Wordful Wednesday ... Morning Musings

Herein are my Morning Musings

1. I left home yesterday morning at 8am for my Digital Media class ... met up with my sister afterward shortly after noon to spend the day together celebrating my birthday. Last Thursday night she broke her toe and since she wasn't walking well today we altered out plans a bit, putting off our intended 'beach & pier photo walk' and late afternoon lunch at Duke's (as described yesterday at Small Reflections). We'll do that another time ... perhaps on Friday (weather and her foot permitting).

2. Since I can't print anything currently, a friend suggested I email my birthday coupons to her so she could print them out for me ... and that's what we did. She gave them to me yesterday at class.

3. My sister and I celebrated at Z'Tejas in South Coast Plaza instead ... starting off with cornbread & honey butter ... sharing an order of 'tostada bites' then a 'pecan encrusted chicken spinach salad with feta cheese' ... and a slice of Ancho Fudge Pie

4. The skies look a bit threatening this morning and rain is predicted for today & tomorrow ...

5. Today at 9am I'm taking Molly to the Doggie Spa for a much needed bath. I've got most of her bedding in the washer currently, I'll vacuum thoroughly and wash her purple collar while she's there so everything will be clean when she returns. We'll both be happy to 'cuddle' again ;-)

Molly returns from her last visit in November of 2009

6. I've got two coupons from Starbucks ... one for a free 'birthday drink' and another for $2 off a hot panini. I'm thinking about stopping for the free drink after I drop her off and the panini when I pick her up to indulge myself ... just because.

7. I've not had much opportunity to visit the past few days but am hoping to do some catching up today if my computer will let me do so. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Of course, that makes it challenging to type ;-)
I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

Love the photos. We need a spa for doggies.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Maude Lynn said...

Lovely colors in those sky photos!

Momisodes said...

More rain? Oh no.

I just love it when our dog gets a good bathing. I truly think they feel much better afterward, too!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Your food sounds and looks yummy! Tell me, is the weather always like this in California? What about that song "It Never Rains In California"? Also, I've heard it really never rains in San Fransisco. Is that true? Are these just too many quetioons? That's just me, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY again, anyway!! I'm hoping to print out your flowers and take them to the garden center today.

Happy belated birthday. It's always nice to get out and celebrate. It only comes once a year.

Molly is a cutie pie. I can see why you would treat her to a spa.

Beautiful sky photos.

Suburban Girl said...

Sounds like you had quite the celebration. A digital media class??? Will you going to teach us all some things?

Caterina Giglio said...

Molly is so sweet!

Dimple said...

Molly looks like a sweetheart; I bet she's a good cuddler!
Thanks for the visit, I need to see if I have any crocus yet...

Barb said...

Happy Belated Birthday - is it your magical 65th? Lunch with Sis sounds Yummy - esp the pie.

Karen said...

Boy did that lunch sound yummy! And yes, I'm a firm believer in plenty of indulgence--most especially during our birthday week!

Tammie Lee said...

Happy Birthday dear lady!
I wish you a year that feels wonderful to you! We could have almost celebrated together, my birthday was the 20th. Sounds like you had a yummy celebration.

Martha said...

Happy Belated Birthday! Again, (still) I have been such a bad commenter. I laughed that you mentioned your free birthday drink coupon from Starbucks. Tara and I shared mine when we went window shopping on Tuesday! There is nothing (well almost) like walking around a quiet mall with a nice White Choc Mocha (or your drink of choice!)
