A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Happy Birthday, Therese!

Writing this on the 18th, Friday. Yes, it really is my birthday. I gardened all day, made one necklace and finished another. Having the family over for a cookout tomorrow. I ordered my own birthday cake! Well, that's all I wanted for dinner--didn't want to go out--so I figured I could get exactly what I wanted for my own birthday cake. I wanted this cake from Coldstone Creamery, but they didn't know what I was talking about, so I ordered a "custom" cake. Tomorrow we'll have yellow cake batter (they didn't have white), fresh strawberry ice cream on the first layer and strawberry cheesecake ice cream on the top layer--mixed with graham crackers and fresh strawberries, then frosted with white frosting and garnished with fresh strawberries. YUMMY! I love it!

I asked for a lighted magnifier lamp for my birthday gift. I'll let you know if I get it! Can't see anything these days.

Pleasant dreams!

Thanks, Dora and D! I had a lovely cookout today with my kids and grand-kids, my husband, my mom and step-dad, my sister and a neighbor friend. I didn't get the light, but my mom has one she was going to bring this evening and forgot. Looks like I get my gardening helper cart (from Mike) and the light, too! The cake was yummy. I'd give you a piece if I could!
