Checking in...

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. -John Burroughs

Life has been so busy, I miss my blog...last weekend I had full intentions of writing a post, but I never found enough time to sit and do it.

I've been checking email on my phone, haven't even touched this computer keyboard in a week.  I miss visiting all of my favorite blogs.

I thought I might have some time to really write something good today.  But, nope, not going to happen.

I'm trying to get motivated to do yardwork with pictures from last year.  My garden looks nothing like this right now!! :(

It has finally stopped raining here in Norther CA,  and my poor neglected yard do the bathrooms, which are screaming to be cleaned.

So for now...yes, I am alive.  Life is busy, but as always, I'm staying positive.  Working 6 days a week leaves only Sunday to catch up on the house, yard, etc.
Weeknights I have been baking and crafting when I can, but sadly, I don't have a picture to show for it. 
Oh well, there will be more baking and crafting in the near future.

Been hanging with my college girl this past week, but she's back on her way to school now...always a funky day on the day she leaves.

Write more soon...I hope!

Happy Thoughts,

It's all about Birthdays...

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown

I am not one of those people who dread their birthday each year. 
I love birthdays.
I love celebrations, and birthdays are little celebrations of the day we were born.
I can't say I am crazy about getting older...but then again, what's the alternative, right?!

I think it was perfect that my birthday landed on a Sunday this year.
After all, it was my only day off all week.
It was the finale to a week filled with good things.

To start...the little second grader at my school. 
He gets to stay!
I'm so thrilled for him, you can't even imagine.
It's just temporary at this point, but he is with a family who truly wants him!
And they live in the neighborhood of our school. 
I love when life works out like that...when people who truly deserve goodness in their lives receive it.
It's funny how a few days can go by and things can turn around in such a positive way.

Friday night I was treated to a delicious dinner out by my parents.  I also got a very special present that night.  My girls and parents all pitched in and gave me a gift card for this...

Something I've been wanting for a long time!

I LOVE the Apple Store...I wanted to buy it there as opposed to ordering it online.  Well first, I didn't want to wait for it to ship.  You don't even have to wait in line there, they ring you up right there wherever you are standing, so COOL!

I had a hard time walking down the street after my purchase, I couldn't keep my eyes off my new little friend...actually it's more than that....I think I'm in LOVE!

I think that whenever your heart desires something, the longer you have to wait for it, the sweeter the satisfaction when it finally becomes yours. 

Such a good weekend, filled with good food, my family, friends, some work, and a little splurge. 

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest. ~Larry Lorenzoni

It turned out to be raining, so I couldn't work in my yard today as planned, but maybe that was a little gift from Mother Nature, so that I would relax a little :)

I'm a happy girl right now...Birthdays are pretty awesome! 
Age is pointless, no way do I feel the 44 years my birth certificate says, in my heart I'm easily 25!

Next week I hope to have some more great news to share, but for now I won't jinx it ;)

Wishing you MANY birthdays and Happy Thoughts EVERYDAY,
