Help The Left Over Halloween Candy is Calling ME!

Oh well it's too late I'm eating it! Thank goodness there isn't too much left in the bowl. Does anyone else have a problem with candy? I'm to lose weight before going back to the heart doc in February ...I'll start tomorrow!  Only been saying that for 40+ years.

PINK Dolphin on PINK Saturday!

Yes it is a PINK Dolphin very hard to believe!  I received an email with these photos and following story.

Think pink .... you're not seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses: This albino dolphin is pink.

Unique ... the bottlenose - first spotted in Lake Calcasieu , an inland saltwater estuary in Louisiana , by boat captain Erik Rue, 42, in 2007 - has surfaced again.

Rare sight ... "Pinky" is believed to be the only pink dolphin in the world, and has "reddish" eyes. It is usually spotted with its dark grey mother.

Healthy glow ... "The dolphin appears to be healthy and normal other than its coloration, which is quite beautiful and stunningly pink," said Mr Rue, who estimates he has spotted Pinky more than 40 times.

I would really love to see this PINK Dolphin! 

Bev over at How Sweet the Sound has the list of all the participants in todays PINK Saturday.
Happy Mothers Day to everyone!

Warm wishes,

LOOK What I Won!

I never considered myself a lucky person but since I've started blogging my luck has changed!  I've been blessed with winning many giveaways but this last one is really specially.  A handmade Sterling Silver and Rhodolite Garnet Bracelet arrived this week in the mail and it is beautiful!  Since it was a giveaway on PINK Saturday I thought sharing today would be perfect.

If you have not visited Nancy at her blog Gracie Jewellery you should do so today!  Her blog is delightful and she makes the most beautiful jewelry much like the above bracelet that I won!  Hope everyone is having a sunny PINK Saturday.

"I is for Irish"

Yes I'm Irish but my family never really celebrated St Patrick's Day while I was growing up.  Today I don't celebrate the way some of my Irish friends do but I do honor my heritage.  Hopefully some day I'll get visit Ireland.  I find Irish music very entertaining and love the song When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.

The lyrics to When Irish Eyes Are Smiling were written by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr. and set to the music of Enerst Ball for Olcott's production of The Isle O' Dreams. The music was published in 1912.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling
There's a tear in your eye,
And I'm wondering why,
For it never should be there at all.
With such pow'r in your smile,
Sure a stone you'd beguile,
So there's never a teardrop should fall.
When your sweet lilting laughter's
Like some fairy song,
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be;
You should laugh all the while
And all other times smile,
And now, smile a smile for me.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

The letter for the day is "I" over at Alphabe-Thursday you should be sure and visit Jenny's blog to see what everyone is posting about.

Where Have I Been?

Yes where have I been?  Good questions!  Every day seems to be joined to the next with not a thing exciting happening.  I keep thinking there has to be something useful I could be doing..instead of reading, hopping around on the internet, watching TV..well you get the picture.  There is not one little bit of motivation in this body and soul of mine!

So I've decided not to beat myself up about being lazy and just go with the flow...spring is coming! Here are some wonderful photos found on google.

Me A Queen?

In the mail this week came this pretty envelope addressed to Queen Esther! I love getting mail and this is so special!  It came all the way from Everett Washington that must be about 2000 miles from Jacqueline.  Now I wasn't really sure who Jacqueline was but I decided right then she must be a friend to take the time to send real mail and not just email!

I opened the envelope and inside was this sweet card

and hand written message
saying I was a Queen in Training
now I remember Once Upon a Fairyland

Also included this cute tag

and the only Valentine I received this year!!

  Thank you, thank you, thank you Jacqueline ...
you sure made me smile all week!

When do I start my Queen training??

"D" is for Dirt & a Vintage Thingie

It's Alphabe-Thursday over at Jenny's blog  and todays letter is "D".  I looked all through my photos and could have picked dog, donut, dumb, daughter..just about any "D" word
 but I found this photo and knew it had to be dirt!!

Oh my this is my sweet husband and it looks like he got mixed up in a coal bin!
Isn't he good looking! He would not be too happy if he knew I put this on my blog!

I think this would work for Vintage Thingie Thursday at Suzanne's - Colorado Lady he is rather old vintage!

Warm hugs,

Bing Crosby "Snow" from White Christmas

Yes this is the song that jumped in my mind when I shot these photos.


It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow


I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow


I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow


Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow
Where it's snowing
All winter through
That's where I want to be
Snowball throwing
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh
Those glist'ning houses that seem to be built of snow


Oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow
What is Christmas with no snow
No white Christmas with no snow


I'll soon be there with snow
I'll wash my hair with snow
And with a spade of snow
I'll build a man that's made of snow

I'd love to stay up with you
but I recommend a little shuteye

Go to sleep
And dream

Of snow

Not a thing we can do about all the SNOW but enjoy it!!
Warm hugs to everyone,
