Yet another ‘bloomin’……


On this day 53 years ago..My parents had their second  daughter….


this very old photo is of me and my Mom….the building in the back is a little cabin in the woods that we lived in..

There are many a tale to tell …but I will keep those under my hat…

Fast forward to today…the time is going by very quickly..on the uphill climb to the magic age of 55…

..with the wonders of the internet there were numerous messages on facebook…some  very nice birthday cards…


a new charm for my pandora bracelet..the gift that keeps on giving..


and a pedicure and lunch with my daughter…something to look forward to in July!!

and of course a birthday cake…
