Thanks to all for the birthday wishes. I had a good one.

Presents didn't come out till after we got home from dinner. We were afraid that the critters would start the party without us, as they occasionally do.

We partied down with Birthday Cake and Netflix binging.
And the celebrating is still going on.

One of my bday gifts:
Came in this:
I found it fascinating how it decompressed in half an hour. Have you ever had a memory pillow packed like this?

Street Art Thursday AND....

To celebrate, help yourself to a free download of Makita today.
When she came back, it was for the dog. She hadn’t planned on breaking up a dog fighting ring too.

My brother is in the hospital with two clots in veins leading out of the liver.  He does have a good doctor that is running lots of test, so I'm confident he'll get to the bottom of the problem.
The HH has pneumonia and acute bronchitis.
Other than that, it's same-o-same-o at the Cox household:)

How was your weekend, blogger buds? I trust it was relaxing, productive and fun. We finally got to celebrate Christmas, and their birthdays, with the kiddos. So, of course, ours was good:)
Last week, I received not one but two lovely surprises in the mail.
A Christmas card from our blogger bud and calligrapher extraordinaire, CJ Kennedy. My photo doesn't do it justice.
Verse Inside
Is this not purrfect? Thank you so much, CJ. I love it.


Bleubeard and Elizabeth sent me this beautiful wall hanging.

One of the things I really like about this hanging is the subtly. That small, four letter word on the hanging says as much as the picture itself.  Thank you so much, Elizabeth. I love it.

This arrived yesterday from Ro.  A happy  journal and lovely card. 

Thank you. I am truly blessed to have such great blog friends.
The Garden in January.
As you can see, the kale's doing well. It's the second winter for the white kale, which is surprising.
The Christmas/Lenten Roses are almost blooming.

What is wrong with this picture?
 I've had to deal with unpleasantness in Januaries of the past but never dandelions. Good grief!

Condolences to the Bears' Fans. :(

Thursday's Street Art

Philly is known as the City of Murals, and rightly so.  I'm going to pass along a few out of the many that we saw. Most of these were taken from the car so they aren't great shots.
More next week.
AND...A picture my daughter painted.

Wacky Wednesday


Certain that birds had managed to sneak into the house and his domain, he took one of these bad boys out.
