Miscellaneous Monday Memes and Musings

Make Time for Small Reflections

1. I hope everyone had a joyous Easter ... I'm sharing more Spring blossoms from my yard today just in case YOU don't have them growing where you live yet. Enjoy!

2. I've felt the earth move a number of times over the past two days but so far found no new damage to my surroundings. This morning just before 6am was a very sharp quick jolt, but the others have been more of the rolling variety. As a native of Southern California, earthquakes (and drought) are simply facts of life, but having recently viewed the devastation in Haiti, Chili, and now south of us in Mexico ... one can only wonder when the BIG ONE will hit us too. I'm hoping for the best today.

3. I have BIG NEWS but it will have to wait because I have no time to share this morning (sorry to be a tease but I'm excited and delighted) since I'm leaving now to meet a friend for breakfast after which we're hitting a local Starbuck's Cafe so she can walk me through the wireless access process there with my new Sony Vaio. It'll be a new experience for me ;-)

Thought for Today
"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it's expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt

I love your Eleanor Roosevelt quote, and am too excited about whatever your news is!! I can't WAIT to hear all about it! I love your flower collage! When I heard about the earthquake on T.V. the first thing I thought about was you. Hoping you were O.K. and that those blue lawn chairs of mine did not get damaged!!!

Living in California is beautiful, but it comes with certain dangers. Happy Blue Monday.

The cold weather and mud slides took out at least half of the over wintering monarchs..it will be years before they can recover....I think Mother Nature is speaking and we need to listen...Michelle
