Welcome to another

 our theme is Messy

Nature can be messy.

"And at the end of the day
 your feet should be dirty
your hair messy
and your eyes sparkling."

Beauty amidst messy.

Need I say anything?

"Amidst the confusion of the times,
the conflicts of the conscience,
and the turmoil of daily living,
an abiding faith becomes an
anchor to our lives."
Thomas S. Monson

Follow as many squiggly lines as you can
 and enjoy messy anew, 
a most thrilling journey.

"Declare this smite time,
extracting precious gems
and wholly hours you share
to fruitcake a friend so dear."
Bradley Chicho

"The friendship we share grows amidst
the craggy rock pond;
reeds of water spray fireflies
scented with bonfires."
Bradley Chichco

I'm thankful for our friendship!
Enjoy your day
and take good care of you!

At the end of a day in the garden (frequently my best days) my feet are dirty, my hands are dirty, my hair messy - and the housework neglected.

Ah yes, we are in the thick of a very messy time!
I also chose some natural messes, although it was ultimately man that made the mess. Isn't that the way it often works?
