For Today...

Outside my window....it's sunny but cold, looks like we had frost overnight
I am thinking....I'm getting old, today is my birthday and I'm 57 years old. Last year I spent my birthday with my mother, and the whole time we're eating Mango Mouse Cake, she kept saying "are you sure it's your birthday not mine?" I aged somewhat during that visit.
I am thankful for...I guess I should be thankful for my health,
From the learning rooms... I'm learning to speak up, and shut up at the same time.
From the kitchen...don't know, cake for sure.
I am wearing...my gardening clothes, it's still too cold to get out there but...
I am creating...I've stripped a table top and now I need to stain it again so I can paint a Arlene Linton design on it. Pictured here. Isn't it cool. Can't wait to start it.
I am going...outside to rake leaves and more...
I am reading....still reading Musashi, and I've started Lotus Eaters
I am hoping...to finish outside today, but I'm sure I will not.
I am hearing....the fridge making it's humming noise.
Around the house... the house is a mess, but it will just have to wait for me to finish outside

Thank you for coming by, I always enjoy your comments you leave, more than you know.I'm the one that needs to learn from the learning room, I say what everyone else is thinking but are to scared to say it at work, and sometimes I get some real harsh looks from the supervisor, hehehehe, O...and the stores, and the Dr's office, well just about every where any more!

Love ya and again HaPpY BiRtHdAy my friend~

Dear Irene, you always make me chuckle. I love it. Your paragraph about your birthday, Mango Mouse cake (dare I ask?) and your mother being confused just made me laugh. You're one of the most original people I've ever encountered. Originality is almost my favorite quality so that's a very good thing.

That table is going to be wonderful ... just like you!~

Ah, thanksfor visiting, Irene. So pleased you enjoyed the morning walk with me. The jacarandas are just beautiful at the moment.

And good to catch up here with you. Happy Birthday for a few days ago! Sorry I missed it! The table looks terrific.

Hope your hip is feeling better. It is so annoying when w start to injure ourselves isn't it. Love your story of last year with your Mum.
