To Ana, on her birthday...


This is what I love most about where I live: the beautiful view. 


 It's a bit overcast today, but even rainy days bring beauty.


And smiles, when I look at this beautiful (and funny) card my husband gave me.


Truth is, I am looking at my aging body with curiosity and a certain amount of amazement. 



 Enjoy the rest of the week.

What a great doggie card. Love the eyes. It's your b/day? Well if it is, Happy Birthday! I also just had a birthday this past Saturday. Hope you have many many more and the beauty inside is what counts. I love your doggies and also that beautiful doggie with big wondering eyes. Awesome.

How wonderful that you live near water, I use to near a river in a very very quiet house, until the owner after swearing and promising to me that as long as I paid cash I could stay there until I died, I loved it so much, oh the river, my river....then a few months ago after living there 14 years, he sold it, and now I can only afford an apt, and I'm using all my strenght to get by
