New ...

I have had such a day ... I started with good intentions ... I put yummy ingredients in the crock pot, set it on low and walked away, thinking that it was a good day to make some fab chilli ... at about 2:00 this afternoon, I was wondering why i didn't smell the chilli goodness ... turns out i did everything right but plug the crock pot in.   And then it was one thing after another ... each little mistake making me angrier and angrier ... having to drive all the way to the grocery store for one green pepper was almost the proverbial straw ... but hey ...I'm no camel ...

As I was driving home I had a vivid image of myself as an old crotchety man ...  mumbling and muttering because my tea was too cold and the fire wasn't warm enough ... looking out the windows for playing children to yell at ... cats to scare away from the garden ... the neighbours to complain about ... but I'm no old man either ...

When i finally did get home I did take a quick little walk into my little garden ...



I have been wondering if my hellabore was going to make it through the winter ... it has gone all spotchety and limp



and just when I was about to let this be yet another spoiler to my day, I bent over,  took a closer look, and saw this ...



yes, a clump flowers ... New growth coming from the same old earth ... it was then that I realized that it is a New year ... New week, day, hour, minute .... and each one of these increments was a chance to do something right, choose a different way of dealing with the issues, choosing to smile and breathe deep, choosing to celebrate the New that is all around ... and say good by to that old man ...




This post was brought to you by the letter N and the fab Jenny Matlock and her totally fun Alphabe-Thursday meme ... stop by for some good reading!

Oh geez, where are my manners ... little Miss Mona Lisa Mae has a New friend ... stay tuned for more from this little Mystery Monkey!




Peace, Love &Paper
~Jo

I had a good laugh reading your post, invisioning an crotchety old man taking it out on children and small dogs! LOL . Thanks I needed that.
I too have a hellaore and Love the flowers, now I need to go check out mine tomorrow and see if it survived our winter!
Hugs Lynn

gabe said...

what a great post! We all need those reminders that while life can be annoying. . .there are always flowers growing somewhere, you just have to know where to look!

Judie said...

Jo, I am glad you found those tender little shoots popping up. It's like finding hope again. It is a wonderful reminder to all of us.
xoxo,
J.

magsmcc said...

Hi Jo- thanks for visiting fraise- do come and play with on Willows! It'll cheer you up after crock pot and plant obstacles! Will wait to hear from you before signing you on to roll!!

laterg8r said...

glad you got rid of the grump :D

mrs. c said...

As I always think and say, everything happens for a reason! So glad you saw the blooms! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

Annesphamily said...

Seeing those new blooms reminds me that Spring will eventually return! Love stopping by and Mona Lisa is always here to make me smile! HAppy weekend! Anne

Izzy said...

glad that things turned around for you and you shook off the old crotchety man syndrome. staying tuned for more on the mystery monkey ;)

Pondside said...

That's it - I have to go out and look at my hellebores to see if there's anything going on. After our huge snowfall I worried about them, but with the rain they stood straight back up - amazing!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Aya! For all things New! New attitudes, etc :o)
Glad that you dont feel like a crotchety old man (haha...for some strange reason that word "crotchety" is kinda fun to say!)

Anywhoo....bummers on that crotchety crock pot not being plugged in! And yes, you are not a crotchety camel either :o) ...sorry...like I said..."crotchety" is stuck in my head for the time being...

Blessings & Aloha!
Come on over to my place! I love to find your comments :o)

Jenny said...

I'm sorry you were having a terrible, horrible, very bad, no good day - ha!

This made me laugh, but I was totally laughing WITH you and not AT you!

Thanks for a nifty little stop on our journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "N"!

You are neat!
