldier.
    Interesting writing style, beautiful photos... Glad your soul caught up.

  5. Don't return to the job. It won't be any better this time around. I've tried it before, and in fact it was worse the second time. And the pictures are wonderful.
