Color of Love: Photo Challenge Day 9

All You Need Is Love

Is it really Wednesday already?  Lots done, lots to be done. Good news, bad news. It's always something, right?

Bad news first. We left the hose faucet on. It had a sprayer on the top so this shouldn't have been a problem. However, from the heat of the sun and perhaps a faulty connector the sprayer popped off. What this means is this, the hose ran and ran without our knowledge until our well was pretty spent. Done. No agua. Zippo. By the time I noticed that the hose head had popped off  (due to weird chugging noises coming from kitchen sink where water supply enters house), it had spewed our dang water all over the backyard. All in all, not good considering that we were on the low side due to lack of rain this summer. Good news? It came back up some overnight. It rained a bit this morning and there is more expected later.  We have ways to conserve water and have gotten pretty good at it over the years. I'm not sweating this one. I might not get a laundry done for a couple of days while the well comes back up, but that certainly isn't the end of the world, is it? We have a pool, so we won't be too dirty. And any moment now my mother will be emailing or calling me to tell me I can use her shower and her washing machine if need be.  More good news? Spur of the moment visitors from Ireland on the heels of the ones who were just here, and a week before our other Dublin family arrives. It's all good. The Bates of Clonsilla, minus sister in law Angie will arrive Friday night. Yay. I'm confident all will be well by the time they arrive.... get it....well?

Need more good news? How about love?

Today's photo challenge is all about it. The color of love. 

Red and blue hearts from Karen. They really do speak to the color of love, because if you've been around awhile, you know that love isn't always moonbeams and roses.

A pink peony...soft, tender, with a little rough edge. Perfectly wonderful.

Love can be as strong as granite and comes in as many colors.

Ashley couldn't pick just one color so she went with the full gamut, which includes her husband being a goofball.

Glistening white snow. Just how you feel when you're in love.

Love is always a bright spot.

And love can make you glow.

Love of life can be as pure as the driven snow.

The color most widely associated with love.

Home is all about love.

Cari-Jane has found that home isn't a place, it's wherever your heart is.

Thanks for your submissions ladies. If there are anymore of you out there who would like to join in the last few challenges, please feel free. You can find more info on the Mercantile Muse photo challenge here.  Next up: 'sky high'. I'll need your submissions by end of the day tomorrow for Friday's post.

Hope you are all having a fabulous week. Mine was made even better this morning by a couple of things:

* Great business advice from Nichole of The Paris Print Shop via etsy's Quit Your Day Job article. It's so refreshing to read something in this series that actually makes real sense. Too often they feature people who haven't even come close to being in the category of 'quit your day job entrepreneurs', but Nichole's interview was on the level with real meat.

*and THIS. Nothing short of amazing. 

Ta ta for now.

Peace out,
