Thanks so much, Thier! I needed that! Oooooh - these are gorgeous. Let me go get my crystal vase. These will bring such a pretty color into my room!

So, birthday girl (yeah, I know I'm late, but it's more fun to celebrate for a week) did you have fun at your sister's house?

I did! Actually, my birthday is the tenth, but she wanted to celebrate early. It was nice. We took a long walk through a wonderful park -- many acres of trees, grasses and flowers, and a duck pond stocked with bass. Beautiful and so relaxing. Her house is very "zen", a great contrast to mine, which is always noisy with animals and adorned with interesting clutter. She craves the quiet, as she works with addicted or disadvantaged and dysfunctional people all day who have so many needs and problems. Home needs to be low stimulation. We discovered that, when we have our long talks, we burst into tears at the same moments! We're very different, but underneath we have the same heart and the same wiring.

What a wonderful memory to bring back home!

Well, then, I guess I'll give you your present on the tenth then...

I have a crummy headache, so I think I'm going to go get a latte or some lunch. I'll be back shortly. Here's some French wired ribbon to tie around your tulip vase...Several pastel watercolor shades to set off the flowers. See you in a few!

I'll take some ice cream. But it needs something...ah ha! Fresh strawberries!

Yum!

Mmm...Thanks, Luvs. I'll plop a scoop into my latte. Slurp. Think I'm gonna live...

Latest project: When we lived in CA, we had two bunnies. We perched them over our compost bins to make the compost...well, COMPOST! I ordered a basic bunny book from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and I'm thinking of doing that again. Anybody know about raising bunnies in a colder, wetter climate than the Bay Area?
