Blah, blah, blah

Filed under: Uncategorized — May-May Golly @ 12:43 pm

I currently have a case of the “blahs”. And I’m a bit disappointed in myself  as well. Due to sickness and what have you, I fell behind on my 365 project and thus have totally abandoned it. Which I hate. It’s hard when one feels totally uninspired. 😦

I hate the “blahs”. I just hate them.

This past Thursday found me heading to a place I find comfort, friendship, and solace… My home away from home. Lovely Colette’s home.

Complete with a magical garden in which to soothe one’s soul….

We gathered at this magical place to bid this little man farewell. His time with us had finally come to an end, after a long and full life. We sent Mr. Cocoa Bean back to the stars with lots of hugs and pets and love. Lots of love. And tears. Lots of tears.

Love one another and you will be happy.

It’s as simple and as difficult as that.
