Lemons to lemonade

Whoa nelly.  I guess I didn't realize how "heavy" my last post sounded till I lightened myself up with some tunes.  Music always has that affect on me.  Love it.  (I still believe what I wrote though)  Anyways.  Yes, I would be lying if I told you my monday has been "easy peasy" - as Brody likes to say.  It hasn't.  But rather than mope I busted through it waiting for the "sun to come out tomorrow", so to speak.
I did call Tony crying (what's with me being so honest lately?)- and he told me I should go get a cupcake with my gift card to make my day better.  That was when I rear-ended a heavy set smoking dude who wasn't happy.  OF course. (umm.. why do my not so great days always include me rear-ending someone?) ha.
I ran away from home to get some photo-venture therapy.  It's just not as good alone.  But I'll get the hang of it, I'm sure.  I may or may not have come across snake skin, a violin spider-esque creature, stinging nettle, and wet dirty conditions which was the reason for my fashion NO.  (rain boots with skirt ensemble.. never know what I was walking into in there, hence, the boots.)
It was pretty funny at one point in the day I had this unusual burst of energy (a kind of, I'm-GETTING-OUT-of-this-rut-epiphany) where I started dancing/running about to head downstairs.  But RIGHT as I did that my knee met my cedar chest and BAM.  Fat bruise, near tears. Haha.  It hurt.  It was one of those days where I feel like heaven is just getting a kick out of my "misfortunes".  I must be crackin everyone up.  My life is a comedy-drama to them. (;
The end result was just what it always is- I took my own advice and I made lemonade out of that otherwise sour day.  It tastes oh- so- good being happy.
Because as I've always found, things always look up if you let them.

Freak. I am super impressed with your patience. Way to be. I will stop complaining about my day where, in comparison, nothing went wrong.

You have to laugh at days like that, because there is nothing else left to do, and if you don't laugh, you'll cry and laughter makes you happier.

Your photos are beauitful. I'm scared of snakes, so I applaud you for not running for the hills when you seen the snake skin *shudders* and I'm glad you're feeling better even if your day went a little down hill... if it makes you feel any better... one day I uh was jumping over huge boulders because I wanted to feel like a 6 year old and completely missed a step and slammed into hard rough edges,.. I got a scrap the length of my finger on my knee and then like 20 minutes later I caught my then bf cheating on me :-/ but the next day was better... (:

Ouch! That bruise sounds so mean! I probably would have bit my lip to avoid crying and feeling foolish, but goodness knows a younger me would have sobbed! OUCH OUCH OUCH!

I do have to say I think it was worth it, these pictures are great, and I do LOVE your boots... You've got to be aware, who knows what creepy crawly creatures live in the grass!!!

BEAUTIFUL pictures!! That's the prettiest spot! I'm just going to say this... THAT needs to be the "meadow" in the the Twilight movies. Not that stupid non-meadow space they use. Hahaha!
And you are gorgeous, as always. Where did you get that skirt?! I've been looking for a white skirt that comes to my knees but just haven't found one I love :(

I had a horrible week last week that ended with me crying in the car:( Even though I took it out on Hon, I saw my error and he took me out for dinner. Oh btw, it started with me running into a pole and hurting my bumper:( I understand. These times happen. I'm glad days are only 24 hours and then we can start over again.
