EyeSpy: A Sign

This weeks 'EyeSpy' topic was a little tricky but got me thinking about the little signs that suddenly appear when we need them or others that are always there but life is SO busy we just walk on by... or maybe we choose to ignore them, whats up with that?..
that gut instinct, when something happens we're quick to say 'i knew that would happen' or 'i could see that coming'....we need to trust in ourselves a little more and in our intuition!
i always think if I get sick or rundown with a cold its my body saying 'slow down...take it easy', a cold stormy night is always wonderful when we're indoors but maybe its a sign for us to think of the homeless out there struggling to keep warm and dry....
if we suddenly see a rainbow after a sun shower, its nature telling us to stop and stare at the beauty of it, its free, its there...enjoy it!
Do you remember as a kid watching the clouds and guessing their shape, what fun that was huh?
when do we do that now...hardly ever!
when do we stop to smell the roses - hardly ever!

today I hope you can all take time to 'stop' and 'smell the roses' - there is beauty and happiness and good life all around us - lets observe and enjoy!!
Thanks to August Street for a great theme this week!

  4. Good you made us remember!
    and of course I love this outfit for the garden (of course) includding the wellies!


  5. Congratulations on getting your cards on Leeloo!

  6. Congratulations on the cards!

    And thanks for a lovely eye spy... moment. This is the first one I've come across that talked about paying more attention to signs that are trying to tell us things (other than how to cross the road, :)

  7. This is such an important reminder for us to slow down, take some time out, and appreciate the little things in life (and also reflect on how lucky we are).

    Too often life can get us all caught up with rushing about and being busy, and we can forget what's really important...

    Thanks for the reminder...

  8. Wow great post!! That is a great sign to stop and appreciate the good things in life. OOhh how exciting selling at Leeloo!

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Thanks for sharing Anastasia - a lovely refreshing blog post to start the day with =)

  10. Great post - a good reminder to start the week with!

  11. Congrats on your new stockist!

  12. I'm always stopping people and demanding they smell the roses. :) Not strangers, hehehe, people I'm walking with. It was part of my vow in a speech I made at my Grandmothers funeral, that I would honour her memory by always stopping to smell the roses. So I do.

    And you're right, it takes a concerted effort to remember to follow and appreciate the small signs in life. But so worth remembering.

    someone answer this question, or give me links to it, please, please the department of public works for a large city has decided to develop a web-based pothole tracking and repair system (PHTRS). A description follows: Citizens can log onto a web site and report the location and severity of potholes. As potholes are reported they are logged within a "public works department repair system" and are assigned an identifying number, stored by street address, size (on a scale of 1 to 10), location (middle, curb, etc), district (determined from street address), and repair priority (determined from the size of the pothole). Work order data are associated with each pothole and include pothole location and size, repair crew identifying number, number of people on crew, equipment assigned, hours applied to repair, hole status (work in progress, repaired, temporary repair, not repaired), amount of filler material used and cost of repair (computed from hours applied, number of people, material and equipment used). Finally, a damage file is created to hold information about reported damage due to the pothole and includes citizen's name, address, phone number, type of damage, and dollar amount of damage. PHTRS is an on-line system; all queries are to be made interactively. a). Draw a UML use-case diagram for the PHTRS system. You'll have to make a number of assumptions about the manner in which a user interacts with this system. b). Develop a class model for the PHTRS system. can someone please please please solve for me the question

    I've tried pressing a safety pin into the hole that should automatically open it, but that doesn't work either. I have to sit down and press the button at least 20 times before it opens. All it does it make a sound like it's stuck, but even when the outside cover is lowered (I have a Compaq), it still makes the sound.
