strong yet delicate. the perfect combination.


My favourite flower. 

The Peony.  A white one, specifically.  Full and heavy with moisture, delicate yet strong, fragrant without insult, commanding your attention without demanding it.  Perfect in it’s tight robust bud before bloom, and soft and silky to the touch after bloom… perfection ….

*Sigh* It is a beautiful day today.  I am feeling like myself.  The real Kelly today.  Things are not perfect in my world – who has that anyways?  But I am ok.  I have things to look forward to.

Dinner tonite:  I am making broiled maui ribs, sticky white rice, broccoli and a fresh fruit salad with a dollup of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream on top!  Beat that!

I am feeling thankful for the love of a best friend, my mom, my family, old friends, new friends and my internet blogging friends.  Each and every one of you have played a role in how I feel today.

    Yum! Is it bad if I have fruit salad and ice cream for breakfast? 😉

    Your thoughts are remindful and gladdening, I left smiling for you (and with you). 🙂

    Thank you so much for all the kind words! Finding you had gone back and found the one that terrified me and said something so nice made my night!

    Autumn Storm: If you cannot have a McGriddle for breakfast then I RECOMMEND fruit and ice cream for breakfast or just ice cream!!

    Alan: You are most welcome. Every word meant.

    B: Are you addicted to those things yet? It only takes one or two!

    Cheek: Hello there Mr. Man. You are most welcome.

    Oh, lovely. My favourite as well!! I love the brilliant pink ones. If I could be a flower, I’d be a peony.

    They’re big, bold, brilliant and unapologetic for being so. The way we should all live our lives!!
