Dum Dum da Dum

I’m so excited!  My Lovely Daughter (MLD) announced her engagement last Saturday.  I know she doesn’t want to make a big thing about it…but I, in my role as Mother of the Bride (MoB), am probably three times more excited about planning her wedding than anyone else, including my daughter and her groom.  They want a wedding without a lot of fanfare, so it’ll probably be fairly small.  However, I (on the other hand) am free to plan a virtual wedding that could eclipse the British (sadly) marriage of Diana and Charles.  I promise not to go totally wild……maybe just moderately wild.

As I travel through the ether to find only the most perfect things for her virtual wedding, even (perhaps) some that will actually be included in her planning, I’ll share it all with you, Dear Reader,  a few of…My Favorite Things.

PS ~~ I’ve included acronyms for my daughter and me, but I will probably continue spell them out because I like the way they look as I type them…  ;o)


Tuckered Out Tuesday

I got my paper done with hours to spare, but I’m sure feeling the letdown now that I don’t have to focus on technical writing.  Today I am  beginning a new class that looks like it will be interesting and fun.  It’s the class that I built the word cloud for. I’ve tried to post the jpg image in here, but it won’t show up on this page.  Back to the wordpress tutorial!

Update on Baby Joseph:  he’s fine, been released to go home!  His family is so excited. Baby Joseph is their first child, first male grandchild, and (at least for now) their first thought 24/7. That’s another miracle for them. Again, thank you for your prayers.

It feels like spring today…all sunshine and a warm breeze.  Everyone is enjoying it, but also worrying because we’ve had very little rain and are looking at having another dry summer.  Where I live it’s largely agricultural and a drought is very bad for all the farmers here.  I hope it won’t be too dry because I love to drive by fields of sunflowers.  Sunflowers follow the sun, so you can almost see them turn their pretty faces to the warm rays of the sun.  Just think…sunflowers as far as you can see…all turning to the sky.  Heavenly.
