Lots of lovely items of blue ....
for friends so true.
I met friends at PF Chang for lunch today. I've never heard of the chain but apparently it is popular in parts of the States. The food and atmosphere were all good.
I also had not heard much before about Cath Kidston until I started blogging and since there happened to be a store in the mall, I decided to check it out.
They were having a sale, so I bought a few things -- a straw purse that I can put my crochet projects in so that they stay nice and neat and out of the way of kids and cat.
Kitchen towels and soap.
A friend leaving Kuwait left me some plain Ikea frames that have just been collecting dust. I finally took one of them and jazzed it up. I printed music paper (By The Crystal Sea) from The Graphics Fairy and then cut out some pictures of me and Zack by the beach. I used the scrap pieces from the photos that were all in varying shades of blue and decoupaged around the frame to give it a tile-like appearance.
On a sad note of blue, I found out today that a friend's son came from the States a few days before Christmas and the day after he arrived, he was struck down by a driver who was talking on her mobile. He was 19 and the driver is 20. The young man (who is a twin) died 2 days before Christmas and the driver is now in the hospital as she is unable to deal with the trauma of the tragedy. There is a law in Kuwait that no one can talk on the mobile while driving but unfortunately it is not enforced properly. I for one do not understand what is so important that one cannot wait to get to a stopping point to talk with someone. There was a time when phonebooths were found on the side of the road; but in this day age, folks seem to think that their car is a phonebooth. I do hope that this will be a lesson learned by anyone who hears of this story. I pray for peace and understanding for the families. Wishing each and every one of you a most wonderful and beautiful day! Stay safe! Peace & blessings, Tammy
