Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

My "B" Day, Field Trip to the Yarn Shops, and Flowers Blooming




This little guy I got at a boutique in Seal Beach and he was too cute. His hair is that stretchy rubber stuff...and to the right is my metal fisherman at my pond.
The flower I am holding is a purple morning glory






these are just starting they are my Moon flowers
here is a pink rose from my flowerbeds and asnail my daughter got me






These are varigated geraniums that my son picked for me 3 Mom's days ago down by the Queen Mary. It was just one branch and now I have them everywhere. I always get so many complitments about how beautiful they bloom.
the ones also the front edge are also varigated pink geraniums and they have really bloomed this year








My horse is getting covered with greenery, and I couldn't resist this pen with the chick on the top, sepecially since my groups name is Stitch n' Chicks...hey I think I will get a few for the group... :)











Another snail in my garden and the lettuce plant is sprouting babies this year











Gerber Daisys and purple and white daisys are really blooming








Orange succulents and my Tiki with the parrots beak plant surrounding its bottom
























more geraniums in pink and Whisteria in the purple hanging over the fence. the little reading frog my friend got me because she knows I love to read.

this store had so many samples hanging everywhere. Yummy....
A $285 skein of yarn...wow!!!!! I had to feel it











Friday was my "B day and I tried to blow out these candles but my DH bought ones that kept lighting up....so.....I kept trying... :) now to show off some of my "B" day pressies...My DH got me a Swift....yippy!!!! And beautiful peach roses, a new spade and cutters with rubber handles to help with the aches of cutting and digging. I am always playing around around the pond and in the flowerbeds, as you can see my flowers are blooming everywhree. I just love love the color, then I got a wire Tea pot basket to hold me tea bags. I love this little tea pot. I saw at Polly's Pies and fell in love with it and he remembered and got me one... :) Then my DS got me a digital key chain and it holds 60 photos...I cannot wait to put my pis on it, and a cordless mouse for my laptop and my desk puter....I hate the cord one I have now... :) my best buddy came out Sat night and spent the night with me and she brought me the cutest frog and turtle for my pond, and took me to dinner. DH went fishing for the weekend so we had a girls weekend. We went shopping in Seal Beach Sunday and bought flags and other goodies and then went and ate out on the pier. Then we went over to the Japanese Gardens and walked around. They were having an Orchid display, wow!!!! Sat daytime my local knit group and I went on a field trip to 3 shops and had lunch down in Hermosa Beach at Henessey's by their pier. The shops we went to were Beach knit Shop, L'atiere, and Concepts in Yarn....they were all different and had some great yarns and patterns that I absolutly had to get... :) I also had to get a few new projects of course. And if you look at the one shot Donna is holding a skein of yarn that costs $285 .....unbelievable...What fun....

  2. Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I know what you mean. I had been looking for a walking/hiking partner and remembered my friend Sandi who used to work with me and is also retired. She only lives about 3 miles from me so it worked out well.

  3. Hi there, just dropping by to say Hello,

    I found your blog from the Big Bang Master List.

    Have a nice day.

  4. Thanks for the smile. m Some of your shots are great.

    Now for the reason I came by………
    As you may be aware, the Big Bang has eclipsed 780 sites, which is pretty amazing. I feel that the 1,000 site goal is very doable. If you haven’t updated your list in a while I would suggest doing so at http://mondaymorningpower.blogspot.com/2008/01/big-bang-master-list.html, and moving it to your front page, however, that is not the reason for leaving this comment.

    I have launched 2 new sites that are “link-love” based, but emphasize quality over quantity.

    I believe that everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to participate in what could eventually be bigger than the Big Bang, please follow the appropriate url and join in. Tagging is totally optional, but encouraged.

  5. Hi. Wanted to say thanks for visiting again. You asked where in SoCal I live. I live in Canyon Country in the Santa Clarita Valley which is about 50 miles up Interstate 5 from Los Angeles.
    Have you checked out my Photoblog yet? I just started it about 4 days ago. You can find it at my profile.
