Another year flew by.....

 
And I survived!


I even managed to have lots of adventures in the great outdoors despite the pandemic.


So here's to another year to DISCOVER the beauty that surrounds me....


in the 'wilds of Florida!

I'm thankful to be having a special day and plan to stay outside and PLAY all day, or at least until it's time to come inside for a cup of coffee and a cookie!


Enjoy your day!


Let's CELEBRATE!!!

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays and

01212021, such interesting numbers, they probably only mean Happy Birthday to you! But they are kind of cool, aren't they? I wish for you a wonderful day, a special day for a very special friend. Someone I have come to admire and care about. Happy Birthday!

Oh, Diane! Is TODAY your birthday??? What a wonderful day to celebrate indeed! It's a bright sunny day, with a little warmer temps than we've seen all week...a perfect day for you to stay outside and play all day! I wish I'd known...I'd bring my dollies and we could play..."Hey little playmate, come out and play with me, and bring your dollies three, climb up my apple tree. Look down my rain barrel, climb through the cellar door, and we'll be jolly friends, forevermore!!" Do you remember that little song? If you're as old as me, I am sure you do! I LOVE those pictures of you...so cute and fun loving...I can tell you haven't changed much at all!! Happy Happy Birthday dear friend!!

Hugs and greetings.

Sandi Magle said...

Those photos are the best....I still need to dig in mine, maybe now that the world seems a bit brighter and positive, I will be able to deal with all the memories that old photos drag up. Hugs, we are being cleansed with more snow tomorrow. The sunlight and white makes our world here in Chicagoland clean...even if a bit slippery! Hugs, Sandi

These old photos are treasures, Diane. I loved seeing every one of them. But that last one really made me smile. It's sooooo cute. I like the Alice in Wonderland photo too!

Your Thankful Thursday posts are such a delight.
