Here’s a Gold Star for You!
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Matthew 6, 28 & 29
Every year, like clockwork, the Stella d’Oro lilies outside our kitchen window come into bloom. And every year, like clockwork, I become Katharine Hepburn. I come back inside and say to Mr. Merillion, “The lilies are in bloom again.”
And here’s Katharine:

Hello, I live in Northern NJ and my husband and I have been married for many years. (Bob says, “many l o o o o o n g years”). He grew up in Nutley, NJ; I grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY. I have family in Staten Island and in eastern Florida. I love art, and like to paint in oils. Have been studying painting for a long time. (I’m an amateur, not a professional). Just recently got interested in WordPress & I find that I like writing more than I ever did. Now I’m trying to make my site good to look at, but totally don’t know what I’m doing yet! All I know is I think a lot, and it feels good to write down all the thoughts from all the years into my blog. I’m not saying I actually remember all the thoughts from all the years, but I think of a few now and then.
These are my top favorite posts. Actually, these are my ONLY posts! :)
I always said to my beautiful niece, Christine, "How's my Top Favorite Niece today?" and she would say, "I'm your ONLY niece!" True, but she was my top favorite anyway.
