You Are My Sunshine

by Johnny Cash

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
I’ll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me and love another
You’ll regret it all some day
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you’ve left me and love another
You have shattered all of my dreamsYou are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine awayIn all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
When I awake my poor heart pains
So when you come back and make me happy
I’ll forgive you dear, I’ll take all the blameYou are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine awaySource:Β LyricFind

bottoms up!

my thoughts for today
not all the photos are available anywhere
but I’m working on it!
if available, it is noted where

Do you know how hard it is to work, from end to beginning? Well, that’s what I’ve been doing since yesterday…not so bad as long as you know what you’re doing!!

I know you’ve noticed I haven’t been doing my normal posts…Fun With Words, American Legends…this is part of the reason. I’ve also been working on my shop and trouble shooting. I think I have everything worked out, as I got 2 orders today! YAY!!! πŸ™‚ Just waiting for payment to go through, then they should receive their download.

I’ve been wanting to do a post about my shop, as I’m sure you’re aware…but, things aren’t going as planned…and I don’t want to seem as all I’m doing is complaining. So, you won’t see too much of this. Promise!

available at Picfair

I can’t even add the descriptions, photo details, like I normally do! And editing? Forget it!
But…this too shall pass! And it will, I know it will.
Enough dwelling, time to move on…

Maybe, just maybe, I need to take a step back…

let things go….
work out the way they should…
maybe, just maybe…

tree reflections in black and white

So, yeah…working in reverse today… and until further notice, until I get this figured out!

upside down praying mantis

I’ve had to delete, restart, delete, preview…maybe it has something to do with changing my plan but it shouldn’t. I guess I’ll have to get in touch with wordpress to see what’s going on. I can’t continue to work like this!

Hope you have a great day!
take care, stay safe, much love

sense of wonder

“I am no bird
and no net ensnares me
I am a free human being
with an independent will.”
~ Charlotte Bronte

I have no idea what’s going on here, but this isn’t right. I can’t scroll, can’t see below what’s on the screen… so I’m not going to be able to do my normal post. Is anyone else having trouble? I’m kinda building this backwards.

let me comb your hair

Yes that’s a praying mantis, in my hair! Usually, when I photograph praying mantis’, they just stare at me or the camera and then try and get away. Not this one!! He – or she – jumped on my camera, then proceeded to climb up my arm and into my hair, on top of my head, before I managed to get my fingers on it and put it in the garden.
I usually don’t mess with praying mantis’, besides photographing them. But this one was small enough it didn’t bother me.

It’s just a right here, right now kinda thing…later, when I go to post something, everything will be okay. I’ve had this problem before, so I’ll just wait it out. Hopefully…

I really wanted to do something different…oh well, it is what it is.

I do have new photos in my shop, and at Pixels…if you want to take a look….

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown #free #fall #printable
Each year the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

The pic below is available at Pinterest, even though it says it’s copyrighted…it is not.

The Wanderer

Yeah, cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around, around

Cause I’m a wanderer
I’m a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around
