Growing In Unity Day 3

I don’t know about you, but in my opinion Wednesday is the Canada Goose of the week. It has no real urgency to move anywhere and it hisses at you when you need to get a move on. Like the goose, Wednesday has the ability to fly on by, yet it stares at you with lots of indignation while it stands there daring you to hit it with your car. You know if Wednesday had the ability, it would flip you the middle feather. Yep, that’s Wednesday.

There are two good solutions for getting through today. Cocktails and looking at pretty things. I can’t pour you a cocktail, but I can give you something pretty to look at.

I combined two sets to make this creation.  I don't know about you, but I love the confetti dots!




As always leave a comment to be entered into a drawing for a Unity Stamp prize package!
