Robert and I attended a birthday party today. It was Linda Gordon’s birthday and she invited us to join her and her family for a birthday celebration. We got to meet Linda and Ed’s children and grandchildren. Her granddaughter had attended the whole week of Comic-Con in San Diego, so she shared photos of her and her mom all dressed up for the show. Linda’s daughter showed me a photo of her and her daughter in full costume. I asked her who she was supposed to be and she said she was Spock’s mother in one of the earlier shows. I gave her a two thumbs up for the costume and for it being related to one of my all-time favorite shows. Star Trek is a fantastic show. I can’t remember what her daughter said she was, but it was definitely one of the ‘stop, pause and check it out’ costumes!
I made Linda a Hot/Cold Lavender scented rice pack and a pyramid birthday card. I didn’t take a picture of the hot/cold pack — wasn’t thinking — but here’s a picture of her card:
Later on in the afternoon, Robert walked into the office to see what I was doing and suddenly he whispered “Deer!” I slowly raised up out of my chair and just as I grabbed my camera to photograph the same doe we’d been seeing in the back yard, across from the left side of the yard came her little fawn — it had almost lost its spots, but you can still see them a bit. These photos aren’t really good because I had to take them through the window of the office, but they’re cool, nonetheless. We’re going to have to get a larger water bowl out there — they drink it dry almost every day.
The water bowl is just a large 18″ Terra Cotta planter saucer, but it’s a couple of inches deep and gets cleaned and refilled to the brim each and every morning.
There was a Morning Dove walking around and the fawn kept following it, trying to catch it to sniff at it (I hope),but the dove never would stay still. LOL Fun to watch.
I made a mistake the other day and allowed a certain printer manufacturer to update their software on my computer. And, naturally, Windows had to do their update. Consequently, my favorite program that I use for all of my flyers and a lot of my cards will no longer run. I uninstalled it and re-installed it and there were still problems so I did a restore back to the end of last month. Still no good, so I’ll have to put it in the shop. <sigh> It won’t get done this month–so I’ll save it for next month. I also want to put my sewing machine in the shop. <sigh> it truly is always something, but life is good.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. We had a beautiful day today.
