color coordinating



Yesterday . . .
I called in sick with a tummy bug.
I watered my flowers . ..
and put out some lunch which suddenly did not look at all appetizing . .
and I took to the couch.

It was handy that a short novel had been tucked into the plastic bag of a Canadian Magazine.

Part way through the read ..
in a moment of clarity. .
I noticed how color coordinated my ensemble was.
I took a picture . ..
because you are  never that far from my mind either.

Our boys were over in the afternoon once their day job were complete . .
finishing off our Christmas gift on the hottest day of the year so far.
I called out for them to take pictures .. .
but alas. .
only the finished product will be shown another day.

All for now . .

  5. Lovella, I do hope the bug has left and you are feeling better very soon.

    You are so right about the perfect color coordination!

    Oh boy, is that a new Joanna Trollope novel? I like her work.

    Had to check the cover of my book to see if I match as well as you... nope I don't :) But I'm enjoying it just the same.

  7. I'm reading a book with a black and orange cover - should have saved it for October when I might be wearing something to match!

  8. Your mind must have been wondering from the pages of the book, that you discovered the color coordination thing. I just had to smile when I read that. Who but you would think of that when sick with the stomach flu? I try only to read books that coordinate with my outfits:) Can't wait to see the Christmas gift.
