Happy Birthday Treats

It's my birthday today. I know, it is not a Wednesday, but I worked yesterday in exchange to today's whole day off. Aside from I-am-still-sick-with-a-cold, and I need a break from wearing a mask, I deserve a day off on my day. That is why I am late posting in ABC Wednesday.

Here are my Hs this week.

  1. My teen daughter gave a bag of gifts with Hostess donuts, Hershey's candy, Half and Half Iced tea, a Happy Birthday balloon, and a Happy Birthday card. Paul gave me flowers and a box of chocolates. There is an h in chocolates, so it counts. 
  2. H is for ham. I am still enjoying the $6 half-ham I bought from Costco.
  3. My dryer broke so I have to add that I have to hang my clothes these days. Thanks for the rack that I kept from a long time ago. I thought I donated it.
  4. Speaking of donation, and enough about me, since yesterday was the beginning of Lent, I decided to do something different and declutter my home and collect some bags of things to donate. I am giving up stuff that other people can still use and donating them to my favorite group Vietnam Vets. Talk about dual purpose act--cleaning my home and helping the vets. Now that will make me happy.

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
