But I Won't

by Deanna

Hmm, my time is here to write an enlightening post about…..what???
 
I could write about that it may cost me an extra $650 a month for my sweeties care….but I won’t.

I could write about the pipe that burst in my basement and water is running down the walls….but I won’t.

I could write about the fact that I can’t zip up any of my summer capris…but I won’t.

I could write about my property taxes rising again….but I won’t.

I could write about the big mistake I made on my income tax return last year.....but I won't. 

I could write about one more government misuse of authority with the Internal Revenue Service using their power to threaten conservative and tea party groups…but I won’t.

I could write about Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a double mastectomy and later her ovaries removed…but I won’t.

Instead I am just going to show you some pretty pictures and take slow, deep breaths....







Somehow seeing pretty pictures removes all those negative and unhappy thoughts....I hope I helped you do that today.

I think capris get together during the winter months and shrink themselves as some kind of vengeance. For what? Don't like my fabric softener? I wish I was there because I'd have a serious (the pee your pants kind) good day where we'd photo shoot and buy one pair of capris that are beautiful and fit! Love to you, Deanna, and gratitude for your always positive spin on things. We shall not let evil capris get us no. No, we shall not.

I also think shorts and swimsuits get together with those same capris and then they all launch their evil little empire together. But that's just me. I hope that things turn around for you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos!

I agree! Why spend time on all the negative things! (although $650/month for your hubby care is cheap! My MIL's care was $5000/month!)
lovely flowers!

I can't even turn on my TV anymore...to much negative and if the world decides to end, I'll know that. Anything else, if it's not going to enrich my day, can kiss my ar$$! ;) Your photos are beautiful as always, that last one . . . swoon!

PS - Pam, I always look forward to your comments and a chuckle! xo

Oh, let's not dwell on the clothing conspiracy! Much better to focus on the beauty and you have certainly done that. I'm stressing this morning about some whacky stuff that got downloaded to my computer last night that is adding links into everything and I don't know how to get rid of them! Ahhh, I think I'll go out with my camera and forget about it all. Thanks, Deanna, for encouraging us to not sweat the small (and sometimes big) stuff. Lots of good stuff to "focus" on!

Ahhh, yes! Beautiful pictures ... just what the doctor ordered for me today! Thank you, Deanna! Focus on the beauty and don't sweat the small stuff. Maybe that should be the FOL motto.

Yes your photos are just gorgeous, and you know that anyone who is able to create this sort of beauty, is definitely able to provide for all of our needs. Good choice to look at the beauty in life!

Deanna, your posts are always enjoyable to read whether they're sprinkled with the positive or the negative. You just have a way of making everything seem like it's going to be alright. My personal opinion on capris is that they suffer from Napoleon complex. ;)
