|Marilyn Monroe and Marilyn Meringue|
This morning I had to wrestle with myself to go out walking with the Fairhaven ladies, but I went, even though it was raining. Not hard enough to convince myself that I should stay inside, and what if it stopped while I was sitting around wishing I had gone? Well, it rained lightly for the entire seven-mile walk, so I didn't stick around for coffee afterwards, realizing that as soon as my feet figured out that I'd stopped, they would decide to get cold (they were squishy wet). Now I am home, warm and toasty, and very glad I went.
This afternoon Judy and I will go to the Bellingham Chamber Chorale to hear their annual Christmas concert. My friend Al sings in it, as he reminded us in an email last week. It should help to get me in the holiday mood. Plus I saw that my community food co-op has just put Christmas wreaths out for sale. When I walked by them this morning (on my way to a latte) the delightful smell was also another reminder that Christmas is not that far away!
The creativity of some people never ceases to amaze me. Everywhere is now looking very Christmassy. have a good weekReplyDelete
That is a great cupcake. I don't see pastries like that around here.ReplyDelete
You sure are the stalwart hiker. Although the weather here is beautiful today, I used the morning for grocery shopping and errand running before coming home to start a marathon of cooking. I've finished a few dishes but have more to cook this afternoon. So, no outdoors for me today.
christmas is just around the calendar! :)ReplyDelete
i laughed out loud when i got the comparison, too! :)
I love that cupcake!!ReplyDelete
Yes, Christmas is almost upon us...eek! Time to get busy.
I LOVE Marilyn Meringue. Thank you. Smiles are always welcome.ReplyDelete
I hope your birthday week continues to be full of smiles, of love, of laughter...
Ya gotta love his sense of humor. I didn't notice the high heels till you pointed them out. So clever.ReplyDelete
Keep enjoying your Birthday week.
And happy birthday!ReplyDelete
Glad you walked and that you have a warm place to go afterwards.ReplyDelete
I put up the outdoor lights yesterday. We're going to a concert tomorrow afternoon. Christmas is upon us.ReplyDelete
D'Jan, so nice that you enjoyed the walk, even in the rain. I'm like you, don't like to get my feet cold! My daughter and SIL put up a real tree, and the smell is wonderful.ReplyDelete
So you're having a lot of fun. A good walk, a good coffee and a concert!ReplyDelete
We are on Whidbey Island this week with Jill and the kids. It will probably be Monday before i get a blog posted about it. It was very windy this morning and kite surfers were out on the bay. But except for a bit of light rain, it has been quite comfortable outside as we spent much of the day in Langley, where there is definitely Christmas spirit.ReplyDelete
All I'm thinking of right now is walking seven miles in the cold rain and wet squishy feet. Awk! You guys amaze me. Truly!ReplyDelete
Marilyn is cute! I hope the concert was fun! I'm already in the spirit--playing Christmas music and lighting a pine scented candle. :)
You seem to have a good time despite the bad weather. Keep going!ReplyDelete
First a happy birthday wish to you!ReplyDelete
As I viewed the yummy cup cake I missed the wirey heals. I had to have a second look.
And now all I want is that cup cake. Darn
Some bloggers are very busy creating but I no longer see well so I try my best. I am slower to post too and my errors are many:(
Happy Birthday, DJan. The cupcake is hilarious, and your continued physical activity is inspiring. I'm off to do a bit of tap dancing now.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! I hope you had a special day...just as special as you are!! ;)ReplyDelete
It's been rainy and drizzly and foggy here too. For about a week. And I'm lovin' it!! Walking and birding will not keep me home.ReplyDelete
Hey? Hope you're having a week after birthday week that's filled with MORE fun.
Oh, and that cupcake is a hoot.
I'm glad you posted another one of them. I quite enjoy them. I'm not sure exactly when your birthday is/was.. so Happy Birthday Week!ReplyDelete
Just so you know your robot verify the numbers thingy is up...many people have it today...but not yesterday or the day before...it must be a blogger thing:(ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday week to you, I hope you enjoyed every single minute of it.ReplyDelete
I came over from Kay/Musings to meet you. I enjoyed reading your post.
Wishing you a great week!
What a fun idea for the cupcake.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday, DJan! May all your years be full of good health and adventure.
