:: A New Awakening-


Yesterday was so sweet!  Thank you everyone for such warm thoughts and wishes on my birthday.

My youngest daughter brought me…carbs    breakfast-   Yummie!  How could I resist my favorite carrot pecan muffin… and a couple of sausage Kolaches?!    Good thing my birthday only comes ‘round once a year!

I indulged and it was so GOOD!   Tonight she and her hubby took us to Road House Steak house for dinner.  I did way better there… no picture, but I had Steak, Sweet Potato and Green beans… with a couple of tall glasses of unsweet tea!    THAT! was delicious.  Best steak EV.ER!

birthday breakfast 

My oldest daughter and her daughter, brought me hand picked flowers all along their country road… Little jonquils, Iris, Red Bud (from a tree) and er, hmmm… some blue bonnets (from their field) BEAUTIFUL!

birthday bouquet


  • My neighbors Red Bud tree!

Both yesterday and today were such lovely weather days, though  yesterday was cooler and a bit windy!  It was still sunny and nice! 


  • Wisteria …starting to bloom! Very soon they’ll be big and showy… more pictures to come.

I’ve been out in the yard looking at all the flowers that are starting to bloom—Spring is finally here! The flowers are beautiful but… 

I’m hoping more than anything—to get something planted to eat! (Crazy weather has this gardening amateur…off schedule for sure!)



  • My very own Red Bud tree—purchased from a nursery 2 years ago.  This is the first time to bloom.  It’s still so small…but I’m so happy to see it bloom!


  • Iris (purple)  about to bloom… I only discovered these in my yard a few years ago.  All the rest are white! 

I love seeing all these early happenings of new life!  Little buds everywhere… it all makes me smile!

Til Next time, Be Blessed

I thank God for making us a world that is constant enough to manage, but always changing and renewing. In Spring, this is most evident. Love you,'s to another 50!

Happy Belated Birthday! Now that I think of it, I haven't had a steak in years!

How lovely to see everything in bud, my friend. Spring is here - more where you live than where I live, but it's technically
