I’m packing my bags for this gift from David


Dave's house

From Dave comes a new home to relax and enjoy.

“For your birthday, I found the perfect home.
I give this to you so:
you can have firm Earth under you;
the peace of Water to meditate by;
plenty of Air to renew your soul;
the Fire of inspiration (and no fear of setting your house ablaze)”

Once I get back from my Spain trip, my bags and I will move right in!



And when I feel the need to get away from it all and escape to nature

I can do it in this Mini Pop-Up Camper Trailer

and wish me a most blessed Happy Birthday

What wonderful presents!

I have throughly enjoyed each and every one of them. 

A very heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for your gifts, 

and especially the gift of friendship. 


 As the sun begins to set, the lights are turned off, the candelabra is lit, and the birthday cake is brought out to the acclaims of all:

fall cake

Then grabbing a cupcake, everyone heads back outside to sit around the fireplace and enjoy the flames.


Thank you for joining me at my party.
