My Moment of Zen!

Good Friday Morning My Friends,

Wow, I awoke to a slight chill in the air....had to put the big bathrobe on to sit outside and drink my Fall really in the air? But, while sitting outside I was just gazing at our community flower garden that myself and the other ladies in my building take care of....and much to my surprise, there was a beautiful Spider Lilly that had bloomed! None of us even knew there was a Spider Lilly planted there. I just sat and I was amazed, not just by the beauty of the flower, but, that I had forgotten after the past two weeks of "emotional BS" that I have been "stop and smell the roses"....I had forgotten to "just stop and enjoy the beauty around me".

Some of you know that I had NOT my Heart broken,but, more so, my PRIDE...after realizing that I had been in an "intense friendship"for over two months with someone that had not been truthful with his intentions...(and if any of his friends…

Happy First Day of Fall

Wow, I can't believe that September 22 has arrived! Yes, it is finally here and you know what that means...right? Well, Silly. it is the first day of Fall!! That's right.....Falling leaves......pumpkins at your local Farmer's Markets and grocery stores......sitting outside in the evening with a cool breeze wafting through your hair....and yes, my fav.....stocking up on Halloween Candy!
Just yesterday, while coming out of Kroger....the big pile of pumpkins just seemed to be staring at me....
Kinda silly...right? But, anyway...Happy First Day of Fall......can't wait to see all the exciting projects I know that will be coming out daily!

NEW! More Exclusive SQUARED totes by Three Dawg Lady!

Wow, it has been an "topsy-turvy" week for me after realizing that the man I was building a relationship with wanted to "build one" with another neighbor.....but, I handled it fine....realizing that it just wasn't to be.....C'est la vie!

So,I pored myself into finishing two more purse/totes in my SQUARED live.....that is what they are....simple, squared totes than can used as a bag....whatever....let, me see what you think...

Just love these 2 myself,,,,hope you enjoyed them....


Being Single and Dating in Your 50's....Oh, the Pitfalls!

When I became single in March of 2006, after ending a 10 year relationship with the man I thought was my "soul mate", dating again was the last thing on my mind! Those 10 years had not been all bad, but a major portion of them had been horrible as I watched a person I loved go through the "throes of drug addiction", and if anyone has experienced a loved one go through addiction, well, then you know how it can also eat away at the spirit and soul of the sober partner.

So, I have spent the last 7 years getting to know who Deborah(me) is.....and let me tell you something right here....boy, did I have a lot of learning to do. I had lived for so long all consumed trying to do what ever it took to "help him" that I had forgotten how to help myself! Do you remember the movie with Julia Roberts...The Runaway Bride.....where towards the end of the movie she has a whole counter of eggs:

And, she is tasting all the different ways to make eggs...JUST to find out what i…
