Just a spoonful of sugar

According to Mary Poppins: Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, in the most delightful way!

You are my sunshine


"You are my sunshine,
my only sunshine,
you make me happy,
when skies are grey."

"I don't go crazy.
I am crazy.

I just go normal from time to time.

Get it right!"

CA for beginners

This image has been traveling around Face.Book for a while and I realized that I really wanted to include it here -- after all, CA is the only state I have ever lived in. Also the writing across the state is pretty much spot on -- and even when it is not it is still amusing!  Hope everyone is doing alright

Rain and Hail

We have had rain and hail the past night/day/night -- then today it is all sunshine (and wind). On one hand I enjoy the variety in the weather but on the other it would be nice to go more than a day and a half without changing wardrobe again *amused* How lovely that is really the current "worst" thing to be worried about at the moment!  Tried to take a photo of the sudden (and short) downpour of hail last night.  This shot (back balcony) was the best I could do.  Happy Wednesday everyone!

Pretty Bird!

Pretty Bird!

EDIT: God works in ways we cannot understand... so happy for a blogger I have been following for a while, she got the most unexpected news this week and stories like this post: THE LAST FRONTIER help me remember that I need to relax, keep breathing, take one step at a time.

"Valentine" animals!

This adorable penguin has a perfect white heart on its chest!

These two swans are beautiful plus it looks like they deliberately are forming the shape of a heart with the curves of their necks and their beaks touching!

Happy Valentines Day everyone, smile!

"Librocubicularist" -- or a really long way to say bookworm *amused* This cute image was on a Face.Book page and I had to put it in this "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" post.  Although I would change the mug to say CA since it is the only state I have ever lived in (with my 30th birthday coming up next month I can safely say it is the only state I will live in for the first three decades of my life)! Overall life is going alright and book reading has been one of my primary activities recently. Hmm...On second thought the image would also be changed from shades of pink to shades of blue (or perhaps mid to dark greens). Happy Monday to everyone

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

Let's Go Fly A Kite
(From the D.isney M.ovie M.ary P.oppins! Great song to lift your spirits!)

Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You're a bird in flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh
Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite

When you send it flying up there
All at once you're lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze over houses and trees
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

O, oh, oh
Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite

Miscarriage Today (of another friend of mine)


A friend since high school was one of many friends currently expecting. The image above (College Sweethearts/First Date; Bride and Groom/Wedding Date; Mom and Dad/Due Date) was their adorable Face.Book announcement.  Today however, instead of the anticipated due date of 6/9/13... the baby girl had no heartbeat and so she announced on F.B. that their miscarriage occurred today -- 2/9/13. Sending prayers, love and strength to her, her husband, and their family... Of course also to everyone who has been unfortunate enough to be in their position as well, I always have you guys in mind.

Every time I feel another piece of my heart break, for I know there is nothing I can truly do but be there and help any way all of you will let me.  They are simply asking for prayers/positive wishes to help them get through this period of time.

Cruelly ironic, the date -- instead of a live baby on 6/9 today (2/9) their baby girl is gone and now there is another angel watching over all of us...

Thrive (Kaiser Permanente)

Many reasons to be thinking of/to be at Kaiser for multiple family and friends during the month of February, just wanted to pause and pray for all of them (also those I do not know but who need health prayers)

Hello February

Hello everyone, today is the first day of a new month and I am hoping that I will be able to make a couple of positive changes this month.  Also hoping to read at least one new book, go to one movie with a friend, and help at least one family member and one stranger.  The "smaller" the goals hopefully the easier to achieve, correct?  Oh, and to continue to increase walking.  Last week I did not go once. This will be a positive month -- willing things to be helps to decrease the chances of negativity -- right? ::HUGS:: to all
