Beautiful Saturday Blessings to Remember! May 10, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #562)

Lovely and beautiful Saturday thus far of:Botanical-Green-Matelasse-Coverlet-bedding-set-Jun3012hobbylobby_May1014GratianaLovelace--sized

1) slept in til 6:45am (normally, I’m up at 5:30am, Ha!); we have this soothing botanical green matelasse coverlet (pictured right from Bed, Bath, and Beyond) with eggplant purple bed sheets (for zip); 98 on my blood sugar (snap!), showered, then picked up glazed donuts and coffee on the way to …

2) 9 holes of golf with my hubby at the par 3 course–I hit the ball straight, my best drive GolfBallandGreenGrassMay1014MSOfcClipArt-sizedwas 125 yards, need to work on my putting; great start to the golf season!

3) however, my face is a bit sun burnt (despite using sunscreen), so I need to pick up a higher SPF sunblock, and a visor/hat; not willing to spend $16 on a sun visor (highway robbery, Ha!) at the sporting goods store on the way home, but I bought more tall golf tees and a new golfing glove;

4) Second shower after golfing–long hair all fluffy and wavy despite second round of conditioner today (no tangles, though, snap!); our Beagle doggie Heidi (left) likes my hair.  Maybe she thinks I’m an Afghan hound (middle)? Ha!; Our mutt hound Max’s portrait is more elusive (right);

5) pondering lunch options (reading/writing while noshing), writing at some point, chatting with my online friends throughout the day; then buying and planting more deck railing flower boxes before buying takeout Chinese for dinner, etc.; here are the backyard deck flora that we have so far (including our nice black cherry tree in the background):

There will be chores interspersed throughout the day, of course–hubby mowed the grass (kisses!), laundry, dishes, etc.   But it is a beautiful sunlit cool and breezy day. And I just wanted to be sure to remember it–and to count my blessings.

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Yes, Grati. A day to count our blessings. My friend had knee replacement surgery and all is well. I had the inspector for the buyers of my house here yesterday, and so far so good! Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I still have my mom!! Blessed! Love your blog, and happy you are grateful for RA, as I am. :D


    • Hi Marie Astra! Thanks for kind note! Glad to hear about your friend and your house sale inspection–both are nerve wracking. Happy Mother’s Day to you and your Mom. Blessings to you both! Blessings to RA and his Mum! Love & Hugs! Grati ;->
