Crown bows to the earth
fragrance disperses love
Hail to the queen bee
This is in honor of my friend Rhonda’s birthday yesterday! She is definitely one of the most loving and heartfelt people I know. I don’t think any of us have every heard her raise her voice and trust me she has had many a reasons to at times. She is a blessing to all of us and definitely a Queen Bee to me and all that know her. You might remember the song she wrote, You Are the Star I posted in honor of the Military Child. If you missed it have a listen here.
I had every intention of getting these flowers to her yesterday but they never made it out of the car…. oops. Maybe thus the wilt? I sent her this Haiku last night and she loved it and said she was heading out of town tomorrow so she would just have to enjoy the picture.
Whew…. lucky me as they are looking a little worse for ware and besides, I love the smell of lilies which always fill my senses with delight. Besides which, I am the one this is supposed to be in Mexico right now so I’ll just pretend I’m in the tropics today. Funny thing is everyone is gone around here and our kids are too. One of mine just flew out to Aspen, another is in Israel; both for work but judging by the pictures their work is a lot of play. One is in Mexico for her last hooray before she starts teaching again and one is always off somewhere.
I love our town in summer because everyone is out of town and I own the road and hills on my walk which always fill my senses. Besides, we were right to cancel as putting the kabits on issues that arise and keeping the crews on schedule is essential. No, we’re still not in yet but soon. I’ve had a lot of clients exposed to Covid so it’s been a lighter week which means getting more organized and that feels awesome!
I’m expecting a full crew today fingers and toes crossed but I’m not making any bets.
Hope your day buzzes with love and beauty and all of the things that make your heart sing!
Happy birthday to Rhonda!!🎂🧁💕✨🌹🌺💐The flowers are still beautiful even with the wilting, Cindy. And as you stated, they smell beautiful even 🥀 wilted.✨
Thanks Amber. They really are gorgeous! 💖💖💖

Happy belated birthday to Rhonda.
awww sweet! Thanks !
You are welcome.
Hi Cindy – it sounds quiet in your town for sure
And forbid – September is the time we enjoy our local beach the most – prices drop and boardwalk is wide open and just the locals are around
It is not the “best” beach compared to other areas – but we glean what we can!
And cheers to a full crew
And one day – you will be moved in and enjoying it
It is a lovely time of year and how lovely you have the beach close. Any beach is a good beach to me and you are so right about gleaning what we can.
The crew was all here today and we’re so close I can taste it.. Thanks so much!!
Happy birthday to your friend, dear Cindy💕🙂 and nice poem too🙂
Oh thanks and I know she is appreciative as well. Sooo happy you liked my poem.. thanks a lot! 💖
Your flowers for a special friend are a nice gesture. They still have some life in them! 💐 Safe travels to your family and a pretend topical adventure for you and your husband. 😄 Think how relaxing your vacation will be after your home improvements are done! 😌🏖️🌅
Thanks so much Michele. they are beautiful and I’m enjoying them for sure. I think a stayca is in order and maybe even sleeping in our bed this weekend I hope.. 💖💖💖🙏🙏
It is the little things that make a big difference. 😊 Best wishes! 💖
Happy Birthday to Rhonda. Lovely flower arrangement. Did you know I used to compete in rose arranging? I was so happy when I won Queen of Show since my brother-in-law thought arranging flowers was less than manly.
oh that’s sweet Tim~! Wow, I did not!!! what didn’t you do! Oh i so love that … way to show him.. hahaha 💖🙏
Happy Hump Day Cindy! I love summer in my town for a similar reason. School is out and that takes a lot of traffic off the streets. Have a great evening 😄🌹
Thanks my friend. It’s the best for sure John. Enjoy my friend! 💖
Lovely tribute to your friend please wish her a happy birthday from me ❤️💐🤗
Thanks so much Mom and I bet she’s reading and will see these! 💖💖
What a nice surprise and honor to get such high praise from you Cindy. You are definitely the one who spreads your love, thoughts, poetry, and spirituality to so many. So I bow to you and will do what I can to live up to your kind words.
Thank you for the lovely haiku. I will treasure it. It is such a wonderful gift that comes straight from your big heart!!! xoxo
I found you birthday girl and now MOB AGAIN! YOU my friend are most deserving and I’m so blessed to have you as a friend. Awww your words have brought tears to my eyes and I feel so blessed and honored. Thank you for always seeing my sour and knowing my heart which is the biggest gift I could ever hope for in life. I’m elated you love your Haiku. Few words that tell a big story. There is nothing for you to do but Be-e because you have already done soooo much. I love you! 💖💐💖💐🤗🙏

Isn’t is wonderful to have a special friend like Rhonda?? Happy happy birthday to her and many more trips around the sun! My BFF is my neighbor Debby; we’ve been friends for 35+ years and we even look alike! People always mistake us for sisters, some even say we look like twins. There isn’t a thing we wouldn’t do for each other – sorta like you and Rhonda. Luv ya, Cindy G! Hope your day is as fantastic as you are!! 💕 🌹🌟❤️
It sure is and thanks for the wishes. oh that is so special to have your friend Debby. It’s just like husband and wives looking alike about after a while. thanks dearest Nancy and same to you my friend!! 💖💖
Cindy, another day of making lemons into lemonade! Kudos to you for handling the frustrations of life in such a positive manner! <3 Take time to smell the lilies, and have a lovely day!
I’m getting pretty good at it Cheryl! 😂😂😂 Thanks so much and it will be nice for a reprieve!
They are staring at me as we talk.. thanks my friend 💖 You have a great day as well.💖
Happy birthday to Rhonda and the bouquet of flowers look beautiful even though they were spoilt. Splendid post Cindy. Too good.
Oh you are too kind to forgive my wilting flowers that made for a good poem however dear Kamal. Blessings to you always dear frioend!
You are always welcome dear Cindy. Blessings to you too dear friend
thanks bunches. 💖
💖💖🙏💖💖🙏🙏and to you!
Hi Cindy, leaving flowers in the car in the heat is something I have also done. I now send Julie Lawson ecards to people. They are absolutely lovely and don’t wilt. August is holiday month in the Northern Hemisphere and all my International friends are also out and about. Our holiday period is December.
oh what a good idea.. what a brilliant idea Robbie! I just love the quiet. Hope you are having a good time. December is busy here too but many get out of dodge.
Lovely poem…happy b’day to your friend, Cindy ✨❤️💫
Thanks so much Dearest Navin. Much appreciated!
Have a buzzzzzz….ing day. Enjoy.
