What Retirees DO

 Please accept my apologies for yet another Ballerina Post.

This is what retirees who do NOT travel DO instead.

We stand in the yard and STARE.

Last night while staring at  Leonard and Lizzie (our resident lizards) hiding behind the flower, (yes, I  name and talk to lizards) I suddenly realized......

 This One is PERFECT it looks Much More Like a Ballerina than the last one.
Number ONE
 I decided this will make a GREAT animated movie and if it makes a lot of money, I can Travel and you will not have to look at these post... soooooo
Your Multi-Part Assignment today is......
Name the movie
Name the ballerina
Choose 1, 2 or 3 for The Look  
Can you SEE the animated movie from these creations?
Number TWO
 Here is My Problem.....
At the end of the day:
  • The car isn't washed.
  • The bills aren't paid.
  • There is a warm can of coke sitting on the work surface.
  • The flowers don't have enough water.
  • There is still only one cheque in my chequebook.
  • I can't find the TV remote.
  • I can't find my glasses and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why  nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realise this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail to see what came in while I was standing and staring.
Number Three
Now you know what I do all day

I am dizzy.... You want me to think to much before I have had my coffee... I was just getting a visual of you standing in the yard talking to the flowers and lizards. That in itself is a hoot... Me I would not think it strange as I do it too. Your neighbors are sure use to it as well. Be careful when you start talking to the trees and bushes...

I am gonna get back to you on the rest after I have had my coffee...

Your life sounds similar to mine,busy all day,but nothing gets done.In the end,if we had a good time,that is all that matters.I can see you are having fun and I thank you for sharing that with me.I love the creativity.Now If you'll excuse me i have to go see what i can see in my yard.

Even though we do some traveling, I know the feeling you describe very well. I can never understand how I can get so tired when we're at home and still have so many things that need to be done -- yesterday!

The movie name is easy "The Passion Part II" Picture #1 definitely. And her name would of course be Melissa Gibson. So Cool!!!! And really and truly, I think a cartoon series about a ballerina flower would be a great idea, there are much stupider shows on than this!! Little girls would love it, and all the other ballerinas could be different flowers, teaching them to learn the flower names. Honest to Pete, it would make a fortune. I am laughing at your comment from our new follower Tammy, I just LOVE her and her blog. And I love what you have done with these pictures, again, you are SO creative AND talented!!

That sounds exactly like MY day! Where did the time go! Especially when the hubster comes home and asks, what did YOU do today ... ugh!

Tipper said...

Love it! It might have taken up your day-but at least you had fun-and made my day too! That is one cute ballerina : )

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I know what to expect as a retiree but I guess I am there already:) You can keep posting about your ballerina flower since it is gorgeous

S. Etole said...

I always find a smile when I visit here!

Kilauea Poetry said...

That's what we do best..you take more in when you begin to slow down..besides, its better than staring at bug zappers-
Passionate eruption
Purple puff dolls (lol)
I love love them all! I did one once for a meme but in mono and someone said the same- that it reminded them of a dancer-

Ann said...

Can't think of a movie name but the ballerina's name would have to be Paula Purple. Leonard and Lizzy also should be in the movie. I think I like picture number 3

Lucy aka Roeann said...

No fair copying my list.

I love that flower. It's strange, but pretty.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Fellow Retiree, You said it... I can be busy all day long with NOTHING to show for it... I am glad though that we do still travel. Otherwise I would truly run out of things to say!!!!!!! ha

Love your ballerina....
Hugs,
Betsy

SquirrelQueen said...

I love this one. Her arms raised, she twirls and her skirt swirls.

HA! Cool list.

Snapper II said...

I love all three, but I guess I will pick number two. The name of the movie would be,
"Pandora wears Purple Bloomers."
I guess you know her name now....
Love, Madeline :-)

Deb said...

I love your imagination....great photos...

photowannabe said...

Thanks for the huge smile today. Adorable ballerina.
I wish I could think of a good name for her but I haven't had my coffee yet either. The brain isn't in gear.
I tend to stare out my diningroom window alot and watch the hummingbird flit around. Where does the time go?

EG Wow said...

You have a very active imagination, Sandra, and you make people happy with your humour. :))

DawnTreader said...

I think No 1, and it would make a great animated movie, reminding of some of the early Disney ones. It should have special music composed to go with it. The name of the ballerina is Violetta. Well - just Violet, really, but she prefers Violetta as her stage name! I think you should give Leonard and Lizzie parts in the movie too.

I love the second pic! When I look at the picture, I think about the Lord's sense of humor. I found one of these flowers at our Botanical Garden a few weeks ago. I titled my photo "Carnival Ride."

Judy Royal Glenn said...

What program did you use to add the special effects....or the specific feature from the program? I have never seen this before and think it is really neat!

Chatty Crone said...

I like number two. How about Fairy Explosion? lol

Hey I am like you and am right where you are.

Keep the pictures and the fun coming because I love it!
