I love that old jug..many many many years ago..when I worked..we would do an annual Christmas bazaar for the firemen's fund..
it started small..just our little office w/ an incredibly talented..nice..smart..manager..she hired me when I was 28 and so green..I would never have survived in real estate had it not been for her.
I have stories up my sleeve:)
She would knit so many sweaters..and other things..some baked, some made quilts and some painted..
One of the things I bought was this painted jug..Barbara Fullerton painted it..Great job:)
She is long gone..but everytime I see this jug..I see her:)
She was devoted to the bazaar.
So..yeah..yellows abound right now..actually even for a couple of weeks now..
bright happy sunshiney yellows.
It struck me this week when I had to get something from somewhere because it had been requested of me..specifically requested..so I went to get it..politely..and was told I did not need it..that it had been sent..
so what do I do? Arrive w/out it when it was REQUESTED..and risk being turned away after a 6 month wait?
So I politely asked again..and got it..
How can something turn into that?
I just don't get it:)
Peace and love..lol.
Then..leaving..I walked out a door that is very hard to push open..someone was coming in and I do what I always do..I held the door open..
she walked right in..kept looking at her PHONE.
Please get you faces off your phones..and live a little.
I said: "Bienvenue".You're welcome.
I would not have said that had I not been verklempt..ed? upstairs.
Be KIND..be appreciative..be grateful.You don't have to radiate happy..we all have something that dulls the happy..but...
There I said it.
Jacques said that might teach you to stop being nice to strangers.
( he did laugh when I read this to him..out loud..we are NIGHT and DAY..:)
Are you kidding me?
That will teach me to continue .
By the way..if you need something sweet this w/e..
