Today is my daughter's birthday. She turned 26. Wow, I'm not sure where the years went. We chatted for a while today. She had work but this evening her boyfriend is taking her out to dinner. She said she went out to lunch with friends from work so not a bad day. I'm so proud of the woman she's become. She must have a bit of adventurer in her as she struck out on her own and moved hundreds of miles away, knowing absolutely nobody just so she could have a good job. Although she is far away she has made a life for herself there, made some good friends and met her boyfriend. I have hopes that maybe one day she'll move back but otherwise I'll have a place to go visit. Minnesota is a beautiful state - very cold though!

It was bitterly cold this morning, but I did go for a walk. I didn't realise just how cold it was! The sun was shining though and I felt as though I had to get out. The roads were a lot clearer so I managed to get most of what I wanted done today. I think I do have to go out tomorrow. I am itching to get back into my craft room. I didn't do any today. I wrapped some more presents. It's driving me crazy. I absolutely hate wrapping. Thankfully it's almost done.

Today's photo - a visitor to the snowy garden. Poor squirrel needed some food!


  1. Happy birthday to your daughter! It certainly sounds like she is a very mature and independent young woman. You obviously did a good job with raising her to be someone who is able to stand on her own two feet. :)

  2. Good for your daughter and, as Bless said, it's a very positive reflection on your parenting.
    It looks so cold in that photo. Here it's mild and damp and not very nice really.

  3. Happy Birthday to your daughter.

    We have pouring rain here all night - need an ark soon!

  4. Sounds like she has made a great life for herself. My daughters are 28 & 25. Cute picture of cat too.
