To Grandmother

I know you've seen this picture before, but in honor of my grandmother whom I loved very much, I am repeating it here today.

Speed Demon...

This weekend I bought a bicycle. I have wanted one for four years, so it is a big deal that I finally have one. We've had lots of fun relearning how to ride bicycles again; only to discover just how extremely hilly our neighborhood truly is! What a rush!

I have a dream...

I have been floating on clouds for the past two days due to the possibility of finally realizing a dream. We'll see what comes of it, but it's out of my hands now.

In honor...

... of my 201st entry and my upcoming birthday celebration and extravaganza, I am having a great week. The celebrating has begun and is in full force, which always makes me happy. Hubby is in his super spoiling mode, so I am feeling even more loved and special than normal. I am going out tonight for lettuce wraps with my good buddy Jan, who always makes me smile. On Saturday we're grilling up some hot dogs and enjoying some more friends and having some more fun!

The only bummer in the whole week is the stupid ongoing tooth situation. My root canal did go pretty well last week, although the temporary crown is happening tomorrow and I must admit I'm a little nervous. I've been praying about it for a while now, but only just yesterday began to get nervous. Why specifically? Because a couple people mentioned that the crown still hurt months later and was sensitive to sweets. (Now I know Dr. D will be happy with that, having lectured me last Friday, but still...) So that is why I'm more than a little concerned about this event tomorrow morning. I guess we'll see how it pans out, but at least there are some happy things going on this week to keep my mind off of it!

Riding around in style...

I clearly remember almost everything about the day I met Meredith. It was in one of my all- time favorite stores, Target. (Who knew that store would be so important to my life?) After meeting her, I remember thinking about how very cool and friendly she was. What a fabulous thing that I was right! I say all this because yet again, we're trying to be like Meredith and her hubby.

We just got a second car exactly the same as their second car. It feels good to have two cars with great gas mileage, instead of just the one. It feels really elegant and snazzy to ride around in style in our new spiffy car.

I'm interested to see how next the four of us try to be like each other...
