Just wrong

I started a new colouring page and ruined it about half way in.
Not all colours look good together.

I am unsure how to save this page and am utterly unmotivated to complete it.

See what I mean?
That bright yellow green is screaming. It's SO wrong.

There still are a handful of leaves to be coloured and I just don't know.

It's only a colouring book?!
Chill out?!
In the grand scheme of things, this doesn't matter?!


Carry on.
Forget I mentioned it.


Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Mindless, unimportant, Keep-Your-Hands-Busy-While-You're-Chatting-With-The-Almighty projects.

2. Amazing weather. Just spectacular. I have enjoyed it from inside my office all day, and from inside the house this evening. It's laundry day and I can't skip. But tomorrow? Boy howdie. Straight from work to someplace with fresh air.

3. Roasted vegetables. Who knew? Haha.

4. THIS story... 'Driving Miss Norma"... follow along on Facebook:
Norma, a 90-year-old woman from Michigan, was diagnosed with uterine cancer just two days after her husband passed away. Doctors presented her with some options: undergo surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. Her answer?
“I’m 90 years old, I’m hitting the road.”
Six months later, Norma is enjoying an adventure of a lifetime with her son and daughter-in-law on an epic road trip across the United States. So far, their adventures have led them to a wide range of travel destinations, including Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Rocky Mountains, and Disney World. And get this—Norma’s favorite activity was going on a hot air balloon ride over central Florida!
Norma’s story has inspired many others to live life to its fullest, one adventure at a time. 

5. THIS article on marriage and happiness:
"If you’re getting married with your own happiness as your main goal, you will be disappointed in a severe way.
Marriage is not about your happiness, it’s not even about you. It’s about love—which is something we choose to give time and time again. It’s about sacrifice, serving, giving, forgiving—and then doing it all over again."
6. And I'm thankful for the German language. SO many good words that we need to incorporate into our day to day English conversations. Their literal meanings are spot on...

I mean, really? How perfect is THIS:


I may be guilty of this:

Shalom, friends.
