not so random thoughts...

joining the pieces
for a better future

just checking in to say hi to all of you. thanks so much for lifting my spirits each day with your touching posts and the kind comments you leave here. i read each and every one of them and smile. you really are the best friends anyone could have.

speaking of best friends, my darling Tracy, author of Pink Purl, has recently re-opened her etsy shop. such creative and beautiful pieces of jewelry and accessories are featured, perfect for that unique Valentine's day gift.

with creative juices are flowing all around, i must admit that i am beginning to eye my mailman a little more these days...does he have my *gift of jewels* in that bag? you know, my piece of the puzzle? well, let it be known, me a go watch him real close til he delivers it safe and sound...nah go tek no but or because. lol.

and guess what else? for those of you who know the secret side of me (you know, the one who enjoys watching hot men in fireproof suits driving really fast cars), the new NASCAR season begins this Saturday!!! what shall i do with myself? ;) well, my daughter is thrilled that Danica Patrick will be driving part-time in nascar this year...training to join the big boys. oh yeah baby.

changing gears (no pun intended).

haiti, always on my mind:

*25 years after this song raised awareness about the famine in Africa, a group of musicians, singers, and other celebrities have gathered together to remake "We are the World" to benefit our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

*Also BET will be hosting a two hour benefit concert, "S.O.S. - Help for Haiti," tomorrow, Friday, February 5, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. ET. The program will be aired on BET, Centric, MTV and VH1. I'll be the crying Rastawoman with the nascar t-shirt seated in the first row. Do stop by if you can.

peace and love, my friends.

Go Danica! She is a wonder... I hope she will do well this season! My Mom is a HUGE NASCAR fan--I'm know what she'll be doing Saturday too--glued to the TV! ;o)
How sweet are you to give a shout-out about mylittle shop--thank you for that. :o) Thanks too for the benefit concert news--I didn't know about this one before. Happy Weekend ahead, my friend ((LOVE & HUGS))

You are so sweet to always remember those in Haiti that are going through so much. Thank you for helping me to remember exactly how blessed I am, every day.

Thank you for visiting. I am touched whenever I visit your blog. It's important to be part of a bigger world. You have opened another door for me. Me? I'm all about the football. Peace and equality for all.

I can no longer envision a February without Daytona; it's a sure sign of spring! I never imagined finding NASCAR amidst poetry; ah, but jewels have many facets now don't they? (Boogedy, boogedy indeed)
Fun post!

Lol I am not that thrilled with Nascar racings... Once some friends some Spain camed for vacations here in Portugal and they absolutely had to be in front of tv to see it, they even bought chicken and fries - I guess I do that with football/soccer :P

Have a blessed Day****

Wow, it is hard to believe that We are the World was 25 years ago. I love that it will be remade to help the people of Haiti. My childrens middle school just had a fund raiser for Haiti last week and are planning another for later in February. We aren't forgetting.

I'm hanging out at home all weekend. Maybe I'll check out some of those hot men!

I remember walking up the streets going to Monroeville Mall and hearing the song, "We are the world" in the air! It was so beautiful then and I know it is beautiful now! Love your random thoughts!
