I've tried to post this entry four times and I'm getting a mess of
that html coding glitch. So it was either no update for Journey
to Peace or no bold, italics or linkage. When the glitch is
fixed, you know I'll link-away!
This is Hunny with a fresh haircut - notice the bow and big smile!
It's been an incredible week - again! I'm starting to get some energy back. I've been feeling completely wiped out. But these last two days have been high-energy with lots of action. I can hardly believe I haven't written about it.
Yesterday, Robbie met me at the dogpark. Or, well, I met her there. She arrived in record time. We had a very nice visit. She got to meet Hunny, Sparky, Winnie and Blau ... not to mention a bunch of other dogs and dogwalkers. I only wish we could've stayed longer but the sun was getting to both of us. We apparently stayed long enough for Hunny because she actually fell asleep in the park. I'm pretty sure Robbie captured that Kodak moment. [pun intended Robbie]
I always joke about my birthday being celebrated for the entire month of May. But this year, it's been constant birthday wishes, cards and thoughtful gifts. I am truly blessed.
Robbie surprised me with a beautiful gift bag full of goodies. I was [still am] completely overwhelmed. It's funny how well she knows me, just from our journals and the few interactions we've had. Yes, lots of beautiful dragonfly energy from her too!
Later I stopped at the post office to mail a package and found my mailbox was overflowing with more gifts and cards. I almost started crying right there - with a huge smile on my face. Thank you Mia, Mary and Phinney! Details and photos to come.
On my way home from my doggie-day, I noticed a duck and four baby ducklings crossing a major road. I quick-pulled over and ran to them [with camera in hand of course]. They were headed right for me, in the middle of the street. At the same time, a UPS truck was headed toward them. I jumped into the street with both arms spread, to stop oncoming cars. [missing the photo-op] I had no idea what I intended to do. But the mama-duck wanted nothing to do with me so she did an about-face and her ducklings followed as I basically herded them back to the curb. They had come from a manmade pond in the front yard of a city home - on a busy street corner.
One of the ducklings fumbled trying to jump onto the curb. For an instant he was separated from his family and I noticed his moment of panic. It didn't take him long before they were reunited in the pond. I did take pics of them inside the pond but they are dark and blurry. [still working it out with the digicam over here]
Oh, this morning I got my 'new' bed. It looks styling with all the new linens my mom ordered as an additional birthday gift [thank you mom]. I've already watched a DVD in bed. That's how I know I need to rearrange the entire room - again. It's about that time of year anyway. Another project for the weekend.
Because of all this new stuff, I'm needing to clear out a bunch of old stuff. I have a huge closet that is overstuffed with stuff. I think it's time for a yard sale and charity donations.
With this new healthy eating lifestyle [still going strong, by the way!] all my clothes are starting to fall off me. Most of my dogwalking clothes are hand-me-downs. And many were already a little baggy on me. But now, I can't walk in some of them without looking like a wannabe-gangster. So I'll give away the baggy clothes to make room for clothes that actually fit.
I'm loving Netflix so far. I'm still on my two-week free trial. I've already seen the first three DVDs, and two more have been shipped. The turn-around time is speedy!
Pushing my luck with the glitch -- One more Hunny pic for the road...
