Blog Your Blessings and Today's Flowers

"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
Cherokee Indian Proverb

Really Good Things

1. I've enjoyed applying the new 'Digital Media' skills I'm learning in my evening Adult School classes ... most recently creating original templates for my collages as I did for my T-13 (featuring Molly and Ms. Kitty) at Happily Retired Gal, my Monochrome Maniac & Haiku Friday post at Small Reflections ... and again for Shadow Shots and Today's Flowers.

2. Tennis at the French Open this year has been exciting and unpredictable. I'm happy Svetlana Kuznetsova won the Women's Championship against Dinara Safina and am looking forward to the Men's Championship Match between Roger Federer and Robin Soderling tomorrow morning.

I published May's Sidebar Gratitude List from Small Reflections at Happily Retired Gal and started a new list for June. I'm looking forward to Monday's Retired Gal's Luncheon to see what everyone's been up to the past few weeks.

Thought for Today

True to Christian Anderson's words that "living is not just enough but has to have freedom and a little flower." How you inspired my spirit today! Thanks for visiting my skywatch blog.

I want you to know how much I enjoy your reflective thoughts to awaken mind.

Nice collages! Your roses are beautiful! I have recently taken soem photos of the roses in our rose garden and even more that I don't have up yet. This is a nice time of year for flower photos!

I wanted to drop by and let everyone know my post today is my last for BYB Sunday. I will keep counting my blessings but not online. I have enjoyed your posts and will bookmark it to drop by on occasion still.
