BYBS and Sacred Life Sunday

"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
Cherokee Indian Proverb

1. Tomorrow is my birthday. I'll be 64 years young ;--)
I'm grateful to be in good health with energy to learn & do new things ... pursuing learning all the time. I'll be celebrating at Small Reflections on Monday so I hope you'll drop by if time permits.
2. Last Thursday afternoon my Writer's Workshop finally started and it seems like it will be a good group. The course runs through the end of April ... meeting weekly ... and I'm excited by the interactive feedback we'll be giving & receiving one another.

3. My sister & I continue to learn about our Nikon Cameras in the photography classes at the Ritz store in Irvine and yesterday we walked together at the beach snapping many photographs ... some of which I shared today at Small Reflections. 4. If you're buried under snow and need a glimpse of Springtime, drop by Small Reflections to see the floral collages I shared there Friday ... and if you can help me identify the orange, yellow, & white blossoms, I'd be grateful. The purple blooms are early Irises.
5. For additional blessings, I continue to add something daily to my 'thankful list' in the sidebar at Small Reflections.

I apologize for my typos I didn't see before sending. Since you were a teacher, you can probably figure out the words anyway. I will try better next time.
