wow--life can be "full" sometimes and then "one" has to wonder--which way do I turn now???
There is soo much yet I need to post about and I know I can not do it all tonight!!!
Guess who had a Birthday today---?????
I was not going to say anything about it--but I had some "surprises" and I know you'all like surprises--so here goes-----
Little sister and I decided we would just go over town for awhile today to celebrate--First thing this morning she does 'drop' in and she has a card for me--and two gifts--one is a Walmart gift card and the second is a gift certificate for my favorite NON quilt shop--the Country shop---around 11:20 we go to head out and are going out the front entrance when I see a lady going in the other entrance carrying a big plant--so I go after her to see who she is looking for and she is looking for 'me' of all people--so I take the plant--
as you can see there is two picks in it--one says "Happy Birthday" and the other one says "Happy Mother's Day"---so I read the card--it says---L, A---and at this point I have no idea who "A" is---Well my dear blogging friends--I now know who "A" is--I had thought that is was just a code and this person did not really want me to know who "she" was--but in reading some back post comments--I realized that I need to read them more carefully--cause a regular reader--and a friend whom I email every single day and she emails me--always signs them L, A---thank you so much Alice Ihnen!!
Look what happened Alice while I was out today--Mr. and Mrs. Blue really like the new plant toooooo!!!!!
Of course the first place little sister and I went was to the----Quilt shop--- and these came home with me----I have had my eye on this black and pink for awhile now---so!!!
Then we went across the street and had "Pizza" for lunch and then on to the country shop--
there is three new things in this photo---the birdhouse--the berry vine with the pink berries and green leaves with rusty hearts and the newest bird to this 'bird house'!!!!
I need to do another picture tomorrow of the bird house--you can not see one of the reason's I got this one???
OH--Little sister is now out of the dog house--forgot to tell you---you see 'we' both wanted this bird house too--but she let me have it seeing as it was my B-day!!!!
We got home and a while later the door bell rang--when I went to answer it it was Janey--My Mary's daughter--and this is what she handed me--
she said -- Happy Birthday--from her Mother Mary---and that now I would always have something living to remember Mary by!!!!
Maybe I will have to rename my place to "Di's greenhouse"!!!! I sure hope my "green" thumb stays green or all my new and old friends will leave me!!!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo--stayed tuned tomorrow for all the "other" package photos that I have received this week and their stories!!!!
Hugs to all--and praise to God for making "friends" for all of us to enjoy and to enrich our lives---Di
