TWITL – week fifteen – lovely spring time

We had our 27th wedding anniversary on Friday. TWENTY-SEVEN years! It sounds like long time (and it is) yet it doesn’t seem that long ago.

TWITL – week four – stormy days then sunny skies

We had some days of cold and rain and then the weekend opened up to sunny skies. Such is the weather here in the far east Bay Area. I loved the cold days but that one stormy night was a bit much for me. So noisy! I still managed to sleep though so I suppose…

I had another short week at work because I took my birthday off! If you can take off from work for your birthday, I always recommend it. The lovely folks at work had a cake for me for an early birthday moment of celebration. So sweet… On my actual birthday (May 3rd), I stayed up…
