Showers bring Flowers!

Today started out raining....

It slowed down from time to time but kept raining...

but I didn't care 'cuz the door bell rang and there stood a delivery person, in the rain, with a bouquet of flowers. "Doc"had sent me a very SPRING-LIKE flower arrangement ...

Even though it was wet and cold, suddenly my day was bright and happy. Then...

...I dropped my camera and broke it to smithereens. All of a sudden, my day turned dark and bleak. "Doc" reminded me that I had been hinting that I didn't really like my new camera that much and I might require the purchase of a different one.
After that he suggested, in the kindest possible way, that I had dropped it accidentally on purpose. Imagine my shock and surprise!
"No, I can always use my old camera!" I protested with all the martyred self pity I could muster.

...and use my old camera I did!

Here I am with my flowers!

I painfully miss my camera but hopefully I will be able to have it repaired or replaced soon!

I worked on re-copying some of my favorite recipes this afternoon. I'm doing little doodles on each page. They don't look very colorful though. I thought I might enliven with a some colored pencils or pastels.

Old camera again, doing the best it can!

What did I eat today?

L: Chili and cottage cheese
S: Steak and green salad

  • Didn't walk---it was raining
  • Had coffee with girlfriends downtown. Amazing how fast 2 hours flies by when I'm drinking coffee and laughing!
  • Car-less called from Bolivia and filled me in on his life down south. I love hearing from my family! He is going to send me a pic of his new friend. You'll see her here first!
I still haven't posted about my new bike. I hope to do that soon! Just a hint...It's made for comfort, just like me!

Wedding update: Johnny Mike and Cowgirl-n-pearls have set July 9, 2011 as THE DAY!
Yippee! I can't wait...I love them and I love a party!

  2. Hi there! You had asked me about my camera...this is a post about the camera I use the most. My other camera is a Canon Rebel Digital.

  4. Happy Birthday Auntie J!! All the little PBKISSERs are giving you a big SMAK right now! Hope you had a wonderful day, can you copy your recipes for me? HA-Just kidding, you have enough jobs. (To answer your ketchup and jelly question-That's the beauty of the 80/20 or 70/30 rule, No "righteousness" required!! ;)

    Love you! Have a great day!
    Raw-vid said it was your b-day, but Baby B had Dr. appt. and things were hectic. SOOOO, happy late B-day!
