Monday Morning Flowers, Your Quote of the Week, Announcement of the Winners of the JABs AND a Cute Puppy Picture! Can You Handle the Excitement?

OK! OK! Stop jumping up and down.

You'll only make yourselves sick.

We've talked about this before.

Pace Yourselves.

First your flowers for the week:

Pretty in Pink!

Hope You Don't Mind Sharing This One With A Friend.

Close Up and Personal? Oh Yeah.

And now, what you've all been waiting for!

Chosen via Random Number Generator
(my new favorite toy--hours of fun!)

The winners of the JABs are:


You lucky three e-mail me with your addresses, your bank account numbers, your mothers' maiden names and your Visa/Mastercard numbers and I'll send that bell right out to you!


Happy Flag Day!


Happy Birthday
to our friend Hana who turns 19 today
and who just adopted this sweet puppy from the pound.


One person's definition of success
is another's first step.
Only you can rate your accomplishments,
and find peace within yourself.


(Good advice--whether you are housebroken or not!)

Hope you all have good weeks!

Betty Adores You All!

Do you take all these flower pictures yourself? You must have a fabulous garden. The second picture with the butterfly is so cool.

Writing Without Periods! said...

Cute puppy. Love the name. Happy for the winners!!!
Happy Monday.

Pat said...

My husband will be sooo happy to know that I didn't win the bell, so he won't have to wait on my hand and foot every time he hears "ringy-ding-ding". *I say with tongue in cheek*

Congrats to the winners. Again, this proves what a LOSER I am.

Beautiful photos of flowers. What are those pretty pink ones called?

That puppy is just adorable!

Arlee Bird said...

Nice flower pictures. My pictures never turn out that good. And my flowers always shrivel up and die and they never look as good as yours. Maybe I should start taking weed pictures.

Tossing It Out

Cooper is very cute.

Thanks for the peace that your beauty brings.

Ducky said...

I'm pretty sure I'm housebroken...except maybe when I get to laughing to hard. I blame that on the baby though.

Fantastic quote! And of course I'm a sucker for great photographic moments so I loved all the shots!
