Some days there are no answers to some of life’s questions and no easy fix to some of life’s problems.  I’ve thought I could fix things at different times, like this sprinkler head,

but I discovered again that there are some things I’m incapable of fixing.

While there is a trusted sprinkler repair person to fix this mess I created, sadly there is not a magical 1-800 life repair number.   

There was a time when I had so many theories and wanted so many answers, but now that I’m middle-aged I can honestly say that there are days that I prefer to be blinded by colors more than some of life’s truths.  While I’ve never been one to drown my sorrows, I can lose myself in those great color vibes.  I recently escaped to the colorful paint aisle at the home improvement center and this sign was painted with the colors sea glass, rich plum, island splash and coral isle.  Just saying the names makes me feel a little better.

Gabby’s still improving and her latest colorful bandage did brighten my day for a moment, although I must admit I’m not sure the color vibes improved her attitude after being sick this long.

While I’m not a fan of hot summer weather and prefer the cool breezes of fall, I love the color of summer.  Some days even those great color vibes of summer need an extra boost with colorful containers. 

I’ve also discovered that a double shot of those great color vibes can make you feel even better.

  1. So happy to read Gabby is getting better! Love the colour names – a little poem.
    If it makes you feel better, I have a plumber coming on Monday to fix my “repair” – damn those YouTube videos…
    Looks like Argentina may be heading for an early exit. Terrible performance!

    1. Thank you!🙂 I was on such a roll with those YouTube videos and it was disappointing to have such an easy repair go so wrong, especially since the sprinkler was working somewhat before my repair.😁 A horrible World Cup for Messi and Argentina and I’m ready to replace them on my favorite list with Iceland. Another weekend of rain on the way and I hope I can convince Gabby that we need to stay indoors watching football for one more weekend.🙂


  2. Colour is the most important element in a garden for me. Whilst form, scent, movement, touch and sound all add something, it is the way colour interact and express themselves through different textures and shapes which brings me the most excitement.
    That is a very stylish bandage. Does it come with coordinating head-cone?

    1. I love adding more color to the garden and I’ve been trying to fill in the color lapses again this year. This is the first year I’ve added the colorful containers and I’ve enjoyed the additional color. I love the idea of the colorful head-cone and since it appears she will be wearing one for a while, I may need to decorate the cone now.😁
