She gives her all for just one day then bows her head to God and fades away to nourish the next generation.

Vintage Thingie Thursday and Tea Talk Thursday

Vintage Thingie Thursday
Tea Talk Thursday



This is a paper mache sculpture of a aged Mexican woman.
She is very old and work worn looking, carrying two water bags.

I have had this for some time and can't even remember where I got it.
On the bottom there is a tag

El Aboroda Mano-Hecho en Mexico EB M.R. Xalisco


The art work is exquisite.
I found one of a Mexican worker on eBay with a bid of $100.00

Having---Black tea by Lipton with lemon in my favorite 
cobalt blue cup.
1/2 banana.

Feeling------ blessed on this Thursday. I believe I am getting the idea on how to handle the diabetes.
Thinking about how wonderful it is to sit in the sun and hear the birds and turn my fish pond on and listen to the fountain.
Life is good.

Go here for some more Tea Talk with Ruth

Oh, I guess the snow is gone!! Apparently you sent it here. I believe I'll be joining you in that cup of tea, and staying warm and cozy indoors!

I really like your quote about the daylily and see why you took the name. I never knew that was why it was called a daylily. Very beautiful : )
