Peonies

Don't you adore the fragrance of Peonies???? I have four different colors in my gardens and I cut one of each for my house.






My Daddy used to hate these because his parents passed away a couple of months apart in the spring and peonies filled the whole landscape where they were buried.

Hope you all are enjoying all the beautiful colors in your world.

Signature

What does a persons signature reveal about them?

There are some signatures that are so recognizable wouldn't you say?



You can play one of those games that evaluate your signature, don't know how much truth it evokes.


I was curious so I took a test and it  says that I'm confident and self-assured. That I am charismatic and outgoing. It's large and legible that means I want to be noticed and leave an unforgettable impression. That I'm comfortable showing my feelings and emotions and place a high value on personal relationships!!

Here's mine



My great grandfather was in the Union Army in the Civil War and was shot in the left shoulder. He applied for disability and his pension was increased from $4.00 a month to $6.00 per month. Here is a copy of one of the pages of his file that I own. I have about 200 pages of hand written information on him.


Look at the beautiful embellishment on some of the letters and can you imagine writing a file this big for every soldier in hand?

Since we pay so much of our expenses on-line now we don't get to practice our cursive as much but I do believe it is a beautiful art.

Blue

What gives you the most happiness?  To me it is family.

A picture of my granddaughters and I on Mothers Day.  They bought me a new journal for keeping sermon notes and a lovely pen.  I haven't been able to use it yet, I'm recuperating from gall-bladder surgery on Thursday. Hopefully I will make it to next Sunday services.

Also a darling thermal cup that says Nana.

Rose

My r word for this week is rose.  All the moms at church were given a rose on Sunday for Mothers Day. There were several colors but I received an orange one.

Orange roses stand for enthusiasm and desire. The orange rose is RADIANT to me, wouldn't a huge bush covered with these be RAPTUROUS.

Quik Trip

Well Q is not easy but I'm going with one of my favorite stops.


I don't know if QuikTrips are in your area of the world but here in the Midwest it is a big chain.

They have the most helpful polite employees--always lookin out for the customer.  If they don't have your favorite drink in stock you get free coupons for the next time and the current one is on them.

My new crave is Black Tea with Mango!!

The have a fantastic app for the phone where they give away free drinks and pretzels frequently!

Plus the gasoline is always a good price.

New artwork

I've had my eye out for a long time for a picture by Tom duBois who is an inspirational artist.

On an auction site last week I purchased "The Commission" by him.

It is a giclee on canvas and is 17' x 34" and is signed and numbered.

Lots of gorgeous blue in the painting!





I'm so happy with it and it takes a place at the top of the entry stairs.

Hope you all are starting out BLUE MONDAY on a good note!! Thank you Jeannie for doing such a splendid job.

Birthday

Let's get the blue's rolling this week.  I want to share some cute pictures from my granddaughters 12th birthday.

We really love all sitting on the floor and watching the gifts being opened. My great niece is always taking a vital role in handing out the gifts and gathering up the wrappings. Her and grand are besties!!!!


My youngest sister and my BIL being silly in the big chair--think it needs to be a little bigger.

I LOVE that they live in the same city along with their children and my 7 grand nephews and nieces.

Hope your are starting your week in grand fashion!!!!
