Heaven’s weather?

It’s important to be joyful, no matter what the external or internal circumstances.

It’s just that it’s more fun to be joyful on a day like yesterday.


The weather alternated between sunny and cloudy. It was gorgeously sunny when I walked back to the office after school. The temperature was that great temperature where you can pretty much wear anything you like and still be comfy.  I was wearing a cotton turtleneck to cover my weekend sunburn and a light cardi. And a skirt. And some other things.

Everything is green now, and flowers are bustin’ out all over the place. We just moved into daisy season, and I find myself wanting to gather armfuls and fill my house. But I just enjoy them outside.

I love my commute!

*BTW, I forgot to mention that I did complete all my pre-30 goals. I made the cucumber soup on my birthday eve. It was much better than I thought it would be. Still just a little weird, though.

The big day

I got up early on my birthday to see if I had been transformed into an anchorwoman. No! Hurray! Although, I kind of already knew since I had been on the phone with my mom past midnight. :)

My neighbors were running around, so I had to go into the back to take my pic. We go for the natural land look around here, huh.


Birthday breakfast! Homemade yogurt and chocolate cake! I did not make the coffee.


Birthday lunch. Yes, it was as “delicious” as it looks.


But, a nice family had me over for birthday cake after Zumba! Yes, one of my favorite birthday-type cakes! Yummm….


So, it was a lovely day, and the day after I got to have a fun party with home! It was still my birthday in the States, so it was totally in extended celebration.

Well, gotta get to work!
